The British Theatre Challenge 2019

1 Oct – 5 Oct 7:30pm

After last year's sell-out run, the British Theatre Challenge is delighted to be returning to the Jack Studio Theatre with five new plays, wrapped into one very entertaining evening. A night of diverse, exciting and award winning plays from around the world.This year has seen 280 short plays submitted from 14 different countries making this the biggest challenge yet!
Co-directed by John Mitton and Christina Bartram
Starring Nyree Williams, Rosie Ward, Tom Cray, Denise Wilton, Olivia Busby, John Ewens, Laurie Duncan, Jonathan Forrester, Beth Noonan Roberts, Terry Perkins and Luke Francis.
Stage Managed by Emily O'Neill.
This year’s winning plays are:
Cougar by Michael Fenlason
Antisocial by Media Julie Barnett
For Abby by Holli Harms
Trick or Treat by Ron Asher
Fabio the Great by Elspeth Tilley

Press on previous productions:
A hugely inspirational vehicle for anybody watching. Slick... clever... a force to be reckoned with. Sky Blue Theatre’s concept and format for the British Theatre Challenge is a clever one... and one that deserves greater exposure. Downstage Centre
The acting was superb... enjoyable evening to begin with but grew in its substance and hold of the audience, all presented by a dynamic and engaging Sky Blue Theatre host. I look forward to hearing more from these writers and next year’s challenge. Fairy Powered Productions
All five pieces absolutely deserved their place on stage and will, I hope, be seen by audiences again in the future. - Theatre Things

BROS TC Academy Singing Workshop

Sunday 29th September 2019 1-5pm

Getting The Most Out Of Your Voice with JAMES HALL

This practical workshop looks to address many questions singers and performers ask about their voice. What is good singing? What is my voice capable of? Am I singing to my full potential? Why can’t my voice do that? How do I get my voice to sound like that? This workshop is suitable for both novice and experienced singers who are interested in learning more about their voice and its application. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pure classical singer, trained musical theatre performer or a Jazz scatter the workshop is accessible for all.

The four hour workshop aims to cover and explore the following points.
• How to create and maintain clear tone
• Accessing high notes without constriction
• Efficient singing
• Effective Vocal Warm ups
• Vocal Health
• Achieving more or less volume
• Accessing different vocal qualities
• Exploring Singing Myths

The workshop will be split into 2 halves. The first half will start with a general overview of how the voice works, followed by a vocal warm up. The main bulk of the session will then be singing as a group, exploring extracts of songs that feature common problems for most singers and how they can be resolved or adapted. Participants will have the opportunity to try out different voice qualities and gain a deeper understanding of how their voices work and their application.

The last 2 hours of the workshop will be an open session, six 20 minute slots are available for individuals to bring a section of a song that they are struggling with or have a problem they would like to solve. There is no obligation to sing in the open session but spectating is a key part of the workshop. Please bring a copy of the sheet music with you for me to accompany you. If you are interested in booking one of the slots please email me directly at info@jamesahall.co.uk
Any further questions please email me at the above address.

The Border on Shakespeare’s Stage

Professor Lisa Hopkins will explore Shakespeare and his fellow dramatists links to the Border and what they wrote about it.

At the Open Evening on Wednesday 07 August, the group will explain how productions are cast and will demonstrate what will happen the following evening at the Pantomime Auditions, to help any new members feel comfortable about the process. This usually involves all those who are interested in a part reading aloud a short section of the script, 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 songs, music, costumes, make-up as well as planning the choreography. The group are keen to meet lots of new people who would like to get involved in all of these areas.
Season 2018-19 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 comedy drama play ‘Time of My Life’ by Alan Ayckbourn was the first of the group’s two major public performance last year which played to packed houses in the Stewarton Area Centre in October 2018. Later in the season the group performed Neil Simon’s hilarious America comedy ‘Plaza Suite’ which delighted audiences in May 2019. In addition to this, the group performed a further “in-house” production of Three Scottish Plays in their own Premises in January 2019 for the enjoyment of their loyal Patrons and friends.
And the Group’s trophy cabinet is now proudly displaying seven new pieces of silverware, following on from their recent success at drama festivals across the country with their production of ‘A Galway Girl’ which made it through to the National Final of the Scottish Community Drama Association’s One Act Play Festival, where they performed as one of the top 8 plays in Scotland last year.
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 07 August from 7.30pm. This will be a great chance to come along, see round the Premises and have a chat with existing members and find out more about the Open Auditions for Cinderella on Thursday 08 August 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, Walter Findlay said:
“We’d love to meet you if you are interested in any aspect of theatre - 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 either, or both, of dates in our Premises - Wednesday 07 August and Thursday 08 August !

