Christmas Partnership

I’m in the process of approaching Manchester based drama groups regarding a Christmas Partnership.

I work for Chill Factore in Manchester and we’re keen to partner with a drama group to do a short panto on the snow this Christmas. It could be as short as one scene or a full pantomime depending on the group and what they’re able to deliver and will be an exciting event as the only panto on real snow this Christmas.

We would invite Chill Factore guests to come and enjoy the panto on the snow and promote the drama group on our social channels, website and in promotional activity. It would need to be a simple execution given the logistics of acting on the slope but we can look into the provision of required AV/sound equipment and covering any costs.

It could be a really fun initiative and we’d appreciate any help in sharing the word and putting any possible groups in touch with me.

Thanks,
Helen

Pantomime Winter Wonderland Themed Charity Dinner

I am planning to hold a Pantomime Winter Wonderland Themed Charity Dinner in December in Glasgow city centre and looking for a group that could perform something that links in with the winter wonderland theme.

I am still in the planning process of the events. Currently I am just researching the prices to have a group come out and perform as it will be a charity event so will be on a budget.

It would be in January around the first week and just looking for a 45mins-1 hour performance. Hopefully, all the facilities the group will need will be provided.

St Maragarets Care Home - Reader Required

I have a strange request!
I wondered if any of your associated drama groups would have anyone who would be interested in reading for our residents here at our care home?
We have a resident who is keen to have someone read a book, but stated it would have to be someone who was good at it!
I thought maybe somebody who would be interested?

Best Wishes

Help needed for a NFTS shooting next week

Hi there!

I'm contacting you regarding the project “The girl with two heads”, a film project for the National Film and Television School. We hoped some of your members could be of assistance during the shooting. We are looking for 20 men and women from High Wycombe or near by. Ages between 20-45 to be supporting artists for our short film.

We’re looking for supporting artists in the surrounding areas to come and act as observers of the fight scene and some people acting as trainers for the next fight in the background. All supporting artists are non-speaking. We just require a good attitude and a love for the sport! Filming will take place on a Hight Wycombe Boxing club and artists will be required the 28th and 29th of September. If you’re only available for one of the required shoot dates then please still get in touch as we may be able to accommodate this. Sadly as the school is a charity we’re unable to pay for your time on this occasion but we will provide food and drink throughout the day.

It would be great if people who may be interested in being apart of our film could contact us via email and then we will contact them to answer any questions they may have.

The situation is time sensitive so I would appreciate it if we could "close" everyone in the next couple of days...

Thank you in advance for your assistance in our search!

Cheers,

GRAN KNOWS BEST

NEW TELEVISION PROGRAMME - GRAN KNOWS BEST (W/T)

Shiver Productions are developing an exciting new television programme for a major broadcaster.

We are looking for outgoing grandparents who want to spend more time with their adult grandchildren (who must be 18 plus).

With grandparents reportedly only seeing their grandkids on average twice a year, it’s not surprising the two generations often know little about each other’s lives. In ‘Gran Knows Best’ (w/t), British grandparents will spend one-on-one time with their multiple grandchildren in an attempt to get to know them better and see if they can offer any help.

Along the way they will learn about the pressures their grandchildren face, the lifestyle choices they make, their hopes for the future and what, if anything, is standing in their way of achieving them.

Our programme will allow grandparents to share their knowledge, advice and practical help while learning more about the lives, hopes and aspirations of their grandchildren.

If you are interested – or you know someone who may fit the bill – please call me on 0207 157 4588 or email me on shivercasting@shiver.tv

I thought this may be of interest to the wonderful Amateur Dramatics world if anyone wishes to further their experience and skills.

Under the direction of Jim Cartwright,I shall be teaching TV acting, audition technique and more importantly, having fun and using our imaginations to become better actors or to use the new found skills in every day life.
Classes for both adults and children in Bramhall every Thursday from September.

Please find below Jim's quote regarding these classes which is soon to go on the I Love Bramhall Website:

''We are thrilled to be bringing The Cartwright Drama Studio to Bramhall and particularly excited that the classes will be run by Neil Rowland, who has worked successfully in all areas of the acting profession. He also brings to the sessions the skills of a natural and imaginative communicator and an experienced teacher.
The Cartwright Drama studio invites the people of Bramhall to come and experience our ground breaking approach to drama training. People of all levels and ages are welcome from absolute beginners, to the creatively curious to professionals and all ages are served from children to OAPS. Why not give it a go? The least that can happen is you will have a good laugh the best is that you will find your way to working in the acting profession.'

Banbury Cross Players

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.

Best wishes,

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,

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,

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.

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.

Amateur Film Maker Needs Cast

I am an amateur film maker (more details later) and am looking to make a short personalised movie regarding an aspect of Swanage.

It would go under the heading as a 'documentary' in this case a little excessive but by the very nature of that it does mean that I have to convey a lot of information - but with one face/one voice it will become boring.

I think I can minimise this by incorporating interviews - one in particular allowing me to put out most of the key facts. To keep the structure balanced I'm aiming to do the interview via a script - hoping it to appear relaxed etc.

I wonder whether in the local AM -DRAM members there might be interested in helping me. Setting up takes most of the time but I reckon overall about two hours.

Regret I can't afford fees as such - but the budget might run to a Dorset Cream Tea or Pie and a Pint.

I'm trying not to hype me or my project so let me explain.

I live in North East London - Retired - and belong to a local amateur film making group.
In this respect I mainly write scripts - help out generally - and reluctantly say a few lines in front of camera.

The production team comprises of me - my wife - a small cameral and a limited amount of equipment.

Perhaps I should mention that I will be in Swanage 1st July for a week.

If anyone is interested in this please contact me.

Regards

Frederick Aiano

TWO HERITAGE OPPORTUNITIES AT THE MARLOWE!
ACTING AND STAGE MANAGEMENT
PROFESSIONAL THEATRE EXPERIENCE
WE WANT YOU!

Hi,

Please see the below information about two upcoming heritage opportunities, in conjunction with The Marlowe, that will hopefully excite you and your wider networks! We would be very grateful if you could please share this on.

1. RETURN OF THE UNKNOWN - Acting Opportunity

Return of the Unknown is a performance project led by The Marlowe to challenge the limits of cultural memory, seeking to discover what World War 1 means to us today and revealing what we have forgotten, returning the unknown to public consciousness.

We are challenging your community (as well as four others across Kent) to come together and ask "What are we remembering?", while invoking the question’s more ominous shadow: "What have we forgotten?".

