BADS History

In the autumn of 1998, Rosemary Lund had suffered from theater abstinence for too long. After an unsuccessful attempt to restore the theater group she and a cuple of friends had run 20 years earlier, Rosemary knew that this was something she had to do alone. That same year she therefore started planning what would become Bergen Amateur Dramatic Society - BADS. In autumn of 1999 BADS was a reality!

The first show produced by BADS was Sleeping Beauty - Tornerose. Scripts were brought inn and adapted, extra part was written inn as needed. This has been a hallmark of BADS. The plays are built up by the British panto style - with lots of humor, singing, dancing and play between actors and audience.
There are no hindrances to becomming an activ member of BADS; like a wheelchair, halting, stuttering, incapacity to remember lines etc. On the contrary, it has given BADS its own style.

The ensamble consists of children and adults of all ages.
The practices begin in September and results in 6 or 7 major performances in Fana kulturhus at Nesttun.
In addition BADS also travels around and visits nursing homes throughout the Bergen area. Here they stage shortened versions of the main production, free of charge. You can also see BADS dancing and singing in the 17th of may parade in town or on Parkdagene in Nygårdsparken.
In short BADS spreads  musical comedy through theater!
