Paid acting support at Anglia Ruskin University

Dear actors,

I am a Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University. We would like to recruit actors to support us in our assessment process for the social work degree at Anglia Ruskin University. We have been using actors to support us very successfully over the last year. We are currently looking to recruit more actors to support us in our course assessments.

Actors have supported us in the preparation for practice module for student social workers. The assessments occur at several points throughout the year. The purpose is to ensure that new social work students are ready to go out on their practice placement to begin work with service users and carers. The assessment simulates a conversation between a social worker and a service user / carer. The actor is given a scenario and role plays either a service user (a person who is a social services or health client) or a family carer representing their relative. The student is assessed on their communication skills and how they interact with the ‘client’ (the actor).

We are holding a briefing day to induct and recruit some additional actors to support us in this work. In this session, you will have the opportunity to role play one of the scenarios. We have two possible dates to hold the briefing session and we will select the date that most people can attend.

Wednesday 22nd October 2014 2 pm – 4 pm Or Friday 24th October 2014 1pm – 3 pm.

The session will take place on the Cambridge campus Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge, CB1 1PT. I will confirm the room on confirmation of your attendance. Unfortunately there is no parking on site. You will be offered the opportunity to undertake assessments on the Cambridge, Peterborough and Chelmsford campuses. You will be paid travelling expenses of 45p per mile or public transport rates, and £60 per morning session that you are involved in the assessment process. The morning session typically runs from 9 am – 1:30 pm. You will not be paid for the induction session.

If you would like to become involved, we will ask you to register with the Employment Bureau at Anglia Ruskin University. They will manage the payment and employment processes. They will check your eligibility to work in the UK and manage the employment checks. You will need to register on-line with the Employment Bureau and they will explain the process to you.

For further information their contact details are below.

Call: 0845 196 3617 (Chelmsford) or 0845 196 2564 (Cambridge)
Click: employment-bureau@anglia.ac.uk
Visit: www.anglia.ac.uk/employability/eb

If you are interested in becoming involved, please email me with your preferred date for the induction session and your contact details. I will confirm the induction date and confirm room numbers with you. If there is enough demand, we can also hold a briefing session on the Chelmsford campus. Please indicate if this is your first choice.
I look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes

Assistant Job Vacancies

I am writing to enquire as to whether any Group has vacancies for teenagers wishing to assist with Drama and the performing sector with a local Drama group or organisation.
Although I am looking for a Saturday job, it would be an incredible opportunity for me to find a position within performing arts as I have a distinct passion for performing and I would love more experience in the field because I am going to venture into singing and acting more and more as I progress through my education. I have been in many school productions whilst also having performed in the Beck Theatre in Hayes, and I achieved an A in my Drama GCSE. I also was a part of the West End Kids group for a while last year and have attended many Drama groups throughout my school years.
I am currently in sixth form taking Drama, Music Technology, Media and Spanish however I am looking for a job in the performing sector for the weekends.
I would be very grateful to hear from you.
Kind Regards,
Natalie Kyriacou

BBC1 24 hours in the past - Calling Nottingham Volunteers

My name is Bella and I work for Darlow Smithson Productions - a television company who make factual programmes including the documentary Richard III: King in the Car Park, and the film Stephen Hawking's Universe.
We are currently making an exciting, new living history documentary series for BBC One which aims to reveal what life was like for the working people of the 19th century. As part of this four-part series, six celebrities will leave their busy modern lives for one week, and experience 24 hours in some of the hardest working conditions of the Victorian age.
The celebrities will undertake the endurance challenge of a lifetime and discover the emotional truth behind the lives that built Britain. In each workplace location, we will transform it, using a well-known historical designer to accurately represent what daily life was like for our workers, and take our workplaces back in time.
Our final episode is called ‘Workhouse’. We are transforming an area in Nottingham using a well-known historical drama set designer to accurately represent what daily life was like for our workers, and take our workplaces back in time.
To help bring our settings to life we are wishing to need many volunteers. You do not have to be a trained actor, rather people who have a passion for the period and would enjoy immersing themselves in the making of a ground-breaking portrayal of working class life in Victorian Britain.
Furthermore, we are casting key contributors in positions of authority, who – in the modern day - have jobs similar to those we’ll be exploring in the Victorian age. If you have had experience of running your own company, being a teacher, Headmaster/Mistress or any other managerial jobs and would enjoy the part of being Master or Matron of the Workhouse then we would love to hear from you!
We will be rehearsing on Thursday 9th October and filming would take place from the afternoon of the 10th October and Saturday 11th October.
If the programme is of interest then please email casting@dsp.tv at your earliest convenience.

