Banbury Cross Players Performance Opportunity

Lulu and Drive-By Truckers ask the same question as BCP ...

Not only a hit song for Lulu in the 1970s, revived by Drive-By Truckers in 2012, Where’s Eddie? is a song currently in the mind of director Trish Thompson and cast member Tanis Hamilton-Everest (pictured above in BCP's 2014 production of Bedroom Farce).

Banbury Cross Players’ November production of Alan Ayckbourn’s hilarious Seasons’ Greetings is cast with the exception of Eddie, unlucky and lazy friend to Neville. Tanis, making a welcome return to BCP in the role of pregnant, nagging Patti, is currently without an actor to play her husband.

If you’re 20-35yrs old in search of an acting role with an award-winning theatre company, this could be the role for you! This black, often farcical comedy, follows a dysfunctional family over a period of four days at Christmas. Petty (and not so petty) squabbles abound. Christmas presents are rifled. Mechanical toys are set off. Hilarious highlights include a drunken game of snakes and ladders, a chaotically incompetent puppet show and a midnight love scene! What’s not to like?

For further details, contact Director Trish Thompson on 01608 737235 or 07496146151 or by email to i.thompson901@btinternet.com.

Production dates are 8-11 November 2017 at The Mill Arts Centre. You will need to be available from Sunday 5 November for Technical and Dress Rehearsals.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Conference on Change

Hello
I am a volunteer worker for the charity Sova and we are holding a staff conference in Birmingham on the 12th October 2017.

We are having speakers throughout the day and I thought it would be an interesting idea to have a drama group for one of the time slots. I was wondering if any groups did anything on the subject of change as the theme for the conference is change.
This could be interactive and people could get involved or be a visual display.

Please email me with any thoughts or ideas.

Voice work

Hi!
I am working on a series of novels set in fictionalised versions of Camber, Rye, Winchelsea and Pett Level. Hopefully, these will be funded by Arts Council England.

There will be audio versions of the books, and I am looking for someone local to be the "voice" of this project.

I really want a mature, local, female voice, which will become identified with this series. There will also be some public readings, voice-over for a short promotional video, etc. Whoever the "voice" is, will get full credits, and will be paid at the market rate.

If you have any questions about this project, I'd be delighted to give you details.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Stewarton Drama Group

Stewarton Drama Group
www.stewarton-drama-group.co.uk

Facebook  

STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 45th season of drama on Wednesday 09 August 2017 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 2016-17 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 group’s annual Pantomime ‘Harry Potter and the Yellow Brick Road’ played to packed houses in the Stewarton Area Centre in December, and later in the season the group performed their memorable production of the hit comedy play ‘Ladies Day’ which delighted audiences in March. In addition to this, the group performed two further “in-house” productions in their Premises in September and May for the enjoyment of their loyal Patrons.

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 09 August from 7.30pm. This will be a great chance to come along, see round the Premises and have a chat with existing members. You will also have the opportunity to find out more about the Group’s planned productions for the new drama season 2017-18 which opens with the murder mystery comedy thriller ‘A Tomb With A View’, directed by Nancy McPherson, which the group will perform in the Stewarton Area Centre on Thursday 05 and Friday 06 October 2017 at 7.30pm.

Alternatively, for only £30 a year you can become a Patron of the award-winning Group and receive two tickets for each of their 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, Alison Barr 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 09 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 at www.facebook.com/stewartondramagroup by clicking the ‘LIKE’ button at the top of the page to receive all our news updates.

Volunteers needed for street opera!

Volunteers needed for street opera

Dear London Drama Groups,

I am contacting you in regards for our hunt to find some volunteers to help with our upcoming promenade adaption of Mozart's Così fan tutte. This is an incredibly exciting venture however we are in the search of some individuals to help bring this production to it's feet!

This production works itself round the streets of different locations within the borough of Merton; audience members will follow the story through supermarkets and cafes creating a free and un-ticketed piece helping to bring opera to the general public.

We are looking to recruit two volunteers for each performance of our production and you would be there to help the running of the piece. However there are no skills you need to possess before except the ability to walk and stand for at least an hour - all other training will be done on the day. Luckily due to the interest in the production we are able to offer London travel card expenses, to each volunteer, along with a drink and snack on the day of the performance. We would also like to invite volunteers, if they wish, into rehearsals to watch how the piece is taking shape prior to the performance week.

