The 14 year old dynamo broadcaster behind Berkswell Windmill Radio (BWR) has turned his creative forces to theatre by writing his own version of the US TV hit comedy Golden Girls, a production that will raise money for charity and run from 10th to 12th July at the Heart of England School.

 

Liam has taken the critically acclaimed American sitcom which aired on NBC from 1985 to 1992 and reshaped it for the stage, in what Liam believes to be the first ever stage version of the show.

Legendary Madness Musical ‘Our House’ comes to Balsall Common

Our_House_flyer

Balsall Common drama group Centre Stage have taken on their biggest and most ambitious production to date with the Madness inspired West End musical “Our House’, which runs at the Heart of England School in late June.

 

The event aims to build on the success of recent ambitious works such as the acclaimed self-penned Abba-influenced production “Gimme Gimme Gimme … an Idea ” and their reproduction of West End hit Calendar Girls. Centre Stage Chairman Carl Hemming explained a bit more about the production that includes the Madness hits Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love, Driving in My Car and My Girl:

 

“After last year’s success we wanted to rise to the challenge and perform this magnificent successful Tim Firth musical Production.

 

“The musical follows the story of a young boy Joe Casey who has just turned 16 and in his bid to impress the girl of his dreams, Sarah, he breaks into a building site and is caught by the Police. It is at this point in the show where Joe Casey has to make a life changing decision to either hand himself in or run away. The show then splits into two, following the path of the good and Bad Joe.”

Liam, who is the man behind the online radio station Berkswell Windmill Radio, aims to be broadcasting and selling goodies simultaneously from the clubhouse kitchen and elaborates on his plans as follows:

 

“I will be down Berkswell & Balsall Rugby Club from about 12:30 to get the radio set up and the plan is to do interviews with people around the club: members, players, bar staff, caterers and spectators.”

 

There’s two home fixtures at Berkswell’s Meer Lane ground between Balsall Common and Honiley, both kicking off at 3pm: Berkswell’s first string play a vital important West Midlands Division One fixture agains fellow strugglers Ludlow; Berkswell’s 2nds take on local rivals Earlsdon.

 

Berkswell’s 1st XV play a particularly high standard of semi-professional rugby and welcome new visitors. This charity weekend could be a great time to get involved as there is also a catered lunch, which is open to first-time visitors, for which tickets are available at £10 a head. Interested parties should email Lesley Fahy in the first instance at laf61@hotmail.co.uk stating ‘BBRFC Lunch’ in the subject header.
