Acting in Restoration Comedy Workshop with Sophie Watkiss

Acting in Restoration Comedy Workshop with Sophie Watkiss

Saturday 10th November, 10am-4pm

Restoration Comedy is enjoying a revival on our contemporary stages. The aim of this one day workshop is to explore the vocal and physical skills required for performing the genre.
The morning session will briefly contextualise the role of Restoration Comedy in British theatre and consider its legacy today. It will go on to explore the vocal demands of the texts, such as verbal agility, dissembling and wordplay. This practical work will then be applied to ‘finding a voice’ for the range of character types found in the plays. The final part of the morning session will explore the physical style of movement required for the genre, including posture, stance and gesturing. The afternoon session will marry the voice and movement work explored earlier through working with longer extracts taken from Restoration Comedies. It will conclude by looking briefly at how subsequent playwrights have drawn on the style in their own writing.
Texts used in the workshop will include Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The School for Scandal – on the Edexcel A Level Drama syllabus, William Wycherley’s The Country Wife, George Farquhar’s The Recruiting Officer, William Congreve’s The Way of the World, Mary Pix’s The Beau Defeated as well as Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest and April de Angelis’s Playhouse Creatures. LAMDA also specifies Restoration and Post Restoration as one of the periods that learners can select pieces from at Level 3 - Bronze, Silver and Gold Medal.
By the end of the workshop, it is hoped that participants will have a ‘tool kit’ of ideas to take back into the Drama Studio or Classroom to introduce learners to performing Restoration Comedies and subsequent plays written in the Comedy of Manners style. The workshop is designed to support the teaching of GCSE and A Level courses in the Performing Arts, as well as LAMDA qualifications.

Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story - Talk Event

Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story - Talk Event

Wednesday 12 September 2018 | 19.00 – 20.30

2018 marks the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein, a composer who transformed musical theatre and left a legacy of truly American music

Bernstein is perhaps best known for his score for West Side Story, which continues to inspire and introduce new generations to the genre. The original production on Broadway in 1957 reflected a period of extraordinary cultural change that was taking place in the United States at this time.

But there were other notable works for the theatre - On the Town and Candide – and in the concert Hall, a Second Symphony, The Age of Anxiety and The Chichester Psalms.

To celebrate the centenary and Bishopsgate Institute’s recent, sold out, production of West Side Story, join us for a special event with Nigel Simeone, author of Leonard Bernstein: West Side Story (2009) and The Leonard Bernstein Letters (2013), in conversation with writer and broadcaster Christopher Cook.

This talk will explore the original production and Bernstein’s contribution, and consider how Bernstein’s letters give us a unique insight into both the man and his music.

Stewarton Drama Group Open Evening



8 August at 19:30

STEWARTON DRAMA GROUP will open their 46th season of drama on Wednesday 08 August 2018 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 evening will also feature a surprise performance which the Group are calling ‘From Page……To Stage’ to entertain everyone on the night.
The Group meet on Wednesday 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.

Stewarton Drama Group will open our new season on Wednesday 8th August by holding an event in our premises in the Scout Building in Corsehillbank Street, Stewarton aimed at attracting new members and new patrons. If you are over 18 and interested in finding out we put a production together, please come along ! We've called the event 'From Page to Stage' - a poster is attached and our press release is copied below. Please feel free to spread the word to family and friends, and we hope to see some of you then - you will be most welcome.
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 2017-18 was a tremendous success for the Group. The season opened with an informal Open Evening in August when a rehearsed reading of a short play was performed for the enjoyment of all those attending. The murder mystery comedy thriller ‘A Tomb with a View’ was the group’s major public performance last year which played to packed houses in the Stewarton Area Centre in October. Later in the season the group performed three memorable Irish one-act plays (‘A Galway Girl’, ‘Losers’ and ‘Small Box Psychosis’) which delighted audiences in February. In addition to this, the group performed two further “in-house” productions in their own Premises in December and May for the enjoyment of their loyal Patrons and friends.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet is now proudly displaying two new pieces of silverware, following on from their recent success at a drama festival in The East Kilbride Village Theatre in May with their production of ‘A Galway Girl’. The play was placed Third overall at the conclusion of the week-long festival, and Nancy McPherson, who performed in the play, was awarded the prestigious trophy for Best Actress in the Festival.
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 08 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 2018-19 and how you might get involved.
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, Walter Findlay 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, or simply supporting the Group by becoming a Patron - please come along and meet us on Wednesday 08 August in our Premises.