If however you would not like to volunteer but are interested in experiencing the production please take this as an open invitation to attend and please find the details of times and locations below -

www.baselessfabric.co.uk/productions/cosi-fan-tutte

We have assembled a truly exceptional cast and it is looking to be a really wonderful production so I was wondering if you were able to forward this onto your members in the hope that some may be interested? Please find attached a flyer with more information on and you can either contact the email address on the flyer or myself directly.

I hope this reaches you well and if you have any more questions please don't hesitate to contact me,

James Wakeling
Stage Manager

Person Required to Officiate at a Wedding

Hi there,

A quick enquiry to see if anyone is available for a job in Central Bristol on Saturday 2nd of September for about half hour or so acting as an unofficial registrar for a wedding.

Basically my partner and I are getting married in the South Bank Club, Dean Lane, in BS3, which doesn't actually have a wedding licence. We're signing the formal paperwork in the registry office the following day but we are holding the ceremony and doing our vows with friends and family on the Saturday.

We have a budget of £100 and we'll write our own vows - we just need someone with confidence standing up in front of people to lead the ceremony.

If anybody would be willing to take up our offer of £100 for an hour's work of leading a ceremony, please do ask them to call me on 07834603789.

Many thanks,
Mike and Mel

ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS by Richard Bean

Still very much looking for 'younger' actors for 2 roles in ONE MAN TWO GUVNORS (nothing else has been cast as yet for those who attended last audition).
Please contact me or share with anyone you think might be interested. Email Ian Amos : ianamos50@gmail.com

Wed 25th to Sat 28th October at 7:45pm

Directed by Ian Amos

A fast-paced physical comedy with lots of run-around slapstick humour, closely based on Goldoni’s ‘The Servant of Two Masters’ (which some of you may remember Dedham performing as the open air production in 2002). Bean sets the play in Brighton in April 1963 among criminals both local and those hitting the seaside from London. The acting style will be quite stylised, a little exaggerated.

ALAN 25+ Wants to be an actor – and acts like one! Madly in love with Pauline. Lives life as though it is a play and not real at all.

STANLEY 30+ A bit of a hooray Henry – in love with Rachel. Killed her brother accidentally and now on the run – to Brighton.

Casting children for CBBC game show series - Horrible Histories Gory Games

I’m a Casting Researcher working on the new series of the popular CBBC show Horrible Histories Gory Games.

We’re currently looking for children to apply to be contestants in the series and I'd like to offer this opportunity to the many students of the drama groups listed on your www.dramagroups.com?

The new series will be filmed during the school summer holidays meaning no time off would be required, and production would cover all expenses for the child and a parent to come to London and film.

Gory Games is a fun and exciting game show which involves three contestants per episode battling it out in history related challenges and quirky quizzes, in order to win a variety of grizzly prizes. We’re looking for horrible historians between the ages of 8 and 12 to apply to take part, and applications need to be received by us by the 21st July.

I have attached the application form for convenience here, or alternatively, children can be directed to the CBBC website to get the application form from there - www.bbc.co.uk.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best wishes,
Kat Rogers | Casting Researcher | Citrus Television

Read-Throughs for Small Film Production

Hi all,

I'm seeking a small drama group or talented individuals to do some read-through’s leading to a small production to be filmed as a pitch to Channel 4.

A previous project I was involved with, which I was invited to a meeting with Channel 4 in Newcastle, has been revived.

It’s based around the interactions and social interplay between the building industry and clients.

Saucy and salacious, similar in context to a Shameless meets Construction.

The plan is to gather some talented individuals together, do a few read-through’s as I develop the scripts, act them on stage, do a few plays, film some and finally pitch once again to Channel 4, to see if we can get it on television.

It may be just the fun project you seek!

If you’re fun, open minded and wish to take part - get in touch.
(Its adult humour so must be over 18)

The distance isn’t a problem if you wish to do some read-through’s, but I am based in Doncaster for when we reach a possible production stage.

I have previously posted a posting on Starnow.com where I am a professional casting agent, but quite a few applicants are based too far away for further acting etc, and covering expenses etc is not practical.

I cannot unfortunately cover any expenses as my limited budget is fixed for further filming etc.

On a side note, I pitched the project to Tina Malone’s agent and she stated it interests her. It’s an indication it must have legs!

You never know – this could be the one!

Email contact@asyproductions.com

Get in touch.

Kind regards,
