The Latimer Players Need You

Fed up with doing the same old thing or just staying in every evening - have you thought about playing a character in a pantomime? Well, now’s your chance!

The Latimer Players drama group started in 1952 and has been putting on plays, musical productions, reviews and pantomimes in The Memorial Hall Thurcaston every year since they began. This year, in November, we are performing ‘Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates’ and we are looking for new members to take part . You will be given a very warm welcome if you come to the casting meeting on Wednesday 7th August at 7.30pm in the Memorial Hall, Thurcaston.

Please don’t think you have to be experienced; none of us are Dame Judy or Hugh Grant, but we try hard and have a lot of fun. We need people to be in the chorus and to take on character roles. There are also back stage jobs to fill like making costumes, painting scenery and looking after props. If you think this is something you would like to try, please give the Secretary, Christine Deavin, a ring on 0116 2376855 and remember all we ask for is enthusiasm.

As well as taking part in productions, we also have monthly Members’ Evenings where we try to do something different. This year we are planning to have an evening in an escape room, skittles, barbecue, theatre trip, Christmas lunch. Nearly all of these events involve food or a pub.

We would really love to see you on 7th August and for you to get you involved. Oh, yes we would!

Exciting Opportunity at Revolution, Aberdeen

Hi there,

We have an exciting opportunity at Revolution on Belmont Street, Aberdeen to give paid weekly work to acting groups every Saturday night from roughly 8pm-2am.

The sets would include fancy dress as various themes each week and a combination of interacting with customers, PRing on the street, delivering bottles to tables and dancing in the venue.

The aim is to transform our Saturday nights into an exciting atmosphere and create something totally different for our customers, unlike anything else in Aberdeen. It's a very low risk, high energy and fun opportunity for any actors or performers to showcase their talent, come up with sets and be creative.

The role would involve a meeting with myself midweek to discuss set times, content and costumes and then the actual performance and activity on Saturday night.

In Revolution Glasgow Mitchell Street they regularly showcase this every week and I've attached some great examples.

I understand this is a bit different from what you might usually do and if you have any questions please let me know.

If this is something you would like to know more about please get in touch and we'll arrange a coffee and a chat.

Kind regards,

Ben Jones

AUDITIONS!!

After nearly a year since taking a break from our last production, we have changed our creative team and are on the search for budding actors for our next season of plays.
We last staged 'Romeo and Juliet' in August 2018 and are now planning for November 2019 and April 2020 productions.

Up to 2 Male actors and 1 Female actor are required:
Ben - (late 20's to early 50's) Intense hitman, menacing and brooding.
Richard - (late 20's to early 40's). Quiet businessman with hidden depths!
Sarah - (late 20's to early 40's) Quiet housewife with hidden depths!
Please note, Ben and Richard can be played by the same actor if you wish to audition for both.
The double bill will be staged locally on 29 and 30 November. Rehearsals will begin at the end of September, two nights a week (TBC)


Whole Hog's April 2020 production is 'The Woman Who Cooked Her Husband' by Debbie Isitt, best known as the writer & director of the 'Nativity!' movies.
This play requires 2 Female actors:
Hilary-(early 30's to early 40's)- put upon housewife pushed to the edge and ready for revenge!
Laura-(late 20's to late 30's)-mistress to Hilary's husband, annoyed at her rival's sway over her lover!
Again, if you wish to audition for Sarah in 'The Lover', there is nothing stopping you auditioning for Laura too, as they are both the same playing age.
The play will be entered for consideration to be performed at the Isle of Man Drama Festival over the Easter weekend which runs for a week. Flights and accommodation will be covered.
Rehearsals will be every Sunday beginning January 2020.

Sunday 30th June 2-5pm Jury's Inn Hotel (Conference Suite), Central Swindon

TV production team in the University of Gloucestershire Need a person for production

Hi

My name is Rob, and I am part of a TV production team in the University of Gloucestershire and we were wondering if there is anyone who would be interested in working with us on a TV drama production. Our drama is called ‘Shell phone’ and is about a couple who no longer see each other, connect with a special why of staying connected. Ivy is a character who will find a conch shell underneath her bed. She then giggles when hearing waves crashing on the shore from inside the the shell. Ken, who is by the sea, picks a shell up and hears Ivy giggling from it.

If this sparks any interests, please respond as soon as possible.

We are looking for a male actor aged around 65 – 75 who will play the role of KEN. Ken is a rugged character who likes to spend his days going for walks by the beach and reminiscing on the past. In the scene, he will be sat on a bench looking out at the sea. Ken looks down at a crumpled photo of him and Ivy he takes out of his wallet and smiles. In the corner of his eye he spots a shell on the beach and picks it up. From this, he can faintly hear the giggling of Ivy.

Kind regards,
The Shell phone production team

'Like The Prose' - A Writing Opportunity

I hope you are well and enjoying spring! We’re still reeling from our incredibly successful ‘28 Plays Later’ playwriting challenge in February. As we gear up for our next project, short stories in June, we wondered if you had any aspiring storytellers amongst your members? We’re delighted to invite you and your members to join us again, this time for Like The Prose.

Like The Prose will be the second challenge of the year from The Literal Challenge - a company that brings together a community of writers, wannabe writers and newbies through creative challenges. Over the last five Februarys, we’ve run four 28 Plays Later, a play-a-day writing challenge that has inspired the writing of 26,649 plays! Now, we’re expanding into the world of short stories, and we’d love for you to be part of this pioneering project.

Participants will be sent a daily brief and will have 36 hours to write a short story in response. Stories are submitted online and it’s up to you how you choose to develop any, all, or none of your pieces once June has come to an end.

I hope that you will be just as excited as I am to share it with your students. Registrations are now open through the website www.theliteralchallenge.com and will be open until the 28th of May.

The registration fee is £19.84 and participants will have the choice of taking part by meeting the daily deadlines and receiving a share of the money from all people who dropped out, or, participating without deadlines and the risk of disqualification.

Many thanks and have a fantastic day,
Lydia (The Literal Challenge)
