Undressed

I am an Assistant Producer on a dating show called Undressed, and we’re currently casting. We’re casting for men and women aged 18+, who are genuinely looking for love and want to try a totally new and unique way of finding their perfect match!

From the makers of ‘The Secret Life of 4, 5 & 6 Year Olds’ comes a dating show with a difference, that dares to ask if it's possible to fall in love with a complete stranger in just 30 minutes. Inspired by studies from American psychologist Arthur Aron, we’re aiming to carefully match two single people together, to embark on a series of questions in order to get to know one another better.

We’re going to be holding auditions in Manchester/Birmingham/London/Essex so I would be very grateful if you could circulate our attached flyer to your friends and family, colleagues and customers.

If you have a work intranet or social network, please feel free to post this online (the poster is jpeg so it can easily be uploaded as a photo)

If you’re intrigued by our concept, see a clip of series 1 of the show on channel TLC, here that aired Friday 15th July 2016 at 10pm.

For those who are interested in applying, they can get in touch with the team at izzy.davies@rdftelevision.com or call me directly on 0207 013 4546.

Thank you so much,
Izzy

TRACKS - a new musical written by Emma Trow

The show is being performed to help raise money for Barnabus - a homeless charity in Manchester who have been working for 25 tirelessly to help the growing problem in the city.

As the producer of the show I would love to offer you 2 tickets for the price of one, So thats 10 pounds for two tickets. All tickets sales are going directly to Barnabus so the more people we have there the more money raised.
If you do want to take me up on this offer please email with how many tickets you would like.

If you have any issues with the ticket price but would really like to come please email me dougie.c@hotmail.co.uk as we will always be able to sort something out. We’d rather raise a pound for the charity than someone not come because they can’t afford the 5 or 10.

Wednesday @ 19:30 - Thursday @ 19:30 - Friday @ 19:30 - Saturday @ 14:30 and 19:30

The Bard meets Brexit - Shakespeare in Teignmouth and Exeter


I'm Joseph, a theatre producer for Untold Theatre (untoldtheatre.co.uk). Earlier this year I was moved by the ever growing numbers of refugees fleeing conflict, stranded between Europe's borders.

My team and I felt we had to use our work as a way of addressing this issue. This Autumn we are touring a production of The Tempest across the country, including two performances in Teignmouth and Exeter.

It will be a little special because we'll be setting the play in the year 2020, offering an imagined future after Brexit and the Migration Crisis.

We'll be using innovative digital projections too and hope that Shakespeare's universal appeal can emphasise the incredibly human aspects behind the reported statistics.

Finally, we'll be using the production to raise funds for Doctors without Borders, who provide vital medical aid to those fleeing conflict.

I'm writing because, like myself, members of the Southwest Dramatic Societies might well have an interest in this kind of theatre - especially during the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

Because of your commitment to arts in the local community, I'm able to offer a group booking discount to groups of 10 or more.

Dates and locations of our Devon performances are included below. More information about the show (and a video trailer) is available here.

All my best,

Casting for upcoming student short film

My name is Daniel Ellis and I’m a sixth form student at South Bromsgrove High, Worcestershire. This winter, I and a group of my friends will be filming a new short film, ‘Death at Christmas.’ For the short we will require nine cast members, however as a community project run by a small team of young people, we are on a very limited budget therefore we can’t financially contribute towards the cost of cast, other than possibly travel expenses. Therefore we would be looking for some volunteer actors who may be willing to work for free.

Filming will be near Bromsgrove, North Worcestershire and filming will be midweek evenings, from approx. 5:00pm-9:30pm, in November and December 2016. Would anyone consider, or be interested in helping out with our project?

We have previously created many other short films, our latest, 'SBH Racing - The Inside Story', starred Secretary of State Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, and has recently won the under 19s category in the parliament run film festival, 'Film The House'.

Although we are not able to offer cast payment, other than maybe travel expenses, we hope that all our cast members will still see that this opportunity has many benefits and incentives. Not only will it expand their acting CVs, but it will give them the opportunity to be involved in a short film which will be shown at film festivals in both the UK and worldwide, whilst supporting a local, student project.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Daniel Ellis
Producer of ‘Death at Christmas’

Play required to help train Social Workers dealing with dementia.

We are working on a new project at Essex County Council. What we would like is for someone to perform a short play around dealing with people with dementia. This play would need to be recorded, to enable us to reuse it, to incorporate in the training of social workers.

We are at the beginning stage of the Project, so we are investigating options and groups/organisations who may be able to complete the task.

The sooner we get this up and running the better, so time scales are quite grey, we would like it done by October, but I am aware this is a very tight time scale, we are happy to discuss this issue.

If anyone is interested please email kristina.eves@essex.gov.uk and we can arrange further information to be made available.

The Island with Bear Grylls

Shine TV, is looking for applicants for the new series of Channel 4’s The Island with Bear Grylls.
We would like to encourage people of all ages to apply.

We are looking for fit and able people of all ages (18+) each with their unique skillset, from a variety of backgrounds and professions who are confident in their ability to thrive but they do not need any experience in adventure or survival pursuits to participate. We will cover reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings for everyone who participates.