The aim is to create and perform a powerful piece of drama about Remembrance and WW1, with the opportunity to perform in your town in the week of Armistice Day, 11 November 2017.

We are currently recruiting budding actors in Ashford, Birchington and Faversham.

Please see the flyers Ashford, Birchington, Faversham for more details!

Alternatively, please email MLWParticipation@marlowetheatre.com using the subject ‘Return of the Unknown' to find out more and get involved!


2. THE MARLOWE SUMMER PERFORMANCE - CREED OF SPIES - Stage Management/Heritage Management Opportunity

We are offering an exciting opportunity for aspiring stage managers and anyone interested in working in theatre this summer.
Creed Of Spies is an exciting and innovative heritage project culminating in performance this summer, working with performers from the Marlowe’s youth programme. The piece is a newly written play, merging first person narrative gaming with the dark underbelly of Christopher Marlowe's 16th Century Canterbury. This site responsive production will be performed across the streets and spaces of Renaissance Canterbury.

We want your help to make this exciting show happen!

We are looking for assistants aged 16+ to help us with the stage management of the heritage sites in the production. While some stage management experience would be useful, we are mostly looking for professionalism, enthusiasm, and a passion for making performance.

These position offers an amazing opportunity for experience for anyone wanting to work in any aspect of the theatre. Working with professional stage managers, technicians, and staff from all areas of the theatre, we can offer you a valuable, educational and practical time with us. We will of course be available as a reference for any participants in future.

You would need to be available for evenings and weekends from the 12th to the 20th July.

We can also pay expenses for this position so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Please email Euan on euan.maybank@marlowetheatre.com with a list of relevant experience, your availability in the dates provided, along with a brief description of why you would like to be involved and what you can bring to the project.

We really look forward to hearing back from you!
Thanks,
The Marlowe Team

ITVs LITTLE BIG SHOTS SERIES 2 IS CASTING NOW!

Little Big Shots

Hi, my name is Lewis and I am a Casting Researcher on the new series of the hit ITV show - Little Big Shots hosted by the simply lovely Dawn French. The first series peaked with over 5 million viewers and we are delighted to be back shining the spotlight on more amazing kids.

The programme simply celebrates young talent and funny, entertaining children – from teeny tap dancers to dinosaur experts, from viral superstars to acrobats, impressionists to comedians, from superb singers to Rubik’s Cube speed champions, mathematicians to sensational spellers. It is not a competition or game show. Whether individuals, duos or groups of youngsters, the only rule is that the child is between the ages of 3 and 13.

We are looking for performers and skills of all kinds and would love to know if you think there might be someone in your organisation that knows a potential Little Big Shot! Whether it be a mini Shakespeare, future headliner or an Oscar-winning performer we want to hear from you!

Parents or guardians who may wish to nominate their child please use the following direct link to our applications page: https://www.walltowall.co.uk/casting/little-big-shots_1019.aspx

Our YouTube channel has clips from the first series and the link can be found below:

Thank you very much for your time,
Best wishes

Voiceovers required for film short

I am the producer of a small pilot film - about 10 mins long - The pilot will be used as a pitch for any independent film director (e.g. Ken Loach), who might be interested in taking up an option on an extant screenplay called ‘Betrayal’. The story is based on the actual experience of two Americans who - along with thousands of others - went to the Soviet Union in the early 1930s, in order to help build socialism. But they found themselves in a living hell, because their arrival coincided with the rise of Stalin’s terror state! You could describe it as a political thriller. Our aim is for a feature film to be completed in time for the centenary of the Russian Revolution, i.e. October 2017.

The pilot is almost completed. But we need two actors to do voiceovers for the middle-aged American couple who are at the centre of the story. N.B. The actors do not have to act out their roles in front of camera. If you can find anyone who might be interested in helping us, we would be most grateful. We are happy to send you the script for the pilot film in due course..

Because we are operating on a very limited budget, and having exhausted the patience of our own friends (!), we are now turning to our local thespians for help. We are willing to pay for the services of the two actors, as long as it is not too expensive to hire them. The dialogue they will speak only lasts about 5 minutes.

One Act Play Festival 2017 Winners

Hello All,

First of all, many thanks to all the societies who made the effort to enter and support the GMDF One Act Play Festival. You made it an absolutely cracking week's theatre. Diversity, courage, comedy, tremendous energy and creativity all came to the fore. The other big plus was that this year saw the largest number of entries into the original play section which is always encouraging.

Huge thanks to our adjudicator Martin Paul Roche, like Carmel last year, he had some massively difficult choices to make, the bar was very high. However, we've heard from him today so he's survived......

Huge thanks to to CHADs Theatre for allowing us to invade their theatre and for all their help.

The list of winners is here.

We will be in touch in early September with full details of next year's Festival.

Many thanks
Paul Cohen - One Act Festival Secretary

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday 14th August 7.30pm

Actors required for Student Film

Hi there,

I am an MA film student at University of the Arts London, embarking on production on our final graduation film ‘An Estuary’.

This is the first ever Film Masters course at the university, and so we are breaking new ground and making films at an even higher level than our amazing BA course.

Though technically still students, the eight of us are looking to make a high-quality, industry standard film that will break into the international film festival circuit. We are all accomplished young filmmakers with experience working in the industry and already have over 20 titles between us.

Specifically, we need some help finding featured supporting actor casting... We are after a married couple (here’s the casting call)

'Looking for two people to portray a married couple who are seen both arguing and enjoying each other’s company in the same bizarre evening.’

It would be an expenses only (unfortunately) couple of hours shooting in Oxford city centre in the evening of either 21st/22nd June.

If anyone is interested please contact me.

Voluntary actors required

Hi,

My name is Amanda Hart, author of the memoirs, The Guys Upstairs.

We currently have a campaign created and supported by many people to take the book (which has been adapted to a screenplay) to the big screen.

We're currently looking for actors of varying ages who would love to volunteer for some short video film shooting for YouTube.

This is a voluntary project, aiming to create 4 short 3 minute videos which is backed by Information TV http://www.information.tv/.

All actors and narrators that we currently have are involved with a view that this will give them exposure and a chance to be involved in a viral social media campaign which is linked with TV work on Sky, the book and a film adaptation of the book.

As we have a strict deadline, we would need you to get in touch with us asap to let us know if you know of anyone who would be interested in a day or so of filming within the next few weeks.

We are currently looking for a male role (around 42) who can play the role of Lewis Collins (the actor), a 19 year old female, preferably a brunette with mid to long hair and another male around 42 (with dark hair).

We also need two late 20's, early 30's females (1 needs to have similar dark longish hair).

