Our House: Music Theatre 4 Youth

Waterfront Studio, Belfast, Thursday, August 19-21, 7.30pm

Madness produced many great hits in their time — It Must Be Love, House of Fun, Driving in My Car, Baggy Trousers and, of course, Our House.

So finding songs to include in this musical has been easy, and weaving a plot around them easier still.

Our House is the story of Joe Casey who, on the night of his 16th birthday, takes the girl of his dreams out on their first date.

In an effort to impress her, he breaks into a building site. When the police turn up, Joe’s life splits into two: the Good Joe, who stays to help, and Bad Joe, who flees.

Good Joe is sent to a ‘correctional facility’ for two years, and finds life tough when he gets back on the street. Bad Joe’s career as a petty crook is going very well, and he and Sarah decide to marry.

Soon the worlds of good and evil collide, and in the battle that follows, it’s unclear which is going to triumph. See www.waterfront.co.uk for details.