Workshop 8: Writing for Comedy

Saturday 31 August 10.00 to 17.00

Led by John Knowles

John Knowles will lead a day-long workshop exploring comedy writing for the theatre and taking your script from page to stage. The workshop will focus on duologues in particular, and in developing characters as well as looking at some rules (yes, there are some) and simple joke-writing techniques. The workshop will include plenty of hands-on exercises and an opportunity to have your work read by two professional actors. The Workshop is suitable for writers aged 18+ at all stages of their scriptwriting journey.

The day will be split into two key areas:

Morning session: 10.00am-12.45pm
Duologues, development, voice and character.

The workshop will explore the challenges of writing duologues, finding your character’s voices (mining your characters and taking a view). We’ll be looking at character outlines and backstories.

Break for Lunch 12.45pm – 1.45pm

Afternoon session: 1.45 pm – 4.30pm
The afternoon session will be focused around actual writing and creating comedy scenes which will be read/performed at the end of the session. We will also be looking at techniques for joke writing (if you want a gag fest) and a quick look at some sitcom rules.Places are limited to 12 participants so early booking is recommended.

We regret that this venue does not have disabled access. Nearest parking (pay & display) is The Bourne car park and there is more space at Rock-a-Nore car park on the Stade (10-15 minutes’ walk).

Tickets £65, students £55, available below (limited numbers)

Shakespeare in Italy Summer School, Florence



July 6-19

5 per cent discount on all bookings received with €400.00 deposit before February 15

I'm contacting you with details of Shakespeare in Italy's 5th summer school, to be held this year at the British Institute in Florence from July 6 – 19.

The summer school gives participants the rare opportunity to work with tutors who are leaders in their field in the UK theatre world. Royal Shakespeare Company and Globe directors Lucy Bailey and Chris Luscombe will lead work on Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet and acclaimed actor/director Philip Franks on The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

Last year in Pizzo Calabro we had a wonderful group, ranging in age from 18 to 95 from all over the world. Everyone took part in putting scenes from the plays on their feet but in past years some people have wanted to participate from the comfort of their seats. Both approaches are welcome!

Our course is practical, not academic, and it is open to all, the only proviso being that you can speak English fluently.

The benefits are innumerable and there is always a lot of fun to be had as well as gaining great theatrical insight into the texts. Please find the attached PDF for more details and contact Mary Chater at shakespeareinitaly.eu@gmail.com with any questions you may have.

We'd love you to join us but don't delay booking because summer hotel rooms in Florence get snapped up very quickly! If you would like to book, just email me without delay. I will give you the details you will need to make your deposit and save your place on the course. Don’t forget if we receive this before February 15 you will receive a 5 per cent discount!

With best wishes from Collette Parker and Mary Chater (a founder of the company)

Shakespeare in Italy – ‘country and playwright – exploring the relationship through performance.’

Just take a breath ... and there it is.

In Alba, there are 6 basic emotions: Anger, Joy, Fear, Sadness, and two forms of love: Tenderness and Erotic. These are the primary colors of human emotion. All other feelings we identify are mixes of two or more of these core emotions.

Improv Workshops with the fabulous Faye Brann
Comedy improviser Faye Brann will be taking you on a journey to develop creativity and characters you can believe in, helping you find an array of improvisation tools. Whether for audition preparations or when trying to find that ever so important inspiration when you're in the back row of the chorus, your new found improv skills will not let you down! Over a series of workshops we'll be exploring spontaneity, status and emotion through a series of games and scene construction by working with others, bringing characters to life and hopefully having a lot of fun in the process!

FAYE SAYS
"Improv is a fantastic tool to have in your stagecraft kit and can help enormously with self-confidence and teamwork in everyday life too. You don't need to have done improv before, you don't have to be funny or clever, and it's really not as scary as you might think!"

WE SAY
"Faye's improv class gave me the ability to stop caring about what I looked like and give anything a try. It was so freeing and has certainly made me try new things and challenge myself with different roles. It's also brilliant fun!" Helen Lowe

"Faye has a wonderful ability to put you at ease and help you relax into your character without feeling self-conscious or awkward. It was so liberating to say the first thing that came into my head - often hilarious and sometimes incredibly revealing! I can't recommend her sessions highly enough!" Lou Ellard-Turnbull

To book a place: Email sian.walters@brostc.org stating which sessions you would like to attend and whether you are a member or non-member. Sessions are free to members. Non-members please bring £5 cash to the sessions you are attending.

