2013/14 Production Plans!

Production project plans and dates.

Our first 'production project', in mid-November, will be called 'Trench'. It will explore how the Performing Arts and Music have portrayed war and conflict. It coincides with national events commemorating the start of the First World War. There will be opportunities to create new work or present scenes from classic and contemporary theatre; ideas include - silent performance: wifi headsets playing individual music and drama compositions; Extracts from the musicals 'Miss Saigon' and 'Mother Courage and her Children'; Extracts from classical drama including Shakespeare and Greek Tragedy.

'Our House' - The Madness Musical

Our March 2015 production will be 'Our House', with music by the group Madness. It is an Olivier Award winning musical with greats parts, a great story and great music!
