ahon M c M f f o e G n a From the Chairm Dear Friends,

W

elcome once again to St Georges Hall for our production of ‘The Pirates of Penzance’ which we previously performed at the Library Theatre 21 years ago.

This is the modern version of the Gilbert & Sullivan classic which opened on Broadway in 1981.Three members of our principal cast took leading roles last time and this time they are taking on the ‘more mature parts’ whilst younger family members now take the leads. Kathryn Tonks is following in mum Anne’s footsteps as Mabel whilst Anne plays Ruth. Alan Hirst was Sergeant of Police last time and this year he is the Major General. His son Jonathan plays Samuel. Ian Moorhouse returns to Buttershaw to play the Pirate King having previously played the romantic lead of Frederick. We are pleased to welcome back for the 7th successive year our Production team of Steve Tetlow, Ian Sapiro & Janet Fletcher. Along with many other societies, we are finding it more and more difficult to meet the costs of the production. Hopefully, with your continued generous support, we will be able to generate some profit and thus continue with our long established practise of donating to local charities. On Thursday evening our President will welcome The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Cllr Howard Middleton, the Vicar of St Pauls’ Church, the Reverend Griffiths, together with representatives from NODA and our neighbouring societies

With my best wishes,

Geoff McMahon Geoff McMahon - Chairman

Obituary ROBERT STEAD Robert joined the Society in 1964 for our production of Merry Widow in 1965 and he appeared in every show until 1980 when he became Hall Manager for the next three years. He remained a strong and loyal supporter of the Society until his death. Both his children and grandchild have appeared in our junior productions. All who knew Robert and particularly his many friends within the Society will sadly miss him.

Patron - Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber The National Operatic and Dramatic Association was founded in 1899 to ‘protect and advance the interests of operatic and dramatic art and of the societies engaged of therein’. Our Society is proud to be a member of NODA which has over 2300 societies and nearly 3000 individual members. The Association with its new headquarters in Peterborough, is able to advise societies on many aspects of amateur theatre and provides tailor-made insurance schemes and has its own extensive library. NODA encourages members to attend its Summer Schools, which consist of drama, stagecraft, opera, stage management, musical direction amongst many other topics. With Regional and National Conferences, workshops, seminars, awards and bursaries, together with the publication of quarterly news magazines, NODA provides the only national network for all areas of amateur theatre in the UK. We are part of the North Eastern region of the Association, our Area Councillor is Mr Chris Ingram and our Regional Representative is Mrs Judith Smith whom we look forward to welcoming to our production this week.

Long Service Awards Several of our members have over the years received long service medals. These are presented through NODA by the Society, to recognise their valuable contribution to the amateur stage and to their distinguished service to the Society. This year 30 Years 35 Years 45 Years

our NODA recipients are Linda Hensby Roy Smith Liz McMahon

BSPAODS Youth A new award, The Beatrice McMahon Award, was created by the Society in 2008 to be presented to the youth member, who in the eyes of the rest of the cast had shown commitment, enthusiasm and dedication throughout the rehearsals for Godspell. The first winner was Sam Higgins and the Society congratulates him.

Our next Youth production will be Pajama Game on Thursday, Friday and Saturday 16 – 18 April 2009 at Cleckheaton Town Hall. Enrolment night for all who wish to be in is Monday 2 February at 7.45pm at St Paul’s Primary School. All children must be accompanied by parent or legal guardian. Rehearsal will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.


About the cast... Pirate King - Ian Moorhouse Ian needs no introduction to the amateur musical stage having appeared with many societies throughout the region. Ian first appeared with Buttershaw 21 years ago as Frederick for our first production of ‘Pirates’ and has since taken leading roles in our productions of ‘Music Man’ and ‘Mack and Mabel’. Ian is also in great demand as a cabaret performer and can be found around the circuit on most weekends. Ian is also one of three of our principals who are Bradford City season ticket holders! – thank goodness they haven’t got an important FA Cup match this week!