We're reading 'Wyrd Sisters' by TerryPratchett



8 August 7:30pm

Wyrd Sisters features three witches: Granny Weatherwax; Nanny Ogg, matriarch of a large tribe of Oggs and owner of the most evil cat in the world; and Magrat Garlick, the junior witch, who firmly believes in occult jewelry, covens, and bubbling cauldrons, much to the annoyance of the other two.

Readings are how we test out new plays before deciding to produce them. All are welcome to come along, whether you want to read or simply listen. No experience is required and scripts will be provided.

Please feel free just to turn up, but if you can let us know you’ll be joining us we will appreciate it. We’ll start at 7.30pm with the committee meeting, at which we’ll discuss which of the plays we’ve read so far could be our October production!

All welcome, scripts will be provided!

Stage Combat Workshop

Stage Combat Workshop



Jul 15 2018 09:00 - 15:00

Leeds Community Arts Network (Facebook.com/LeedsCAN - Twitter.com/LeedsCAN) is partnering with Squire Stage Combat to offer a Stage Combat Workshop open members of the public as well as members of LeedsCAN.

Ever wondered how film makers make their fights look so realistic? Or how stunt people manage to get up time and time again after taking brutal looking falls? We all enjoy watching a swashbuckling duel or kung fu fist fight, but we rarely think about the work that goes into making some of our favourite fight scenes.

Stage combat is fun, non competitive, incredibly safe and a great way for people to get creative with one another. Ever wanted to feel like Jackie Chan? Nows your chance. How about a swashbuckling pirate? No problem. Learn how to make punches, kicks and slaps safe, pick up a sword and learn how to handle it like a pro. Squire’s range of workshops are designed to give everyone a taste of what its like to be a stunt performer. They are fun and fast and a great way to blow off steam with friends. This is all supported through our experienced instructors who keep things safe.

After a long day, often in a fairly structured and confined atmosphere its great to go a little wild! The focus is on fun. We are not looking to train the next Bruce Lee two hours before dinner. Instead we gather all the fun stage combat techniques together and dump them out for students to play with.

We let students engage with their new friends and along the way they may learn a thing or two. Students are able to be creative and physical together. We will combine all the physical benefits of a sport with the social benefits of a performance based activity and end up with a very unique and special experience. Make new friends and then punch them in the face!

These workshops are fast, physical and fun. They can be enjoyed by everyone since the focus is activity rather than performance. No one is asked to get up on stage unless they want to and all the fights, falls and flailing are fake! After all “the first rule of fight club is NO ONE GETS HURT!

All places must be booked in advance and are strictly limited so book your tickets now. If you can't get to this event, we're doing the same thing the week before on 8th July at Leeds Trinity University, prices are the same.

This is an all day session but no refreshments will be provided, so please bring your own.

The Academy of Commedia dell'Arte - Masterclass in Edinburgh



12/13 May

My name is Serena and I work with Charioteer Theatre, a theatre company and training centre based in Edinburgh which focuses on international work.
We are holding a four-weekend workshop that takes place in Edinburgh and is about an Italian form of theatre called Commedia dell’Arte.
We held our first Masterclass the first weekend of April and due to its success, we would like to extend the invitation again to those interested, as we think it would be a possibility for every actor and performer to broaden their knowledge and improve their skills.
Next masterclass will take place in the weekend of 12/13 May and will be held by Renzo Antonello, an Italian renown mask maker. Participants will use a large variety of masks including neutral, larval and traditional Commedia dell’Arte masks. This masterclass is perfect for artists who want to learn approaches to character development based on the mask and standard Commedia characters, as well as theatre makers and scholars interested in mask making and design.
On the Friday preceding each masterclass, each teacher will hold a conference starting at 6pm.
Next conference is on the 11th of May, will be held by Renzo Antonello at the Artiscience Library at Summerhall. The conferences are free and open to everyone.