If you feel that you can help in any way then we would very much appreciate this as we're reaching out to give as many local people the opportunity to be involved.

I look forward to hearing from you.

With best wishes

Amanda Hart

1930's themed silent fantasy drama project

I am currently writing, producing and directing a 1930's themed silent fantasy drama project as part of a course, also with an original soundtrack. I would like to ask if some drama group website members would be interested in participating as actors in the film at a location in central Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk? I will need two couples- female and male, one couple of which will star as the leading lady and man. In addition, I require three people - two males and one female to act as the leading man's friends, as well as a big band jazz group consisting of brass players, a bass player, a piano player, a jazz guitar player and a drummer, including 40 or more people willing to act as crowd extras.

It would be invaluable if all actors, but particularly for the leading actors to have experience of either swing, jazz, or tap dancing, as well as a great interest and preferably acting experience in the silent film style. Experience is not absolutely essential but great enthusiasm to take part and a passion for the 1930's era, including the music, dancing, dancing, fashion and culture that was a major part of this era is very important for all actors to possess, as well as some knowledge and love of Charlie Chaplin's film style, Fred Astaire's films, classic retro musicals and the style of Michael Jackson's music videos and live performances of his songs Smooth Criminal and Dangerous which have inspired this film. I will send further information regarding the film, including the storyline on the confirmation of the actors participation. I would really appreciate if some would be able to take part. I can be contacted on either by email or the methods below.

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

CASTING OPPORTUNITY FOR FEATURE FILM

We are a casting company for film and television called 'Des Hamilton Casting'. Our previous work includes 'Bronson' (Tom Hardy), 'War Machine' (Brad Pitt) and 'Only God Forgives' (Ryan Gosling) for more examples of our work please visit our website.

Just to give you some background, we are well known within the industry for our unorthodox methods of casting, often visiting community centres and drama groups etc. when casting for films, rather than going via the traditional actor/agent route. Therefore, I cannot stress enough that NO PREVIOUS PROFESSIONAL ACTING EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY.

We are currently casting for a FEATURE FILM by a renowned Australian director.
We are looking for A MAN IN HIS LATE TEENS TO EARLY 20's to play the lead role. The director is particularly interested in seeing boxers or people with that physique.

Anyone who fits the brief and is interested in this project should email assistant@deshamilton.com with a photograph. We would really appreciate it if you could circulate this exciting opportunity to as many people as possible. I have attached a flyer which can be printed or posted on social media.

For more information on the company please visit www.deshamilton.com
Thanks,

Casting Call for Studio Musical!

Hi there!

I'm a third year TV Production student at Bournemouth University and I'm currently producing a 20 minute studio based comedy musical for my final project. I was wondering if you could send this round to members of your theatre course? The shoot dates are the 24th - 26th May, but the actors will be needed for one or two days next week to pre-record the songs.

The songs will be professionally recorded in a Foley studio and the actors will receive copies of the final show, I am also available to edit together showreels as a thank you! Due to the fact that this is a student production, I have a very limited budget so will not be able to pay the actors, but food will be provided on the shoot days and they will also receive a small budget to pick out costumes for their characters.

I am looking to cast 7 characters, 1 male and 6 female. All need to be able to sing and must look like they are in their late teens.

Casting Call
All characters must look between 16-18 years old, and be able to do an American accent.
Each character also features on at least one song, listed below.
Blair - Loud, unapologetic and brutally honest. Dreams of making it big in Hollywood. -
Rachel Berry from Glee?
Heather - Always spaced out, not very smart. Very good at martial arts though. - Karen from Mean Girls/ Brittany from Glee?
Heather (2) - Desperately tries to befriend the girls, but they’re never nice to her. - like Lavender Brown from Harry Potter but evil?
Carrie - Cautious, very intelligent, so much so that she can sometimes come across pretentious. - Felicity from Arrow/ Quinn from Glee
Tiffany - Popularity is everything. Gretchen Weiners from Mean Girls/ Santana from Glee?
Lillith - Constantly picked on, mainly by Heather. Clumsy but sweet. - like Charlotte from
Geordie Shore?
Freddy - Tiffany’s creepy older brother. Goes to the same school as the girls. - like Kilgrave from Jessica Jones

Songs:
Everyone’s Invited - upbeat pop song ft. Blair, Heather, Carrie, Tiffany, Lillith
Ode to a Pretty Girl - slow, creepy song ft. Freddy
(Whodunnit song) - fast paced spoken word, a bit like Your Fault from Into The Woods, ft.
Freddy, Blair, Heather, Heather (2), Carrie, Tiffany
Confessional - starts off slow then turns into power ballad, ft. Heather (2)

If anyone wants more information about the project then feel free to email me at milah3000@hotmail.co.uk!

CASTING CALL: Multiple Roles for Brighton Based Feature Film

Nightwaves

Nightwaves

I am casting several roles for a feature length film Nightwaves directed by David Irons who sold his first feature at Cannes last year.
The film will be shot in mainly in Brighton. The project currently is expenses only. However, we are in the process of securing funding, and some requires actors to be onboard.
Many thanks,
Rebecca

Character Briefs

KIRSTEN [ FEMALE LEAD, AGED: 18-25, LONDON/SOUTHERN UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Kirsten is intelligent strong but gentle ex-¬-model who quits the industry after being pushed too far by an unruly client. She moves to Brighton to join her cousin Simone and concentrate on her illustrating work away from the banal modeling world which she has grown to despise. However, something in the sea has been waiting for her…

SIMONE [FEMALE LEAD, 18-30, LONDON/SOUTHERN UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Simone (Kirsten cousin and Geena’s girlfriend) is independent, strong willed, loud-mouthed and often abrasive, although she has soft-¬-spots for her favorite cousin Kirsten and long-term girlfriend, Geena. Simone works as a designer in Brighton running her own business of designing and crafting neon signs. Instead, she is dragged into a world of nightmare, shadowed by the creatures from beneath the sea.

GEENA [SUPPORT FEMALE, AGE 18-30, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Geena is Simone's dependent and bratty girlfriend. She’s a tease who gets through life on flirtatious behavior and the philosophy that playing dumb will get you out of everything.

MICKEY [SUPPORT MALE, AGE 18-20, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Mickey is the introverted, troubled young man who works as a janitor in Simone's apartment building. He is an upbeat depressive with a dry wit and realistic look at the world. He has an eye for the girls not that he has the confidence to do anything about it.

