ABOUT MADE IN DAGENHAM
Inspired by a true story and based on the hit movie, Made in Dagenham is the uplifting new West End musical comedy about friendship, love and the importance of fighting for what is right.
Essex 1968. Like millions of other working women, each morning Rita O’Grady is just trying to get her husband out of bed, get the kids off to school and get to work at the factory on time. But life is about to change forever when it’s announced that the girls in the stitching room of Ford’s Dagenham car plant will have their pay grade dropped to ‘unskilled’. Quickly drawing on a strength she never knew she had, Rita leads her friends in a battle against the might of Ford and the corruption of the Union supposed to protect them. As the girls’ inspiring journey gets bigger than anyone could have imagined, the pressure is too much for some, but can Rita keep up the fight and the happy home she’s worked so hard for?
Funny, touching and timeless, Made in Dagenham shows how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they stand together.
Ford Motor Company Limited went on to effect changes in its employment practises and is now used as an example of a good practice employer.
The new revised date for the Razzle Dazzle Dinner Dance is now Saturday 14th October 2023.
7pm at The Victoria Hall, Crewkerne.
This year’s theme is Musical theatre, so come dressed as someone from a musical.
There will be a prize for best dressed so whether you want to suit up from 42nd street, dress down from Newsies, get your garters out from Rocky Horror or go full animal from Cats, we can't wait to see what you come up with.
They'll be entertainment from the very talented Daisy treating us to her performance of various musical theatre songs, followed by dinner, then a disco and karaoke for you to pull out your own stage worthy moves and vocals.
