6100: Sweeney Todd - Senior School Musical (12/01/2017)
The Bancroft’s Players are delighted to invite you to attend our production of ‘Sweeney Todd- Schools’ Edition’ on Thursday March 23rd, Friday March 24th and Saturday March 25th. With a 46 member cast, made up from the U4th to the U6th, a range of cameos from our 3rd formers, a band made up of many of our young musicians and a whole troupe of student technicians and makeup artists, ‘Sweeney Todd’ promises to be a night not to be missed. Recently brought to life in a film starring Johnny Depp, Sondheim’s ‘Sweeney Todd’ is a tragicomedy involving unwitting cannibalism and a lot of stage blood! Benjamin Barker was a young father, with a beautiful wife who caught the attention of the powerful Judge Turpin. Fifteen years after he was sent to Australia for life for a crime he did not commit, Barker returns to London to exact revenge on those who wronged him. On his way, he meets a grotesque former acquaintance who always had a soft spot for him and a kind sailor who gets caught up in his murderous antics. The events build up to a devastating climax. The performances will be held in the Great Hall, starting at 7pm. Tickets are £7 for adults and are available from school reception now. Please contact kay.kennedy@bancrofts.org at the School Office reception to arrange your ticket purchase stating that you are an Old Bancroftian. We look forward to seeing you there!

6099: FIVE’S COMPANY – THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS 1964-68 (03/01/2017)
FIVE’S COMPANY – THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS 1964-68 There are probably not so many readers who remember the post-match dance at the OB’s Rugby Club in Loughton on 13th February 1965. But Eddie Broadbridge (1955-63) does. That was the evening his new band, Five’s Company, replaced Eddie and the Shifters, his old band of legendary OB fame, and were paid handsomely for their services: £17+10s. for an evening’s work, divided by five. In a previous article Eddie described how rock came to Bancroft’s – not so long after skiffle. Now he’s pleased to announce the release of all the recordings he made with Fives’ Company accompanied by a launch party at the Crown and Anchor, 374 Chiswick High Rd. on Friday 27th January between 2 and 5 pm. All are welcome! Among Eddie’s experiences with Five’s Company was a rejection slip from Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein, who “unfortunately can do nothing for you”. Eddie did not take this lying down.