CHARLEY [ SUPPORT FEMALE, AGE, 18-25, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY]
Charley is a girl who has just found her voice and is ready to up and leaves her abusive boyfriend, Darren. Once a victim she is now hard headed and independent, beginning to take steps into a new life, one that may not last very long.

DARREN [ SUPPORT MALE, AGE, 25-35, UK ACCENT, ANY ETHNICITY)
Charley’s loud, obnoxious and abusive boyfriend. Darren is more interested in his car and other girls that his relationship with Charley, he is oblivious to her recent transformation.
Note: there are no sides for Darren so, please send in your headshot and link to your show reel if you have one.

About the film
Nightwaves: A gothic neon noir horror story. Imagine H.P Lovecraft painted by Patrick Nagel.

A kind of a cross between the Argento/Bava Demons.

It Follows with a dash of The Neon Demon mixed with Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Blood Beach. Mixing a stylish blend of night skies and seaside neon, with a soundtrack of haunting eerie saxophone and dark synth pads.

About us
Director David Irons is a Brighton based photographer, author, and director who sold his first feature Cassette at Cannes last year. You can see more of David’s work on his website www.metropolfilms.com.
Actress Lucy Drive has worked on many international films and TV shows. Lucy will play the support role of Melissa, the clairvoyant, view Lucy’s full credits IMDB http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2635051/
Assistant to the director Rebecca Lunato has assisted directors on varied projects including assistant producing several films for NOWNESS and is currently producing a short film supported by the BFI.

About the job
We are in the process of applying for funding and will ensure this job is at least all expenses paid job we are aiming for NFTS / Equity minimum. However, we would like applicants to be interested enough in being part of the project to be flexible to the idea of this changing.
Our aim is to film in the summer July/ August, but this does depend on when we get the funding so it is possible the shoot would be next Spring/Summer. The shoot will run for around 14 days of filming for leads and 5-¬- 10 days for support actors.
We will be making a short to help gain funding using a scene starring DARREN AND CHARLEY to be shot early June over one evening in Brighton.

How to apply
Please upload your self-¬-tape to a private Vimeo/YouTube link and email rebeccalunato@gmail.com with access information by Monday 15th May by 5 pm at the latest. Send an email to let us know we can be expecting your tape.
Film yourself in medium shot or medium close-up shot to ensure we can see your face clearly. You do not need to be totally off-book, so you can use the script for reference.
We will be in contacted shortly if you are invited to an in person recall in Brighton/ London depending on your location.
Note: You are welcome to tape for more than one character or in pairs if you know of other actors who are suitable/interested in the project.

Sides:
GEENA MICKEY

NATIONAL THEATRE CASTING OPPORTUNITY

Filming in May 2017

My name is Rosemary and I am an Associate Director at the National Theatre. I have a casting opportunity that may be of interest.

We are currently touring with our production of 'My Country, a work in progress' which will be playing at The Birmingham Rep from the 16th-20th of May. In the days following the Brexit vote, a team from the National Theatre spoke to people nationwide, aged 9 to 97, to hear their views on the country we call home. In a series of deeply personal interviews, they heard opinions that were honest, emotional, funny, and sometimes extreme. My Country puts their words centre stage.

These real testimonials are interwoven with speeches from party leaders of the time in this groundbreaking new play by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and Artistic Director of The National Theatre Rufus Norris.
While we are in Birmingham we will begin work on the film version of the play, which is being created for BBC2 by Cuba Pictures directed by Rufus Norris. In addition to the 7 actor from the stage version, we are looking for 48 background actors to feature in the film. We need to find a broad range of performers, from 18-97(!), from all backgrounds and of all ethnicities. Performers will be featured closely in the film as the real people who gave interviews for the project, however these are non-speaking roles.
No experience is necessary, but you will need an interest and passion for drama and/or film, a positive attitude and some patience!

The filming will take place over 3 days from the 16th-18th of May and you will need to be available for all 3 days and provide your own transportation to the filming location (or the nearest public transport stop).This is a paid opportunity.

Those who are available for the dates above can apply by Thursday 4th May simply by sending an email with their name, age, contact phone number and a recent photograph to mycountrycasting@gmail.com.

Mystery Play in Bolton Priory

Dear Yorkshire Drama Groups

I'm contacting you on behalf of Bolton Abbey Players with 2 messages /news items.

1. We are staging the Mystery Play in Bolton Priory and in the nearby ruins this July (8th & 9th), and we are looking for players. The Mystery Play (formerly the Pageant) has a long history, and is staged once every two years. It's a simple but moving story of the adult life of Christ in 11 scenes which moves around the ruins and begins and ends in the church.

You don't have to be a churchgoer or a Christian to take part, and in fact many who do aren't. It is planned to begin rehearsals in May. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch - joanna.craven@btinternet.com.

2. Secondly, Are you interested in starting a drama group, but short on resources? We are based in a venue with a stage, rehearsal space, a good wardrobe stock, catering facilities, car park and starting funds for an enthusiastic leader.
Bolton Abbey Drama Group began as an energetic and thriving community of adults and children, Although we continue to stage the Bolton Priory Mystery Play, we are now hoping to find a volunteer who can re-establish the tradition of a yearly pantomime and regular productions.

We don't want our resources to go to waste, and particularly, the opportunities they offer to bring together the small communities of Lower Wharfedale.

If you or someone you know is interested , please get in touch. Contact joanna.craven@btinternet.com

Kind regards
Jo Craven

Casting Call

I'm Sophie, the Producer of a short student Film at Westminster Film School called 'Midnight Kebab.' This is a black comedy revolving around an accidental murder of a customer in a local kebab shop, and although very funny it is also heartwarming, with themes of unlikely friendship and teen struggles/family themes.

Synopsis: Mert works in his family owned kebab shop one night. After denying his daughter Rabia's request to go out to a party he begins a late night shift by himself. He serves 3 teenagers, Felix, Ike and Jamie, as well as a rude drunken man. After receiving several words of abuse from the drunken man, Mert turns around in a state of frustration and accidentally kills him with his carving knife. Throughout the night the teenagers help Mert to dispose of the body but none of their plans seem to work.. One of the teens, Jamie, comes up with the idea to disguise the dead customer as kebab meat. They return to the kebab shop, cut up the customer and leave. The following night, Mert enters his shop only to notice that his employee has unknowingly assembled the human body on the kebab skewer, which is being served as doner meat. Mert keeps quiet and drives Rabia to a party where he happens to see Charlie, Jamie and Ike,and gives them a knowing wave.

We are on the lookout for some talented young actors aged 18+ for three of the roles: 'Ike' (Male, 18-21), 'Jamie' (Female, 18-21) and 'Felix' (Male, 18-21) (University age).

