BMOS Musical Theatre Company

Committee Members


Patrick Pryce


 Pat joined BMOS in 2010 making his debut in Wallop Mrs Cox at the Hippodrome. Since then he has played the lead of Robbie in the Wedding Singer, Zach in A Chorus Line, Jigger in Carousel, Luther Billis in South Pacific and Mordcha the Innkeeper in Fiddler on the Roof.

Claire Hemming


Claire is certainly part of the wood work! Having received her 20 year service medal from NODA at the end of 2013. Claire’s passion is for dance and she trained in Ballet, Tap, Ballroom and Latin. Some of her favourite shows include 42nd Street, Seven Brides, West Side Story and Crazy for You. Claire was thrilled to be taking part in 2014 production of South Pacific, returning o the New Alexandra Theatre again after the success of Carousel 2013. Claire maintains the motto ‘you are never too old to dance!’.

Maria Raymond


Maria has been involved in Musical Theatre since the age of 13 and has been dancing since the age of 2. Her mother was heavily involved in local theatre groups as she grew up, so not surprisingly she got the bug. Maria has done a variety of roles both on and off stage – and is currently the company treasurer. Working within the financial industry when the past treasurer stepped down, she was asked to support until someone else could take up the role. That was 14 years ago!
Whilst being on the management committee can be a stressful and time consuming role, when the finished production is put on stage, and the audience shows their appreciation during the performances, it is all worth while. History is now repeating it’s self as her daughter has become involved in the productions as well.

John Ryan

Social Secretary

 John has been a member of BMOS since 1996. Previous shows that he has appeared in with BMOS are Oklahoma!, Red Hot and Cole, Hello Dolly!, The Sound of Music, Crazy for You, A Chorus Line, Carousel, South Pacific, The Full Monty, Fiddler on the Roof and Sunshine on Leith. John is an active member of the BMOS committee and currently holds the position of Social Secretary.

James Donnan

Committee Member

James has been with BMOS since 2013, when he joined the company for Carousel. Since then he has been involved on or off stage in every production, including as Avram in Fiddler on the Roof, and Doc Pearce in Calamity Jane. James has performed in musical theatre since he was at school, and is enjoying bringing some of his favourite musicals to the Alex stage.

Tim Reeves

Committee Member

Tim is a relatively new member to BMOS having joined the company during their popular and greatly well-received production of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ in early 2015.  Two shows later sees him taking on the role of a military scout in Calamity Jane, BMOS’ next big production at the New Alexandra Theatre in the heart of Birmingham.

With a background in animation, having worked on commercial VFX, games and childrens TV, this ‘stage stuff’ is all very new, but in his own words he ‘couldn’t be in better and more welcoming company
