For its 2016 production, Berrigan Amateur Dramatic Society was proud to present The Masked Canary – an old fashioned melodrama set in the Old West town of Tombstone, Arizona.
BADS 2016 production of The Masked Canary was a smash hit! Audiences loved booing our villain and cheering our heroine and laughing at the antics and carryon in our Old West Melodrama.
Free and Easy was set in 1960’s Manchester where Eric and Iris Dobbins (played by Steven Malcolm and Marianne Whelan) have been running a friendly neighbourhood pub called The Last Drop for many years. It’s a place where everybody knows everybody – a real family style pub; a home away from home – somewhere to feel safe, warm and comfortable. Sound familiar…?
Written by prolific playwright Judith Prior, Haunted Halloween was a return to a musical production featuring well-known songs such as Teddy Bear, Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend and Monster Mash.
This madcap comedy addressed an issue close to every woman's heart –how to train your husband! Sound impossible? Not when you have a legendary Husband Trainer living right next door.
An adaption of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust set in a 1976 disco, the clothes were loud, the hair was big and the music was funky!
The Great Australian Rock Musical – as Aussie as Football, Meat Pies, Kangaroos and Holden Cars!
Act Your Age was set in “Celebrity Sanctuary”, a clinic that offers rest, relaxation and therapy for celebrities but has fallen on hard times with only two staff left.
