Derek Slater RIP

Derek Slater

Derek Slater 1925 - 2019

It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Derek Slater who, with his wife Pam, had been a member of CHADS Theatre Cheadle Hulme for over 30 years. He was 93 years old but, ’til the end, retained a formidable memory - not least, about the theatre and his involvement in it. Pam and he directed and acted in numerous plays with us.

As a student at Manchester University, he directed plays by Shakespeare and Shaw as well as acting in Ibsen and Noel Coward. He went on to teach drama for many years and became the principal lecturer in the drama department at MMU. He became a tutor for the Open University from its inception to his retirement at the age of 75. He spent much of his life conveying his love of literature and theatre to students of all ages. He travelled throughout the UK whilst running courses and adjudicating drama competitions as well as assessing the work of students from other colleges.

In 1947, he had spent a year in post-war Prague editing an international student newspaper and, in the ’60s, did three stints working for the British Council training teachers in Cameroon and Nigeria. A local lad, born in Stalybridge, he always returned to this part of the world after his travels.

On top of his professional work, Derek became closely involved in amateur theatre and there will be many GMDF members (Wilmslow Green Room, Players Theatre, Heald Green Theatre Club and Partington Little Theatre amongst others) who benefitted from his very considerable experience both as a director and an adjudicator. His contribution in this regard was recognised when he was awarded the Laurence Roberts Trophy by the GMDF in 2012.

His knowledge was encyclopaedic and, being directed by him, meant that every rehearsal left his cast better informed and better equipped to tackle the task before them. It was always entertaining (and, indeed, a privilege) to hear him speak - his clarity of thought and wit always shone through. Latterly, he gave talks to a variety of social groups, such as Probus, WI and U3A, on topics ranging from theatre censorship to Arthur Miller via J.B.Priestley and Charles Dickens.
These talks were much in demand and invitations to speak were constant - a testimony to his ability to hold an audience.

Over many years, he - and his productions - won numerous awards. He remained involved in organising and directing literary events well into his 90s having directed his last full length play in 2016. As he once said, “..there is something hypnotic about a play script - the moment you start to read it, you begin to imagine what it would take to turn the dry text into live performance.” He could never resist such a challenge.

He loved to socialise with fellow theatre addicts, and had a fund of stories, anecdotes and jokes which he was only too happy to share if encouraged! His contribution to amateur theatre was huge. He will be greatly missed by many.

Derek’s funeral will take place in the Rowan Chapel of Stockport Crematorium on Thursday April 18th at 10.45 with a reception afterwards at CHADS Theatre on Mellor Road Cheadle Hulme.

Actor/Actress Needed for Short Film

I am Tamas Somogyi, a second year VFX student at MMU. I am working on my final year project, a CGI short film, and am currently seeking for an actress and actor to provide the motion capture. I am mostly interested in young actors who are happy to expand their skill set and gain a lot of experience in working on a sci-fi short. The film will be approximately 15 minutes long, 10 of which includes the actors, and it will filmed during this summer.

Hello Actors of Manchester!
You have the unique opportunity to star in a CGI sci-fi short film, providing motion and performance capture to digital characters. This is an excellent opportunity to broaden your skill set and add to your portfolio!
I am looking for a female and male lead, who are passionate about acting and are willing to put the time and effort into this 10 minute long short film.

As part of the job you will:
- Act in a motion capture suit
- Learn the dialogue in alien language (not too difficult and you will be supported)
- Preform a choreographed fight scene (possibly stuntmen will be used instead)
- Learn the script, prepare and attend practice meetings on a weekly basis

Actress:
You will bring an alien character to life (think of Neytiri from Avatar), who is lively, strong and charismatic. You will learn 28 sentences in a fictional language, speaking it as if it were your native tongue.

