Show doesn’t have dancers on tap

HAVE you heard of a Suzie Q, a Cramp Roll or a Buffalo? Neither have we! But apparently these are tap steps that could well be appearing in Berwick Operatic Society’s proposed 2012 musical production 42nd Street.

However, there is a problem. The society has tried to stage this show in the past and, although they had very competent tap-dancers in their ranks, there were just not enough of them.

So this time round they have decided to cast their net far and wide throughout the Borders and north Northumberland to try to find a troupe of tap-dancers who can carry it off with the style and pizzazz that such a show demands.

So if you have been tapping round the kitchen floor, just longing to show off your talents to a wider audience, then head along to St Aidan’s Hall in Church Street, Berwick, at 7.30pm on Tuesday, August 9, when you can show what you can do.

And it’s not just girls the society is looking for – ideally there should be some male hoofers too.

42nd Street is just brimming with fabulous dance numbers including the title song, 42nd Street, We’re in the Money, Go Into Your Dance and many more.

The tappers the society are looking for should be aged 16 or over and be prepared to commit to quite an intensive rehearsal period.

The show is to be staged at The Maltings on March 21 to 24, 2012.
