The Addams Family - Postponed

Due to the COVID-19 measures of the Belgian government BLOC has made the decision to postpone 'The Addams Family' until February 2021 (actual date and location to be confirmed). 

Customers who have already bought tickets for 'The Addams Family' will be contacted and given the opportunity either to receive a full refund, or to re-book their seats for any date, regardless of the price, when the new dates for the show are announced. 

Andrà tutto bene!

In accordance with the government guidelines on COVID-19, all BLOC activities have ceased, up to and including 3rd April 2020. The Committee is constantly monitoring the situation, and will update you with any further information as soon as we receive it.

The AGM, planned for 26th March, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, 28th April at 19:00, subject to confirmation.

Cast Announcement

The Audition Panel has had a tough time choosing a cast from the numerous great auditions we saw and heard from so many very talented people. In the end the panel were thrilled with the group who came closest to the vision of our Stage and Musical directors.

We are happy to present the cast of BLOC’s spring show of the Addams Family, the Musical.

Thank you!

A very big thank you to all those who came out for auditions for the Addams Family. In the end we had almost 100 candidates for our initial (watch that space) cast of 40. It was such a great sounding chorus on practice nights – so sad we can’t take all of you. So many talented, funny, warm renditions for our solos. And a very big bravo to our younger candidates who had to brave the very scary audition process. The audition committee will be deciding soon – wish us luck!!!!
