Space Adventure Television Gameshow
Our show is currently scheduled as a Summer 2020 project and we are aware that dates may have to change as we follow all current and ongoing guidance. We hope that this may give parents and children something fun to look forward to and take part in later in the year. Our team love receiving applications and videos from interested Junior Astronauts and their parents!
I’m a producer at Wall to Wall Media, who are part of the Warner Bros. international television group and are based in London, who specialise in both scripted and unscripted series. Productions range from the internationally acclaimed genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are?, to the highly rated ITV factual format Long Lost Family, hit ITV entertainment series Little Big Shots and C4’s Child Genius, as well as Oscar-winning feature documentary Man On Wire.
We are currently producing an exciting new children’s space travel action adventure game show.
We are looking for teams of 3 children aged 10-12 friends, classmates, family members – who think they have the right stuff to take part in an exciting competition. In this series, each team participates as junior trainee cadets in a selection of physical and mental challenges based on the thrilling world of astronaut training. They will compete in a variety of individual and team games – some high off the ground, some underwater, some on dry land - with the hope of winning a remarkable space prize package.
From our research, we can see how interest in the world encourages children to challenge themselves and, as this is fundamental to our show, and we wondered if the programme may be of interest to your network of parents and teachers. We would love to hear from them and if it feels appropriate at this time we would be grateful if you are able to help spread the word to parents on our behalf or share our flyer on any relevant social media platforms or networks that you may have.
For more information go to spaceadventurecasting.com
Parents must apply on behlaf of their children

Covid-19 Production Cancellations
To all our member societies,
Huge sigh - what can we say?
Clearly the latest pronouncement (16th March 2020) from the Government has put the tin lid on many of your forthcoming productions and we are more than sorry to hear it.
So far, the announcement is not mandatory which will of course make any insurance claims invalid. We fully appreciate that this will cause a great deal of hardship across the board. Please let us know if you have cancellations that are entered into the Festival (firstname.lastname@example.org and cc email@example.com) and we will organize refunds or carry forwards if you decide to postpone your production(s). If you require a refund please include your Society’s bank details in order that we can make a BACS transfer.
For those societies who are still to decide on what they intend to do we advise:
• That if you do not operate out of your own theatre that you contact venues to ensure they are not planning to close-down around the dates of your pending productions
• That you contact licence/rightholders to see what their stance is on postponing productions and allowing societies to forward plan for a date in the future.
TicketSource announced today that they will be waiving the £1 handling fee per booking for cancellations.
We will obviously keep a close eye on this awful situation and if we can help in any other way (announcements of cancellations) we will.
Keep going as best you can and stay in touch.
Sue, Paul, Jude and the rest of the GMDF Board.

We are an online health and safety training company and need to produce some short voice acted sequences - around 10 - 20 seconds each.
The voices will be set to animated characters.
Are you a drama group that would be interested in acting out these sequences? It would require around 8 - 12 actors. We need 7 male voices and 4 female voices. It would take no more than about 1 hour to record. No lines need to be learnt - they are short and can be read from a script.
We are happy to make a donation to your group in return for this assistance.
Would love to hear back from you,
From Human focus

My name is Melanie and I am a producer at Pulse Films, an award-winning independent production company.
I am writing to you as we are currently looking for people to be involved in a new series for the BBC exploring what it means to be white in modern Britain.

We will bring eight people together and examine the issues they feel impact what it means to be white – from race to immigration, from guilt to nationalism and beyond.
The series will also test the opinions of the country as a whole by conducting a wide-ranging survey of the British public.
It would be great if you could publish this to your theatre group who would be interested to take part. We are aware that people within your organisation will be from various ethnic origins, but please help spread the word as we want to hear from everyone.
Here is a link to our initial application to be considered for the show Please share: http://bit.ly/30Um3gK

Northern Irish Families wanted for TV ad
My name is Katie, and I head up the TV casting team at Raw Research. We are currently looking for real families from every part of the UK and Ireland to feature in a lovely ad campaign ... so are getting in touch with organisations, groups and clubs from Land's End to John o' Groats (and all over Ireland too) and everywhere in-between! We want to really reflect the amazing mix of people found in the UK and Ireland, and include families from every nook and cranny with a mix of ages, generations and accents. We're also really keen to include families from Northern Ireland!
For this project, our friends at a well-known DIY company will mark their 50th year in business with a moving tribute to the last 50 Years of life in the UK and Ireland around the home and garden. They have asked us to find families from all over the UK and Ireland who have family photos and home videos from this time who might like to be in their next TV ad.
Are you from a family that always had a camera to hand? Is your attic filled with photo albums and home videos? We want to hear from you - please fill out this questionnaire and a member of our team will be in touch! https://forms.gle/a3QhjUpMwnPxPvUL9
We are looking for about 70 families in total - and about 10 or so of these will be featured more heavily in the campaign (TV adverts plus some short online films). Of these 10, some may be invited to do some filming too, in their home or garden.
We want to include all the big family moments and moments that show time is passing - weddings, christenings, birthdays. first days at school, anniversaries, BBQs, picnics, parties and time in the garden. There’s no such thing as too many pictures or videos! We want families where you can see fashion and wallpaper change as you flip through the albums - we want to see flares, perms and wheelie shoes!
Hero Families (prominently featured) will be paid £5,000 per family, plus a £1,500 voucher from the brand. These fees will cover use of family photos / home videos in the campaign, plus filming in London (transport and accommodation will be covered by production). The family will be potentially required for one of the following dates - 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th of March.
60 Families will be asked to appear in a smaller capacity - i.e. a short clip or picture. They will be given a £300 voucher from the brand.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions, and feel free to share this casting call information with anyone in your networks.
Thanks for reading!

