York based theatre company, Badapple Theatre, are returning to Chelwood Village Hall with their performance of “Eddie and the Gold Tops” this Thursday (16th March)
Badapple Theatre are back by popular demand after their production of World War One drama “The Thankful Village" received rave reviews from audiences in Chelwood last year. Now the Badapple team are back with ‘Eddie and the Gold Tops’, a hilarious new comedy set against the backdrop and dynamic music of the ‘Swinging 60s’.
Tickets for the Chelwood production are selling fast, as are seats for their other tour dates.
"We are already sold out later in the tour at Catwick Village Hall on 25th March and only have 20 seats available for our big Badapple Fundraiser on 26th March in Green Hammertoe," said Badadpple Theatre.
Eddie and the Gold Tops is a fantastic family comedy with music, written and directed by Kate Bramley. It’s the 1960’s and every village in England has a band determined to hit the big time. This tale follows our Eddie, a hard-working milkman in Bottledale, where local folk are inspired by the cream of the pop charts and tired of the milk-float of ordinary life, ever dreaming of stardom and success.
Eddie inherited the family milk round from his father, and has fulfilled his deathbed promise to never miss a delivery for the good people of the village. But suddenly he’s becoming a pop superstar, quite by accident! His songs are heading up the charts and if he can get there by tonight he’ll be on Top ofThe Pops…..
So, get ready, Eddie, go! You’re heading for the high life, with the fabulous Gold Tops behind you every step of the way! But when things take a churn for the worse, will you get back for the morning milk?
Audiences are sured to be gripped by the story whilst the original songs and music by SONY Radio Academy Award Winner Jez Lowe who has just been announced as one of the performing artists at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards at the Royal Albert Hall are bound to have you swinging the night away.
Eddie and the Gold Tops will be at Chelwood Village Hall on Thursday 16th March 2017 at 7:30pm. Tickets cost £9.50 or £5.00 for under 16s and are available from Stephen Meale on 01761 490002.