Masterclass weekend:
12/13 May, Upper Church - Summerhall (Edinburgh)
From 10:00am to 5:00pm
£120 Concessions (Students, Equity members and 60+)
£140 Adults

Shakespeare in Italy's 4th International Summer School



May 19th – June 2nd 2018

This year it will take place in the beautiful seaside town of Pizzo Calabro in Calabria on the toe of Italy. The dates are May 19th – June 2nd.
Our three tutors are highly respected Shakespearean actors / directors. Jane Wymark will lead sessions on Much Ado About Nothing, Dame Janet Suzman will work on Antony & Cleopatra and Michael Pennington on The Winter's Tale.
The course is open to all who have a love of Shakespeare and speak English fluently. Some like to stand up and put scenes on their feet while others prefer to watch and comment from the comfort of their seats.
Participants on our former courses have come from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, the USA, Italy, Holland, Switzerland and France. Their ages have ranged from 19 – 93.
This year Reg Grouse is returning from Melbourne, Australia aged 96 – the power of Shakespeare!


There's more info on the website and here is our brochure.

The last 3 summer schools have been unforgettable – this one too promises great things by the sea in Pizzo.

With many thanks, Mary Chater

Sunday April 8th 12.30pm-6.30pm

In the South East over the Easter holidays?

We are running our inaugural Workshop for the Actor's Armoury
Acting is a great profession but can be a precarious career, with rejection implicit.
You have to be strong and marshal your will and positive determination in order to present and sell your skills and personality to the best advantage.
You also need to be able to audition, rehearse and perform with courage and creativity, safe from the marauding distractions of nerves and anxiety.

At the Actor's Armoury Workshop, you will learn how to best use your focus and imagination without falling prey to worry and what if's.

The Workshop will cover:
Auditions
Interviews
Vocal Technique & Safety
Industry Communication

You will meet and work with industry professionals and expert coaches with the opportunity for one-to-one feedback.

Cost: £80 per person

Moulin Rouge

Performers needed for charity event



22 April at 19:00–23:00

My name is Linnea and I'm organising an event aiming to raise money for a charity called Child.org. A charity working, primarily in Kenya, on development projects facilitating children to go to school and reach their potential. ( http://child.org/ )
The event 'Spectacular Cinema Presents Moulin Rouge' is an immersive cinema screening of Moulin Rouge on the 22nd of April, at The Fitzgerald Northern Quarter.
Through decoration, themed cocktails and fancy dress we aim to create the feeling that when the guests arrive they are transported into 1890's Paris for a night at the Moulin Rouge. To ensure this is an unforgettable experience we are looking for some actors to dress up and be characters from the movie, walk around talking to guests and bringing the right ambience to the night. We were wondering if this is something you may be interested in being involved in or if you know anyone that might be. Could you possible repost this email to the Drama groups website or any relevant place you think suitable.

Meyerhold's Biomechanics Workshop with Stephen Hudson

Meyerhold's Biomechanics Workshop with Stephen Hudson



Saturday 13th January, 10am-4pm

Stephen is a director, actor and teacher working within conservatoire training. He currently works at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, and at East 15 Acting School. He also set up the Sussex based, award winning theatre company The Brighton Laboratory. He has trained extensively in Biomechanics under the Russian Master Gennadi Bogdanov, himself trained by Nikolai Kustov, who collaborated with Meyerhold on the development of Actor’s Biomechanics. Stephen teaches Biomechanics both as a way to develop the actor’s physical capabilities in relation to strength, flexibility and specificity, and the corresponding emotional and psychological responses to eternal stimuli, but also as a means to a greater understanding of a Stanislavskian approach to text and character.

Biomechanics, created by Russian director Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940), is a rigorous physical training based on the premise that in order to be imaginatively free the actor must by physically free. It trains the actor’s physical dexterity, elasticity and responsiveness.

Meyerhold, a renowned actor and director with the Moscow Art Theatre, regarded movement, gesture, space and rhythm, as the primary elements of the ‘language of theatre.’ He dreamed of retheatricalizing the theatre, of creating a theatre that would give its audience truthful images of life but that wouldn’t seek to imitate or copy life, a theatre capable of revealing ‘inner dialogue by means of the music of plastic movement.’ Meyerhold’s work over three decades resulted in his system of Theatrical Biomechanics.

This workshop will be of interest to all Drama teachers, in particular those delivering A Level Drama, BTEC and Cambridge Technicals in Performing Arts.

If you are an actor looking to hone their skills or just want to try something new on your Wednesday nights we have some great opportunities for you.
We are running a series of eight workshops, each focusing on a specific theatre skill. In these sessions we will explore different aspects of performance through exercises, exploration and creative group work.

You can just come to one, or join us for all eight. Either way there is no obligation to join the group, just come and have a go.

Single Sessions are £5 or you can come to all eight for £30
All sessions will be physical so please wear appropriate clothing that allows free movement.
Sessions are for 18+
