DVD currently in production

Shooters Media collaborated with Basics Junior Theatre School from Burnley to film their latest production 'Oliver!' at the Mechanics.

The 2 hour DVD, which will be available next month will feature the whole show including all the famous songs such as "Food, Glorious Food", "Consider Yourself" and "Pick a Pocket or Two".

The performance was filmed with a couple of Sony V1e's over two nights and then edited together to accommodate both Oliver Twists, played by Jack Roche and Toby Cooke.

Other star performances come from Amelia Horth and Matthew Horne who play the roles of Nancy and Fagin respectively. Be sure to look out for them in the future!

The excellent ensemble cast, made up of young people from as young as 7 are the latest class Dennis Mertaugh's team have expertly trained up since Basics' formation 25 years ago. It's been a labour of love for Dennis and his wife Sally, passionately funding the school by themselves with the help of dedicated volunteers and fundraising projects.

Previous productions include 'The Boyfriend', 'Hello Dolly', 'Les Misérables' and Ben Elton's 'We Will Rock You'.

This years Oliver! DVD is sponsored by Create Studios Ltd. For more information about Basics Junior Theatre School, like their page on Facebook for the latest information on how to get involved and how to take advantage of opportunities to watch future performances.
