The magic of radio

Last week we completed a successful run of It’s a Wonderful Life.  The radio-on-stage play format was something new for us, including many roles per actor, lots of accents (and hats), and sound effects created live on stage, among other things.  You can see some photos from the show here, although it must be said…

On Air

Simply wonderful!

We enjoyed a simply wonderful opening night last night.  Here’s what one happy audience member had to say: “I for one was completely held by your performances.  It was utterly refreshing to see something so different from BaCStage … Assimilating the adverts into the performance was inspired. Sound effects on stage compelling.”  There are still…

It's a Wonderful Cast

There’s just a month to go until our next production, It’s a Wonderful Life! As previously mentioned on this very blog, the “radio on stage play” format will be something rather different.  We won’t be having a fully detailed set, preferring instead a simple backdrop.  All of the cast will be on stage for the entire…

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…

It's a Wonderful Life, being an actor

Our autumn production for 2018 is to be It’s a Wonderful Life, a “radio on stage play” adaptation of the classic movie. Our regular reader will know that we planned to put this on last year but were unable to do so due to a lack of available acting talent at the time.  It’s such…

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. We’ve finally broken him, if not his sets.  Long-time set-builder and occasional gorilla…