Frederick - Steve Redfern

Steve has performed in many amateur productions since he was 10 years old. He has studied piano to a high level which has made musical theatre an obvious route to take as a hobby. Parts recently played are Jimmy in ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’ with Buttershaw St Paul’s and Don Lockwood in ‘Singing in the Rain’ in Huddersfield. This role is, however, rather different – not only is this part very operatic it is also ultra “hammy” as opposed to the other roles. However Steve is impressed that he gets to play with his sword every night!

Ruth - Anne Tonks

Anne first appeared with Buttershaw St Paul’s at the age of 15 and since then has performed principal roles, worked backstage, directed junior productions and been a member of the executive committee. Married to Simon, our stage manager, her next love is the theatre. Anne has played the part of Mabel for Keighley Amateurs twice and here for Buttershaw 21 years ago and is now proud to hand down the role of Mabel this year to her very capable and talented daughter Kathryn, whilst Anne takes on the new challenge of “Pirate Maid” Ruth!

Mabel - Kathryn Tonks “One of my earliest memories of musical theatre is tagging along with Mum to watch her rehearse. I always loved mimicking her characters and looked forward to the day when I could be the one in the spotlight. I have taken some feisty roles in recent years such as Nikki (Sweet Charity) and Reno (Anything Goes) but I am really enjoying the challenge of Mabel – who just happens to be one of the favourite parts I’ve seen Mum take. Let’s hope I do the old bird proud!”.

Major General - Alan Hirst

Alan’s first show with the Society was in the 1973 production of ‘Charlie Girl’ and he has appeared in every show except one since then. He has mainly performed supporting roles but has particularly enjoyed playing Sergeant of Police in the previous ‘Pirates’ production, Doolittle in ‘My Fair Lady’ Zeta in ‘Merry Widow’ and Pharaoh in ‘Joseph’. Alan, who has also appeared with Great Horton AOS and Spenborough AODS is responsible for the societies’ publicity and programme compilation and is delighted that his wife, son and niece are all in this current production.

Sergeant of the Police - Phil Jowett

“This is my eighth show with Buttershaw, previous shows included ‘Me and My Girl’, ‘Mack and Mabel’, ‘Brigadoon’, ‘Crazy for you’, ‘Carousel’, ‘Sweet Charity’, ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie’, plus of course, Pirates. Also for Spenborough I have done ‘Guys and Dolls’, ‘Merry Widow’, ‘Allo Allo’, "Dads Army’ and I am hoping to do ‘Brassed Off’ with them in May. When I am asked about doing all these shows,. What’s it like? I reply with my favourite word.... MARVELLOUS!”.

Samuel - Jonny Hirst

After performing as a youngster in the junior pantomime for many years, Jonny’s first senior production was Kiss Me Kate. Following university, Jonny has appeared in a number of productions for BSP, as well as taking roles in shows in Halifax and Huddersfield. Jonny is grateful to be playing a role in English for a change, although the West Country accent sounds only marginally less ridiculous than last year’s Chinese!

ance z n e P f o s e t a ir P o Backround t No costumes, policemen dressed as sailors, only half the music available and the cast still reading their words from crib sheets. It all sounds like an amateur producer’s worst nightmare, but this was the first professional production of ‘Pirates of Penzance’. It was a 2p.m. matinee in Paignton, Devon on 30th December 1879. Richard D’Oyly Carte’s Company were touring Devon with a production of H.M.S. Pinafore, Pirates of Penzance was due to open in New York but international copyright law was in a state of chaotic uncertainty and so, to protect their rights on both sides of the Atlantic, Gilbert and Sullivan hurriedly arranged the English premiere. Much of the music was still in America and there was no time to make new costumes or even to learn the songs, so the cast just did the best that they could. It must have been a strange sight, but the new show was nonetheless well received. Things were not a great deal better in America. Sullivan was unwell at the time and was under pressure to finish the music. He then discovered that he had left his work on Act II in England. There was no time to send for it so he had to remember it as best he could, rewrite it and score it for orchestra in just two weeks! He was conducting H.M.S. Pinafore every evening, conducting rehearsals for Pirates during the day and composing music until three or four in the morning, a punishing schedule for a sick man. Then two or three days before the opening the band went on strike, claiming that the music was not ordinary operetta but was more like grand opera, for which they wanted more money. Sullivan called their bluff, threatening to play the music himself on the piano until the Covent Garden Orchestra could arrive. The band gave way and rehearsals resumed. He was still composing on Christmas Day, he finished the main score at 7a.m. on 28th December and the overture on the morning of the 31st. The production opened that evening to great acclaim and has been a success with audiences ever since, both in its original form and as the new Broadway version. Pirates sticks firmly to Gilbert and Sullivan’s agreed formula, which was ‘… to treat a thoroughly farcical subject in a thoroughly serious manner.’ In this case the farcical subject is a band of blue blooded pirates and their reluctant apprentice Frederick, who is only with them because his foolish nursemaid, Ruth, misheard her employer’s instructions. Their piratical activities are curtailed by their refusal to attack anyone who is an orphan and since word has got around they seem to come across ships manned entirely by orphans. On a lonely beach they encounter General Stanley’s beautiful daughters and Frederick falls in love with Mabel. They attempt to carry off the young ladies but are challenged by the less than valiant local police force. Frederick is torn between his love for Mabel and his loyalty to his fellow pirates, but at length the situation is resolved to everyone’s satisfaction and all ends happily. We are crossing our fingers that our production runs more smoothly than that first night in Paignton but we are sure that you will enjoy it just as much as those original audiences. DEB

