Say hello to our little friend!

Hello again, dear reader. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? We had so many interesting posts lined up over the last couple of months, but what with the weather, the government, VAR and a dog eating my homework none of them, alas, made it to publication. Despite this plethora of excuses challenges we have been…

Belinda and Nev's Christmas family album

Belinda and Nev have shared photos from their seasonal family get-together.  You can see them here. These are some that didn’t quite make the cut: Phyllis takes a break from cooking the dinner Waggums gets festive Luke has a Herr Flick flashback: “Schwein ein, Schwein ein!”

Ten sleeps to go!

There are just 10 sleeps until we open our Christmas cracker, Season’s Greetings! There are hand rails a-plenty in this season’s show.  Just as well in case any of the characters “go method” on the seasonal spirits!

It's beginning to look a bit like Christmas

The second week of October may be a bit early to talk about Christmas (anything before December 24th is too early to talk about Christmas – Humbug Ed) but at BaCStage we will be talking about Christmas a lot between now and, well, Christmas as we promote our next show, Season’s Greetings.

'Allo 'Allo, what's going on 'ere then?

Welcome to 2019, dear reader. Don’t be deceived by a lack of blog activity lately; we have been busy rehearsing ‘Allo ‘Allo. There is at least one thing in this country related to Europe that is going well… It’s hard work, being an actor, but someone has to do it!

Sound Men

Sound Men

These two are two sound men. You might be looking at that picture and thinking that they look decidedly unsound.  You may also be wondering why they are manning a bric-a-brac stall at a church fete (other denominations, including the absence thereof, are available). This though, is the sound effects table for our next production,…

Listen very carefully… we have Wonderful news!

It’s been a bit quiet round BaCStage Towers lately.  We have mostly been melting in the heat.  You know the heat wave has gone on too long when even the trashy papers can’t be bothered with headlines about it being hotter than Rio / Madrid / Mallorca / Mordor / the centre of the sun…

18

18 and counting…

18 dead deceased murdered copses?  That would be going some with a cast of only 10 characters.  Many secondary causes of death there… 18 days till opening night?  As it happens, at the time of writing there are, but we’re not having a balloon countdown every day. An 18th birthday?  Could be – but who? …

Don't mention the War

What’s going on here then? Does this actor have dodgy knees?  Possibly. Are his trousers overly starchy?  Perhaps. Or is there something altogether more sinister going on? Come along to BaCStage’s next show Secondary Cause of Death and find out!  Tickets on sale now. You can buy your tickets online at TicketSource or in person…
