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

Little Big Shots is casting talented youngsters

Little Big SHots


Click on poster to go to the direct link to the Wall to Wall applications page

I am casting a new programme for ITV called Little Big Shots.

The programme will showcase and celebrate young talent, from pint-sized piano players to tiny tap dancers or spelling superstars!

The TV show is solely focused on celebrating and showcasing young talent - it is not a competition or game show. Whether individuals, duos or groups of youngsters, the only rule is that your child is between the ages of 3 and 13.

We are looking for skills of all kinds – from traditional dancers, impressionists, brilliant artists, multi-linguists, incredible musicians to having encyclopaedic knowledge of something (e.g. periodic table or even Thomas the Tank Engine)

Our social media links are:

I’m currently working on ‘Let It Shine’ (working title) an exciting new BBC One Saturday night series with Gary Barlow, Co-presented by Graham Norton & Mel Giedroyc. We’re searching for guys who’ll ultimately form a group to perform the songs of Take That in a brand new upcoming stage show. We’re on the hunt for people who can sing, dance and who have great star quality to apply for the show, and I wanted to get in touch and see if you might be able to help us spread the word.

I will be travelling through the Edinburgh area next week (Wednesday 29th – Thursday 30th) and hope to find some great local talent (aged 16+).

We’re NOT after lookalikes but if you think you can sing and move as well as the original members of the group, or know someone who’d be perfect- we’d love to hear from you! No experience is necessary.

If you are interested in meeting the team. Please contact: amy.green01@bbc.co.uk

I am currently building my portfolio and experience and can offer free (subject to conditions) photography.

Locally to the RM19 postcode (within say 10 miles) no charge – although a cup of coffee and a bun wouldn’t go amiss!!

Further afield a nominal charge for travel expenses would be required (as well as the coffee and bun!!)

Images for use on web sites must have credit and a link to my site, copyright with me but reasonable use for production, i.e. individual sales to subject plus of course free use in programmes and publicity material. All published images must have credit and advice to me of where used, preferably with a hard copy, i.e. programme or newspaper.

Unusual Request

Hi there

Apologies for bizarre request in advance!

I am in process of arranging a stag do in Gloucester on Friday the 24th June and would like to arrange for 1 or 2 faux army sergeant majors to match the stag 1.5 miles through town to the pub where we will be based for the evening. The whole episode would take less than 30 minutes and I am happy to pay £75 to any of your aspiring dramatists if they would like to volunteer to provide us with a make believe regimental sergeant major to meet us at the station and then scream and shout at the stag and get him to high knees jog or crawl or march to our first bar.

If anyone might be interested please could you let me know? The train arrives at 1930 so we would be all finished by 2000.

Thanks in advance!

BBC1 Series: Living With the Doctor

BBC1 Series: Living With the Doctor
Click on poster to see full size

My name’s Ellie and I’m a Casting Assistant Producer at Studio Lambert, the BAFTA winning production company behind shows such as Gogglebox, Undercover Boss and Doctor in the House. We are producing a new family health television series for BBC One which will follow our resident GP, Dr Rangan Chatterjee, as he immerses himself in the lives of British families.

We are reaching out to families in which one or more family members are living with ongoing health issues; no matter how minor they may seem. From weight concerns to bad backs, insomnia to fatigue, stress to over doing it with alcohol, our doctor would work with the family for an extended period of time to support them in making positive changes that could potentially make a huge difference to their health and family life.

The average GP appointment in the UK is only 8-10 minutes, so our aim is to see what affect our doctor can have on the health of a family with a more personal, tailored and one on one approach during a series of health visits done in the comfort of their very own home.

If you happen to know anybody who you think might be interested in being considered, we would really appreciate it if you could pass on our details.

We hope that this would prove to be a fun, informative and valuable experience for the participating families that could potentially really change the way they live their lives.

We can be reached on 0203 040 6828 (standard charges apply and we can call you/them straight back to save your phone bills) or alternatively email us at doctor@studiolambert.com.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions at all or you think of anyone who should be considered for the programme.

Many thanks for your help,
Ellie

Banbury Cross Players Photographs courtesy and copyright of Jim Muller Photography with thanks to Hylton at the Moon & Sixpence, Hanwell.

Banbury Cross Players invite you to a different type of “Feast” this July when they present a smorgasbord of performance to satisfy your theatrical appetite.
In a change from the single full length play, BCP’s July production at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury, consists of three one act plays.

