email address? email@example.com - Click here
My name is Brad Robins. i am a sound and lighting technician. I am looking for some volunteering placement at young theater groups. I have been doing sound and lighting for 6 years now so i have plenty of experience. If you could send me some contact for me to get in touch with some theater that would be great.
I now also do portable theaters, where community centers can hire the light and sound desk from me.
Thanks for your email.
www.dramagroups.com isn't actually a Drama Group it is an online portal to allow Drama Groups and the amdram community to advertise themselves their shows, auditions, events, scripts, reviews, etc.
The best advice I can give you is to find some amateur groups that are near to you (look in our 'Groups' section there are quite a few listed). I'm sure you will find that any group will welcome you with open arms just give them a call or drop them an email.
I'll put your letter up in our 'Advice' section and perhaps a group local to you will contact you directly.
Do let me know how you get on.

|ABOUT WEBMASTER PETER|
Peter set up and has run DramaGroups.com for a few years now. I was one of the first people to go on his site and just want to say a few words about what he has achieved.
Dramagroups.com is a theatrical haven. Serving as a central site for groups and societies, it has developed and grown over time.
A mine of information, you can advertise shows and auditions; track lyrics; look for props and costumes; find or advertise a script and so on. There is even a 'Swap ideas' section. The site is well laid out and user friendly. It is uncluttered, full of information, attractive and welcoming.
Peter works tirelessly. In my experience he answers emails promptly, is extremely helpful and polite and gets the job done efficiently and as fast as he can. With so many people to deal with, I think this is admirable.
Without sites like Dramgroups.com, amateur theatrical life would be a great deal more difficult. I remember the old days, when one had to search all over for this or that prop, root out prospective actors who were reluctant to take to the boards, and hope to goodness that audiences would turn up on production nights. Now, with this sort of publicity and help, we can find like-minded folk who are only too happy to apply for parts, write plays, produce plays, swap a script or write a lyric etc. And all of this is due to Peter's inventiveness - someone who has recognised the needs of others, so that we can make use of all the varied facilities.
So from me, a BIG THANK YOU PETER for your help, guidance and support.

Article Title ABOUT WEBMASTER PETER:
Comment: I have only recently got to know Jane when she joined our Amateur theatre company and I played opposite her in The Hollow and now she is in our current sell out production of “A Woman of no Importance” by Oscar Wilde. A very generous actress and a lovely talented lady with great style.
Certainly I shall encourage Belmont Theatre Company to use this valuable site in the future.

Gillingham Dramatic Society
The following reviews have been supplied to Drama Groups by Gillingham Dramatic Society
Set in 1880’s London, this musical is based on “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson. It has been adapted many times for film and stage and this particular version appeared on Broadway in 1997.
The stark dark stage with only a staircase and ‘balcony’ set the scene and throughout, we were peering at the action through ‘atmospheric’ mist, which made it difficult at times to see anybody on that ‘balcony’. That said, the clever use of lighting, certainly made up for the lack of scenery and created such atmosphere, especially in ‘The Confrontation’, which needed good lighting timing.
Playing the very demanding dual role of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was a very talented Scott Highway who portrayed the torment of Jekyll and the evil of Hyde, terrifying yet emotional through both his singing and acting. Another strong performance was given by Debbie Brennan, who used her moving voice, to reflect the vulnerabilities of her character, Lucy. Rebecca Lehmann was well suited to the part of Emma, Jekyll’s love interest and gave a very moving performance when she cradled Jekyll on his demise. Tarquin Flanagan gave a good portrayal as Jekyll’s friend John Utterson reflecting the feelings of a captivated audience. In fact, all of the supporting cast made their individual characters their own – well done.
There was excellent choreography by Emma Hodge on what looked like a very cramped area (is that why you needed the extra bit in front of the stage?).
The music of this show is fantastic and it was brought to us by an excellent MD Peter Bailey, leading a super orchestra, hidden at the back of the stage. Why no mention of them in the programme? The sound system was quite loud but worked well after a minor hiccup at the beginning. Costumes were good.
This really was an excellent production directed by Francene Harris, with every single member of the cast and backstage crew pulling of what is a difficult musical to stage.
Thank you Jeannette and Stephen for your kindness and hospitality and I hope to meet you all on a future occasion.

Song and Dance Kidz|
I would like to introduce myself and my fledgling company. I have created a musical production company www.songanddancekidz.com which is dedicated to providing MORE ROLES FOR GIRLS. We are based in Sussex with myself (Brighton) scripting, Mike Gatton (Steyning) writing the songs and the brilliantly talented West End Musical Director Dominic Ferris (Shoreham) arranging and recording the music.
We have created all the resources - professionally recorded backing tracks, technical scripts, artwork and licences - for two amazing musicals which are now available to produce.
So if you, or a youth theatre group you know, are looking for an original musical as an alternative to the 'done to death' musicals which everyone does, then please check out our website where you can listen to the songs and download the scripts for FREE!
Our shows have been specifically written to provide meaty FEMALE ROLES to reflect the take-up of most youth theatre groups.
Break away from the crowd, give your girls decent parts to play and support local talent.
