My Friend Miss Flint cancelled

Unfortunately we have had to cancel next month’s production of My Friend Miss Flint. It was the only sensible thing to do, what with one thing and another. Much as we try to provide a bit of escapism for ourselves and our audiences, sometimes real life has a nasty way of refusing to be ignored.…

Ho, Ho, and ummm… oh yes, that's it – Ho

Well, dear reader, Christmas is almost with us once again.  Throw a Yuletide log on the fire, get yourself a glass of hot totty and snuggle up as we look back on another year of BacStageyness. In the Spring we revived Virtue Triumphant so that we could murder several of the cast on stage each…

Compliments of the season

2015 is almost at an end.  It’s been a busy old year, with four (yes, four!) different plays.  Our February panto was Dick Whittington and his Cat, and in October we put on three one-act plays, A Talk in the Park, In Need of Care and Night at the (Brick) Museum.  Going into 2016 we…

Whatever happened to…?

The four teenagers gathered in the playground behind the Old Day School to watch the sunset. They had been meeting there more frequently of late, playing hookey, or whatever it is that young people do when there are no old people around to tut at them disapprovingly. Recently they had all starred in BaCStage’s smash…

On a journey with Dick and Tommy

We’ve been on quite a journey with Dick, Tommy and friends.  We’ve welcomed many new faces on-stage and behind the scenes, rehearsing twice a week for the past six months and playing to full houses in each performance.  It’s been a big production in more ways than one! You can see photos from the show…

And now our show is done

…Dick and Tommy clearly won, Queen rat she was defeated, By a tiger she was eated. Dick Whittington and his Cat was a “roaring” success.  We played to full houses for each performance, which I do believe is a first for BaCStage.  Pantos are a major undertaking (which is why we only put one on…

We're half way there already!

Our first two performances of Dick Whittington and his Cat have flown by in the blink of an eye and now there’s only today’s matinee and evening performance to go. The rehearsals earlier in the week went well, but having live audiences to play to brought the best out of all of the cast and…

What on earth is that?!

Seriously, what is it? It is, of course, part of the show.  All will become clear in the next week. I’ll give you a clue – it is not Dick Whittington himself, nor is it his cat.  It also appears to have more than two legs… BaCStage presents “Dick Whittington and his Cat” a pantomime…

Keeping a roof over our heads

The thing that we are best known for at BaCStage – hopefully at any rate – is larking about on stage for the entertainment of our loyal fan.  Over the last couple of years or so we have taken on another important task, namely looking after our new home, the Old Day School in Bluntisham.…
