Imagineering Your Play

Saturday, 28 November 2015 from 10:00 to 16:00

Facilitator: Nancy Medina
Bristol-based theatre director, Nancy Medina, has an MA in directing (Bristol Old Vic Theatre School) and has directed for the Redgrave, New Vic, Shakespeare's Globe, the Tobacco Factory, Edinburgh Fringe, Juno, Theatre West and the Salberg Studio theatres as director and assistant director. She is currently working with two playwrights on R&D projects to develop their scripts.

This one-day workshop for theatre writers and practitioners will give you the space, time and inspiration to:
• experiment with the elements of Disney’s ‘imagineering’ concept that make audiences connect with the drama
• experience bringing a play to life with a director's eye-view of the creative process
• explore with the support of other participants new ways of creating a really three-dimensional compelling piece of drama.

Smile Liverpool Festival - Opportunity for your students

Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th February 2016

Smile Productions are looking for the stars of tomorrow! This is your chance to enter your students to take part in Smile Liverpool - Dance, Speech and Drama Festival!


Sharon Collins has been performing since the tender age of three in some of Liverpool's most prestigious venues and toughest competitions. Her love of performance resulted in her setting up dance and drama company, Smile Productions, in 2005.

To celebrate this special 10 year anniversary, Sharon is bringing back an event that has remained close to her heart, the former Liverpool (performing arts) Festival, now known as Smile Liverpool - Dance, Speech & Drama Festival!

Taking place at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School on Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th February and opened by Radio City's Leanne Campbell, the festival will encourage talented, local students and develop the stars of tomorrow.

The festival is open to schools, drama, dance and community groups and will reward those who show promise in the various categories.

With over 124 sections in total, featuring different genres, open to a wide age range, solo performers as well as groups, there really is something for every talent.

All adjudicators will have professional qualifications in their field, as well as an abundance of experience.

29th May – 4th June 2016

In 2016 we will be staging our sixteenth festival of full-length plays at the Theatre Royal in Wakefield. If you would like to come and join the fun, we would be very pleased to hear from you. Applications for entry should be made on the enclosed form and be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than 6th January 2016, to meet the print deadline for the theatre’s summer brochure. However, we would like to receive as many scripts as possible over the next couple of months, to give all committee members time to read them.
As usual, the box-office takings for the week, following deduction of expenses, will be split equally between the competing teams. We encourage you to give consideration to this when making your choice of play. Whilst we aim to present a varied selection of plays, we do have to give consideration to the financial viability of the festival.
Last year, the audience total was 1,504. This resulted in the festival making a profit of £5,746.93 and the sum of £821 being paid to each of the seven teams. Hopefully we will be able to exceed this next year!
