Following on from our amazing productions of Jesus Christ Superstar and Tommy, which were both met with packed houses and standing ovations, and even a NODA Award of Excellence, Theatrecraft will be bringing the award-nominated musical Made In Dagenham to The King's Hall Theatre, Herne Bay.

We are looking for an energetic, enthusiastic and strong cast of 20 plus performers, ages ranging from 16 to 60, both male and female. We also require two younger roles, aged 8-13, one boy and one girl.

Set in the 60s, Made In Dagenham has a huge heart – it is funny, sad, uplifting and has some belting musical numbers to boot.

It is inspired by the true story of 187 upholstery machinists at Ford's Dagenham plant who came out on strike in the late 60s for equal pay. In doing so they took on the full might of Ford USA, the British Government, the TUC, public opinion and initially their own colleagues. And WON!!!
