We have had our first rehearsal where roles have been cast! It went really well. We have acted through the first act and have listened to and sang some of the songs. We know without doubt that this will be a fantastic show. We are still looking to cast some male roles. If you are interested, send us a Facebook Message! We meet every Thursday at Blackwood Miners' Institute at 7:30. You can see a sneaky video on our Facebook page.
What's our current musical all about?
The Forgotten is a Chartist musical - Featuring music by Justin Nicholls, Libretto by Patrick Jones and Vanessa Dodd and directed by Chris Durnall, The Forgotten sounds the silent voices of history in music, drama and song –the voices of working men, women and children who joined in protest against the injustices of the age, and who with a little bread and cheese in their pockets, left their homes on a wet November evening and walked into history. A ragged swathe of humanity, whose journey ended abruptly, when their call for their ‘One Man, One Vote’ was met by government troops and gun fire and their leaders imprisoned and tried.
Come join us ? Thursday evenings 7.30pm in the bar at Blackwood Miners institute