Actor:
You will provide motion capture for an A.I. robot (think of Sonny from I, Robot), an emotionless, calculating machine (not evil), doing what it was programmed to do (making contact with alien species). You will also offer narration in English and learn 25 sentences in a fictional language.
It is vital for you to be able to spare the time from May until August to learn and practice on a regular basis as the project will heavily rely on your performance. Please only apply if you are certain that you will have the time.
The short film is part of a VFX student’s dissertation, thus it is a non-profit one. However, you will leave with a very fun experience and an exceptional addition to your resume, giving you a great advantage.
Casting will start on the 15th April, make sure you send your application by then. You will be informed about the result by the 15th May. A complete brief of the story and production plan will be given during casting, nonetheless, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Send your application to tamaswright3d@gmail.com with a brief introduction (3-4 sentences) and why you would like to take part. Best of luck!

Kind Regards,
Tamas Wright

Casting for Short Film

Hello,

My name is George Norgate, I'm a screenwriter and director from Londo I am shooting a comedy short film on a beautiful farm on the out skirts of Polegate.

I'm looking to cast a male actor between 35-45 years of age to play a Conservative farmer and I was wondering if there of the local amateur dramatic groups may have actors interested.

This is a small film so unfortunately we haven't got the funds to pay, however food and transport will be covered.

We obviously have the option to have actors from London but I thought it would be a great opportunity to have a local actor involved.

Thank you for your time,

All the best,

Dumbo's Circus Event

We are holding a circus event at Cineworld St Neots to launch the new live action remake of Dumbo. I am looking for someone who can juggle and someone who can make balloon models to partake on the 30th and 31st of March, between 9.30am and 11.30am both days.

Now I am unable to pay the performer/s for the event but they will have food and drink supplied and gifted two cinema tickets each for each day they work.

If anybody is willing to do the above, please let me know asap.

My other question is whether anyone has any clown / circus themed costumes we could borrow for the team of 5 we have running the event?

As well as the costumes I am desperately on the hunt for some white or red or red and white stripped curtains/ sheets to act as a backdrop against the walls to create the illusion of being inside a tent. Does anyone have anything I could use for this?

If you can help with any the above, please let me know asap.

He attempts to find a culture that he can subscribe to without being influenced by his parents beliefs. We will be shooting in Bournemouth. The roles are unpaid however we will be able to cover the costs of transport, accommodation, and food throughout the filming period. The shoot dates are the 15/16/17th April 2019.

So, the idea behind BROS TC ACADEMY is to offer to all members, both active and resting, the chance to hone your stage (and backstage) skills and learn some new ones too; to give you confidence and improve your knowledge and stagecraft, make our shows even better than before and support people into future production and creative roles. The regular workshops will be FREE to members and will cover the three key disciplines: Music, Dancing, Acting. We may run smaller, special interest workshops such as ‘How to be a Producer’, or bring in outside specialists for a one-off workshop such as ‘Musical Improvisation’. These other specialist workshops will be offered on an occasional basis.

The intention is that there will also be some performance opportunities during the course of the year for anyone participating in the BROS TC ACADEMY who would like a chance to show off their new talents!

The committee is keen to encourage new members and welcome back some old ones, so the BROS TC ACADEMY is also open to our Alumni and people from other local societies, colleges and community groups who think they might be interested in finding out more about what we do. Non-members will be asked to pay £5 per session, or can become a member for £20 a year via Direct Debit and come to the sessions FREE of charge. Those unfamiliar to BROS TC can find out about us here: www.brostheatrecompany.org

The BROS TC ACADEMY will operate in two or three weekly blocks of a particular area of performance or production. For example, ‘Songs from Sondheim’, or ‘West End Musical Dance’. We are currently programming ahead for 2019 so if anyone would like to pitch an idea for a workshop they would like to run, or feel they would benefit from, please let us know by contacting chair@brostc.org

So keep an eye on your inboxes and on our social media platforms over the next few days for further news on this new and exciting venture for BROS TC and to book onto our inaugural sessions starting on Wednesday 27th March!

Short Film Opportunity - Harrogate

Hotel Balderdash is a murder mystery short with a horror twist. Based in the historically steeped bar of Hotel Balderdash, this short film focuses on four potentially guilty suspects after the Hotel’s owner, Mr. Balderdash, is murdered. Through a series of flashbacks and an intense standoff, it is finally revealed who the true killer is.

