I am a drama student and have a project on slapstick comedy in theatre as prelude to a production with a Chaplin theme.
I'm trying to identify as many productions as possible that feature scenes of slapstick physical comedy especially the classic pie in the face, water/food gags.
Panto which of course features such scenes is not in my scope, I'm focused on comedy, farce or even straight drama that might include slapstick.
I already identified some plays such as Comic Potential, Mack and Mabel or the musical Singin in the Rain but I'd much appreciate if you would know of other plays featuring slapstick.
Many thanks
Julie Ashdown

Peter's response:

Hello Julie,
Interesting question, nothing immediately springs to mind but I’ll have a think and get back to you with anything that occurs to me. In the meantime I’ll post your query on our Advice column and our Facebook, Google+ and Twitter streams in the hope that someone more knowledgeable than I will be able to supply more/better information.
Do let me know how you get on.

Best Wishes,

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

The Devil and Stepashka

A very gripping and haunting production

Little Red Hoodie
Part of a set of three plays entitled 'Retold' with new feminist angles on fairy tales. It's actually my first all-woman play. Quite dark, quite striking.

Both plays produced by Goblin Baby Theatre Co.

Morella - a gothic opera

Contact Jack Smith
I'm Jack Smith - the composer of the musical opera, and myself and my lyricist - Lesley - produced a show as part of Macclesfield's Barnaby Arts Festival back in June 2014. It was a huge success - it was a sellout and received a standing ovation.
Now we're looking to expand further - encourage more people to get on board and work towards a full production. Please assist us in getting a complete team of vocalists, instrumentalists and anybody wanting to help us theatrically, be that production, backstage, sound etc.
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Should you wish for me to post a flyer to you instead then please just let me know.
Thanks for your time

The hunt is on for a crack team of local actors to take on the show of a lifetime. They will need great comic timing, strong singing voices, tap dancing, and for the lead role… a thick Brummie accent, varicose veins and your own yellow rubber gloves.
