2016 - West End to Broadway
Co-produced by mother and daughter team, Lisa and Jordan Thomas, this year's show was all about musical theatre. Songs included classics from Oklahoma!, We Will Rock You, The Sound of Music, Les Misérables and more modern musicals such as Hairspray and Mamma Mia! In a first for Castle Bromwich Singers, we made use of scenery and props to replicate some of the settings the songs would be sung in during the musicals and we made use of some new headset radio microphones recently bought thanks to a grant from the Birmingham Airport Community Trust Fund. A matinee performance was again put on two weeks later for those supporters who could not venture out in the evening.
This years charity is Erdington based John Taylor Hospice.
2015 - The Circle of Life
This year's charity was heart research UK and the theme for the show was the circle of life. Produced by Helen Kemp, this year's show songs were all based on the cycle of life from birth to death and many events in between. In a first for castle Bromwich Singers, we also put on a matinee show at Castle Bromwich Baptist Church two weeks later.
We also sang at St.Wilfrid's RC Church, Castle Bromwich to help them raise funds for their church funds. We presented Heart
Research UK with a cheque for £2,600.00.
Castle Bromwich Singers also sang in a second show in 2015
at St Wilfrid's Catholic Church, along with St. Wilfrid's
School and Church choirs, helping to raise several hundred pounds for church funds
