Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale

Contact:
Contact the director by email for details - gilly.manor.farm.barn@gmail.com

Auditions dates 11, 14 & 15 September
Performance dates March 24 - 27 at The Electric Theatre,Guildford


Jessica Swale's play opened at Shakespeare's Globe theatre in August 2013. She chose as her theme for this, her first play, a cracking subject: the battle fought at Girton College, Cambridge, in 1896 to earn women the right to graduate.The Girton girls study ferociously but when the men graduate they leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural educated woman. The play follows 4 of them over one tumultuous academic year with its distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide and the strength of the opposition who will do anything to stop them
'Blue Stockings' offers a range of exciting roles ( 8f and 11m) with age ranges from 20 - 50+ for a minimum company of 12 actors.

Would very much apreasaet some one getting in tuch with me thank you.


Peter's response:

Hi Tricia,
Thanks for your email.
I appreciate how difficult it must be for you to make the initial contact with groups in your area but I urge you to take a little bit of time to look at the Groups pages for Scotland which you will find on the www.dramagroups.com website. Most of the Groups have web pages, simply click on the Group name or its logo and you'll be taken directly to their website. I'm sure you'll find one in your area. Most groups welcome new members with open arms and I don't think it will matter that you are dyslexic, there are many successful actors who have overcome the condition. You mustn’t allow it to hold you back.

I’ll place your email in our advice column in the hope that some groups will make contact with you directly.

Best Wishes to you and please do let me know how you get on.

Peter

The Brighton Academy

As you know
Three years ago, myself and three other similar Brighton based performers opened a performing arts college in Hove with one sole purpose: to give young singers, dancers and actors of any financial background, professional training rivalling anywhere else in the country.
We have made our training affordable for all. This means the only criteria that we look for in our yearly auditions are talent and potential, thus ensuring that no talented young performer gets left behind based on their parent’s financial state.
This philosophy has been backed by some of the country’s leading professionals including Tony and Olivier Award winning choreographers and directors Matthew Bourne and Stephen Mear and star of stage and screen; David Essex. Not to mention the performers who travel to Hove every day from London to teach our students.
It is this backing that has allowed us to help, so many local up and coming performers, that otherwise would have had no chance of affording college whilst giving them the chance to train with the west-ends finest and have a real shot at an incredible career on the stage.

I am writing to you as I believe we may have an interesting story (or three) for your Community News. On the 27thMarch, our premier graduating year performed in their industry showcase, “Making Waves” at the Leicester Square Theatre, in London's West End and from this gained representation from some of leading theatrical agents in the business!

Secondly, based solely on the strength of the Showcase, The Brighton Academy was awarded “The Inaugural Cameron Mackintosh Bursary” from the DCD (Dancers' Career Development).

And finally, on top of all of that, our students are already fulfilling their dreams by being offered professional work in such shows as “Jesus Christ Superstar” – U.S. Stadium Tour, “Shrek the Musical” - U.K Tour, Slickly Ballroom – U.K. Tour and acting in the upcoming motion picture, “Fraternity” - MCN Productions.

I hope you agree this is newsworthy especially if you think that all of the students involved couldn't afford to go to such an establishment elsewhere and would have given up on the their chance to realise their promise as professional performers.

If you would like anymore information please don't hesitate to contact me via email or phone.
Kind regards,
Stuart Dawes :TBA Co-Principal

Whodunnit – a comedy thriller by Anthony Shaffer


This brilliant and unusual little play opens with a taped message from the murderer telling the audience that what they are about to witness isn’t just another murder mystery. The voice confesses that he/she is the murderer and they are to look and listen for clues to help them solve the case.

The entire play takes place in the library of Orcas Champflower Manor, a rather grand 18th century house, located somewhere in the south of England. Six strangers and a butler have gathered for a dinner in a wealthy lawyers mansion during a thunderstorm.

We have thoroughly enjoyed putting together a set of suitable 1930’s costumes for each of the characters and sincerely thank Adhoc Theatre Group for the use of some of the wonderful photographs from their production.

For more information about our period costumes visit www.admiralcostumes.co.uk or call us on 01908 372504