Also, we are searching for talented Turkish/middle eastern actors for the lead part of 'Mert' (Male, 40+), Rabia (18-21) and 'Zeynep' (30+).

Further, we have a part available for that of the 'drunken man', who gets accidentally killed by Mert when being verbally abusive, and a policeman of any age and nationality.

Unfortunately this would be an unpaid job due to it being an on course filmbut we would pay any travel expenses within London and catering would be provided, along with a DVD and online copy of the film, stills from production and of course this is fully credited. We will be submitting to festivals where our films at Westminster Film School do very well so this would also be great exposure and showreel material, and shooting in 2K on Arri Alexa, with professional lighting, grading and mixing.

I can send the script on request. The shoot is May 8th-13th with one day (flexible) of rehearsals the week beforehand.

My email is sophiehadleyfilm@gmail.com, please get in touch if you are interested!
Best wishes,
Sophie Hadley

Waddesdon WI in desperate need of help

Waddesdon WI are hosting a small production of a murder mystery called "OVER MY DEAD BODY". We have made up most of the cast from local amateur actors which is fantastic! We are however struggling to fill the role of Roger, the dearly beloved future husband (if the pot of gold is large enough) of the young innocent Daphnia. The characters age range is ideally around 21 to 28, and he is rather a rogue with a very dubious nature! However age can be outside this as long as they are willing. We know this is a big ask but we wondered if you knew of any keen actor who would be willing to play this pivotal role? We know the notice is short to say the least (we had the role filled but unfortunately they have had to pull out and we are left in rather a pickle).

My contact phone number is 07704294143. We are meeting on Thursday evening as a group for a practice and we could get the script to anyone interested as soon as possible.

The date of the performance is Saturday 22nd April (just the one date) so we are cutting it close to the mark! We are in Waddesdon village near Aylesbury Buckinghamshire- post code HP18 0JD and the performance will start at 7.30pm although we can have the hall from 5pm to practice. We have some dates in our diaries for rehearsal but can pass that onto anyone in person and find times to suit. The play isn't long - around 20 minutes then there will be opportunity for the audience to ask the cast questions to guess who the is guilty.

As you are probably aware Waddesdon WI is a registered charity and this is a fundraiser so unfortunately we can only offer our deepest thanks as reward to any fellow actors you may find, along with a lot of fun and friendship.

Yours rather desperately

PANTO PARTY NIGHTS...


Fancy working with a former bluecoat entertainer? Want to raise money for your group? If so read on! I’ve had a meeting with a local social club and instead of forming a panto company I’m keen to work with an established group.

“Christmas is coming the Goose was rather fat, for Panto Party Nights just call Matt”

At Christmas time many companies have Christmas do’s and I thought it would be a great idea to have an evening where they could eat, drink, dance AND see a panto! (a shortened version) I want the panto to be educational (they’ll be heard to mutter on the way out ‘that taught me a lesson!) seriously I want them to say that it was a fun night out, very professional and great value for money!

The pantomime that I have penned is Cinderella (In my opinion THE best pantomime) and it’s a shortened version but it has all the essential ‘ingredients’ singing, dancing and comedy and during the ballroom scene the audience could be guests at the ball! It could work in a similar way to a murder mystery (scenes in between courses) or after the meal.

I envisage us holding two possibly three panto party nights at a local Social Club- Dec 1st/2nd or 8/9 or 15/16. (It’s a totally unique idea, will require promoting, people committing their time and we want a Full House!)
To promote the night I was thinking of possibly a launch at the club for the press? They could take pictures, meet the cast, see a snippet of the show and run an article about us! We would also need to promote it via social media, posters etc.

I'm based in Kings Heath and the party nights will be in south Birmingham.

These are my thoughts/ramblings and I hope you like the idea, If so I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you all and answer any questions that you may have..Oh yes I would!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Matt Franks

In Need of Actors

I am a film student looking for a small group of actors who would be willing to act in a narrative film I am currently making.

The film is a short comedy drama about a man who finds himself stuck after unknowingly causing an affair between a dysfunctional couple. I need three actors: Toby a 26-31 year old man, with a light build, Jemma a 30-35 year old woman: Brown hair. And Daniel a 30-40 year old man, tall, slightly out of shape. There is no nudity, but there will be scenes for Toby and Jemma in underwear. Anyone who gets in touch with me directly will get a copy of the script.

I am located in Bournemouth and the shoot will go on in the city. I am still working on getting the location.

The dates of the shoot will be within the 24th of April to the 5th of March.

I am willing to pay expenses. But obviously I am a student and won't be able to spend too much.

They will receive a copy of the finished film for their portfolio.

Far from being gloomy, death can be a very life enhancing subject.

This is a free ticketed event being held at Becket Keys Church of England School, Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood at 7.30pm on Friday 12th May. The show runs for 90 minutes without interval and refreshments will be available.

Please support us by sharing this event with all interested parties. It may be of particular interest to your Religious Studies students.

Jane Bennett
Director

Friday May 12th ‘OUTSIDE THE BOX - A Live Show about Death’

Becket Keys Church of England School, Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood, 7.30PM

Written and performed by Liz Rothschild and Directed by Jo Bousfield

WARNING: THIS SHOW MIGHT CHANGE YOUR LIFE ...AND YOUR DEATH

Liz is a performer, celebrant and award winning burial ground owner. Her unique insights and experiences have created a highly original and beautifully cathartic show, combining mercurial tales and miraculous truths, collected over the years from life’s finishing line.

Funny, wise and taboo busting; Outside The Box confronts the 'Elephant in the room' with grace and humour, asking its audience to embrace mortality and look on the bright side of life, with a weave of untold and surprising stories, a hint of history and some pithy commentary on the funeral industry (from one who knows!).

Reviews

“A remarkably refreshing and important show, gently dancing on the line between playful irreverence and necessary solemnity” Broadway Baby, Edinburgh Festival 2016

“I’d like to see it performed in every Fringe Festival and every village hall in the UK!” Zelah Senior, Brighton Fringe 2016

This is a free ticketed event sponsored by Bennetts Funerals. For tickets please call Bridget or Lucienne at Bennetts on 01277 210104/627492. The show runs for 90 minutes without interval. Refreshments will be available.

The Resort - Prime-Time ITV1 New Doc.

