Our House promises pure musical Madness
THE unforgettable songs of seventies and eighties group Madness are set to come to the stage when Buckie Community Theatre Group hold their latest show.
The town's Fishermen's Hall is set to host Our House –The Madness Musical over Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29, one of the most ambitious performances the group have ever staged.
While the musical features a huge selection of Madness's discography, it is not in fact about the iconic Ska band. Instead, the stony focuses on young Joe Casey, played by the group's artistic director Kevin Oakes, and follows him on a one-night odyssey which, one way or another, will change his life.
He faced with making the right choices as the night wears on as the audience are treated to alternate version of what will happen she he choose one path or another.
Playing Joe's girlfriend Sarah is Vicki Donn while Glen Campbell and Pauline McIntosh take on the roles of his mum and dad respectively.
Mr Oakes said the show had presented many challenges for the talent theatre group team.
"It's one of the hardest shows I've ever had to put together in my career," he said.
"There's a wide range of songs to be performed and you're never off the stage – some actors are playing four or five roles.
"It's a real ensemble piece.
"I'm so proud of the hard work everyone has put in. We've been rehearsing Our House since February, more or less as soon as we finished the panto."
