THANK YOU for an extremely enjoyable evening.
You all should be VERY proud of yourselves
DVD can be ordered through John Simcox
I've seen most of Mon and Tues' preformances and you were FAB.
I was one of the people struck by the bug last night but I hear ALL the understudies on stage did a FANTASTIC job - well done you - true professionals. Fingers crossed everyone else remains well and we have you all back tonight. Keep smiling - it's a brilliant show - keep up the good work folks.
Another great night. Well done everyone, Well done to the last minute stand ins.
How do I order a DVD of the show?
Hiya, glad to hear opening night went so well, I have had some enquiries through our website about tickets so i've pointed them to you or the crescent theatre. Ur in for an amazing sell out week I think. Bit worried about all the breaking a leg... don't really want it to come true but yeah, same from me.
what time do we need to go to big wok
Just a quick note to say how fantastic you all were on the opening night, all of effort you put in rehearsals more than paid off. The singing was superb and the dancing was spot on. Keep up the enthusiasm and keep on smiling (you all deserve it, this is a show that the whole gang should be proud of)
Well done you guys on your opening night! Absolutely fantastico!!! Enjoy the rest of your week - remember to SMILE :-)
Break a leg!!!!
What an opening night - well done to you all - you have done Colin and I proud - were in for a fantastic week.......
The rehearsals are all over, now it’s the real thing.
You will be FANTASTIC, as always.
I am looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday.
Break A Leg
All the very best for the Show - Break a leg Big John
Yey it's nearly here.

Just to let you know the link from the Girlguiding Birmingham Website to your website has been active for a couple of weeks to help push those last few tickets. Hope the dress rehearsal goes well and i'll be there to see it on the Thursday night.
Hi Handsworth Gang,
You open in a little over a week, a HUGE break a leg from the whole East Birmingham Gang. We can't wait to come and see what you've done this year!!
I've just emailed the booking chap to order our tickets. There should be a quite a crowd there from East Birmingham, but we'll try and behave!!! :-D
Catch you all soon, you'll be great!!!
Break a leg,
(Assistant Producer - East Birmingham Gang Show)
And from the whole East Birmingham Gang!
To the cast: you have worked hard to get where you are - and I can honestly say I feel very proud of all of you. There have been ups and downs and mostly you have all pulled together and responded positively - and the result is a very professional looking performance. We are on the final run now so bear with us keep smiling and we will not only have a great show but we'll bring the house down.
All coming together now, Looking good. Just believe in yourselves. The production team have put a lot of work in now it's all down to you. Look up, Sing up, Smile and have confidence and you will have standing ovations. Keep it going.
what do i need for the show
Not long now everyone :)
Jodie make sure you have logged in and become a member for this site and then you will be able to access the costume s page

I am hoping you will all give that extra push now to sell the last tickets. We must all do our best to make sure there are no empty seats in the theatre, and at todays date there are plenty?

Update on the polo shirts etc: Company apologise for delay but this time of year.

