Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society
Blockbuster hit Made in Dagenham motors into the county town next month.
Hertford Dramatic & Operatic Society presents the show at Hertford Theatre from Tuesday, October 10 to Saturday, October 14.
Based on historical events of the Ford Dagenham strike of the Swinging 60s, Made in Dagenham follows factory girl Rita O’Grady (Steph Fisher), who must balance her role at home as she becomes an unlikely feminist icon in the battle for equal pay.
It’s a battle that strains her relationship with husband Eddie (Alex Budd) and family to the limit, but Rita and her friends prove that ordinary people can achieve extra-ordinary things when they stand together.
Directed by Hailey Budd, with choreography by Heidi Koutselinis and musical direction by Keith Willis, Made in Dagenham is an outrageous comedy with high energy, rousing numbers.
The cast all live in Hertford and the surrounding areas, with many performing with a number of local companies including Broxbourne Theatre Company, EHOS, Green Room, Harlow Theatre Company & Ware Operatic.
If you saw last year’s award-winning production of Legally Blonde then you won’t be disappointed with Made in Dagenham.
Ticket cost £17.50 for the Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday matinee, and £19.50 for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening performances.
