Old Time Music Hall Melodrama

Thank you to all those who have put their names forward to take part in the Mad Group Old Tyme Music Hall.
The Melodrama has about eight roles available for those who would like to take part, so please let me know if you are interested.
No roles or acts will be asked to audition.


We Need You!!

The MAD Group are doing an OLD TIME MUSIC HALL PRODUCTION on 9th, 10th and 11th November 2017.

We are wondering if you would like to take part and do your own little mini-act of a few minutes. So far we have 5 acts and a local choir and pianist that have signed up for a fabulous production for the 9th in Acton Village Hall and for the remaining nights in Church Minshull Village Hall.
You won’t need to come to all of the rehearsals – just a few before the performances.

We are looking for Acts like Singers, Jugglers, Magicians, Monologues, Dancers etc etc.
You can do one or more acts of your choice. We have a large Costume Department that you can have access to if you require it.

There will also be a melodrama with a limited number of parts available.
Please contact John Headon before Sunday 2nd July to register an interest by email to:-

M.A.D. Group A.G.M. 2017 & Council meeting.

The A.G.M. was held on 26th April in The Badger Inn, Church Minshull. The previous year’s minutes, Chairman’s Report and Treasurer’s Report were all agreed and the council re-elected for a further year. A Council Meeting then followed and the next production, an Old Time Music Hall was discussed. The ‘Carry on Singing’ choir have been recruited and we now need to see who else would like to play a part or join in the Melodrama cast. This will be circulated to all members via the web and Insight Magazine will advertise it. Some people have already expressed in interest and Acton have booked one night at their Village Hall. Dates are set at November 9th in Acton and in Church Minshull Village Hall on the 10th and 11th. A provisional date for the Spring production 2018 has also been booked. Expenditure on advertising and two lighting dimmer packs were passed and the meeting closed at 9pm.