Again Sorry for delay. By the way what I see really does look good, but just an old message "SMILE"
did back to the futeur today
Everything seems to be coming along really well :D
Can't wait until every rehersal now, and this show is going to be amazing!
I think we all need to learn how to be a little quiter, myself included! xD
is it too late to realise I'm going to be spending my birthday on stage doing some very provocative bollywood dancing? wonderful...
well it's coming along :)
Let's see if the Jai ho dance can be done in a sari :P
See you all Sunday
Thanks Jai Ho cast today. I've just finished putting the moves alongside words. I will test it on Katie to see if it makes sense then hopefully I will be able to give you all a copy on Wednesday to help with practising. (and one for me so that I remember what i've done!!)
Words from the wardrobe..............Thank you all for your co-operation so far - it makes our job so much easier. It would be appreciated if all ladies could pay for their leotards as soon as possible as the invoice from the suppliers has to be paid next week. As soon as everyone has paid, we shall have a dress rehearsal for the Musicals number. Thank you, Gill Anderson
Just to put on the WEB site - Fellowship Chinese night out 29th Novemeber.After reahersals. Let's have a chin wag and let you hair down. All welcome.
Let Myself or Julia know so we can book the numbers. Mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
Just wanted to add, each time I pop my head in to rehearsals the more I'm impressed. The voices are superb, The moves fantasic, but then I'd expect nothing else. It's great still having a little involvement and knowing HGS will again be brilliant. Roger Morcom's said it, But I would say best by far in the whole of the country. Well done, carry on
Your chairman suggested I had a look at your site.
WOW !!! Brilliant, you must be the envy of the rest of West Midlands Gang Shows.
Best wishes to you all
Roger Morcom. Birmingham County Chairman
Despite feeling rubbish with the dreaded cold thats going around, I really enjoyed rehearsals yesterday. Its great to see it all coming together. Can't wait til I am back in fine singing form (?) and I can properly join in again. Thanks production team for all your hard work.
Great rehearsal today - Colin has said that this show could really stretch the boundaries of Gang Show - I agree you are all working so hard - over the rainbow girls are getting into positions never before experienced - voices are reaching highs (especially Colins in 'one day more') they have never before reached - you'll have the audience holding its breath - well done you make us proud to be involved with you
Out of interest looking at the name of the finale, why aren't we doing "I've had the time of my life" from Dirty Dancing?
any chance the words for one day more be put up on here? ie all of them, so we at least know when we're singing
I am not sure but the hotline for information about the marathon and transport issues is 0121 464 6002. Hope this helps :)
hello. does any one know how to get to rehersals on sunday 11th when most of the roads are shut. i'm having trouble finding out and also may be on public transport that day - i'm coming from the south side of the city Ruth (ben's mum)
looking forward to Wednesday - we are really moving well folks - super
Hi all just a note to say thank you to you all for your hard work and enthusiasm. Not only those on stage but all those working hard behind the scenes. Keep up the good work it makes me proud to be the chairman of what promises to be a fantastic show.
Thankyou to everyone for rehearsals today - especially the second part - we don't like to moan, we also want to have fun - all of us. Please remember if someone is rehearsing we really do need quite from the sides of stage. So lets all have a good time, work together to pull off a fantastic show with you - a fantastic cast - thanks for your support in this - Karen and Colin
A reminder to the scouts and guides who are joining the cub number - you need to come at 2.45 on Sunday and you will be finished by 5pm. All casts - remember - 25th HQ this Sunday.
Becky you must have some sort of a magic touch....
Somehow I just completed the matching game in 25 moves... O.o I don't understand...
Words from the Wardrobe
Thank you all for your co-operation so far - it is much appreciated.
Les Mis - you do not now have to costume yourselves - we shall now be doing that for you.
Ladies only - for those of you who have been told you will be expected to buy a leotard, it will most likely be black (not white) and will cost you under £10.
Hi Folks, thanks for your work on Wednesday- we managed to cover a lot. PLEASE practice what we've done so far, and try and keep the noise down!
Very pleased with the way rehearsals went on Sunday - well done to everyone involved - remember to check your schedules so you arrive at the right time this Sunday, if you're early you will have to wait in the corridor!! Looking forward to this evening - see you all there - Karen
Saw John Simcox last night and he advised us to have a look. Brilliant, well done! You are certainly moving with the times - what a fantastic advertisement
for what promises to be a brilliant show. You deserve all the support you can get.
Just found my way in a spare moment onto the web site. What a fantastic site. I have seen many Gang Shows sites but this takes some beating. Oh I wish! I'm so jealous. Great Well done to you all. It's a great feeling to know The HGS will not only go on but will move with the times.
PLEASE NOT THAT SOME OF THE LETTERS SENT OUT SHOW THAT WE FINISH ON THE FRIDAY - WE DO NOT - WE HAVE A MATINEE AND EVENING PERFORMANCE ON THE SATURDAY AS WELL - SORRY FOR ANY CONFUSION THIS MAY HAVE CAUSED

Hi folks, what a fantastic induction day. It was great to see some 'old' faces again, but excellent to see some new ones. We have some really talented, confident and enthusiastic people for the cast this year, and I don't think it could have gone any better for me today. I am really looking forward to working with you in September , and I think that this show could really raise the bar. 'Be prepared' to work hard!
