Tullie Talks Lunchtime Lectures

Tullie Talks Lunchtime Lectures

Tuesday 6 August
Free entry. Talks start at 1pm in the Lecture Theatre

Lisa Hopkins
The Border on Shakespeare’s Stage

Professor Lisa Hopkins will explore Shakespeare and his fellow dramatists links to the Border and what they wrote about it. For example: The Border warden Lord Hunsdon was the patron of Shakespeare’s company before they became the King’s Men, and his son Sir Robert Carey, also a warden, may be remembered in Macbeth. This talk will discuss Macbeth and will also look at Robert Greene’s James the Fourth, which mentions Carlisle and contains a character who is said to be ‘a Redesdale man’; Anthony Brewer’s The Lovesick King, written for King James I’s visit to Newcastle; and John Ford’s Perkin Warbeck, which features a cross-Border raid.

SDG Premises in the Scout Building beside the Tennis Courts in Corsehillbank Street, Stewarton

NEW MEMBERS OPEN EVENING

Wednesday 07 August 2019 at 7.30pm

STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 47th season of drama on Wednesday 07 August 2019 with an Open Evening aimed at recruiting potential new members and new patrons. They will follow that up the very next evening, by holding Open Auditions for ‘Cinderella’ which will be open to anyone in the local community over the age of 18 who would like to get involved in the pantomime that the group hope to perform in Stewarton during the first week of December 2019.
The group are always keen to meet people in the local area who are interested in any aspect of drama or theatre arts and the informal Open Evening and Pantomime Auditions will be a perfect opportunity for people to come along and find out more about getting involved either on stage or off stage.
The Group meet on Wednesday evenings in their own Premises, complete with a fully functional stage, rehearsal room, costume store, kitchen and lounge, in the Scout Building, Corsehillbank Street, beside the Tennis Courts in Stewarton.
At the Open Evening on Wednesday 07 August, the group will explain how productions are cast and will demonstrate what will happen the following evening at the Pantomime Auditions, to help any new members feel comfortable about the process. This usually involves all those who are interested in a part reading aloud a short section of the script, so that the director can select the right actors and actresses for the parts.
The group then get to work on the technical side of the production where there is always plenty to do building the scenery, designing and painting the set, collecting or making the props, preparing the lighting and sound plans, and choosing the right songs, music, costumes, make-up as well as planning the choreography. The group are keen to meet lots of new people who would like to get involved in all of these areas.
Season 2018-19 was a tremendous success for the Group. The season opened with an informal Open Evening in August when a rehearsed reading of a short play was performed for the enjoyment of all those attending. The comedy drama play ‘Time of My Life’ by Alan Ayckbourn was the first of the group’s two major public performance last year which played to packed houses in the Stewarton Area Centre in October 2018. Later in the season the group performed Neil Simon’s hilarious America comedy ‘Plaza Suite’ which delighted audiences in May 2019. In addition to this, the group performed a further “in-house” production of Three Scottish Plays in their own Premises in January 2019 for the enjoyment of their loyal Patrons and friends.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet is now proudly displaying seven new pieces of silverware, following on from their recent success at drama festivals across the country with their production of ‘A Galway Girl’ which made it through to the National Final of the Scottish Community Drama Association’s One Act Play Festival, where they performed as one of the top 8 plays in Scotland last year.
If all of that encourages you to find out more about getting involved next season, the Group are inviting anyone, over the age of 18, interested in local theatre to drop into their Premises in the town’s Corsehillbank Street on Wednesday 07 August from 7.30pm. This will be a great chance to come along, see round the Premises and have a chat with existing members and find out more about the Open Auditions for Cinderella on Thursday 08 August at 7.30pm.
Alternatively, for only £30 a year you can become a Patron of the award-winning Group and receive two tickets for each of their annual shows in the Stewarton Area Centre as well as a complimentary copy of the Group’s monthly newsletter ‘Cuelines’ and invitations to any in-house ‘Patrons Evenings’ that the group perform within their own Premises.

Drama Group President, Walter Findlay said:
“We’d love to meet you if you are interested in any aspect of theatre - whether you fancy treading the boards, helping out backstage, building scenery, working on lights and sound, making props or costumes, singing and dancing in our pantomime chorus, or simply supporting the Group by becoming a Patron - please come along and meet us on either, or both, of dates in our Premises - Wednesday 07 August and Thursday 08 August !

Workshop 8: Writing for Comedy

Saturday 31 August 10.00 to 17.00

Led by John Knowles

John Knowles will lead a day-long workshop exploring comedy writing for the theatre and taking your script from page to stage. The workshop will focus on duologues in particular, and in developing characters as well as looking at some rules (yes, there are some) and simple joke-writing techniques. The workshop will include plenty of hands-on exercises and an opportunity to have your work read by two professional actors. The Workshop is suitable for writers aged 18+ at all stages of their scriptwriting journey.

The day will be split into two key areas:

Morning session: 10.00am-12.45pm
Duologues, development, voice and character.

The workshop will explore the challenges of writing duologues, finding your character’s voices (mining your characters and taking a view). We’ll be looking at character outlines and backstories.

Break for Lunch 12.45pm – 1.45pm

Afternoon session: 1.45 pm – 4.30pm
The afternoon session will be focused around actual writing and creating comedy scenes which will be read/performed at the end of the session. We will also be looking at techniques for joke writing (if you want a gag fest) and a quick look at some sitcom rules.Places are limited to 12 participants so early booking is recommended.

We regret that this venue does not have disabled access. Nearest parking (pay & display) is The Bourne car park and there is more space at Rock-a-Nore car park on the Stade (10-15 minutes’ walk).

Tickets £65, students £55, available below (limited numbers)
