Theatre Of War

janehilliard@talktalk.net
A one act play
1914, the outbreak of ‘The Great War’
The inhabitants of a sleepy English village struggle to come to terms with the changes in their lives now that the able bodied men have left to defend their country. Those that are left behind continue with steely determination to keep the village as it was for their loved ones return.
Sadly, the futility of war touches them all.
It's an easy play to produce, one set,20/25 minutes long approx.
Although I wrote it specifically for West Moors the name of the village could be changed to fit any country setting.

I was just wondering if there was any openings for any after school drama work starting in September?
I have graduated from drama and theatre studies in Magee and do drama work in the Down syndrome association. I am looking to further my field now.

If you could get back to me regarding any drama work that would be super.

Many thanks,
Alanna Sharratt


Peter's response:

Hello Alanna,
Drama Groups is simply an online portal for amateur groups to promote themselves, their shows, events etc. as such I'm afraid I am not in a position to offer you any work. I can only suggest that you make contact with local groups in your area ( you will find groups listed in the Groups section of the website), I'm sure that any local amdram group would be happy to have you helping them out although for the most part that would be unpaid work. Perhaps you should consider getting in touch with local drama schools who may have a position available for you.
I shall place your email and my response in the Advice section of the www.dramagroups.com website and perhaps a local school or group will make contact with you directly.
Do let me know how you get on.

Best Wishes,

Peter

The Brighton Academy

As you know
Three years ago, myself and three other similar Brighton based performers opened a performing arts college in Hove with one sole purpose: to give young singers, dancers and actors of any financial background, professional training rivalling anywhere else in the country.
We have made our training affordable for all. This means the only criteria that we look for in our yearly auditions are talent and potential, thus ensuring that no talented young performer gets left behind based on their parent’s financial state.
This philosophy has been backed by some of the country’s leading professionals including Tony and Olivier Award winning choreographers and directors Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear and star of stage and screen; David Essex. Not to mention the performers who travel to Hove every day from London to teach our students.
It is this backing that has allowed us to help, so many local up and coming performers, that otherwise would have had no chance of affording college whilst giving them the chance to train with the west-ends finest and have a real shot at an incredible career on the stage.

I am writing to you as I believe we may have an interesting story (or three) for your Community News. On the 27thMarch, our premier graduating year performed in their industry showcase, “Making Waves” at the Leicester Square Theatre, in London's West End and from this gained representation from some of leading theatrical agents in the business!

Secondly, based solely on the strength of the Showcase, The Brighton Academy was awarded “The Inaugural Cameron Mackintosh Bursary” from the DCD (Dancers' Career Development).

And finally, on top of all of that, our students are already fulfilling their dreams by being offered professional work in such shows as “Jesus Christ Superstar” – U.S. Stadium Tour, “Shrek the Musical” - U.K Tour, Slickly Ballroom – U.K. Tour and acting in the upcoming motion picture, “Fraternity” - MCN Productions.

I hope you agree this is newsworthy especially if you think that all of the students involved couldn't afford to go to such an establishment elsewhere and would have given up on the their chance to realise their promise as professional performers.

If you would like anymore information please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone.
Kind regards,
Stuart Dawes :TBA Co-Principal

The Devil and Stepashka

A very gripping and haunting production

Little Red Hoodie
Part of a set of three plays entitled 'Retold' with new feminist angles on fairy tales. It's actually my first all-woman play. Quite dark, quite striking.

Both plays produced by Goblin Baby Theatre Co.
