If you want to see what you think of us in the flesh, feel free to come along to a rehearsal or two. We meet every Sunday at 1.30pm at Erdington Methodist Church. Reheasals are followed by a trip to the local pub; a great way to get to know everyone and have a good laugh!
Membership is £40 per year plus some small extra costs you may need to pay for musical scores or costumes - though we aim to keep these low with a bit of creativity!

A New Musical
by Ethan Cruxton
Open Rehearsal / Read & Sing Through
Sunday 5th January, 13:30-16:30 – Erdington Methodist Church, Station Rd.
Come along to see what Badger! is all about. The composer and writer, Ethan Cruxton, will be leading from the piano. Everyone can read a part, or a portion, and music will be available digitally to sing or follow along with the songs. By the end of the rehearsal everyone will have an idea of the roles available, the style of music, and what the show is about ahead of auditions!
Saturday 11th January, 10:00-13:00 – Erdington Methodist Church, Station Rd.
Our auditions are open to anyone at all, member or not. The process is quite straightforward. You will be required to do two things:
Sing a song you have prepared. This can be anything, though it is recommended to be in the Musical Theatre / Light Operetta tradition. The piece should aim to show your voice off in its best light. Although an A Capella performance is acceptable, it is preferred that you bring sheet music so a pianist may accompany you. It is asked that performers perform their pieces too, rather than ‘park and bark’, as this will be taken into account in the casting process.
Perform a short scene from the show. The scenes are below. Choose one that you enjoy performing the most. A reader for the other character will be provided. It is not necessary to learn the scene from heart but being familiar & able to perform more will be an advantage!
And that is it! During the afternoon you will be emailed with the casting decisions. If you cannot make the date, please let us know and alternative provisions can be arranged.
