Festival Players of Cambridge

Facebook  Twitter  


Cambridge

 

The Cambridge Festival Players, an amateur dramatics and amateur musicals group, welcome anyone interested in joining the society. We work hard to stage quality amateur shows, but have a great time whilst we are doing it. We hold social events for the group all through the year (although most of them are concentrated around the rehearsal and show period), including a small cabaret-style concert, Christmas party, quizzes, annual dinner, the AGM and trips to see other amateur and professional groups.
The society changes a lot from year to year, and varies its director and production team each show. This gives us a fresh feel for every new musical production, and makes the atmosphere in the group friendly and welcoming. In fact the group usually changes around a third of the cast between each production, although this often includes some people who come back after gaps of a year or two. Our auditions policy is also very open-minded, with new members sometimes taking principal roles - enabling us to make use of the best of the amateur dramatics talent in the Cambridge area. The group is made up of members from all over the Cambridgeshire and Essex area. Although we rehearse and perform in Cambridge, society members regularly travel from as far afield as Peterborough, Ely and Saffron Walden.
The group typically performs one major musical show a year, in May or June. New member and principal auditions take place many weeks before the rehearsal period starts. These are in a friendly atmosphere, in front of a small panel of some of the production team and a few other society members. This usually involves singing a song of your choice (for chorus and new member auditions) or singing set songs, reading set lib and perhaps a little dancing for principal auditions.
We have a rehearsal period of around twelve weeks, with rehearsals three times a week (two for chorus and one for principals), at the end of which we stage six performances. These are presently held at the ADC Theatre or the Mumford Theatre, delightful venues based in central Cambridge, seating between 230-270 people, with modern technical facilities.
We perform with a live orchestra made up of some of the best semi-professional musicians in the Cambridge area, and have a back-stage crew of Penguins (the local Cambridge amateur back-stage society), theatre staff, costume, make-up and hair, props, lighting and sound teams.
The group has been very successful over the past few years, performing Cambridgeshire premieres of exciting and challenging shows such as 'Singin' in the Rain', 'Crazy for You' and the newly released musicals, 'Jekyll and Hyde' and 'The Witches of Eastwick'. We have received several accolades for our performances: our 2008 production of 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' and our 2002 production of 'Oklahoma!' won the National Operatics and Dramatics Association (NODA) awards for Best Musical and Best Show in the area. 'Oklahoma' and 'Hello, Dolly!' also secured the Combinations Best Musical award.
If you would like any further information about the group or are interested in joining, please contact us via our website or Twitter page or secretary@festivalplayers.org We will be happy to help!

Girton

 

Girton Operatic is based in the village of Girton near Cambridge and is an active group of singers, musicians and back stage crew.
Girton Operatic was founded in 1989 by a group of enthusiasts, many of whom had children at the village school. The first show was The Gondoliers by W.S.Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan, which was performed in Girton Glebe School Hall in the spring of 1990.
Since that time the group has produced a fully staged production of a musical show (including an orchestra) every year. Other musical events take place during the year- for example a charity concert takes place each summer, usually in the parish church.

If you would like to reserve tickets for our next show please email the Box Office at tickets@girtonoperatic.org.uk
Over the years we have lent items of scenery, staging and props to various "not for profit" oragnisations, such as schools, churches and charities. We usually ask for a small donation towards one of our nominated charities. At the moment these donations are going to the Friends of Girton Glebe.

Kings Cliffe Players


Kings Cliffe, Peterborough

 

The King\s Cliffe Players were born out of a local choir group, the first production was a Music Hall evening, 'An Evening of Edwardiana', in 1986. This was followed by our first Pantomime, 'Dick Whittington' in 1987. Since that time, the group has typically put on 2 productions a year - one in February (usually a pantomime) and one in October (a play), although in recent years, a third production has sometimes been squeezed in during the summer months.
We are an enthusiastic and vibrant group, forming a strong connection with the surrounding area and absorbing a proportion of it - particularly during a pantomime!

LEADA is a part time club for children and young adults based in Wisbech and Fenland. Our classes cover Acting, Performing Arts, Drama games and activities designed to raise self esteem and confidence. We are not a school of Musical Theatre but we provide opportunities to explore ideas through the medium of acting, voice, movement, puppetry, mask and music. Members learn about stage craft in order to turn their stories into plays, which they perform.
Whatever a child's ability or experience they are welcome at LEADA - we will work with each individual child to develop and achieve their own potential.
We also welcome children who are looking for new ways to help increase confidence in school and everyday life. We have lots of girls and boys who have developed huge improvements in confidence through attendance at classes and this can be a great boost in terms of academic achievement in school.
