Classes in Chippenham and Pewsham

 


Splash!

Local 4 - 8 year old children are going Under the Sea.

The only drama, dance and singing workshops for 4-8 year olds to focus on helping develop children’s confidence, co-ordination, communication and concentration skills. Perform is not a stage school but will help give your child amazing social skills and the best fun of their week.
This April to July, Perform children will be diving down to a magical world full of watery adventures. They’ll meet Dolly Dolphin, Septamus the Octopus and Smelly-Fish-Jelly-Fish. Learn to dance The Fishy Funk and by the end of term rescue the Lost Pearl from the scary Deep Sea Creature.
And best of all, the children won't notice how much they are improving their social skills along the way.
Any interested 4-8 year old can try out the classes by attending a Free Trial Session.
To book a FREE TRIAL SESSION please call 0845 400 4000 or go to www.perform.org.uk

Pewsey

 

Founded in 2006, Pewsey MVC sing for the fun of it with the aim of bringing our audiences the same pleasure. By doing so successfully we have been instrumental in raising thousands of pounds for charities such as Comic Relief, Macmillan Nurses, Brighter Futures, The Fire Fighters' Charity, Children with Cancer, Julia's House, Devizes PHAB, Pewsey Heritage Centre and, of course, via Pewsey Carnival, local hospices and the Wiltshire Air Ambulance
Choir membership is centred on Pewsey with voices from as far afield as Burbage, Enford and the Collingbournes and has (so far) included teenagers, octogenarians and all in between. Numbers now exceed the thirty mark but the invitation is always open for new voices who enjoy singing to join up. Rehearsals are on Mondays between 7:00pm and 9:00pm at St.John's Church. When the church isn't available or we fancy a less formal/social session we can be found in The Crown Inn, Wilcot Road; "Pop-Up Performances" may also be held by special arrangement at various locations around the Vale where we think potential new recruits might be found!

If you would like to book tickets for our next performance please email bookings@phoenix-players.com or call Pauline on 01793 814538
There are some 40 members of the Players covering a wide age range. Some are keen actors and others prefer to be out of the spotlight covering the many back stage tasks that are so necessary to have a successful production. The Players all share the same love of the theatre and their aim is to provide quality entertainment for their loyal patrons whilst being involved in the activities they so much enjoy. Being a members of the Players is like being part of an extended family and there have been a few occasions where members who have left the area have actually moved back simply because they missed being part of the company.
The Players present three productions each season ranging from comedy to classics and also enjoy a number of social activities during the year.
Would-be members can be assured of a warm welcome, so if you have an interest in the theatre, whether this be in front of or behind the footlights, we would love to hear from you.

Shakespeare Live

Shakespeare Live
www.shakespearelive.com


Seend

 

Founded in 1989 by a group of experienced amateur actors, Shakespeare Live is a theatre company which raises funds for charity by producing open air performances of Shakespeare plays. Since its foundation the company has raised over £50,000 for charitable causes. Open auditions are held in January for the summer production, performed outdoors in early July, to audiences in excess of 2,000 people. A further small touring production takes place in September/October.
Quality acting, sumptuous costumes, a grand spectacle supported by superb technical and special effects, and as the evening draws on the unique magic that grows while the darkness gathers around the pool of light in which the actors weave their spell – these are the hallmarks by which our many regular audience members have come to know Shakespeare Live, and the unexpected delights that so often win high praise from newcomers.
All this is enjoyed by our audiences from the weatherproof comfort of tiered seating in a covered stand. While the actors may occasionally find themselves battling the elements, the spectators stay dry – although a warm wrap is always to be recommended! Creature comforts are well provided for during your visit, with indoor bars, picnic spaces and toilets as well as outdoor stalls selling food, drink and merchandise – and of course those splendid lawns to enjoy your picnic on a balmy summer evening. Come on our Gala Night and you will be entertained by musicians and dancers while you soak up the atmosphere before the show. In past years we have performed at Hazelbury Manor, Lackham House and from summer 2017 forwards at Cleeve House in Seend.
You may rest assured also that once the costs of staging and production have been covered any surplus from the price you pay for your ticket will go to charitable causes. In our 28 years to date we are pleased and proud to have been able to donate over £50,000 to a wide range of charities, the majority of them with local connections. We aim to contribute to the community life of North Wiltshire: to that end we have formed, and will continue to develop, artistic and educational links with a variety of local schools and youth groups, links which are central to our status, from early 2014, as a registered charity. We love to involve children and young people in our productions.
If you would like to learn more or become involved, please either visit our website, email us on shakespearelive@outlook.com or call 07780 938107

