OPEN EVENING

Wednesday 12th August 2015

STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 43rd season this week on Wednesday 12th August 2015 with an Open Evening aimed at recruiting potential new members and new patrons. The club is always keen to meet people in the local area who are interested in any aspect of drama or theatre arts and the Open Evening will be a perfect opportunity for people to come along and find out more.
The Group meet on Wednesday and Thursday 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.
Productions are cast by all interested Group members reading a section of the play script at a casting evening, 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 costumes, music and stage make-up.

Season 2014-15 was a tremendous success for the Group. The season opened with an informal ‘New Members & Patrons Open Evening’ in August, which saw several new members join the club and go on to give their debut performance for SDG later in the year. The first performance of the season was the group’s memorable production of the hit play ‘Bouncers’ which delighted audiences in October. That was followed by the group’s annual Pantomime ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ which played to packed houses in December. Finally, the season closed on a high at the end of May with three sell-out performances of the Scottish comedy classic ‘The Steamie’.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet now boasts 3 new pieces of silverware thanks to the success in the annual drama festival of their one-act play version of ‘Bouncers’, which won the 2015 Ayrshire Round of the SCDA One-Act Play Festival, and also picked up awards for Best Acting and Best Stage Lighting.
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 12th August from 7.30pm. This will be a great chance to come along, see round the Premises, have a chat with existing members, and find out more about the Group’s planned productions for the new drama season 2015-16.
Alternatively, for only £30 a year you can become a Patron of the award-winning Group and receive two tickets for each of their three 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, Morag Smith said:
“We’d love to meet you if you are interested in any aspect of drama - 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 Wednesday 12th August in our Premises.

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!

SMILE LIVERPOOL
DANCE, SPEECH & 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.