Performers required for a Cancer Research UK Event

A plea for a Cancer Research UK event we are having in Plymouth on Saturday 11 October, for which we need several actors (as many as possible) who can help us create an amazing experience for our supporters. The details are below.

The event is March On Cancer, an event for all age groups, and it will be taking place in 15 cities simultaneously at 7.30pm on Saturday 11th October. It is a brand new event for Cancer Research UK, and is aimed at raising awareness, raising funds and galvanising local support for our national Stand Up To Cancer campaign*.

Starting at The Hoe, the March goes from the Promenade along the iconic seafront, taking in local landmarks around the surrounding area, before heading back towards the Hoe with the distinctive red and white striped lighthouse in the background.

The march will last about 45 minutes, and will be an experiential journey for the 1500 marchers taking part. They will march at a controlled pace and every 5-10 minutes there will be some experience / activity aimed at inspiring a different emotion / response. The first part of the march will be reflective – there will be a choir and cancer survivors and their families, sharing their stories; this will move to defiance – cancer is a dreadful disease, but together we can make a difference by raising funds which will bring treatments to patients faster. Here we will have a zone where people actually “march on cancer” (pavement stickers), a flashmob and chanting. Then we move onto celebratory / proud / empowered as we realise that through marching we have affected change, and the return to the venue might be the end of our march, but the start of a journey.

We’re after a team of people (actors) who can work with us to help create this experience. We can’t just rely on supporters to have the confidence to start chanting, or stomping or cheering or dancing in the right places; we need people “planted” within the marchers to lead by example, and who understand impact, audience participation, and who are confident and comfortable with using their voices and getting into the spirit of the occasion.

This is a really exciting new venture for us and a great opportunity to unite communities, create memorable experiences and make a very real difference to people suffering from cancer.

I’m including some additional background information about Stand Up To Cancer and March On Cancer below – do have a read.

Stand Up To Cancer
Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK have joined forces to bring Stand Up To Cancer to the UK. We’re calling on the biggest names in film, TV and music to mobilise the British public to take a stand and accelerate the fight against cancer. Stand Up To Cancer is a rallying cry that brings the UK together to accelerate progress in cancer research and bring breakthroughs from labs to patients. It’s not technology or knowledge that’s holding us back in our fight –it’s funding. We need everyone to raise funds right now and give cancer research the firepower to develop new treatments more quickly and save more lives. Stand Up To Cancer is a decisive strike at the core of cancer.

US Heritage
Stand Up To Cancer was founded by the Entertainment Industry Foundation in 2008. It is an established initiative in the US, which utilises the entertainment industry to create awareness and build public support for cancer research. In six years Stand Up To Cancer already has a staggering $260m pledged to ground-breaking cancer research, speeding breakthroughs from the lab to patients.

Stand Up To Cancer UK in 2012
Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK joined forces in 2012 to deliver the most successful charity fundraiser on UK commercial TV in its first year – ever. It raised over £8million and brought the fight against cancer to the forefront of the Nation’s mind. Exceptional talent and entertainment from across the world helped raise money that has been spent funding twelve clinical trials which aim to improve survival rates and bring breakthroughs in labs to patients sooner. This year we’re back on air – and the campaign will be bigger and better than ever before. It’s a really exciting and powerful campaign – check out the trailer that was used in 2012 - Stand Up To Cancer UK | Channel 4

March on Cancer™
As part of the 2014 Stand Up To Cancer campaign, we are bringing March On Cancer™ to the UK for the first time. On 11th October, thousands of people will gather in city centres across the UK to Stand Up To Cancer as one united force in 15 simultaneous events. An empowered collective, Marchers will galvanise communities in the fight against cancer and will give cancer research the injection of cash it needs to bring treatments to patients faster, saving more lives.

Quince Players


Quince Players - Press Release
Monday 8th September
Poirot plays Marple!
For the first time in history Miss Marple will be played by a chap! Indeed the same chap who played Hercule Poirot in the Quince Players production of Black Coffee by Agatha Christie back in September 2012. Huw Mordecai was awarded Best Actor (runner up) at the National Operatic & Dramatic Association Awards for his portrayal of the Belgian sleuth following the hugely successful QP show two years ago.
A Murder is Announced is another Christie mystery, familiar to many, but director Ken Long’s unique choice of a man playing this very familiar character is an ingenious idea. Huw says “learning to knit was one of the challenges I faced, but learning to sit with ones knees together was a much greater challenge, I even resorted to tying my knees together for a couple of rehearsals!”. Allison Sharpe, who is playing Miss Blacklock says “once on stage I completely forget Marple is in fact a chap, he’s very convincing even without a wig!”
The September production by the Quince Players is always a great way to transition from outdoor sunny evenings to more autumnal pursuits and this year the cast of A Murder is Announced will not fail to delight audiences as this classic mystery unfolds.
Show Dates 11th -13th & 18th-20th September (Matinee on 20th)
Box Office open at Sapphire Estates from 16th August

