Boston Operatic Society was preparing for its production of Kiss Me Kate 10 years ago.

Standard reporter Sharon Pell was invited to join the society at one of its rehearsal sessions at Staniland Primary School.

There was concern it would be the society’s last-ever show at Blackfriars Theatre and Arts Centre, with the venue facing closure.