Theatre Workshop

Theatre Workshop: This is iT an experiential workshop! [ E-lab Studio, India]

29th and 30th June 2019

A doctor and theatre practioner Dr. Harshawardhan Shrotri would be taking a theatre workshop based on the THEATRE OF THE OPPRESSED methodology which was formulated by Augusto Boal.
The workshop is open for all; actors and non-actors.
About the workshop Dr. Shrotri says in a press release that: 'Theatre is a very safe space where one can project her/his real life problems and experiment with them in a realistic way to find out the possible solution. The workshop would deal with real-life-interpersonal-conflicts in a dramatic way.'

Inter-School Drama Awards

Sunday 30th June 2019, 3:00 pm

The Rudolph Walker Foundation is delighted to invite you to attend our annual Inter-School Drama Awards.
This event celebrates the strong commitment of Rudolph Walker OBE and the important role that The Foundation - Inter-School Drama Awards play in fulfilling its objectives:

• To keep young people engaged, providing them with a sense of purpose, recognising their different talents and skills.
• To help them fulfil their talents and skills and to build their self-esteem to develop a sense of responsibility and ambition.
The work of the Foundation is making a significant impact and adding value to the lives of young people based on the positive feedback we have received to date:

A mother told us taking part in the awards had “transformed her daughter from a shy and retiring child, who was being bullied at school,” to someone full of confidence who now had a solid friendship group.

In a previous year a winning group of boys had been in danger of exclusion but realising they would not be allowed to take part in the awards if they did not attend school, had turned their lives around. One of them even went on to become head boy!

Of last year's participants 79% said that they learnt a new skill and 82% said their confidence had improved.

This year six schools from London, Birmingham, Bristol and Essex will join us at The Shaw Theatre in Euston for an afternoon of performances with special guests & more! With the help of their celebrity mentors each school is looking to impress an audience of friends, family, celebrities, dignitaries and judges with a performance they have written, directed and produced themselves.

Guaranteed to have you laughing, crying and open your eyes to how young people see the world! This is an event for all, so bring your children, friends and family.
Rudolph Walker OBE will also be presenting a special screening of “Hero” – on Monday 24th June, the extraordinary life and times of Trinidadian war veteran, Ulric Cross, at Stratford Picturehouse at 8:30 pm. This film will be followed by a discussion hosted by BBC London’s drive-time supremo Eddie Nestor, Director Frances-Anne and more to be confirmed.

Improv Workshops with the fabulous Faye Brann
Comedy improviser Faye Brann will be taking you on a journey to develop creativity and characters you can believe in, helping you find an array of improvisation tools. Whether for audition preparations or when trying to find that ever so important inspiration when you're in the back row of the chorus, your new found improv skills will not let you down! Over a series of workshops we'll be exploring spontaneity, status and emotion through a series of games and scene construction by working with others, bringing characters to life and hopefully having a lot of fun in the process!

FAYE SAYS
"Improv is a fantastic tool to have in your stagecraft kit and can help enormously with self-confidence and teamwork in everyday life too. You don't need to have done improv before, you don't have to be funny or clever, and it's really not as scary as you might think!"

WE SAY
"Faye's improv class gave me the ability to stop caring about what I looked like and give anything a try. It was so freeing and has certainly made me try new things and challenge myself with different roles. It's also brilliant fun!" Helen Lowe

"Faye has a wonderful ability to put you at ease and help you relax into your character without feeling self-conscious or awkward. It was so liberating to say the first thing that came into my head - often hilarious and sometimes incredibly revealing! I can't recommend her sessions highly enough!" Lou Ellard-Turnbull

To book a place: Email sian.walters@brostc.org stating which sessions you would like to attend and whether you are a member or non-member. Sessions are free to members. Non-members please bring £5 cash to the sessions you are attending.

'...One of the things about acting is it allows you to live other people's lives without paying the price...' Robert De Niro

Here at Staged Cambridge, we quite like Mr De Niro's mantra. After all, isn't acting all about stepping in to someone else's shoes and becoming them, even if it is only fictitious??
Well we're about to put this to the test, when the group reunites to experiment with, and consider a number of play scripts for our theatre showcase, scheduled to be our first production, in a couple of months time.
We're keen to hear from individuals who have an interest in amateur theatre, with or without experience, to help us achieve our goal.

