SPEND SPEND SPEND
This musical is based on the true story of Viv Nicholson, a Yorkshire housewife, who in 1961 had the biggest ever football pools win of £152,319. When asked what she was going to do with the money she replied “I’m going to spend, spend, spend “ and that is precisely what she did.Her rags to riches and back to rags story took her through five husbands, fast cars, bankruptcy and booze.
"Very special - a magical mix of a fine score, a strong plot, full of social realism ... It's the biggest British winner in years." - News of the World
"... the most glorious new musical I can recall ... a working-class 'up yours' fixture among West End musicals ..." - Financial Times
"... blessed with heart, humour and irresistible humanity." - Daily Telegraph

Bradford Players next production is the play Brassed Off - at The Kala Sangam 21st to 24th September 2016
By Paul Allen from the screenplay by Mark Herman
This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
Grimley Colliery is set to close as the accountants say there's more money in it shut than open, even after redundancy payments. It means 1200 job losses, a dying town and the loss of its brass band. But under the leadership of Danny, coughing with coal-dusted lungs, the band is somehow transformed into British champions with local lass Gloria whipping up the money needed to get them to the Albert Hall.
There will be a read through of the play on Tuesday 19th April 2016 at The Parkside Community Centre Avenue Road Bradford BD5 8DB at 7.30pm. If you are interested come along and find out what the play is about or contact us on 07977011800, or on our facebook page.
Auditions will take place on Tuesday 26th April 2016
Rehearsals will probably be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings @ the Parkside Community Centre.
Excert of the REVIEW of OUR HOUSE by Philip Lickley
"With summer finally here there’s nothing that says getting into the season than by listening to the music of Madness and thanks to a production of 2002 ‘Our House’ jukebox musical performed by the Bradford Players in the Playhouse I could. This high energy and riotous show put on by the local amateur dramatic group over five performances in June felt like the sun had come out in the auditorium thanks to the energetic dance routines, fun well performed songs and a cast thoroughly enjoying themselves.
The Bradford Players delivered the goods with their version of ‘Our House’. Taking what is already a much loved band with a much loved discography, their take on it was full of energy, with high-octane choreography, visual set pieces and prop work and a cast and band that worked together to bring the story and songs to life. If anyone asks me now when summer began in 2015 it was with that Saturday night in the Playhouse."