Entrée
David Tristram’s “Peas” sees Daisy and Gerry as the first couple trying out a new online dating agency – just how successful has the computer been at matching their interests?

Main
In David Tristram’s “The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca the Goldfish”, Henry and Alice overcome the mundane in their marriage by drifting off into fantasy – which they happily and hysterically share with the audience.

Dessert
Harold Pinter’s “The Dumb Waiter” is a sharp, claustrophobic, urban thriller; a humorous and provocative story of two hit men as they wait in a basement for their next assignment.

Do come and gorge yourself on this theatrical Feast – running from 13-16 July 2016, curtain up 7.45pm.

Tickets available now from The Mill Arts Centre Box Office on 01295 279002 or www.themillartscentre.co.uk.

Congratulations and Thanks

SAMS (Stamford Amateur Musical Society)


stamfordams.wix.com/sams

As Curtis gets used to life in the South Philadelphia penitentiary, Joey, T.J and Pablo start their new business venture selling "sacramental wine", Deloris starts her romance with Eddie, whilst Mother Superior and Monsignor O'Hara receive special recognition from the Pope, all the Nuns from the Queen of Angels Church take sanctuary in their newly formed choir and church discotheque it's time to thank all involved in SAMS production of Sister Act on such a fabulous week.

Thanks to all at Stamford Corn Exchange Theatre for making us feel so welcome, and for all your help with Box Office and ticket sales. Special mention to Sam & Jack for their wonderful work with our lighting effects.

To our Stage Manager, Malcolm Holmes, his Stage Crew, Scenery and Backstage helpers - you ensured all our shows ran smoothly between scenes and that all characters got into their costumes swiftly and without drama.

Our Front of House team, Publicity and Marketing for all their hard work promoting the show and displaying banners, posters throughout Rutland Areas. Huge thanks to Sharon Middleton for coordinating it all, and also to Rob Persani and Rutland Radio for your coverage and interviews. Thanks to Roythorne's Solicitors for your kind sponsorship and to all our advertisers for your support and our patrons for your donations.

Adding visual impact to our wonderful show were all our amazing, funky, groovy and chic costumes. Thanks Jo Henderson for making it happen and for all the behind scenes and endless hours sewing you did.

Massive thanks to everyone in the cast for your dedication and devotion throughout rehearsals. Every scene, and each song was performed to such very high standards - it was evident to see the enjoyment on all your faces and to hear the confidence in every note and with every dance move. Not singling anyone out, as everyone was simply brilliant - but WELL DONE Di Lander for your superb performances and for your scintillating character interpretation of Deloris Van Cartier.

Appreciation and acknowledgements to all on our committee who dedicate their time to ensure SAMS are able to perform each year.

The brilliant orchestra and our Musical Director, Reece Crane, for playing a fantastic backing track throughout every performance - it sounded awesome.

No production is possible without direction. Nicola Sandall you should be justly proud of your achievements. Sister Act was a first class show. Your enthusiasm, dedication and professionalism; guiding us all at rehearsals shone through with each and every performance from our cast. Our audience showed their recognition and appreciation with standing ovations and rave reviews from all that came to see it.

Finally, thank you, our audience. Your continued support provides us the opportunity to produce high quality shows for your entertainment. As your support grows, so too does our ability to produce more professional productions. We look forward to seeing you all again at our next show!

Australian playwright requires male actor from Bristol for Skint Theatre Festival

It's Kieran Carroll here, a playwright from Melbourne, Australia. I've had a short play (12 mins) accepted by the people at the Skint Theatre Festival which is taking place on July 22 and 23 at The Island Venue in Bristol.

My play is called Australia's Oldest Man and it requires a middle-aged to older male actor. It's a comic monologue and is a lot of fun to play. The piece also requires a cameo at the end from a female who is the long suffering wife. Age is not so vital for this role.

Please email kierancarroll@hotmail.com by Sunday 20th June if you are interested in the part.

Thanking you, Kieran

Shakespeare Loving Volunteers Required


We’re a professional theatre company based in Reading and from the 15th – 25th June we’re putting on Twelfth Night in Henley, outdoors on Mill Meadows.

At the event we require some Front of House support and wondered whether any of your members might be interested in offering their services. In return, we’d be thrilled to offer a free ticket for a friend or family member as well as our undying love.

We often work with community actors and run many internship and work experience opportunities for those younger actors or backstage staff who are interested in going on to work in the profession.

If you’re able to pass the information on then we’d be extremely grateful.

Many Thanks,

Toby
