The Dancing Club

03 March 2018 19:30

The Dancing Club
An empty ballroom is brought to life as tales of dancing and music across generations wake up dance teachers Frank and Wynn. After World War II they inspire a town to keep moving through the traditions of ballroom dance to the explosion of rock and roll, northern soul and disco.

A space to express yourself, you can learn the waltz one night and see Fleetwood Mac, Marc Bolan or Captain Beefheart the next.

Everyone is welcome in The Dancing Club as dreams are made and refuge found. It’s time to learn a new dance and you’re all welcome to try a few steps.

The Dancing Club is based around the true story of Kidderminster legends Frank and Wynn Freeman and comes to life following interviews with over 100 residents of the Worcestershire town.

"I think people underestimate the value of dance schools and how important they are to the social well-being of towns. I wanted to run my dance studio just like Frank ran his."
Len Goodman, dance and TV personality, BBC Strictly Come Dancing 2004 - 2016 and a judge during The Dancing Club's heyday

Music composed by Jon Bates, with choreography from Steve Elias (BBC2, Our Dancing Town), featuring a special recording from Kidderminster Male Voice Choir.

This is a Bewdley Festival event and you can buy your tickets from their web site by clicking here: Buy Tickets.

This is a play that includes ballroom dancing and as such space for the audience is more limited than is usual and we recommend purchasing your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Here I Belong

13 March 2018 19:30

Here I Belong
A thoughtful, compelling and entertaining play portraying 60 years of village life seen through the eyes of one village resident, from youth to the fight to stay in her home in old age. A thoroughly engaging performance by an absolutely fantastic new writing company.

Two actors tell the story of Elsie at age 25, 45, 65 and 85, and her lifetime battle to stay in the village where she feels she belongs. It's where her daughters grew up, her husband died and it's where she's going to stay, come what may.

'Everybody knows someone like Elsie', and this sensitive, honest and intimate show provokes compassion and much discussion.’

Pentabus Theatre is a Shropshire-based theatre company who've been consistently making theatre for rural venues for over 40 years to great acclaim, with a tradition of transforming familiar surroundings for its shows.

The cabaret style show takes place around the audience as if at a party, with the interior of the venue changed for each scene - through bunting, flowers, fairy lights, balloons - with the audience asked to help with the change, or blow up balloons, or sing 'Happy Birthday'.
