Brussels Light Opera Company

Make your pitch for a BLOC show in 2019


The dates of performance are end May 2019 at de Bosuil (@ 360 seats) and end November 2019 at the Auderghem Cultural Centre (@660 seats).

BLOC is looking for shows which accommodate a range of ages and nationalities, with good chorus opportunities. The November show invariably has a large cast and should be suitable for family pre-Christmas entertainment, with auditions held in June. The May show can be more edgy, innovative or
just more suitable for a smaller audience, with auditions in January.

Before making a pitch, you must have a team in place (experienced stage director, stage manager, producer, musical director and rehearsal pianist), and know that the rights (if any) are available. Teams on stage and off are volunteers (BLOC only pays its musical director).

There is currently an ad hoc Show Selection Sub Committee chaired by Jeanette Marino, who is updating our Future Shows List but to make things simple, anybody interested should email by 31st August 2018 at the latest. Those interested should be ready to make their pitch to the committee mid-September 2018.
