a new networking organisation for female playwrights
17percent is a social enterprise which aims to redress the gender imbalance of plays being produced in the UK, by providing women with opportunities to develop as writers, through peer-to-peer networking and educational opportunities, championing women’s achievements in the theatre, promoting female writers and providing positive female role models and inspirations.
We will do this through:
1) Peer to peer education, networking and support: A series of education and networking opportunities including courses, feedback and mentoring.
2) Promotion of female playwrights: To promote the work of female playwrights amongst the UK theatre industry and to audiences, new and existing, through promotion of their work, and education about their work, including the creation of a comprehensive searchable online database of UK female playwrights from Aphra Behn to Polly Stenham. We will instigate a new short festival of plays by women.

Join BROS TC and you won’t regret it. You will become part of a very special society which prides itself on producing high quality shows again and again. Many of us have been members for decades. We have made life-long friends and have relished the opportunity to try our hand at a variety of roles both on stage and behind the scenes.
If you are a performer, do not be afraid to audition for our next production. We always cast at least one, sometimes several, new members in our shows. If you are unsuccessful in your first audition, there are many ways you can be involved in the current show and then try your hand again next time. We have an exciting programme of shows ahead.
People are pleasantly surprised how quickly they become part of the team. If you are lacking in confidence or skill, BROS is a great place to learn and improve: many of our members have professional qualifications/experience to share. If you would like to direct or act as production manager, choreograph or musically direct, we\’d love to hear from you. BROS TC always welcomes new talent.
If you are not a performer, you may like to get stuck in making/sourcing costumes, designing/building set, managing props, sound or publicity. Perhaps you\’d like to be on the stage crew or front of house?
Even if you do none of those things; enjoying our social events, attending some rehearsals and joining the theatre trips are very good reasons alone to join BROS TC.

Carmen-Elektra


 

Contact e.opera@gmail.com or info
Carmen Elektra represents not just an opera company but a whole new approach to the genre.
Our aim is to rehabilitate opera by dispensing of its many cultural and aesthetic trappings and focusing on productions that are relevant to youth and popular cultures as well as the culture of contemporary art music.
To this end, Carmen Elektra has developed the ‘opera clubnight’ - an evening of short, accessible and engaging operas interspersed with DJ sets of multi-genre electronic and experimental music, and inspired by a unique and unconventional performance location.
This format can act as an impetus to re-discover the theatrical potential of familiar or forgotten works for a new venue and a new audience.
The opera clubnight demands creativity and innovation in its production and presentation, whilst simultaneously challenging ideas surrounding genre, performance and society in both performers and audience.
Rather than trying to wring contemporary relevance from a pre-existent repertoire, we focus on alternative, modern works, in English, which will work effectively in unconventional stagings and appeal to young and non-‘initiated’ audiences.
We believe that, of all contemporary art music, it is opera that has the most immediate interdisciplinary appeal and the greatest potential to engage with today’s broader artistic and cultural climate.

Entertaining London for half a century
We are Centre Stage, a central London based theatre company that has been entertaining audiences with musicals and cabarets for almost 50 years. We are looking forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2016!
An amateur society, we first began life as a light opera company in 1966. Since then we have had a few changes in name, focus, and cast but we have kept the same entertaining spirit! A number of people have said that our shows are more 'entertaining' than most professional shows in the West End, but we'll leave that for our audience to decide!
We're also a sociable bunch and many people have met life-long friends - and quite a few partners - in our shows.
We put on two major musical theatre productions a year, at The Bridewell Theatre just off Fleet Street. Our rehearsal venue is currently on Chancery Lane. We also produce a number of smaller cabarets, and hold private masterclasses for our members. And of course, we are famed for our fabulous socials! Recent productions include ‘High Society’, ‘Moby Dick! The Musical’, ‘How To Succeed In Business (without really trying)’, ‘Our House’ and ‘Zanna, Don’t!’..
We will be back at the Bridewell Theatre in June 2014 with our next show Jesus Christ Superstar! We are also performing a cabaret at The Pipeline in February.

Company Three creates a space in which young people can talk to adults, and in which adults will really listen.
Originally formed as Islington Community Theatre in 2008, we are a company of 75 young people aged 11-19. We make theatre through long-term, intensive collaboration between our members and professional theatre-makers.
We're based in Islington, North London, one of the most diverse and unequal boroughs in the UK.
All of our members are nominated or referred to us by local teachers, youth workers and social workers as young people who are particularly likely to benefit from our work.
Our plays are part of ongoing conversation about what it means to be a teenager. We train our members as theatre-makers, helping them to understand themselves and the world around them, and to create work that allows them to express who they are.
We make our plays through a process of research and development, early-stage scratch (experimental performances) and professional productions.
Our work has been seen at the National Theatre, at the Royal Albert Hall, on Channel 4 and the BBC. We do most of our early stage work in London's exceptional youth arts hub, Platform.

Co-Opera


South East London

 

Co-Opera Co. is an innovative opera company which has at its heart the welfare and promotion of professional opera singers and orchestral players in the early stages of their careers, post-graduates nearing the conclusion of their course, budding conductors, directors, répétiteurs and people working towards a career in the technical side of the operatic profession.
Co-Opera Co. was founded by Soprano Kate Flowers and Lighting Designer Paul Need and developed from their realisation that the career path of young singers entering the operatic profession today is severely hampered by the absence of the kind of small prestigious companies which were prevalent in the 1970’s and 80’s. It was possible at that time for singers straight from college to work alongside seasoned professionals, in top class productions in major venues, learning invaluable lessons by watching and working with experienced artists - earning whilst learning. Of course there are still some opportunities for emerging artists to do this but they are rare, and with so many singers entering the market place each year, unfortunately supply is outstripping demand.
So in 2008 Kate and Paul decided they should do something about it. They gathered together over 50 eminent professionals from every area of the profession; all personal friends and all of whom feel passionately that it is their duty to pass on their expertise to the next generation.
Co-Opera Co. was formed. Singers helping singers, musicians helping musicians.

Locations in London and home counties

 

DANCE SHACK was established in September 2006 by Lucy Holloway. She has had 16 years of working professionally in the Musical Theatre business, as a singer/dancer/actress, as well as choreographer and resident director for both touring and West End shows. Dance Shack was an opportunity to pass on her experience to students of all ages.

The school’s aim is to encourage everyone as an individual to gain confidence in performing in the three main areas of dancing, acting, and singing. Through good teaching, grounded in solid technique, a student’s confidence is able to flourish. Every teacher at Dance Shack has been trained at a top performing arts school and, most importantly, will have worked professionally and extensively in the business. THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE AT DANCE SHACK: all our teachers have top-class experience in the professional theatre world. This maintains the highest standards and firmly roots the school in current working practices and gives students an understanding of the “real” performance world.

Dance Shack is also about offering an enjoyable and friendly class where the student can gain confidence in daily life. It is impossible to list here all the ways that dance can help improve a child’s development, from sheer physical stamina, through improved co-ordination and posture to general wellbeing.

All our classes are held in the studios at Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Centre, where the facilities are second to none. There is no need to be a member of Nuffield to join the school.
