Made In Dagenham

Made In Dagenham – 19th to 23rd March 2019

Many thanks to everyone who auditioned for ‘Made in Dagenham’ and put time into their audition preparations. The standard of auditions was extremely high and some exceptionally talented people have not been cast in the roles they hoped for. We know this will be a huge disappoint but please bear in mind that casting choices needed to be made based on the specifics of this show, and in relation to other cast members.

On this occasion there are many talented females who we have not been able to accommodate in the female ensemble due to numbers and voice parts. We hope you will consider auditioning for future productions or offer to help out with the show in another capacity. Please keep abreast of future casting opportunities on our website and Facebook, including our forthcoming pantomime “Cinderella” which we will be casting shortly

Made In Dagenham

“Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting new West End musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.

Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?

Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.” © www.madeindagenhamthemusical.com
