The only way is up for Yaz and her Balsall Common musical

Centre Stage Drama Group brings an exciting new musical to the stage, written by the group’s talented young writer, actress and Director Yazmin Zahran.  ‘Yaz’ drew inspiration for her creation from Glee, Mama Mia and High School Musical to create a stunningly professional production which runs at the Heart of England School for two nights on the 25th and 26th May.


Yaz’s musical ” Gimme Gimme Gimme… An Idea”, tells the story of High School drama students seeking inspiration for their end of year show, whilst trying to cope with their everyday teenage trials and tribulations.  The show draws inspiration from a mixture of  shows including Glee, Mama Mia and High School Musical, showcasing an energetic, talented and youthful cast, supported by the group’s experienced performers.

The Centre Stage team has also brought top production values to the show as Carl Hemming explains:


“We’ve brought in outside expertise to help us with the show, with a new musical director, choreographer & a singing coach, real professionals who have been kind enough to donate their time & skills to the group.  This is a truly professional production, and certainly one not to be missed!  The show features ABBA songs as the underlining theme to the performance, allowing for audience participation.”


The show’s cast and crew have big plans to turn the show into a memorable event, one which the people of Balsall Common can be proud of.  Of plans for the experience Carl said:


“We’d love it for everybody to really get into this and invite people to get into 70’s fancy dress to help make the show a truly unique experience.  And there will of course be prizes for the best dressed!  This is shaping up to be a wonderful, funny and very lively show, and something different to what Centre stage would normally produce.  The show features many of the junior members & students from Heart of England School, who recently performed in the school’s ‘We will rock you!'”

The show is being performed at the Heart of England school on Friday the 25th & sat 26th of May at 7:30 pm. Tickets are £7.50 adults & £5.00 concessions.  Book now on 01676 534955.
Centre Stage will also be performing a selection of numbers from the show at the Balsall Common Lions Jubilee garden fete and party in the Park
