Anubis Productions - Drama Workshops, Film & Stage - dramaforall
I run Drama Workshops for all ages, groups and communities. For parties, schools, community groups and corporations, for entertainment, education, team and skill building. Workshops for children include, party improvisations and games, Shakespeare, Performance Poetry, Masks, Puppets, Physical Theatre and more...
The workshops can be booked as single one off sessions for parties or schools or a series of work where a significant discount would apply.
The fees range from £70 to £150.00 per session, depending on the workshop booked and how many participants would be involved. I am willing to travel to any venue in the country as long as an additional fee of 65p per mile is added. However, fair negotiation on this is considered in order to make it affordable, particularly for community groups.

Bath

 

Bath University Student Theatre (or BUST, as we prefer to be known) is a theatre company run by students at the University of Bath. We aim to perform, produce, direct and promote great theatre from a huge variety of genres - we're a rather diverse bunch! And we never sleep. Ever.
Since the society was founded back in 1969, we have put on a vast array of theatre productions at venues in and around Bath. Currently, in addition to our regular October, December, March and April plays, we also take part in the annual Bath Fringe Festival as well as holding weekly workshops.
This year we are also doing a new comers only production, so all the more reason to get involved! Any more information please contact one of committee or find us on facebook!
BUST boasts a vast array of talent (and a sickening degree of modesty), with members from a variety of countries studying a huge range of subjects, but all sharing a love of theatre.Of course, this doesn't mean that the 'BUST experience' is limited to acting alone - there are loads of other opportunities to get involved, whether that be through writing, directing or producing a play, checking out our socials or just coming to our weekly workshops!

At the same time this training is specifically geared towards developing essential life skills, such as, team work, communication, public speaking, co-ordination; so if you’re not looking to perform professionally then the training has a wealth of positives that all children can benefit from.
Our experienced staff provide coaching in drama, singing and dance, which is all used to full effect in our whole school production. During the year we also invite guest performers and artists to provide Master Classes so that they can share their skills and experience with our students.

An exciting time lies head as we change from being the Frome Amateur Operatic Society, a name we have been known by for over 100 years. The new name FMTC (frome musical theatre company) reflects the variety of professional musical productions that we perform throughout the year and we hope that our audience of all ages will continue to support us and enjoy being entertained by us, as much as we enjoy showing you the best talent that Frome and the area has.
We are always on the lookout for new members whether that be on stage (acting, singing, dancing etc.), backstage (scenery, props, lighting, sound etc.), under stage (costumes, make-up, hair etc.) and with pre-production activities such as publicity.
FMTC welcome newcomers and if you are interested in finding out more about how you can join us, please send an email to info@fromemtc.co.uk and let us know which areas you would be keen on being involved in, either backstage or onstage, or both.

Godney Amateur Dramatic Society (GADS)

Facebook  


Godney

 

Officially formed in March 2003 after the resounding success of its inaugural production of the pantomime Cinderella, GADS has just completed its twenty second production, Unexpected Guests. Twelve years on the group continues to grow from production to production strengthening its reputation in the local community and is now in a position to stage at least two and sometimes three productions annually. It is a non-profit making organization ploughing every penny gained from ticket sales into new productions or equipment. The support of our paying audience is therefore paramount and gratefully acknowledged.
The group is village-based and encourages youngsters and newcomers to join its ranks. All village residents are automatically full members of GADS and associate membership is given to those living outside the village. All membership is entirely free.
The group currently meets in The Sheppey, Godney on the first Thursday of each month at 7.30pm for an open committee meeting. If there is no production in rehearsal we try to follow the meeting with play readings or workshops, although these can also take place on different nights or in different locations, allowing those members with neither the time nor the inclination to appear in a full production still to be involved in theatre. The meetings are additionally useful as a social get together with like-minded acquaintances and friends.
Whether you want to act or to utilize your backstage or design talents, whether you have a lot of spare time or a little, whether you are young or younger, everyone is more than welcome. We are proud of the fact that every one of our twenty two productions has introduced people new to the group and in some cases new to theatre. Why not you? If you would like more information, just contact one of the committee members, join us on Facebook, ring us on 07555 894 765 or go to www.gadssomerset.org.uk. Apart from using jungle drums or smoke signals there is not a lot more we can do!

Hutton

 

We are a small and friendly drama club situated in Hutton, near Weston-super-mare, England.
We are a small friendly group, currently producing 2 shows per year, pantomime & a play. Drama is a unique hobby as it encompasses all skills & takes you away from the tension & stress of every day life as you enter into a world of fantasy, which also gives pleasure to others. There is nothing more satisfying than making people smile.
Not every one wants to be a budding actor or producer. The DIY experts amongst us derive great satisfaction from turning a bare stage into a plush hotel or a bleak moorland. Electricians can have great fun with creative lighting & dramatic stage effects.
People are always needed to prompt or swiftly change the scenery, not to mention the never ending cuppas. There are ticket sales to handle, helping front of house at the shows, reading scripts for suitability-the list is endless. Drama is teamwork, so –what-ever your interest- we need you & welcome you.
Hutton Drama Club meet every Monday night (except Bank Holidays)
at 7.30pm in:-
The Harold Coward Memorial Hall (a.k.a The Small Hall) Hutton Village Hall, Church Lane, Hutton, Nr. Weston super Mare, Somerset BS24 9SN.
Tickets from: contact@huttondramaclub.co.uk
