Our 2018 Production...

Encore Theatre Company are excited to announce that our next musical production will be Made in Dagenham, to be performed at Castleford Phoenix Theatre from 6th to 9th June 2018.

Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Made in Dagenham, with music by David Arnold and lyrics by Richard Thomas, is drawn from the real-life 1968 sewing machinists strike at the Ford factory in Dagenham, Essex. This strike was influential in the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1970.

The show is an uplifting new British musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.

Auditions will take place on Saturday 6th January between 10am and 6pm at St Joseph's Primary School, Castleford. Call backs will be on Thursday 11th January, with the first full rehearsal taking place on Tuesday 16th January.

More details to follow soon, but in the meantime, don't forget our pantomime Rapunzel Untangled in December!