Greater Manchester Drama Federation


Barry Swithenbank RIP
It is with much sadness that we have to announce the death of Barry Swithenbank, Altrincham Little Theatre's Stage Director. Barry was well known throughout the world of amateur theatre in the Greater Manchester area.
He was responsible for designing and lighting many spectacular sets for Altrincham Little Theatre's plays. These sets regularly drew gasps of delight from the audience, followed by a spontaneous round of applause. His technical knowledge was second to none and Altrincham tell us that many was the time he managed to solve an apparently insurmountable problem. He was always generous with his help and advice and there will be many in the area who have learned much from him.
Barry will be greatly missed and our thoughts and condolences go out to Barry's family, his friends and all at Altrincham Little Theatre.

BUPA ADVERT

Hello, I am casting for Hannah Simons casting, and we are working on an online and campaign advert for BUPA :

Something like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=dARsDqZT0KA

A brief from our director is:
• A variety of real people that represent a number of different nations that Bupa operates within.

• Ideally UK, Spain, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, India, Thailand and the USA.
• A diverse range of age, ethnicity, sexuality, gender and disabilities. From children to old age.
• Ideally each person would be happy for us to visit them in a place that they feel represents them as a person - their home, work or somewhere else that they connect with (mosque etc).
• They have to say one line about their 'purpose'. Their goal in life or why they are here and what they want to achieve (i.e. a kid winning sports day to a mother providing for their child etc).
• We would ideally like them to just really say a couple of lines and be open to the concept like the reference video.
• Looking for 'REAL' people to film for a Bupa conference film (it will then live online on their site).
• We would go to their house for roughly 1 hour, get them to say their line, film them a bit in their location and head off to the next person.
What we need today or tomorrow:
A short clip (mobile recording) saying who you are and one line of what your purpose in life is...
Two photos of your chosen locations (living room/ park/ outside mosque ... etc).
Filming will take place on either 30th/1st or 2nd of september.
Anyone you know get them to email me the same
Thanks

The South Devon Players


C/o Miss Laura Jury, BA(hons) MEd (secretary), 7 Speedwell Close, Brixham, Devon TQ5 9NJ, England. Tel 07855 090589 after 5pm. southdevonplayers@gmail.com
Press release – Brixham theatre company announce ambitious new panto and film auditions
The South Devon Players return from a quieter summer, with all new projects in the bay, for stage and film, and are putting out a call for new people to join the projects. Whether acting for stage or film is your ambition, or whether you would like to join in a technical capacity, we are planning on two big projects to start through the autumn, both being cast in September 2014. Both projects are being written by local writers, and directed by local directors,

Zorro: The Panto
The stage show? Giving Zorro the panto treatment, in an all-new pantomime, with a difference. Combining traditional elements of pantomime, with elements of Vegas-type shows, this show is planned to be a high-tech, creative, glamorous, hilarious family show. Will the shy and bumbling Diego de La Vega outwit the evil Capistrano, and will we discover the identity of the dashing outlaw Zorro?
All roles are open for casting, we are looking for everyone from lead performers, who must be willing to sing and dance as well, through to chorus members, and require a cast aged from 8 though to the skys the limit.
We are holding open auditions on at 1pm on Sunday September 14th at our regular rehearsal venue of Chestnut Community Centre, Poplar Close, Brixham. People hoping for a principal role, are asked to contact us beforehand for set audition pieces for those roles. This show is to be directed by Laura Jury and Hayley Rushton.
Les Miserables: The Web-film Series
The film – well the film series? Following the success and London sponsorship of our 2013 production of Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean, several of our members have decided to collaborate on an crowdfunded internet film series based on the unabridged novel by Victor Hugo, in episodes of an hour each to be released for worldwide online viewing.
This is a long term project but we intend to begin filming for Episode 1: Favrolles, telling of how the main character Jean Valjean ended up in prison, by the end of 2014, and again, are seeking a full cast for this production, with most roles open for casting, including for characters not usually seen in stage or feature film dramatisations where the storyline is significantly condensed.
Again, we ask anyone who interested in performing in the show, to attend our open auditions, being held on Saturday September 27th, 11am – 6pm at Jasmyn House community rooms, on Midvale Road, Paignton.

