The Show

Badger! is a brand new show written and composed by Erdington-based musician Ethan Cruxton. His previous staged musical works, The New Savoyards and The Coalition Kings have been performed by BROC, University of Birmingham Gilbert & Sullivan Society and Walsall Gilbert & Sullivan and have been widely praised and well received by audiences and performers alike. If you want to find out more about this new show and how you can get involved, join us for our open rehearsal at Erdington Methodist Church on Sunday January 5th, with the composer 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!
