BNG The next production
Our show for 2019

We have now held auditions and have a very talented cast for our next production!

This fast-moving, high-energy features the music of MADNESS, who are still as strong today as they were in the 1980s – they played us in to the chimes on BBC1 at the end of 2018, so how more iconic can you get!

We are, however, still looking for young males, ideally aged 15 – 18 to play key support roles, so if you want to get involved with a production but not sure about singing/acting or dancing but think you can give it a go, get in touch – you never know what you can do until you do it!

Email at the earliest opportunity for more details or to arrange to come along to a rehearsal to try us out!
