Made in Dagenham - The King's Hall Theatre, Herne Bay

Wednesday, 6th July until Saturday, 9th July 2022


Made in Dagenham

 We are delighted to announce that we will be bringing the award-nominated musical Made in Dagenham to The King's Hall Theatre, Herne Bay in 2022.  

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, this is live theatre that you will not want to miss.

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!!!

Allo Allo Poster Low Res 1

Theatrecraft is absolutely delighted to announce that our amazing comedy 'Allo 'Allo is to be rescheduled for 2022 at The Playhouse Whitstable. Keep your eyes peeled here for further news of confirmed dates and when tickets will be on sale.

This stage version of 'Allo 'Allo follows the adventures of Rene, a hapless cafe owner in Nazi occupied France, and his wife Edith, who entertains their patrons with her special brand of "cabaret".

Rene must keep many secrets; he has concealed a priceless portrait in a knockwurst sausage on behalf of the Nazis (but plans to keep it for himself), he is reluctantly hiding two British Airmen for the French Resistance and there will be big trouble if his wife discovers his amorous affairs with his young waitresses.

Matters come to a head with the news that the Fuhrer is to visit the town and the cafe become filled with tricksters intending to impersonate or assassinate Hitler.  Rene will need all the wit he can muster to save his cafe and his life!

Come and join us for this wonderful version of this very British comedy.