nce Glossary (in order of occure

)

Act One ‘let the pirate bumper pass’ (Pirates) - a cup or glass filled to the brim as for a toast ‘Frederick’s out of his indentures’ (Pirates) – apprenticeship ‘scuttling a Cunarder’ (Pirate King)- sinking a passenger ship of the Cunard line ‘cutting out a P & O’ (Pirate King)- separating a passenger ship from surrounding ships in order to capture it ‘ship a handspike’ (Pirate King)- to position the lever used in raising the anchor ‘skipping rivulet and fountain’ (Girls)- a small stream ‘you shall quickly be parsonified’(Pirates)- married (This does not appear in OED) Major General’s song The MG tries to impress everyone with his superior military knowledge by reeling off a bewildering series of names, places and things. He starts off with the battles of Marathon (Greece 490BC) and Waterloo (1815); then gives us a list of mathematical terms: quadratical, binomial theorem, hypotenuse, integral and differential calculus. Beings animalculus are microscopic animals. Next he mentions Sir Caradoc, a knight living at the time of King Arthur, and Heliogabalus, a Roman emperor noted for his cruel deeds. Acrostics are word puzzles, and elegiacs are a kind of sorrowful poem. Conics and parabolus are geometric terms; Raphaels, Gerard Dows and Zoffanies refer to paintings by the Italian, Dutch and German artists. The Greek playwright Aristophanes did write the Frogs (which has a frog chorus although they do not croak!) and ‘that infernal nonsense Pinafore’ refers to Gilbert and Sullivan’s previous operetta HMS Pinafore, first performed in 1878. Babylonic cuneform is a very ancient kind of writing and every detail of Caracticus’ uniform refers to a Welsh king in the first century who resisted the Roman invasions and went into battle naked covered in blue woad. Next the MG moves to things military: a mamelon is a small mound used in fortifications; ravelin means part of the outside of a fort; a Mauser is a German rifle and commissariat is a military department for the supply of food. When the Major says ‘sat a gee’ he’s talking about riding a horse!

Act Two ‘an unstained escutcheon’ (Major General) – a shield displaying heraldic insignia or family crest. ‘the stucco in your baronial hall is scarcely dry’ (Frederick) – decorative plasterwork ‘for when threatened with emeutes’ (Sergeant)- French term for riots or brawls ‘when the coster’s finished jumping on his mother’ (Sergeant)- street vendors, usually rough characters. centre-bit (Samuel) – a hand drill. life preserver (Samuel) – a stick or bludgeon usually coated with lead intended for self defence silent matches (Samuel)- matches lighted by dipping in chemical solution rather than striking ‘Is he to die, unshriven, unannealed’ (Mabel) – Not being given one’s last rites by a priest ‘for well we trow your mortal career (Pirates) – to believe, think or suppose ‘hymenially coupled, conjugally matrimonified’ (Frederick) – married!
