Shakespeare Showcase



Sat, Nov 11, 2017 7:30pm Sun, Nov 12, 2017 2:30pm
A raging storm casts a prince across the sea, a knight stands up for hated immigrants, roles are reversed in the forest of Arden and a killer woos his victim’s spouse. Deadly enemies, reluctant lovers, despairing heroes and teasing friends march together through unmapped parts of Shakespeare’s incredible works.

Help needed for a NFTS shooting next week

Hi there!

I'm contacting you regarding the project “The girl with two heads”, a film project for the National Film and Television School. We hoped some of your members could be of assistance during the shooting. We are looking for 20 men and women from High Wycombe or near by. Ages between 20-45 to be supporting artists for our short film.

We’re looking for supporting artists in the surrounding areas to come and act as observers of the fight scene and some people acting as trainers for the next fight in the background. All supporting artists are non-speaking. We just require a good attitude and a love for the sport! Filming will take place on a Hight Wycombe Boxing club and artists will be required the 28th and 29th of September. If you’re only available for one of the required shoot dates then please still get in touch as we may be able to accommodate this. Sadly as the school is a charity we’re unable to pay for your time on this occasion but we will provide food and drink throughout the day.

It would be great if people who may be interested in being apart of our film could contact us via email and then we will contact them to answer any questions they may have.

The situation is time sensitive so I would appreciate it if we could "close" everyone in the next couple of days...

Thank you in advance for your assistance in our search!

Cheers,

Yelena Guillen Ortega

Hi Im 50 is there a group for me?

Peter's response:

Hello Julia,

The answer is yes of course, age is no barrier to joining an amateur dramatics group.

You don’t say where you are located and I’m afraid I probably wouldn’t know the groups or schools in your area and so would be unable to make any recommendations. I suggest you take a look at the Groups section of the www.dramagroups.com website and check the groups and schools in your County/Region. There will be groups and societies listed with contact details. If in doubt click on the group name or logo and that will take you directly to the group’s own website. In my experience most groups and schools would welcome any new member with open arms.

Best of luck, let me know how you get on.

Peter

I represent The Grand Pavilion in Matlock Bath (www.thegrandpavilion.co.uk) which was bought from the council in 2013 by a charity run by local people keen to save and restore this historic building. It is a restoration project and all profits go back into the restoration fund.

We would like theatre groups to visit our ‘Little Bit Scruffy’ venue with a view to using it for performances and rehearsals. We have three usable spaces (all insured and with good fire safety systems):

- Grey Room 9.5x9.5m square, high ceilings, triple aspect windows, south facing, polished wood floor - £10/hr
- Nuttall Room 9.5x9.5m square, high ceilings, triple aspect windows, north facing, unpolished wood floor - £10/hr
- Main Hall – very large room with bar and stage. Stage is 6’ high and has large wings left and right and there are 4 changing rooms underneath. Main hall seats up to 400 (flat). We also have 20’ wide staging at 2’high to use with the main stage or instead of the main stage.

Local groups booking a room for a performance will get most of their rehearsal time free of charge.

Copperdollar Studios are two unique studios situated in the heart of Brighton’s Kemptown on the East Sussex coast. They are available to be hired by the creative community of Brighton and beyond. They are popular with photographers and videographers because of their rustic walls, wooden floors and variation of textured aesthetics that create a rich choice for backdrops. Theatre companies and musicians who need a quiet yet rich shabby chic atmospheric for music videos and band shoots make use of the space, too. They are available from 8am to 10pm, 7 days a week.
Although we can't accept regular small slot bookings, both of the studios can be block booked or rented as a one off which makes them perfect for summer programmes, workshops and training.
The booking rate is reduced by 50% for students.
You can check the studios out on our website and social media platforms

Support Your Local Amateur Theatre Group

Author: Norma Phillips
Secretary of
Teesside Musical Theatre Company

Contact: nphillips6@gmail.com

We hope that Teesside Musical Theatre Company’s (TMTC) reputation will encourage audiences to buy tickets for the upcoming 2017 production of “Spamalot” being performed at Middlesbrough Theatre on 15-20 May 2017. “Spamalot” was aptly described by the Newcastle Evening Chronicle as “a pantomime for all seasons”, and our production promises to be spectacular and hilarious, appealing to everyone who wants to leave the theatre feeling thoroughly entertained. The only pain you will experience from this encounter with a “python” is the ache in your ribs from so much laughter.

TMTC were excited to secure the rights to “Spamalot” in 2014 to be the first North East Amateur Company to perform the show. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, tickets sales are likely to be adversely affected by the fact that many people may have already seen the show recently in the local area.

True to the “Spamalot” ethos, we are determined to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, and rehearsals are progressing well. Our Committee and Members endeavour to be supportive of each other and work together to ensure the survival of local amateur theatre. Several members of Teesside Musical Theatre Youth Company are also part of the cast, giving them valuable experience in a full scale production and helping to secure the future of TMTC.

For “Spamalot” TMTC also have a Youtube page with amusing videos providing a taster of the production and showing how much fun the cast is having at rehearsals. Visit the page at www.youtube.com and subscribe to receive news of future videos.

We need the support of local audiences to come and join in the fun at Middlesbrough Theatre from 15-20 May 2017 by ordering tickets from our ticket secretaries, Jacquie Kelly (tel: 07712 485211) and Sue Bargewell (tel: 07806 786327) or from the Box Office on 01642 815181. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for Under 14s.
