BaCStage needs your help: Treasurer and DIY-ers wanted

BaCStage are looking for a new treasurer to look after our finances for us.  Previous experience of book-keeping would be useful but not essential.  Our current treasurer, Jane, would like to hand the role over to someone else to give her more time for the various other things she does for us.  She is more…

Above and below stairs at Bagshot House

Two weeks ago (already!) we completed our successful run of Secondary Cause of Death.  You can see photos of the production itself over in our production photos section.  Here are some pictures from behind the scenes before, during and after the show.

You might think it harsh to describe these simple, honest folk as peasants.  It may also be incorrect to label them simple or honest, but that’s an altogether different question.   As far as Virtue Triumphant…

Happy Halloween

Mwah, and if you will, hahaha! Our Halloween was filled with scary monsters, cobwebs and a recurring nightmare – where are we going to put all our stuff?! The scary monster responsible for these cobwebs, along with several of its friends, had to be evicted from the outside shed to make more storage space.  They…

It's all gone quiet over there

You might be thinking that the lack of activity on this blog in recent weeks points to a lack of activity at BaCStage towers.  Let me assure you though, dear reader, that nothing could be further from the truth.  It is precisely because there is so much going on that no-one has had time to…

What a cracker!

The seasonal festivities are well under way.  As 2014 draws to a close it’s a good time to take a look back at what we’ve done at BaCStage in the last twelve months. We had two hugely successful shows this year.  In April Murdered to Death knocked ’em dead, and in October Hero paid tribute…
