PROPS ADVICE!
Hi, I'm designing for a production of Dracula in March and this is a bit random but I was thinking back projecting onto some victorian hospital screens could look really cool so I was wondering if anybody had any insight into where I could get some? We're based in Liverpool so the screens would have to be able to be dismantled to transport.


Peter's response:

Hi Lucy, I'm afraid I don't have any direct knowledge of how to achieve this effect. I'll place an entry in the #Advice section of www.dramagroups.com and ask people to contact you directly
Best of luck, let me know how you get on.

Peter

Dear All
I hope that you have had a lovely summer, although at the current time of writing this it feels like autumn has arrived already!

The Addams Family
Last term was at times a tricky term and we ended up with a smaller cast than we have had in a while due to many reasons. However what a cast and show week it was!

The help given from those parents and other friends who were able to help was simply amazing and truly appreciated, whether it was a few hours or several days. The cast really pulled together with many of the senior members coming in earlier to help and once again a special thank you to Jade Stygall for all the extra help that you gave. I know various members were excited and pleased with themselves that they had managed to actually paint some set some in block colours and others in more detail ;-)

Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society - CATS

C.A.T.S. originated from the Carlos Players which were formed in the 1930s in Cheadle in the Staffordshire Moorlands. The Carlos Players used to perform at the local Church Hall, known as the Carlos Institute. In 1974, the Institute was demolished and the group moved their performances to the Lecture Theatre at Cheadle High School. The group changed its name to ‘Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society’ or ‘C.A.T.S.’ for short. Since 1974, we have built up a reputation for our performances and attract our membership from the local area as well as further afield. We have won many awards both on stage, behind the scenes and front of house.
We do at least 3 performances a year. In February, we perform our annual Traditional Pantomime, written and directed by our own members. In March/April we enter the All England One Act Play Festival and in late October C.A.T.S. perform the October play.The venue for our Pantomimes and October plays is the Cheadle Community Theatre, Cheadle Academy, Station Road, Cheadle, Staffs.
We have around 50 members. Minimum age is 11 years, but we also have members of 70+. Why not contact us? We are constantly looking for new members both on stage and off.
Rehearsals take place on Mondays and Friday evenings at Cheadle County Primary School, Cheadle. Pentomime rehearsals start in early November and the October play rehearsals commence in May. The One Act Play rehearsals, start in February.

West Moors Drama Society

In November my drama group performed the play 'DRINKING HABITS' by Tom Smith. It went really well.
If another drama group were thinking of putting on this play I can recommend it.
It was great fun to direct and the audience reaction on all three nights was so good.

Plus...we have the nun's habits, priests/Cardinals costumes etc which we are looking to sell for a moderate cost should anyone be interested in staging this play. (our wardrobe Mistress was very busy!)

I am looking for some scripts for Say Who You Are by Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall.
I am hoping to direct this play next year but the play is out of print and I wondered if any society would have some tucked away in their library of plays?
I have permission to photocopy the one copy I have but I thought I would see if anyone had any copies first.

Nov 2014 onwards

Publisher Samuel French Ltd
£5.25 ISBN 978 0 573 120558

If you're looking for a One Act or Festival Entry This play has done very well in One Act Festival around the UK. 2 strong female lead roles. 1 Male

Frances, a spinster in her fifties, has been living alone since her mother died, now she is eagerly anticipating the arrival of her idol, Ezzlie Harlow, an ex-singing star who has fallen on hard times and to whom she has offered a home. Ezzlies agent has led her to believe that she is moving to a mansion and when she arrives Ezzlie is horrified to find herself in a terraced house, in a little village, miles from anywhere. She makes it clear, in no uncertain terms, that she has no intention of staying. Frances is shocked at Ezzlie’s attitude to her and her home, especially when she realises that Ezzlie feels that life has treated here badly, and that the last place she wants to be is living with a frumpy middle-aged woman in a house with no whiskey and no ice! However, from this bad beginning the women move on to form a mutually beneficial relationship, and they find that life still has plenty to offer them. Ezzlie introduces Frances to a world of glamour, and with new found organisational skills, Frances helps Ezzlie realise a life-long dream.
An enjoyable play to read, and I would think, even more enjoyable to perform. It moves along at a good pace, the women’s characters are well drawn, there is plenty of humour but also some pathos, A good festival play.