Staged Cambridge has developed a programme which will delve in to a variety of theatrical genres, including improvisation, classic and contemporary. We also plan to include periodic workshops to help us all improve our understanding of our craft.
We'll be meeting on Thursday 4th April at 8pm, at Cherry Hinton Library, High Street, Cherry Hinton, CB1 9HZ. Entry is just £1 to cover cost of facilities. (10% booking fee)

March 27th, April 3rd, April 10th 8:00 - 10:00pm

BROS TC Academy announce inaugural sessions

GLEE CLUB with Chris Nash
Experienced MD and musical theatre buff Chris will take us through a range of musical theatre chorus numbers over the course of three workshops, some familiar and some less well known but just as catchy! As well as learning the songs, we will focus on developing good vocal and chorus techniques to get those show-tunes sounding like they came straight out of the West End!

Chris says:- 'For those who don’t know me, I am relatively new to Bros but had a great time last year in 'A Class Act' and 'High Society'. Before moving to London, I was heavily involved in various groups in Cambridge. My MD credits include Gypsy, High Society and Assassins, which we took to the Edinburgh Fringe. I have also played in countless bands on keys or reeds, and eventually made my way onto the stage too.

Introduction to Adjudicating

Introduction to Adjudicating

Sunday 10th Feb 2019 9:30am - 4:45pm

Discover what it takes to be a GoDA Adjudicator
Being an adjudicator can be an incredibly rewarding job, but it can also be a challenging one. Join experienced GoDA practitioners for a day of informative and practical talks and workshops that provide an introduction to the life and work of an adjudicator.

Introduction to Adjudicating is broken down into sessions led by experienced GoDA members who will guide you through the inner workings of adjudicating drama.

The day is not a formal part of the entry process and is your chance to ask as many questions as you would like as well as trying your hand at adjudicating in a safe and comfortable environment. Should you wish to go forward for the selection weekend you will not be assessed by any of the adjudicators who have led sessions during this introductory day.
NB. Although there is no requirement for you to have completed the day in order to progress to the selection weekend, we have found that the day proves very successful for candidates who decide to apply for Associate Membership of the Guild.

Improvised Musical Workshop Improvised Musical Workshop

Improvised Musical Workshop

Sunday 24th February 2019
Time: 11am - 5pm with a break for lunch

There's only a few days left until our Improvised Musical workshop and we still have a few spaces left to fill! If you’re lucky enough to have seen Showstopper! The Improvised Musical and wonder how anyone could come up with it without months of rehearsals, a script and a score, then why not join us and be taught by one of the Showstopper! cast themselves?
Heather Urquhart and her musical improviser partner, pianist Joe Samuel, are coming to give BROSsers an insight into the wonderful world of making up songs. During the day we’ll be doing some musical improv exercises and games to encourage spontaneity and creativity, plus a whole lot of singing!
You don’t have to have done improv before and you don’t have to be funny. Improv is a great skill to have in your theatre toolkit, and you’ll take away lots of useful tips from the day, plus of course, it’s going to be loads of fun. And if the very thought of making things up scares the life out of you, well, you’ll be in a safe, supportive environment where there’s no wrong answer. After all, how can you get the lyrics or tune wrong to a song that you are writing?


"Feels amazing having these skills in my toolbox."
"You'll hurt yourself laughing. With teachers like Heather and Joe you believe you can do anything."
Cost: Members £25.00
Non-members £30.00

Estill Voice Training

Level 1 Figures for Voice Control & Level 2 Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities
Level 1 and 2 Course
Course ID: 73

2019/01/07 to 2019/01/11 (YYYY/MM/DD) Time: 9am to 6pm Cost: £600 including workbooks (Returners £500) Language: English Instructor: Gillian McLaren Scott

This course is for anyone who would like to improve their singing or speaking voice—singers, actors, vocal coaches, drama instructors, speech-language pathologists, and other vocal health professionals.

Level One: Figures for Voice™ teaches the Craft of speaking and singing. During this course students are introduced to 13 vocal structures that influence voice quality. Each structure produces a range of different vocal sound effects. The Figures for Voice are exercises used to develop predictable control of each structure’s options. The skills developed in Level One will help you add strength, clarity and stamina to your voice!