My name is Simon Warrington and I work for Spun Gold TV. We are one of the UK’s top TV companies, producing for BBC, ITV, C4, SKY and Channel Five. We always work hand in hand with our contributors - and testimony to that, are programmes we have made with the British Royal Family: such as, “All The Queen’s Horses” “Prince William In Africa, “The Duke At 90” and “When Ant And Dec Met The Prince”(celebrating 40 years of the Prince’s Trust). I only mention this to illustrate how trusted we are at the very highest level.

We are producing a brand new documentary, prime-time ITV1, 9pm and we are looking to take plus-size individuals to ‘The Resort’ – a Plus-Size only hotel in the beautiful Bahamas. The resort isn’t a weight loss retreat, or reality TV show. It is for plus-size individuals who (some for the first time) can go on holiday away from judgemental eyes, horrible comments and just have a wonderful time. We think everyone deserves a chance to enjoy themselves. It will be an empowering documentary and we hope these individuals we take something away from the holiday: confidence, taking their top off at the beach for the first time, being able to fit on the aeroplane seat.

However, we need a mix of personalities, especially men who are confident with their size and don’t let it hold them back and I wanted to see if there was anyone within am dram groups you could you knew or could recommend? The dates are April 2nd – April 9th.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Simon.

Extra's Needed

Hi there,

My name is Kieron Grist and I'm a producer based in Cheltenham at the University of Gloucestershire.

We are creating a short film (5-7 minutes) which is based a few years in the future around a woman who takes advantage of future dating technology to build a relationship with someone who doesn't know that she exists.

The dating technology resolves around an app where the human user (referred to as Alpha) can have an android (referred to as Beta) sent to them which is made up of their online appearance (through photo's) and online behaviour and personality. The user can date other people's Beta's so the first date can happen without any awkwardness that can happen between two humans on a first date. If the date goes well, the Beta's Alpha can then go on dates with the user.

The film is based in Cheltenham, with six out of our four scenes are set within a restaurant, and we are looking for people/extras between the ages of 25-55 to fill the restaurant as diners, as well as one waiter. The work is unpaid but we will have food and drinks available on set.

We are looking to shoot on the 3rd and 4th of April.
If you are able to help us then please feel free to email me.

Many thanks,
Kieron

I am hoping that some individuals from one of your drama groups would be willing and able to act in our short film.

Attached is the film script. Click here

Apologises for the lateness of this email, but we are really hoping that you can help us out ,given such short notice.

Collaboration - MA student at NUA

Hi, my name is Gudbjorg Ylfa and I'm currently studying at Norwich University of the Arts. I'm doing my masters in Photography and for my current project I am researching cultural differences within folklore and fairy tales. I am wondering if you had any people that would be interested in collaborating with me, I'm in need of models/muas/stylists. I will be doing some moving image as well as photographing my shoots so it would be very good to have someone that is interested in acting.

A brief introduction to my project:

I am researching the cultural differences within folklore and fairytales, this project is a continuation from my first term of my MA where I looked at Icelandic folklore stories and lullabies and looked at the history of them. It got me interested in how much fairy tales and folklore affect us, both as children and grown ups. I have sent out questionnaires to international people that I know and I am hoping to get a few stories from other countries to see how different they are (from country to country). So right now I can't say what kind of shoots I will definitely be doing (as I have just sent out the questionnaire) but the whole aesthetics of the shoot will be quite dreamlike, ethereal, a bit eerie and uncanny (as fairytales/folklore stories usually are).

I am based in Norwich and would like to work in or around Norwich. I would not be able to pay so this would be on a TFP basis but you as a drama group could also use these images for you social media, promotions, etc.

If anyone that is interested, please get in touch with me through email gudbjorg.jensdottir@student.nua.ac.uk and you can also see some of my previous works on www.gudbjorgylfa.com

Best regards,

BBC2: The Big Life Fix With Simon Reeve


Big Life Fix

Hi,

I’m writing to you from Studio Lambert, the BAFTA-winning TV production company behind Gogglebox, The Great Interior Design Challenge and Doctor in the House.

We are currently producing the second series of the hit BBC Two show “Big Life Fix”, an exciting and innovative science series that sees a skilled team of scientists, engineers and designers create bespoke technology for individuals and groups to transform their lives for the better.

In the first series, our team came up with solutions for a range of issues affecting individuals and communities, including creating a device to counter the effects of Parkinson’s disease for a young graphic designer, building a bicycle for a boy born with no hands or feet, and connecting a remote village in Wales up to the internet.

If you’re not familiar with the show, here is a short clip which should hopefully illustrate the premise and tone of the series: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jylxm

For the second series we are again looking for more people who feel they could benefit from a tailor-made invention. We are looking for individuals who can’t do something which we believe everyone should have the opportunity to do (like being able to write your own name). We also want to include stories about people whose condition or situation prevents them from doing something they love or used to love doing (like riding a bike). Essentially, we’re looking to help anyone who thinks their life (or someone’s they know) could be improved by our brilliant fix team of engineers and inventors and we wondered whether there’s anything our team could design to benefit anyone connected to your group?

If anyone is interested in applying, they can call the casting team on 0203 040 6908 or email us at biglifefix@studiolambert.com. All calls are treated in the strictest of confidence. Alternatively, a short contact form can be filled out here to express interest in the show: www.studiolambert.com/take-part-the-big-life-fix.html

Best wishes,

Comedy Central - Pilot (Real life Couples needed)


Hook Up

Hi there,
I’m working on a pilot for Comedy Central and am looking for Real Life couples to take part in the show and share their stories on how they met. The more interesting stories the better.

At the moment I am focusing on getting the real-life couples and would like people that are good on camera and can improvise. I would like to speak with any couples that would be happy to discuss their relationship on camera?

There will be a fee involved and we would need the couple for 1 day between 27th March-7th April.

All the best,

Charlotte

Short Film

Hello,

My name is Brieana and I'm a third year student at MMU studying Film and Media. I'm trying to put my graduate film together at the moment and I'm in need of a few actors that might interested in taking part in my short film / coming-of-age drama. The planned shooting dates are for the 5th-9th of March and will take place in the afternoon and evening.

The basic premise of the story is that a group of friends come together for a dinner party one evening, however the moment the first guest arrives everything starts going wrong.

The roles we need to fill are:
- Klaire (protagonist)
Klaire is 22. Now at the end of her Event Management degree she begins to question whether the path she has chosen is the right one for her. Always trying to control and make a situation perfect, she is the most vulnerable, sensitive and doubtful of her friend group.
- Jonny
Jonny is 22. Seemingly intelligent but turns out to be a bit of a jerk. He’s out to impress even if that means making his pal the butt of the joke.
- Zoe (minor)
Zoe is 19, and Jonny’s new younger girlfriend. A first year student who is too sweet and naive to see through Jonny’s confident facade.

