THE BROWNING VERSION - A REHEARSED READING

Author: by Terence Rattigan

THE BROWNING VERSION - A REHEARSED READING



Sunday 29th October 7.45pm, Main Stage
Andrew Crocker-Harris, or 'The Crock' as his students cruelly call him, teaches classics at an English boys' school. He is despised by pupils and staff alike as being strict, stern and humourless. Even Millie, his wife, no longer loves him and has started an affair with Frank Hunter, another teacher. On his last day at work before retiring, one student, Taplow, who feels sorry for him, gives him a small going-away gift. This puts into motion a series of events that cause Crocker-Harris to reflect on his past, contemplate his future, and evaluate how he is going to finish his tenure at the school. The Browning Version, first performed in 1948, cemented Rattigan’s reputation as a serious, mature playwright. It is considered one of his best works, and one of the best one-act plays ever written. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

Christmas Social

Christmas Social



Monday 11th December 2017 at 7:30pm

We've spent some time at Wayfarers Towers getting boxes down out of the loft and dusting our tinsel to check we're going to be ready for our Christmas Party and you're all invited to come along to the Theatre in the Hut to celebrate with us.

In the true style of Christmas Parties, there will be mulled wine; too many mince pies and things on sticks; and some questionable carol singing.

We'd also love it if you wanted to read us a Christmas poem; tell us a jolly Christmas story or perform a short Christmas sketch for us.

In addition to that we'll have splendid party games; a Christmas quiz and the opportunity to pin the nose on Rudolph.

The wearing of Christmas Jumpers or Fancy Dress is not compulsory, but it is actively encouraged.

The harsh reality of alcohol/drug psychosis

Hi there,

My name is Steve Millar. I work as a Support Worker for a large Northeast charity.

Some time ago I approached the local BBC. I wished to try and bring the subject of alcohol/drug psychosis into the public eye. It is terrifying/euphoric and every imaginable emotion. I was unable to keep up my correspondence with them due to a manpower shortage at work. However, I contacted them yesterday in an attempt to see how the land now lies with this. I am a recovering alcoholic who has had numerous psychotic episodes, thankfully coming out the other end due to fantastic hospital staff. I have catalogued a large number of incidents which occurred during these times, including 2 sections under the mental health act. I have written if that is the word a couple of pieces that would take a couple of minutes viewing on social media..

I have a family member and a co-worker wanting to help but are reluctant to be on film as it were. Due to the fact people in psychosis are often naked, and use very strong language. is not a problem for me but would limit social media I believe, having been through several episodes I wish to act it as it were. I would of course contact HR at at my work if I got any interest in the subject. At the moment my aim is for social media. I wonder if you would be able to assist me in finding any others with perhaps a personal or strong wish to bring the subject out in the open. I realise this is a long shot and it's pretty obscure subject matter, however you can only ask.

As I mentioned I have documented some pretty terrifying incidents but also some which are pretty funny. I am involved in a national conference shortly(incidentally the public speaking at which rekindled my drive for this subject.) I'm not looking for freebies or such. If there are a few folk to make up numbers. I only wish a couple of mins to get the ball rolling with a 2 minute film and something to approach the BBC as i feel I let them down at last contact. All the very best.

Steve

Cinderella Props

My name is Keith Ives and I am the Stage manager for St Mawes Players in Cornwall.
Earlier this year we put on a very successful pantomime of Cinderella. For this we made a beautiful coach for Cinderella to go to the ball in, to pull the coach we made four horses heads, and also a large pumpkin, sewing needle, cotton reel, a huge pair of scissors and a cage with four very realistic looking mice. In total it cost nearly five hundred pounds to make it all, so are hoping to try and recoup some of the cost.

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.

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.
