“Fred & Ginger” by Gritty Theatre

The annual school musical…
Taffeta, testosterone, and no talent. It’s not really about breeding the stars of tomorrow – it’s more about gettin’ up there and ‘havin’ a goo’!

“Ooh, you make me furious Carl. Right … I’m calm. Let’s take it again from the top!”

“Why amwe dancin’ when nobody else is?”

“Cuz then ifMr F. sees how committed we am we’ll get a big role next year!”

“I day want a big role.”

“Why are you here then?”

“Detention. Tsk.”


Rehearsals after school. Izzy is in the chorus and wants to prove herself. She is determined to work her way up through the ranks and eventually secure a lead role, as one day she wants to ‘goo drama college’. Carl is only here because he got caught (allegedly) sellin’ sherbet Dib Dabs cut with washing powder.

Set in a Black Country secondary modern (or, if you will, an ‘Academy’), ‘Fred and Ginger’ is a bostin’ comedy drama that is an homage to those halcyon days at school. It is a reminder that most of us manage to eventually grow up, find our own way, and leave education. But not necessarily in that order…


Brum-based Gritty Theatre are convinced that drama should not only change lives, but also be a part of everyday life for everyone. Their mission is to discover and nurture new audiences by performing a repertoire that consists of modern works that reflect the concerns and issues of the communities that we live and work in. They also tour – not only to share their work with others, but also to fly the flag for the West Midlands!


Suitable for 12+ (‘cos there am a few naughty words in it’!)


Tickets £10. To book click here.
