ALISON CHAPLIN


Playwright


Contact details: www.treepress.org

I've been writing plays since I was 11 or 12 and used to 'persuade' friends and neighbours to perform them! I have now written and published over 20 plays for children. My background as a drama and English teacher, and as the Artistic Director of a local youth theatre, has been great for developing ideas, stories and writing techniques. I have also written five drama resource books, published by Scholastic and, in 2006, I gained an MA in TV and Radio Scriptwriting which gave me another creative outlet. I particularly love writing for young actors, though, because I have never really grown up - and because they are the most discerning (and honest!) readers.

The Pride of Teesside

Author: Norma Phillips
Secretary of
Teesside Musical Theatre Company

Contact: normaphillips3@hotmail.com

A follow up to my article "Family Matters" to highlight the impact of one particular family dedicated to keeping Teesside Musical Theatre Company alive.

The Pride of Teesside

Following my article, “Family Matters”, which was posted on this website recently, I was inspired to disclose more about the family values that have been an integral part of Teesside Musical Theatre Company for decades. I originally intended to make specific reference to several of the families involved, but I realised this would probably just become a long list of names, and I could also be in danger of excluding someone.

I, therefore, decided to focus on our Producer, Alison Dale, whose family has been a part of Teesside Musical Theatre Company (previously known as Teesside Operatic Society) for most of its existence. Kath Dawson, Alison’s mother, was a leading lady for many years before retiring from the stage to take over as Business Manager and Wardrobe Mistress. Alison and her sisters were, therefore, brought up in the amateur theatre world, and Alison naturally started to take on leading roles from an early age.

In recent years, Alison decided that, as well as acting in productions, she would like to use her extensive experience to produce shows for Teesside Musical Theatre Company. This revealed that Alison has an amazing talent for visualisation, creating a masterpiece as an artist would with paints and canvas. The cast and crew can always be confident that following Alison’s direction will result in another spellbinding production that we can all be proud of. It is a joy to be part of the process, and it is heartwarming when Alison thanks the cast and crew for making her visions into a reality. She always expresses her appreciation and pride and commands the respect of all involved.

With the help of Stockton Stage Society, Alison introduced the use of back projection with minimalist sets, which makes scene changes so fluid and seamless, to great effect. I particularly remember our production of “The Sound of Music” when Maria changed from being a nun in the Mother Superior’s Office to walking through the streets clutching her guitar and suitcase, arriving at the von Trapp mansion, without leaving the stage (using a screen to allow her to change costume)! In “The Producers” Max Bialystock is transported from a prison cell to Broadway theatre land with minimal set changes.

Since then, the usual schedule is 6-7 productions per year, some of which are specifically Junior or Youth productions. All current details are to be found on the website: www.chipsteadplayers.org

The Ghost Train

Author: by Arnold Ridley
Directed by Martyn Williams

The Ghost Train



22nd - 24th September 2016 7:45pm
A group of travellers find themselves stranded late at night at a remote railway station and, despite the station master's stark warnings, decide to spend the night and await the first morning train. However, true to the station master's word, events throughout the night threaten to drive the group half to madness as the ghostly train that haunts the line approaches, promising death to all those who lay eyes upon it.

SUSPICIOUS CONTACT
I wondered if anyone else has been receiving similar emails to the following:-

“I came across your email address at (http://www.dramagroups.com/) and I would so much like us to be friends. I have something important to discuss with you.

Cheers.”?


I have received more than one, and identical to the above, from apparently different people.
Thank you.
Kind regards,
Lorna Baillie
Director
Durham Dales Festival of Performing Arts

Peter's response:

Hi Lorna,
I’m sorry you have been bothered with spam email, please rest assured that it is nothing to do with www.dramagroups.com. We would not email such a thing to you and would not / have not released email addresses to anyone. The only way that these people could have picked up your email address is by trawling the www.dramagroups.com website. If you would like me to remove your email address from our website just let me know and I’ll take it down.

It is unfortunate that people abuse the email system in this way as it is the easiest way for genuine people to get in touch if they do not use social media.

I’ll put your comments up in our #Advice section along with my reply and ask our visitors for comments.

Best Regards,

Peter

A Proper Caper And No Mistake
I stumbled on an article in 2009 about a play called "A Proper Caper And No Mistake" by Anthea Roberts that was performed by the Buckfastleigh Drama Group. The story sounds absolutely fascinating and I was reaching out to see if there are any hard copies available of the play. Or even a digital copy. I would love to purchase one for reading.

Date Req'd: ASAP