Drama, Panto & Variety. Age 5 to 100
About 13 years ago a few people in the Valley got together to read some plays. Out of this, the Tarrant Valley Players, as they became, presented the local community with The Kingfisher, a romantic comedy. We progressed to a couple of home grown pantos, Tarrantella and Dick Whit-Hinton. More plays, pantos, Music Hall nights and Revues followed. Our members are all local people with an interest in amateur dramatics with a wish to contribute to their community, at the same time having fun and being creative. We have helped fund an annexe to a Valley village hall and we make regular donations to local charities. We love to welcome new members with an interest in all aspects of local amateur dramatics.
An amdram group who have been around for about 14 years, we will tackle almost anything, but noted for our splendiferous pantos! We did our first musical last year, "Oliver!", which was a huge success. Friendly and welcoming, and we like to donate as much of our money as possible to local charities!

The Marlborough Players were founded by Barbara Clauson, Ian Philpott and Jack Hawkes in 2004 after the huge success of the 'Wheels of Time' play (marking the 800th anniversary of Marlborough's Royal Charter) clearly indicated that there was a healthy appetite for amateur drama in the town once again.
Although we have a healthy membership, we are always looking for aspiring actors and directors to join our happy band, as well as those willing to help backstage. If you are interested and would like further details, please contact the Membership Secretary, Ian Philpott, on 01672 512302, or via the 'Join us' section of our website.

Western Players

Facebook  Twitter  


Swindon

 

The Western Players originated as "The Great Western Railway(Swindon) Mechanics Institute Amateur Theatrical Society" in the early 1900's (the first production was of "Checkmate" by A Halliday on April 25th 1904) and celebrated its 100 year anniversary in 2004. It has performed over 240 plays at the last count (although research is still ongoing!)
Today its aims are the same, namely to bring stage entertainment to the people of Swindon and to have fun doing it. There are about 40 or so members ranging in age from late teens to mid- eighties (the average is probably about the forties) and whilst many are very keen to perform on stage, there are those who are equally keen to provide the essential support of director, stage manager, backstage, lighting and other vital roles to ensure a performance takes place at the highest standard. Most members are willing to do any function to make the production successful, but no one is forced to anything they would rather not.
There is a very friendly co-operative feel to the whole group. What they all have in common is: the desire to do well, the ability to be team players and the love of the theatre. It puts the Western Players in the enviable position of having no prima donnas, no cliques, with everyone working to support productions, whether they are directing, on stage, backstage, front of house or publicity. It is a healthy society, still welcoming new members and mixing those with experience and those with youthful enthusiasm to best advantage for the society and for the audiences.
In terms of activities, the key functions are the three productions (each of four nights in the Arts Centre in Old Town, Swindon) that take place in Spring (Mar/April normally), Summer (June/July) and late Autumn (November) annually. The type of production ranges from Drama (Cause Celebre) to Period (Jekyll and Hyde) to Comedy (Tom, Dick and Harry) to Thriller (House Guest). There is the opportunity to enter the One-Act Play Festival each year, although in the last few years the Western Players have not done so.
Rehearsals start about 10-12 weeks before the performance and normally take place on a Monday and Thursday at 7.30pm at The Salvation Army Centre, Chapel Street, Gorse Hill, Swindon SN2 8DA) and finish between 9.30 and 10.00pm.
On top of all this there are social activities - trips to the theatre, skittle nights and the Christmas Dinner (normally in January!!) that allow members to get to know each other in a relaxed, social setting.
Everyone is very welcome at the Western Players, in whatever capacity they wish to undertake.
Further information can be obtained from any Committee member, but for a first point of contact, try the Secretary, Tony Manders, on Swindon (01793) 343571 or you can send an email or see us on Facebook. inquiries@westernplayers.co.uk
