All About BADCo and How to Join

Barnwood Amateur Dramatics Company (BADCo) is a section of the EDF Energy (Barnwood) Sports & Social club and membership of BADCo is open to all members of the S&SC.  We are based at the EDF Energy offices at Barnwood in Gloucester.

If you are interested in joining BADCo and do not work at EDF Energy then please visit the S&SC website for information on associate or family membership and contact us to discuss this further. Contact Anna in the S&SC Office on 01452 652058 or email anna.eaton@edf-energy.com.

Junior members are welcome to join BADCo with a participating adult!

BADCo pantomimes are staged in February every year, with rehearsals starting from September onwards.  If you are interested in joining the cast, you should come to one of the initial meetings or script readings or contact us in early September expressing an interest.  New crew members can join any time between September and February, along with anyone interested in helping with music, costumes etc.  Front of House helpers are also always needed for the show nights – full S&SC membership is not always required to help in this way.  Interest from potential new members is also welcomed throughout the year – there are sometimes events and activities held over the summer, in between shows.

If the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd is what tickles your fancy, then BADCo is for you!  We are always looking for new members to assist on and off stage for our dramatic productions. Whether you are a budding Russell Crowe, Steven Spielberg, or just want to sell programmes and show people to their seats, let us know and you too can be one of the select few to say “I’ve been part of the pantomime at Barnwood”

BADCo has been running for over 20 years and has donated all our profit from our productions to charity. To date we have raised well over £9000 for charities across the years

BADCo – We won’t turn a drama into a crisis!
