|The Pride of Teesside
Author: Norma Phillips
Teesside Musical Theatre Company
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.

The Orwell Players is facing a crisis (sounds of shock and horror off stage). We have the actors (HOORAY), we have the technicians (HOORAY), we have a great village hall (YES) and soon it’ll have new toilets (YES, YES).
But we don’t have a Director (Aaaaaah).
Do you have what it takes to herd a group luvvies? Do you have the artistic insight to cut through the froth and see the nugget of inner truth? Do you have …… well do you have any experience in directing drama groups?
If so we would love to hear from you. We have a packed social calendar this year but would love to put on another production.
TOPs NEEDS YOU
And the first of our tightly packed social events this year is an evening of play readings in the back room of Orwell Village Hall from 8:00 on Thursday 25th February. Three of our leading lights will be taking volunteers to read excerpts from three plays. Which will be fun, possibly helped along by the free wine and nibbles (he was my favourite hamster).
Come along and take part, or just sit at the back drinking. We’ve all been there.

Can anyone recommend a good media player to use for stage productions please? I need something for a musical next week, but I'm not happy with the regular media players. I want something where I can organise a playlist, and play individual tracks that will stop playing when the track ends (and not automatically play the next track), as well as play multiple tracks at the same time (background FX etc.), easily.
I don’t know of a media player specifically for stage productions, we’ve discussed this at my own group but so far come up with nothing. I’ve placed an entry for you in the #Advice section of the www.dramagroups.com website. I hope you get some good advice. Do let me know how you get on.
