Our House - the Madness Musical by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd
By Tim Firth
Music and lyrics by Madness
OUR HOUSE combines a witty and brilliantly-crafted romantic tale with the energetic and often madcap songs of Madness. Our House is the story of Joe Casey who, on the night of his sixteenth birthday, takes Sarah, the girl of his dreams, out on their first date. In an effort to impress her with bravado, he breaks into a building site overlooking his home on Casey Street, which is owned by Mister Pressman, a high-end property developer. The police turn up, at which point Joe’s life splits into two: the Good Joe, who stays to help, and Bad Joe, who flees.
Robin Hood and Babes in the Wood Pantomime

Tickets now on Sale
We have selected another of Alan P Frayn,s wonderful Pantomime Scripts to entertain you with. This time In January (due to a very full year). We have a wonderful cast in place and rehearsals are underway. Here is what the Director Kazia Gamble has to say about it.
"I've been busy making plans for my first Panto with Bradford Players.We have a magical fairy to set the scene, a Principal boy and girl who fall in love after two minutes, a Baddie for the kids to boo, a couple of idiots to mess everything up and a Dame(Nurse Nellie Nickerlastic) to keep everyone in their place. Add to that mix a Medieval Castle, a Forest camp, a schoolroom full of naughty "children", a plot that goes horribly wrong, a spider, a ghost etc.etc.etc.....it's all there, plus fabulous songs, colourful costumes , amazing dance numbers and a stage full of happy people."
Legend tells the story of courage and friendship as Robin and his trusted band of Merry Men try to outfox the greedy Sheriff of Nottingham. Meanwhile, Nurse Nellie Nickerlastic is desperately trying to protect the Babes from the clutches of the Sheriff’s bungling henchmen, Snivel and Grovel.
It’s fun and frolics all the way with a hilarious schoolroom scene, not to mention the mayhem of Nellie’s haunted boudoir! Cram-packed with comedy, this true pantomime version offers plenty of audience participation and honest-to-goodness family fun
Why not make a note in your diary now so you do not miss it. Something to look forward to after Christmas, and chase away those January Blues.

Review of Oh What A Lovely War 22nd October 2014 by James McPherson
Briiliant. A superb ensemble show. Not to be missed. This is the only way I can describe The Bradford Players production of Oh What A Lovely War at The New Bradford Playhouse.
I had never seen the show before and wondered if it was right to present a show about war. I am very glad I saw Oh What A Lovely War. It is sensitively presented and an excellent way to remember with respect the people from all parts of the World who died in the First World War.
I laughed, cried,sang along with the songs and learnt a lot I did not know about the First World War . The show is a roller coast of emotions as it tells the story of the First World War and the people involved. Excellently directed, first class choreography and a superb band that does not drown out the singing. The ending is one of the most emotional I have seen in any show.
I had two little concerns which, from comments I heard, were shared by other members of the audience. During the First Act it was hard to read the information that was projected onto a curtain which did spoil the effect. Second, I would have loved to have been able to properly applaud the cast and the band at the end. Perhaps the cast could have returned to the stage after a few moments to take a bow. Having said that this is a show not to be missed.
Oh What A Lovely War runs until Saturday night and is well worth seeing.