‘This is Lord of the flies meets Bear Grylls meets Darwin’s survival of the fittest. Man has moved further and further from his hunter-gatherer origins. We take food, shelter, warmth for granted; we barely have to expend any time and energy to get them. I want to find out what happens when you strip people of all the comforts of modern life’ Bear Grylls

Help wanted for FDAMH’s arts and media programme

My name is Emily Stewart and I am the Arts and activities coordinator for Falkirk’s Mental Health Association. I run a drama group as part of these activities but am looking for support from the drama community to take on some of the bigger roles in order to take some of the pressure off our group.

The drama group is something that has run as part of FDAMH’s arts and media programme for the last few years and has proved very popular with service users and audiences across the Forth valley. A couple of years ago the media group wrote a play called “Being Frank” which won a see me award. I will be honest the play is hard hitting and poignant and not to be undertaken if the participants feel it is too much. The play is about Frank who suicides in the first act – he is taken away in the ambulance and survives. The play goes through his journey to recovery – getting a CPN - and comments on what recovery is to individual people. It also makes comment on his relationships and how the suicide affects them, the discrimination he faces and the new friends he makes as well as how organisations like FDAMH can support and enable recovery.
We have used this play as a training tool in the past and performed to Stirling university and Forth Valley college. The feedback from the audiences was extremely positive with people becoming more aware of what mental health is and how ill mental health can affect anyone.

The group will begin on the 29th of August at the sensory centre 2-4 pm. I have attached the script so you can have a read. Although a difficult play to act out there will be support on hand, lots of people to take over difficult roles is the part gets too much for someone and many who have got a lot out of performing in front of an audience and have said it has boosted their confidence phenomenally.

Best,

Emily Stewart | Drop-In Project Group Worker

Film Actors wanted

We are a group of student filmmakers looking to produce films to enter in to festivals. We have a short film ’Static' written and ready to go, we would need two male actors to take part.

'Static' centres around Dean and his desire to break his lazy habits and find a job, but there are dark forces in Deans home that do not want to see him achieve anything in life. 'Static' follows Dean and the lengths he will have to go to break free from his own home.

‘Dean’ would be a male aged between 24 - 35, we would need to be able to scruff up the successful candidates appearance to suit the role.

'The Presenter'. The successful candidate for this role would be a man between the ages of 44-65, preferentially able to do an American accent, but not essential. The role requires an eccentric and surreal adaptation of the stereotypical American game show host, ability to deliver comic lines with clear sinister motives, with tones of condescension. The successful actor would need to be comfortable in a multi-cam studio set up.

This role will be expenses only but will be an excellent addition to any show reel as it is a leading and essential role, with the addition of multi-cam work.

All expenses covered and copy of the film for showreel purposes
Thanks,
Joe Hewitt

Wanted Actors
We need 2 male actors who are in their 40-50’s to perform in our October Show 19th October – 22nd October 2016



The Reunion www.petergordonplays.com

Cast: 4 male, 4 female.
Set: Single interior. Back room of a pub, present day.

It's good to meet up with old friends ... or perhaps not!

When Nigel arranges a reunion in the back room of a pub he is optimistic of a good turnout. Whilst the numbers disappoint him, he soon has his hands full when a motley middle-aged threesome turn up, bringing with them assorted wives, girlfriends, prejudices, and resentments that have simmered for the last twenty five years. As the evening unfolds, the men are forced to reassess their old alliances and reflect on their lives, whereas the women are increasingly struck by the futility of the whole exercise!

Comedy and confusion combine in this hilarious but poignant story of 'small people' in a 'big world'.

We are still looking for 2 men for The Reunion both roughly late 40s early 50s.

Nigel - a bit of a 'fuddy duddy'. The slightly pompous organiser of this reunion of 'mates'. He is a university lecturer originally from the North, but he has tried to lose his accent since he went to college as he thinks himself higher than he is.

Thomo - wears an open neck shirt with a medallion. The best way to desribe him is a cross between Del Boy and Boyce from Only Fools and Horses. He has brought his secretary (mistress) to the reunion but unfortunatley his wife turns up! Sees himself as the Alpha male of the group and is constantly trying to assert authority. He runs a run down car and parts garage.

We can play slightly with the ages if needed. This reunion takes place 25 years after the men last saw each other.

If you are interested please contact us urgently on this email address.

Film Extra's wanted

My name is Sophie and I am contacting you from the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield.
We are currently in the production stages of our graduation film "BLUEBIRD" which is directed by the award-winning emerging Director Meg Campbell and produced by Caroline Bartleet.
BLUEBIRD is about a woman called Jenny (41) whose eccentric and unpredictable behaviour causes conflict within her family, leading her to question whether she is a good enough mother. The film is an exploration of acceptance and calls into question whether love is more important than stability.
We are looking for extras for a scene that is set in a Concert Hall at Davanies School in Beaconsfield.
We are looking for male and female of all ages and I wondered whether any members would be interested in taking part?

The date is set for Monday 11th of July, but have yet to finalize a time. The shoot would be taking place between 1pm and 6pm.

Some time this week we will be sending out an email with the exact times,dress code and information on how to get to the school and where to park. As of the moment the dress code is smart and to avoid the colour blue.
Unfortunately we can’t provide much in the way of expenses but any volunteers will have the opportunity to see what it’s like to be on set.

Thanks very much in advance.

Best wishes
Sophie Arnold
