Back to work

Is it too late to wish everyone a happy new year?  Probably.  It is the middle of January already.  2016 is flying by – it’ll be Christmas again before we know it!

We’re keeping ourselves busy round at BaCStage Towers.  Rehearsals are now in full swing for our next production, Virtue Triumphant.  There is much to do between now and April – our hero must be dashing, or maiden virtuous and our villain villainous.  For some their parts will come naturally; others will require much more acting.  It would be indiscreet to say any more than that.

Don't just sit there - rehearse!

What I can tell you is a bit more about the play itself:

Virtue Triumphant, or, Her Honour in Peril, is a comedy melodrama by Pat Norris.  It is a full-blooded melodrama complete with wicked Squire, handsome hero, beautiful heroine persecuted and turned out with baby into the snow, comic rustics, flirtatious matron, susceptible vicar and other staple ingredients.  Thrilling adventures include a last-minute rescue, a chase, and a plethora of murdered bodies turning into vengeful ghosts.  The basis of the main plot is the Squire’s lust for the lovely Rose and his determination – on hearing of her coming marriage to handsome Richard – to possess her by hook or crook.

Stay tuned for more news over the coming weeks.  Until next time, that’s your lot.
