Made in Dagenham Box Office Now Open
Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?
Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.

We are looking for our very own Motel, the Tailor. This is Leonard Frey, who played Motel the tailor in Norman Jewison’s 1971 film Fiddler on the Roof.
Motel is Anatevka’s young tailor who dreams of marrying the milkman’s oldest daughter, Tzeitel. To prove himself as a worthy match, he begins saving up for a sewing machine.
He sings ‘Miracle of Miracles’ and has a big part to play as the story unfolds and the town struggles to preserve with their “tradition!”
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come along to our rehearsal evening and have a chat with the Directors.
The members of BAOS Limelight have plenty to be smiling about following the success of their 1920’s gangster romp ‘Bugsy Malone’, performed last week at QMC Hall.
After welcoming a largely new cast into the BAOS family, the hard work began over the summer under the watchful eyes of Nick Brannam (Director) and Simon Eastwood (Musical Director).
Our facebook page hosts photos and videos. Here is a small selection.
At BAOS Limelight, we encourage our youngsters to become immersed into the whole production experience. We had Limelighter’s designing the show programme. Those young tappers amongst us set some choreography and they all took part in the publicity aspect of performing a show.

BAOS were delighted to receive three nominations for the 2016 Daily Echo Curtain Call Awards for our production of West Side Story:
Best Supporting Actress in a Musical
Anita in West Side Story. Sang beautifully and acted believably.
Her routines were the over-riding memories from the show.
Best Musical Director
Did full justice to the beautiful score.
The cream of the region’s amateur theatre talent came together at Southampton’s Grand Harbour Hotel in January for a glitzy dinner dance where TV star Sarah Parish opened the golden envelopes to reveal the winners in each of 37 categories.
We are extremely pleased to announce that Luannsa won her category and was crowned Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for what she described as her dream role. Congratulations Luannsa! We would also like to congratulate Zoe and Trevor on their nominations.
