Carnival Dreams the Musical

Carnival Dreams the Musical
Click on poster to see full size

Special Offer for Groups of 10 or more to see World Premiere of Carnival Dreams the Musical
I am currently working on a new musical Carnival Dreams, which will be presented at the Ashcroft Theatre, Croydon from Wednesday 3rd to Saturday 6th February [Evenings at 7.30pm | Thursday & Saturday Matinees at 2.30pm].
Norman Mark was commissioned to write this musical several years ago when he lived in Madeira, as a way of highlighting the problems and prejudices which are inherent within communities. Sadly, due to logistics, it was not possible to mount the production but it has always been Norman’s dream to bring the show to life. As a professional Norman is passionate about and specialises in equality, diversity and social care and his musical explores and tackles these important topics, whilst entertaining at the same time. Carnival Dreams will make you laugh and cry, it will inspire and hopefully it will encourage everyone to embrace and understand the beauty of diversity within our lives.
Carnival Dreams the Musical is set in Argentina where a small community dance group are preparing for the annual Samba competition. Whilst fighting his own inner demons, former dance champion Andre tries to instill a passion to succeed but senior dance tutor Jose's bullying and bigotry does little to raise morale. Jose is consumed with contempt for the people who surround him. A bible-quoting misogynist who physically and mentally abuses his wife Teresa, Jose delights in trying to humiliate the flamboyantly camp drag queen Carmen and is determined to quash the growing romance between his daughter Cristina and Duarte, whose only crime is the colour of his skin. When the embittered Maria persuades Teresa and Cristina to escape Jose's clutches, a heart-wrenching tragedy unfolds. Can the dance troupe survive and win against this adversity?
Norman Mark has written the book and lyrics with hauntingly original music by Robert Orledge. The show stars Cheryl Fergison and is directed by Andrew Lynford, both of who became household names, due to their appearances in EastEnders.
Ticket prices normally range from £20.50 to £29.50. However, we feel this show is ideal for groups who love and want to support new musical theatre and therefore have a very special offer for groups of 10 or more of only £10.00 per ticket (cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or against tickets already purchased and is subject to availability). Please note this dark and provocative musical is not suitable for children under 12.

New dating show for Channel 4

Hi there,

I am a Casting Assistant Producer working on a brand new dating show for Channel 4 and currently looking for contributors, so would be extremely grateful if you could circulate this to members of your society and help spread the word.

Studio Lambert is an independent television production company based in London. We have produced a number of observational documentary and factual entertainment series including Undercover Boss, Tattoo Fixers and the BAFTA award winning series Gogglebox.

After a successful pilot, we are now making a series for Channel 4 that explores the science of attraction. We are looking for people of all ages, ethnicities, sizes, gender and sexual orientation to take part. We want to examine the ritual of dating to see whether the trappings of modern life (clothes, push up bras, jewellery, money etc.) have clouded our ability to select an ideal mate. What would we use to determine attractiveness if all these distractions are stripped away and we could see potential partners without their clothes?

We are looking for single people who are engaging, fun and who would talk honestly about their opinions of attraction, class, style, personality and the human body, and be open to people commenting about their own personality and physical attributes.

We hope that this would prove to be a fun, informative and valuable experience for the participating people and an opportunity for them to potentially meet a life partner.

If this sounds like something which may be of interest to you, please get back to me with a little bit about yourself, a recent photo and a contact number, alongside your age, sexual orientation (straight/ gay/ bi etc.) and where in the UK you’re based.

I hope to hear from you soon!

Best wishes,

Victoria

The Bedford Passion Play - Easter 2016
Bedford Passion Play


www.bedfordpassionplay.com

The Bedford Passion Play will return to Bedford on Saturday 26th March 2016 Starting at Church Square. A Bedford Community event, all welcome
It has been three decades since a full scale, open air production of the Passion Play has been performed on the streets of Bedford Town Centre, however in 2016 that is set to change.
With the support of the Passion Play Trust and in association with Hope in Bedfordshire, Ministers from various churches in Bedford have been working with local Theatre Company, No Loss Productions, to bring the play back to Bedford next Easter.

A new script is being written which will retell the story of Jesus' trials, crucifixion and resurrection in a fresh and direct way. The play will have a cast of hundreds both in acting roles as well as behind the scenes so it is a huge undertaking.

The play itself will be performed on Saturday 26th March 2016.

Bold New Channel 4 Show - Undressed*
Click on photo to see full size.
Hi There

I hope all is well and you are OK? My name is Frankie Mensah and I am the Producer of a brand new Channel 4 show exploring the relationships we have with our possessions.

What would happen if we were stripped back to basics? Would we find out what matters most?

Do our most treasured possessions improve our lives, or does the drive to consume make us less happy?

I am looking for contributors who might be interested in undertaking this life changing experience and was wondering if you could put something on your intranet and soci al media platforms.

I would really appreciate your assistance!

Kind Regards

Frankie Mensah frankie.mensah@princesstv.com

The actors I require will be a young male (18-23), an older male (23-28) and a female (11-15)

Many thanks,