The shoot is based at the Hale’s Bar in Harrogate. This will consist of night shoots throughout March. Transport will be covered along with accommodation if necessary.

Shooting dates: 17th/18th/19th March, 25th/26th/27th March, 31st March/1st April.

In regards to payment, actors will have their travel expenses, accomodation and catering covered, along with copies of the project and an eventual opportunity of profit shares should the festival be successful in future business ventures and film festival cycles

Potsworth Crawley
Gender : Male
Age Range : 20 - 30
Race : Black
Character Desc: Potsworth is a diligent employee of Mr. Balderdash. Worn from years of manual labour under the careless watch of his employer, the once loyal friend now despises his every fiber of being.

We’re looking for an actor that is able to portray Potsworth as a blunt barman who’s diligent hard work has failed to pay off. Despite his dislike to Mr. Balderdash we require an actor with the skills to create both empathy and suspicion in his relationship with the audience.

Lemon Honeypot
Gender : Female
Age Range : 35 - 50
Race : Caucasian
Character Desc : Lemon Honeypot is a beauty of a woman, although her jet set lifestyle has finally began to catch up with her, she still oozes elegance and sophistication’s with a sharp tongue to match. The epitome of Hollywood glamour; Lemon has long golden hair with piercing eyes and a slim build.

We need an actress that is able to mix fun and flirty with someone who possesses an ulterior motive. This is a prominent leading female role, although the actress must hold her own she will also need to work well in an ensemble group and have the freedom and responsibility to make the character their own.

(Hair colour preferences isn’t necessary but actress must have long hair)

Isaac Featherstone
Gender : Male
Age Range : 25 - 35
Race : Caucasian
Character Desc : Isaac Featherstone is a nervous, Woody Allen-type, jittering and edgy. He wears glasses with parted hair on a sweaty forehead. Now a disgraced journalist, Isaac is rarely seen without his typewriter, desperate to find his next big break.

We’re looking for an actor that is able to portray Isaac as awkward and slimey, with the ability to display ambiguity in regards to Isaac’s innocence due to his unpleasant personality.

Mr. Balderdash
Gender : Male
Age Range : 45 - 55
Race : Caucasian
Character Desc : Mr Balderdash is the larger than life owner of the infamous Hotel Balderdash. With business dwindling due to a mysterious killer on the loose, it appears that Mr. Balderdash will stoop to any low level to save his hotel.

Mr. Balderdash is a jolly man that possesses a total lack of disregard for his employees. His murder is the catalyst for a series of stand offs and flashbacks that eventually reveal his true killer.

If anyone is interested please email uglybugproductions@gmail.com and I’ll happily send the script over!

Thanks,
Eleanor Sloan

Casting Call!

Hi,

I am a local playwright based in Congleton searching for several male actors to perform in my latest one-act play Calamus and Cinnamon, the world premiere of which will take place on 9th and 10th May at The Old Saw Mill in Congleton, and I am putting out a casting call to amateur theatre groups in the area.

Set in 1636 in the reign of Charles I, the action revolves around the travails of a female apothecary Afra Southwood in a small English parish. The themes treated in the play are much the same as we encounter today: illicit love, prejudice, greed, immigration, plus an accusation of witchcraft!

The opportunities to give new drama an airing are few and far between, hence the decision to go ahead and put on the play under my own direction in a manageable community venue.

I require one male actor for the apothecary’s brother-in-law and love interest, Benedict Southwood, age 30 to early 40s, and another to play bullying church sideman, Seth Brodie, age 40 upwards. The ages are flexible as long as the actors look and sound right for the part. The running time is one hour.

I can supply a more detailed synopsis, full list of players and a copy of the script, if required. Please contact me for more information on 07929 111 035 or email diane@diane-cook.co.uk. Many thanks for your help.

Best wishes to all

Diane Cook