Drama Group near Leiston
I am looking for an amateur Drama group in or near to Leiston in Suffolk in the hope that they may be able to help me.
I lead a holiday for older folk (over 60’s) held in late June each year at Sizewell Christian conference centre and I was thinking of doing an Old Time Music Hall night and wondered if there was a local drama group that would be interested in coming in to do this for me.
We are a non-profit organisation so are not able to afford a great fee and the whole weeks holiday is run by volunteers, but I know that many thespians just love the chance to perform so just thought I would enquire.
Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

I'm contacting you from Leeds Trinity University, I've currently working a film project that requires a group of actors. Age ideally under thirty. One role specifically requires a female, however the others can be any gender. The film is a drama, exploring the idea of living with anxiety in a time where everything is online. The story follows one girl and her experiences.
I would love to hear from anyone who would be interested in featuring in the film.
Shooting starts mid to late February in Horsforth. Will be happy to give more details.
The roles are unpaid due to it being a student film, however food and drinks will be supplied.

Casting - PRISONER OF PARADISE
Script available on request
Dates: 1 June - 12 July 2020
Producer: Emu Film
Director: Mitch Jenkins
Set in colonial, 1925, Mauritius, at a time of social tension, this is- land paradise is the backdrop for a coming of age love story. Orphaned, 19 year old, LUCY GLADWELL has been sent from England to live under the guardianship of her UNCLE GEORGE HYTON.
Initially seduced by the sumptuous beauty of her surroundings and the charm of her new family, LUCY sees GEORGE as a benign, humorous and loving man who has her best interests at heart. But beneath this veneer of civilisation, lies a dark, violent force, that wants to entrap and rule her.
Struck by LUCY’S beauty, GEORGE has become intent on forging a union between her and ANTOINE CHAMPNEY, their wealthy neighbour and owner of the islands largest plantation. When LUCY falls in love with KRISHNA, an indentured labourer working on ANTOINE’S plantation, she finds herself at odds with her UNCLE and the ways of his world. When GEORGE discovers that his vision of the future is being threatened by LUCY’S illicit tryst, he gives her a simple choice. “Marry CHAMPNEY or else KRISHNA dies!”
On her wedding night LUCY makes her escaped after seeking our KRISHNA, the young LOVERS run for their lives. Stealing a motor bike they are pursued by GEORGE, ANTOINE and their men, both seeking their own forms of revenge. There is no going back.
Like ROMEO & JULIET, no matter how fleeting their time together maybe, the passion & all consum- ing nature of true love is some- thing neither of these PRISONERS OF PARADISE can deny.
Krishna Age 19-25
Young, beautiful, fit Indian boy who works the sugar cane fields in Mauritus. Lucy falls in love with him at first sight. The moment we see him, through her eyes, his muscles rippling under the hot mid-day sun, he looks like a god.
Through his beloved teacher, Krishna has learnt to question his fate as an indentured labourer and craves a life in which he is free to love and be loved. He doesn’t want his value to be defined either by the colonials that have enslaved him or the caste system he was born into. An essential part of his journey will be to shed the internalised racism their prejudice has created within his psyche.
It is only through this transition that communion, intimacy and spiritual connection will be possible. Krishna learns how to love because he learns how to be vulnerable.
As a young, virile man he sizzles with charisma and a male potency that bewitches our heroine at first sight. The feelings of attraction are mutual. The dangers for both of them, in engaging in this illicit affair, are life-threatening. But these are risks that both of them are prepared to take in their quest to taste liberty and experience true love.
When they find themselves together, on the run from the same captors, they can at last begin to trust their equality and the mutuality of their feelings for each other. Neither has the upper hand. And with time running out, they shiver into embodied lives.
KRISHNA SHOULD BE VERY GOOD LOOKING AND FIT. IT IS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR BOTH LUCY AND OUR AUDIENCE.
We will be requesting self tapes for this role.
Please send suitable suggestions via email to: email@example.com
Playwriting opportunity to share
My name is Alex and I’d like to share with you a writing opportunity for you to pass on to your members.
I work with The Literal Challenge - a small social enterprise that brings together a community of writers, wannabe writers and newbies through creative challenges. Over the last five Februarys, we’ve run five 28 Plays Later, a play-a-day writing challenge that has inspired the writing of 26,649 plays!
Registrations are now open through the website https://www.theliteralchallenge.com/28playslater and will be open until 28 January. There are more details online, on our social media channels, and in the registration invitation here (29-plays-later.pdf).
We’ve had some incredible successes from our previous years; some of those 26,649 plays have gone on to great things, including professional runs at theatres, readings, festivals, and even adaptation into films. And we’re trying to get the word out to encourage as many people to begin, or develop, a relationship with writing for theatre.
The registration fee is £22.22 and all those who complete successfully will receive a share of the money, however, participants also have the choice of doing it without the deadlines and the risk of disqualification, but without the financial incentive.
It would be of huge help to us if you would be kind enough to share this opportunity with your group members, or even connect with us on social media (details at the bottom) and/or share our pinned challenge announcement. Of course, in return, we would be more than happy to tweet, share and shout about any upcoming shows or opportunities you think might interest our community.
I hope that you will be just as excited as I am to share it with your networks.
Many thanks and have a fantastic week,
