Our next show, to be staged over the period Thursday to Saturday 16th to 18th November 2017, is a stage play based on the 1977 BBC television play "Our Day Out" by Willy Russell. Willy Russell is famous for his Liverpool based plays including “Educating Rita” and ‘Blood Brothers” which also features, as our show will, children played by adults.
The musical is the story of students from an inner-city school in Liverpool who go on a trip to Conwy Castle in Wales. Mrs Kay teaches a class of illiterate pupils, called the "Progress Class". These are not well-behaved students and matters are made worse when the disciplinarian, deputy head teacher, Mr Briggs joins and tells them they are no longer allowed to go to Alton towers, where they had originally planned to go. Instead they go to Wales. On the journey, they make some stops: at a petrol station, a zoo, the beach, Conway castle and a fun fair. They end up losing one of the children which causes havoc!
Tickets for "Our day out" go on sale via this page on Saturday 1st October 2017.