For both productions we would also like to clarify that anyone is welcome to come and audition, they do not need to be pre-existing members, and we would also be delighted to hear from anyone interested in getting involved behind the scenes in a logistical or technical role.
This film is being directed by Ric Vince and Edward Stewart, with Laura Jury as producer.

ABOUT THE SOUTH DEVON PLAYERS THEATRE COMPANY
We are an award winning, family-friendly, completely non-profit, community-based theatre company, from the beautiful fishing port of Brixham; Devon (in South West England).
We perform theatre shows in Brixham, around Torbay, and South Devon, based on historical events, classical stories and mythology.
We were founded in late 2005 by two Brixham performers, and performed our first production in the summer of 2006. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, and are now growing rapidly, with awards won and a rapidly increasing member base, an appearance on a national BBC 1 TV programme, and sponsorship from London for our recent non-musical adaptation of Les Miserables.
New members are always welcomed regardless of their background, experience, beliefs or nationality; we provide an exciting hobby, performance experience and education, and a friendly, safe, inclusive atmosphere. We are not a "childrens" group, and in general require our members to be aged 16 (to 116!!!!), however younger performers may be accepted for some shows, with the strict requirement that they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.

Stewarton Drama Group

NEW MEMBERS OPEN EVENING
Stewarton Drama Group are holding a NEW MEMBERS OPEN EVENING this week on Wednesday 13th August at 7.30pm in our premises in the Scout Building Corsehillbank Street, Stewarton. A poster for the event is attached.
If you, or anyone you know over the age of 18, might be looking for a new hobby and would be interested in finding out more, please just drop in for a chat on Wednesday night. And remember it's not just potential actors and actresses we're recruiting. We have a number of members who prefer not to appear on stage, and instead make a great contribution to our club by making props and costumes; designing, building and painting our sets; designing and operating our lighting and sound, or simply helping out backstage or front of house at our shows. If you're looking for a new hobby.....it could be for YOU !
Also - tickets for our October production of John Godber's 'Bouncers', directed by Nancy McPherson, which we will perform in the Stewarton Area Centre on Thu 9th, Fri 10th and Sat 11th October are now on sale every day at Stewarton Library. You can also reserve your seats by emailing stewartondramagroup@hotmail.co.uk

OPEN EVENING PRESS RELEASE:
STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 42nd season on Wednesday 13th August 2014 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 2013-14 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 ‘Calendar Girls’ which brought audiences to their feet in standing ovations in October. That was followed by the group’s annual Pantomime ‘Aladdin’ which played to packed houses in December. Finally, the season closed on a high with two performances of ‘An Evening of Comedy and Drama’ in May featuring 3 short one-act plays, including a performance of ‘LittleBro Morning and BigSis Afternoon’ by guest performers The Dunlop Youth Players, plus two plays by SDG - ‘The Red Balloon’ and ‘Interior Designs’.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet is now packed with 9 new pieces of silverware thanks to the success in national drama festivals across Scotland of their full-length play from last season ‘Calendar Girls’,which won the 2013 West of Scotland Full-Length Play Festival, and their one-act play ‘Waste Management’ which won the 2014 West of Scotland Final of the One-Act Play Festival, going on to be placed 2nd overall in Scotland out of the 125 plays that originally entered the competition.
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 13th 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 which kicks off with John Godber's celebrated play 'BOUNCERS' which SDG will perform between Thu 9th and Sat 11th October 2014 in the Stewarton Area Centre.
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 13th August in our Premises.
“If you’d like more information please email us at stewartondramagroup@hotmail.co.uk or log onto our website www.stewarton-drama-group.co.uk or follow us on Facebook page www.facebook.com/stewartondramagroup by clicking the ‘LIKE’ button at the top of the page to receive all our news updates.”

Dreadnought

I am looking for a group of primary aged children who may be willing to take part in a workshop and have photos taken for our publicity material. I wondered if any of your drama groups might have young people between the ages of about 8 and 12 who would be willing to take part in this? I wouldn’t need a huge number but just a few who may be available during the Summer holidays to help out with this.
I wondered if you might be able to circulate this amongst your drama groups who meet in the mid and west of Cornwall?

We're looking to gather an audience of around 300 people to come along and discuss the issue.
I was wondering if you may be interested in attending the programme, of passing on the details to friends and colleagues who may wish to come along and whether you could display the poster for as many people as possible to see - that'd be brilliant.
Also, if you are able to publish it on social media or through any mailing lists and internal websites, that'd be great - we're trying to get it in front of as many people as possible.
If you’re interested, email me back with your name and contact telephone number.
The audience will be balanced between Yes/No voters on the day.
Thanks for your help – do get in touch if you’ve any other questions,
