Monster Mash	 - 	Devised by John Godbold4th-6th January

Studio Theatre, mac

"A deliciously tongue in trash schlock cheek offering from Brum's Stage2 takes its inspiration from the 60's novelty hit and throws in huge dollops of 'Frankenstein', 'Dracula' and 'The Phantom of the Opera' for dressing. The Caretaker of The Celestial Library has lost it, causing all manner of gothic novels to develop a life of their own. When help comes to the rescue what they find is horror run wild..."

Studio Theatre, mac

"Factory girls crash a student party as a Willy Russell play takes to the Birmingham Stage. Youth Theatre group Stage2 makes these two worlds collide with hilarious results at Edgbaston's mac." Birmingham News. We decided to adapt Russell's screenplay for a cast of over 150. We took over the theatre by not only 'building' a two storey, four roomed house, but also erecting a tent, installing a back garden and creating a street - all in the mac Studio!

 

Little Shop of Horrors - Howard Ashman and Alan Menken

Shows - 1996

Little Shop of Horrors	 - 	Howard Ashman and Alan Menken17th-20th July

Studio Theatre, mac

"Hooray for the shop of horrors! This is a bubbling, bright-eyed production involving a team of nearly 200 youngsters, most of them put on stage! It delivers a succession of pulsating numbers with disciplined aplomb, the fizz flourishing as irresistibly as ever. Craig Painting excels as the memorably mad dentist and Tom Darvill (Seymour) and Catherine Skinner (Audrey) are an extremely pleasing central pairing; the message of Liz Light's production came through loud and clear; this is a fine show. The man-eating plant is a pleasure in its own right." Evening Mail

Shows - 1996

Our Day Out	 - 	Willy Russell17th-21st December

Hexagon Theatre, mac

"Stage2, mac's highly regarded youth theatre, present the original version of Russell's comedy. First seen 20 years ago on television in the BBC's Play for Today series, it is the story of a school trip to Wales with a cast of crazy schoolkids, panic-stricken teachers and frantic zoo-keepers. The tearaway terrors prove too much for everybody as one thing after another keeps going inexplicably wrong. A play ideally suited to this company - they will transform the stage into a coach, a zoo, a castle and a beach!" What's On