Location: West Didsbury

Kind regards

Fusion 2017- Saturday 4th of March event

Hello

As discussed in the last Fusion Meeting there will be a month of various cultural activities that will take place in March 2017. Part of the calendar was to hold a large scale weekend event on the 4th and 5th of March.

We will be holding a large scale event on the 4th of March in Llanelli Town Centre, where we have arranged a large variety of activities, entertainers and cultural initiatives; all based strongly on the theme of Welsh culture!

We were wondering if any performers would like to be involved in the day (Saturday the 4th of March)? Potentially to practice some upcoming shows/ performances while gaining community promotion for it.

We would be grateful for any singing/ dancing/ performances or any other type of performances that may be on offer.

Please could you let me know asap.

Local Casting Call

Voluntary actors wanted for 8-10 minute student film. Expenses, such as food and travel paid. Free copy of the finished film will be provided.

PLOT:
Two men wake up in a room, handcuffed to a table. Neither has any memory of how they got there, between them sits a gun containing one bullet in a sick game with human life. The two men must try to find a way of escape before realising their only solution is for one of them to die.
A psychologically complex story which throws our own morals into question. An excellent opportunity for actors to get work on their show reel and display range and depth.

ROLES:
Levi – Male, 25-40, any races or accents accepted.
The older and more mature of the two. On first appearances Levi seems much calmer and more willing to try and talk through the situation. However, as the story progresses his backstory becomes more and more vague and the audience is never truly sure of his intentions.
In the end, after Nev reaches for the gun, Levi is able to talk him down, only to then reach for the gun himself.

Nev – Male, 18-26, any races or accents accepted.
The younger of the pair. Nev is much more stand-offish to begin with, never quite able to trust Levi. As the film progresses Nev becomes more and more sur that Levi is attempting to manipulate him and take the gun for himself, leading Nev to take the gun in a blind panic; however, his religious beliefs stop him from being able to use it and he is eventually manipulated by Levi.

We will be filming locally in Lincolnshire on the 21st, 23rd, and 28th of February and the 2nd of March.

Volunteers for Awareness Stunt on Refugee Girls

Hi,

Plan International Ireland are holding an awareness stunt on Refugee Girls and the barriers they face- including child marriage, gender based violence and denial of education in the style of a mannequin challenge/flash mob stunt.

We need 10-15 men who would be willing to volunteer for the child marriage part of the stunt- these men will stand in front of the child brides in suits. It is to highlight that refugee girls are often forced to marry young for safety and their life is often on hold as a refugee.

Are there any volunteers who could come along next Wednesday 22nd February 8am-9.30am on South King Street and take part in the stunt?

Volunteers would be wearing suits/shirt and ties as well as volunteers who would be wearing normal clothes.

Please let me know if you would like to be involved.

It would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me

Kindest Regards

Wintershall Choir


Wintershall Nativity

Do you enjoy singing? Do you have an inner thespian that’s itching to strut the stage?
Then you might like to consider joining the Wintershall Choir.


You may have heard of the Wintershall Nativity play—it runs every year on the beautiful Wintershall Estate on the outskirts of Bramley. Thousands of people come to see the play each year and the other biblical plays that Wintershall puts on throughout the year, including a Passion play that goes up to Trafalgar Square.

Now for the first year, instead of hiring a choir to sing in the Nativity play we are growing one from scratch.

It is open to those of all faiths and none.

We sing a broad range of music throughout the year, from popular songs with a thoughtful message and fun songs from the musicals, to sacred classical music and gospel, and in the Autumn term we focus on music for the Nativity play.

I would love to welcome enthusiastic singers to join the Wintershall Choir where I provide direction on singing technique. There are opportunities for soloists. I provide recorded rehearsal files as well as scores, so don’t be put off if you can’t read music, but it’s important to be able to sing in harmony. Perhaps you don’t know if you can do this yet—come along and find out!

The choir runs from 6.30pm (for tea, biscuits and chat) with the rehearsal starting at 7pm and ending at 8.30pm. Latecomers are very welcome!

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Rachel

World theatre day - I´m collecting film clips from amateur theatres!

My name is Josefine Andersson and I live in Lund, Sweden. I am highly active within amateur theatre in Malmö through Malmö Amatuer theatre Forum (MAF, member of SAR who is a member of AITA/IATA).

In March there are two big happenings coming up that involvs amateur theatre. Malmö city arrange a Theatre Day (Teaterns Dag) and every theatre group or organisation can join and share their agenda and events. I have a plan to celebrate the other big happening, WTD, that day by a "movie collage". In detail I am aiming to collect movie clips (2-5 minutes, mobile movies works fine) from amatuer theatres all over the world and show them. Preferably show current or future works, or a rehearsal or something else groups want to share. Along with that also present a short presentation about the participating groups for the visitors to take part of. A way to let the world of theatre groups say "hi" to the hundreds of visiters that day.

The movie collage will be put up in one of the rooms at MAF (the umbrella organisation for amatuer theatres in Malmö)

If anyone would like to be involved please contact Josefine via josefineandersson2014@gmail.com

PTerry's Theatre Month 2018

April 2018 would have seen Sir Terry Pratchett's 70th birthday. He had a well-known connection with the theatre, and so to celebrate, why not put on a play? Local theatre companies around the world can use this month to stage any Discworld play, in a great big celebration and commemoration of Sir Terry's life and work.

I discussed the idea with Colin Smythe (Terry's agent) at the Discworld Convention 2016, and he said it was a good one, go for it. So here we are, going for it. Let everybody know, and book the performance slot at the next planning meeting at your local theatre group!

PTerry's birthday was on the 28th of April, but this event is planned to run for the whole month, because a) theatres have different regular performance slots, and b) if everywhere did a Discworld play all at the same time, people would need a teleporter and a time machine to see more than one. And people will want to see more than one - the Discworld books are massively popular, and a performance of a Discworld play is highly likely to sell out.

This event has a facebook event page (TinyURL tinyurl.com/h2qydyr). I am more-co-ordinating-than-organising this, and if you have any questions about the event you can contact me at pterry.theatre2018@sabremeister.me.uk Any questions regarding putting on the plays need to be addressed to Colin Smythe at info@colinsmythe.co.uk

If you want to take part in this, please remember that you need to contact Colin Smythe for permission, and copies of the script you want to perform can be obtained from the publishers (detailed at discworldmonthly.co.uk/playrequests.php).
If you do produce something for this event, please let me know, either by email or on the facebook page, and it will be recorded here for posterity.

