GST Set Design Workshop

Contact: Please let us know if you will be coming along

Saturday April 26th, 2.00-5.00pm

Ever thought you’d like to design a stage set but don’t think you have the skill or the confidence?
Come to the GST Set Design Workshop
The workshop is being run by David Rance and Jo Eggleton Rance
(with help from some fellow GST designers we hope).
Learn about some of the practical problems and get hands-on experience of making plans and a set model. We hope this will lead to you designing, co-designing, or being an assistant designer for, a set for one of next season’s shows, but there would be no pressure on you to do so – you can just come for the experience.
Materials will be provided. It would be advisable for you to wear old clothes.
Do join us – it will be fun! – Jo and David

Monday 12th* - Saturday 17th May, 2014. 7.30pm

Our One Act Festival returns in May under the new title 'EK RepFest'.
Every May East Kilbride Rep Theatre Club hosts an annual competition in which various amateur dramatics clubs from all over the country perform a short one act play. Every play is adjudicated at the end of each night - publicly to the audience and privately to the cast and production team. On the final night of the Festival trophies from six different categories are awarded.
This year we have rebranded the festival as EK RepFest. We have also introduced a youth category to the competition. We welcome entries from youth drama groups with members aged 12-18, so as well as the usual six trophies there will be a separate award for Best Youth Play.
