Aldridge Musical Comedy Society
50 years on and still going strong!
Aldridge Musical Comedy Society are celebrating their 50th anniversary of the company being founded with their second show this year but this one is to be performed in the town where it all began.
They will be performing Smokey Joes Café at Aldridge Youth Theatre (Noddy Park Road, ALDRIDGE, (Walsall) West Midlands WS9 8NQ) from the 8th-11th November 2017. The show is packed with the songs of Leiber and Stoller from the 50’s and 60’s including Poison Ivy, Stand by Me, Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock and On Broadway. It is being performed with a concert approach to give opportunity to multiple cast members to take parts. It has been creatively put together by the production team consisting of Julie Lamb, Director and chairwoman of the society, musical director Mark Bayliss and choreographer, Sarah Hemming. Tickets are available on 01543480626 and priced from £8. It is already looking fabulous with nearly 2 months to go, so it is definitely not to be missed!
This show is following the successful celebration concert that was performed in May this year which allowed the company to perform songs from shows they had done over the 50 years since they began, although the difficulty was picking just 30 numbers! The company still has members that were involved in the first show and many that have been with the society for over 20 years.
A spokesperson for the company said ‘There is so much talent within the company and the concerts we have done this year have given us the opportunity to showcase the depth of talent we have. It is nice to be back performing in Aldridge and working with the community’
AMCS are preparing for a big production next year, West Side Story to be performed at the Prince of Wales Theatre in Cannock to culminate the Golden Anniversary celebrations and we are looking for new members to join us for this spectacular production. If you are interested in joining please call Sarah on 07792002083.
