OH WHAT A LOVELY WAR - Tickets now on Sale
The musical - Oh What a lovely War will be performed at The New Bradford Playhouse between the 22nd & 25th October 2014 - to tie in with the 100 year anniversary of the Commencement of World War One.
It was the war to end all wars- well not quite; for with the ricochet of one bullet, the entire course of human history was changed forever... By fusing the surreal with the factual, and juxtaposing savagely funny satire with quiet sorrow, the war is presented as the "new attraction" at the Brighton Amusement Pier, complete with syrupy cheer up songs, shooting galleries, free prizes, and a scoreboard toting up the dead! This is a most outstanding musical play about World War One.

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.