This is an entirely non-profit event, organised for the sole purpose of commemorating and celebrating the works of Sir Terry Pratchett, Kt OBE.

The Stoats Web Series

We are a production team from Norwich looking for actors to be in our Web Series. The web series about a 5 a side football team and their struggles. It is a character-driven comedy and so we are looking for actors who are able to really get in touch with our characters and bring them to life.

We have 3 roles which need filling so far:

Arthur Dickens (Actor Age range 50 - 70)
Age: 72
Elderly Arty is Scrimpton ’s oldest football player who is blissfully unaware of his age. He is the substitute of always absent Jeremy. Not officially part of the team’s line up, but hopes to be given a permanent position sometime soon! Poor Arty is always 5 steps behind everyone and due to his poor eyesight, he can barely tell who is on his team. But hey, at least he’s got a good attitude. It must be hard to keep up.

Brian Carson (Actor Age range 40 - 55)
Age: 50
Alcoholic, depressed and lazy, it’s hard to believe Brian was once Scrimpton’s best striker. Today however, Brian isn’t really bothered with the club’s progress. He’s just in it for the round of drinks after each game. The Scrimpton Stoats new manager.

Shane Madden (Actor Age range 25 - 35)
Age: 32
Arrogant, hot- tempered thinks he’s the best player in the world, in actual fact; kinda crap at it. Makes really bad ‘inspirational speeches’. The only reason he is captain is because no one else wanted the job.
The actor ages are just guidelines and we are interested in getting in contact with anyone who thinks they can pull off the part.

I have attached a copy of the script. We will be covering catering and travel costs, however, the roles otherwise remain unpaid. Production dates are the 25th and 26th of January, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of February. The shooting days may vary for each character but as it stands we will need all 3 characters for all 5 days. The shoots will be full days, field and changing rooms scenes will take place in Cromer, and the pub scenes will take place in the centre of Norwich.

LET IT SHINE

Have you ever watched any TV talent show and thought, “I could do that!”, but haven’t the time, energy or opportunity to follow it through? If you think you could be “born to perform”, don’t despair as we may have the answer for you. The Stockton Foresters, one of the best (and we’re being modest) drama groups in the York area are looking for new members. We are a very successful, well equipped and financed group, enjoying packed houses for every production. With an unbroken record of annual shows for over 70 years, we are always looking for new blood evolving as older members move on, and welcoming new talent with open arms.
We are in the process of choosing a script for our next production and are looking for actors of either sex, directors ( experienced or aspiring) and back stage crew, including lightling, set design and wardrobe etc. Whatever your talents, aspirations or experience we would welcome you to our friendly, social club where we harbour “no stars”. We choose our scripts democratically and do not expect more commitment than a weekly rehearsal for performers.
We present our shows in a totally unique way, seating our audiences cabaret style, with a running wine and juice bar and serving a supper in the interval. Combined with an excellent performance, its an experience our audiences really appreciate.
We also lead a friendly social life with the odd dinner or party as well as the inevitable after-show parties, and trips to the village pub.
If you are even slightly interested, with no wish to commit, why not contact us now, while we are in the planning stage of our next production? We meet on Tuesday evenings at 7.30pm in the modern and well equipped Village Hall in the delightful village of Stockton on the Forest (which is just 3 miles out of York).
If you would like more details or a friendly face to accompany you, just call our wonderful secretary Pat Jennings on 01904 400327, our retiring director John Hall on 01904 400182 our facebook contact Sharon Sawyers /Sharon.Sawyers.37 or take a look at our facebook page : The Stockton Foresters.

Just come along for a taster – you won’t regret it......

Charity Concert with WEST END leads in aid of Nathan a 7yr old boy with a rare brain tumour

I am organising a big charity event at the Orchard Theatre for my Nephew and wondered if you would be able to let your members know about it and perhaps help us to promote the concert?

My nephew Nathan is 7 and has a rare brain tumour called Hypothalamic Harmartoma. It causes him to have multiple seizures daily and is really affecting his daily life. His condition is curable but unfortunately the NHS cannot fund it. We therefore need to raise £100,000 to be able to send him to Texas for treatment. We have reached this target but now need to fund another £50,000 to cover flights, accommodation, extra tests, scans , travel insurance and any added costs we may need when he is out in Texas. We want to be in a position where we can say yes to any treatment Nathan may need.
Nathan was on ITV news a few weeks ago - www.facebook.com/ITVLondon

We are holding a huge fundraising concert for him at the Orchard Theatre on the 12th Feb.

Led by Lyn Paul (new seekers) and with a cast of over 100 including big west end leads from various shows including Mamma Mia, Wicked, Shrek, Blood Brothers, We Will Rock You, Matilda and many more. There is also a 30 piece live professional orchestra led by the current musical director of the UK tour of Blood Brothers. It really will be a spectacular night and all in aid of Nathan. All performers have given their time for free and all ticket money goes straight to Nathan.

We are also running a sponsored seat scheme. Every sponsored seat purchased is donated to Ellenor children's hospice so another sick child can have a fun evening out for Free!

Someone has also agreed to fund match our concert on the 12th Feb up to the value of £20,000. This means that every seat purchased is now worth double. If we can sell out the concert, with the fund matching we can raise in the region of £40,000 in ONE NIGHT!!

Theatre in Education drama at
Coldharbour Mill Woollen Museum, Uffculme, Devon

My name’s Julie Matthews, and I work as Education Co-ordinator at Coldharbour Mill Working Woollen Museum in Uffculme. We run a theatre in education session here, where we invite schools and colleges to spend time in role as prospective Victorian mill workers. We are always interested in volunteer actors who might like to join us.

Volunteers work alongside a professional actor, and school staff. Visits take place during the school term. We are situated fairly rurally, so any prospective volunteer would need their own transport.

If anyone would like to talk to me further, I can be contacted on 01884 840960, or at julierapley@coldharbourmill.org.uk.

Please visit our website at www.coldharbourmill.org.uk

Pantomime 2017

I wonder if anyone could help us.

I work for Rays of Sunshine charity which is a wish granting charity for children with life threatening and life shortening illnesses.

We hold an annual Xmas party - in fact we held this years last week at Citilabs in Manchester. We had over 450 attendees

We have already booked our venue for our 2017 party (saturday 2nd December) and we would like to put on a mini pantomime during this party. Is this something with which you could help us? I think we would be looking at 30 min slot maximum but it is something which we have not done before and we think it would be a fantastic addition to our family fun afternoon.

Many thanks