Level Two builds on the knowledge and skills from Level One by asking students to combine different options learned through the Figures in "recipes" for six basic voice qualities. These qualities – Speech, Falsetto, Sob, Twang, Opera, and Belting – appear as specifically defined by the Estill Voice Model. Figure Combinations for Six Voice Qualities™ gives you a better understanding of the human voice’s limitless possibilities, along with how to keep it vibrant and healthy.

Throughout the day, new voice skills are practiced in small group sessions. Participants will be given the chance to explore Figure applications for individual repertoire and case studies in open coaching sessions. There will also be ample time for questions and discussion.

This course will be presented by Gillian McLaren Scott, Estill Master Trainer and Scotland's only Estill Mentor & Course Instructor.
(Please note: Completion of Level 1 is a pre-requisite for attending Level 2)

Teaching and Delivering Improvisation Techniques Workshop with Helen Halliday

Saturday 12th January, 10am-4pm

This improvisation workshop will focus on the teaching and delivering of techniques to stimulate creativity and inspire exploration of the process. Being a teacher in creative arts can exhaust your own creativity and this workshop is designed to give you fresh and exciting ideas at the point of delivery.
All creative art starts with an idea. We all have ideas ergo we all are creative beings. Some of us are lucky in that we have the time, space and capacity to expand an idea into a whole thing, whether that’s a picture, an object, a piece of music, a dance or a story. For some, the process is more challenging. With the increased demands of the new specifications it is even more important that students have the tools to devise/improvise quickly and effectively.
To play make believe, or role play as the dramaturgs call it, is to explore and experience. It gives students confidence and tools for communication and installs in them a sense of familiarity, preparing them to be an adult in a complicated world. It enables them to become proud creators of work, a feeling that will linger with them as they grow and mature, bolstering their future confidence in the world of employment. Improvising and devising has a far reaching effect on a student’s development.
Teaching young people to improvise is a challenge. It takes planning, creativity and in depth knowledge of the process. You must be a facilitator. A guide. You must try to remember how it feels to have your mind go blank or be out of control, to not have words to explain your feelings or to be able to express your wishes clearly. Because teaching improvisation is about understanding vulnerability and allowing that nakedness, that openness or emptiness to be the start of something.

LITERARY GREAT IN THE HOT SEAT

LITERARY GREAT IN THE HOT SEAT

Saturday 26th January 7pm

Literary great Michael Frayn will be in the hot seat in Winchester in January 2019, answering questions from John Miller on the playwright and author's remarkable career.

Best known as the author of the farce Noises Off and the dramas Copenhagen and Democracy. His novels, such as Towards the end of the Morning, Headlong and Spies have also been critical and commercial successes and his plays have won six Evening Standard and three Olivier Awards and Copenhagen also won the Prix Moliere in Paris and a Tony Award for Best Play on Broadway.

Michael Frayn is unusual in being equally successful as novelist and playwright, a distinction he shares with Anton Chekhov, which may explain his third writing gift of translating the latter’s plays from the Russian. His novel Skios was nominated on the long list for the Booker Prize, and his previous book Stage Directions is a collection of his essays about his theatre work over half a lifetime, including the introduction to his last play Afterlife at the National Theatre. It is also a reflection on his path into theatre: his early, ill-fated attempts at Cambridge Footlights, his subsequent scorn in his newspaper columns and, surprisingly late in life, his reluctant conversion to the stage.

“Since I have spent my life writing novels as well as plays, one of the questions which people always ask is how I decide whether a new idea is one for a play or for a novel. The answer is that I don’t. The matter decides itself. The idea that takes shape inside one’s head has its form written upon it; that’s what makes it an idea and not just a piece of wishful thinking,” says Michael.

“Michael talks as brilliantly as he writes”, says John “and I look forward to a fascinating discussion of his craft as playwright and novelist.”

The evening follows previous highly successful In Conversation evenings with Dame Judi Dench and Claire Tomalin as fundraisers for the family support charity Home-Start Winchester. “John Miller has an amazing address book,” says Home-Start Winchester Chairman Liz Cooper “and we are so grateful for his supporting us in this way.”

The event at Winchester Guildhall at 7pm on Saturday 26th January, will be followed by a book signing by Winchester booksellers P & G Wells and tickets at £12 are available by calling 01962 851177 or email info@home-startwinchester.org.uk or online at michaelfraynwinchester.eventbrite.co.uk (plus a booking fee).
