Made in Dagenham on Tuesday 18th - Saturday 22nd February 2020
Following a highly successful production of Calamity Jane in 2019 at ‘the Space’ at Nottingham Girls’ High School, West Bridgford Operatic Society invite you to join them closer to home for their upcoming production of Made in Dagenham set in Dagenham, Essex in 1968. Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Made in Dagenham is a musical drawn from the real-life sewing machinists’ strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham. The story focuses on the leader of the strike, Rita O’Grady as she encourages the women of the Ford factory to walk out after they are re-classified as unskilled workers, while their male counterparts see their wages increase. Determined not to be treated like the poor relation the women vote unanimously to take radical action and strike for equality. This heart-warming, hilarious musical explores the relationships between these women, their families and the big names that tried to ignore them.
The talented principals and chorus of West Bridgford Operatic Society will sing and dance to a live orchestra under the baton of Sam Griffiths, the Society’s Musical Director and will be directed by the experienced long time society member Tom Parry.
