Audition information for Made in Dagenham released

Made In Dagenham Pre-Audtion Advert

Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Made in Dagenham is drawn from the real-life 1968 sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. This strike was influential in the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970. The musical focuses on the leader of the strike, Rita O’Grady, as she encourages the women of the Ford factory to walk out after they are re-classified as unskilled workers, while their male counterparts see their wages increase.  Featuring a rousing score and a choice of good character roles, Made in Dagenham offers parts for all ages.
