Press Release

Are You a Man? Can You Sing? Then You’re Hired!

MOS still needs men for the chorus & un-cast principal parts. If you’d like to join us then we’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch on our contact page or email info@mos-uk.org. Or, simply come along to our weekly Thursday rehearsal!

You’re bound to know both Bragg and Goodall from their successful careers in broadcasting, but did you also know about their respective writing and composing talents? Well if not then you’re in for a treat, as the show weaves together a moving and compelling story with both upbeat and poignant songs as part of the melodious score.

Set in Cumbria, it tells the tale of one family’s journey from land labourers to colliers and back to the land, set against the background of working class life – whippet racing, hiring fairs, hunting, drinking, union meetings and the like. Set in the late 1800s to 1920s, it brings alive in vivid colour the period of British history that swept us into the 20th century and the war of wars. It is fitting that MOS bring it to a stage near you in November 2016, as it will be 100 years to the day since the Battle of the Somme – the largest battle of World War I on the Western Front.

The musical features some fantastic leading and smaller roles for men, and we’re looking for new faces to come and join our production. If you fancy treading the boards, giving your vocal chords a workout and taking part in a superb show to mark an historic occasion then come along and step into the hiring ring! You can find all the details on www.mos-uk.org but the best and quickest way to find out about us and the show is to come along to a rehearsal at Taplow Village Hall on a Thursday evening at 7.45 pm.

If you love this musical, or just love singing and acting then we need you! Following recent auditions we are still looking for at least two leading men to play the parts of John and Jackson. These are the principal baritone and tenor parts with a playing age of between 25-45. If this sounds like you then please get in touch!
