Do small AmDram groups need to register for GDRR?

Gwen Chaney

Peter's response:

Hi Gwen,

Do you mean GDPR the new EU General Data Protection Regulation?

If so then I believe that any organisation that has an on-line presence and that collects visitors personal data through whatever means need to ensure that they comply with this new regulation and this compliance has to be in place by 25th May 2018.

It is a very complicated area, however there are many organisations on the web who have advice and guidance to help you understand your responsibilities.

I will post your question in our #Advice section and ask others to provide additional help if they can.

Best Wishes,

Amdram Supplies




"Amdram Supplies” - focusses on supplying consumables and equipment hire across all theatrical departments to produce a high quality show.
The company was born out of not wishing to purchase consumables in bulk, and not having the time to shop across several different suppliers within a busy pre-production schedule. I also wanted to hire high quality equipment within a tight time frame for tech week and production week, alongside friendly and professional stage and technical crew.
We launch July 1st 2018, and we will offer everything required to put on a production; consumables for sound, lighting, stage management, wigs, wardrobe or tools, and also offering high quality, professional equipment hire, with or without technicians that can train amateur theatre operators.

The Paintbox Players

The Paintbox Players presents Puzzle Pieces
A series of one act plays by Robert Scott

Saturday 24th March 2018
Rosliston and Cauldwell Village Hall, Derbyshire, UK

Reviews by Vicky Talbot

The recently founded Paintbox Players delighted and entertained their audience last night with a series of one act plays written by award winning author Robert Scott. The set for each play was minimalistic; a painted window, a table and chairs to set the scene. It may have been nice to see a little more scenery, but as this is the very first performance from this group, I can imagine that the production had a strict budget.

Closure (Comedy)
Luke's birthday party is a lonely affair - there's just him, until his ex-girlfriend Tanya walks in. She only meant to drop off his gift, but soon they're involved in a strenuous argument over closure and who gets it. Carl Smith gave a strong comic performance as the frustrated Luke, matched by his counterpart Nicole James as Tanya. They worked well as a duo and a pleasure to watch with many funny lines. However, the pace really picked up during the second half as David Owen arrived as the bumbling caretaker, who caught them in the act of ‘making up’. There were plenty of laughs from the audience as Luke tried to hide Tanya from the caretaker. There were a couple of moments where lines were not heard due to laughter from the audience, but this was rare. David Owen’s dry performance was a joy to watch and worked splendidly as a counterbalance to the other animated characters.

Sketches (Comedy)
Two short sketches led by Adam Livett interspersed the plays. Joan (The Movie) was a humorous piece where Adam Livett, a Hollywood writer, pitched the most ludicrous storyline to the long suffering executive played by David Owen. The second sketch, Symphony Dreadful, was delightful. Carl Smith played the “Next Beethoven” although his only likeness to the great man was his deafness and ill-temper. His skilled performance maximised the comedic effect and produced one of the funniest moments of the evening. Adam Livett, playing a TV interviewer, had a natural rapport with the audience and his timing had the audience chuckling throughout.

Checkmate (Drama)
In this play, a friendly game of chess between husband and wife becomes more of a game of cat and mouse. Michael likes to think he's always one move ahead, but perhaps this time Amy has him in check. This script was a contrast to the others on offer (and I would guess this was a deliberate production decision.) The complexity of the characters and menacing dialogue created a Hitchcockesque thriller which relied upon two young actors to create the atmosphere. This was a directorial masterpiece by David Owen. Adoria Grace as the vengeful Amy was captivating. Her sensational performance gave a dark and disturbing portrayal of a woman on the brink of insanity, due to her husband’s treatment. Michael was played by Richard Frudd. Richard gave a strong performance. He was required to demonstrate a whole range of emotions from domineering to vulnerable, which he achieved, no mean feat in just over twenty minutes.

Bride Before A Fall (Comedy)
Victor and his mistress Madelyn plot an 'accident' for Victor’s dim but very rich wife Lottie. Their scheming oft goes awry as they consider 42 different scenarios for the deed. The final result has unexpected consequences for all three of them. Joel Hutson gave an amusing performance as the long suffering husband. His comedy timing was perfect which ensured the audience were in stitches towards the end of the show. In contrast to her earlier role, Adoria Grace played the rather unbearable and dim-witted wife, Lottie, showing herself to be a versatile and talented actress. Nicole James, as the jealous lover Madelyn produced an assured and strong performance and I very much enjoyed watching her in this role. There were a couple of stumbles which were well recovered from without the need of a prompt and were nothing that would detract from the enjoyment of the evening.

Verdict 4/5 - The production was clearly a success and achieved its purpose, an enjoyable night out was had by all. There were a couple of moments where pauses for laughter would have been beneficial, but perhaps this will be polished for future productions. All the plays were pleasing to watch, but if I had to pick one to highlight, Checkmate was unique and a quality piece of theatre.

Anything Goes for local Reverend who "misses the boat" as Bishop

Author: Norma Phillips
Secretary of
Teesside Musical Theatre Company

Contact: nphillips6@gmail.com

Reverend Peverell, Vicar of Great Ayton with Easby and Newton under Roseberry is taking part in our production of Anything Goes. He feels this is the only chance he will ever get to be a Bishop.
“Anything Goes” for local Reverend who “Misses the Boat” as Bishop

Teesside Musical Theatre Company were very pleased when Reverend Paul Peverell (fondly known locally as Rev Pev), Vicar of Great Ayton with Easby and Newton under Roseberry, accepted the invitation to take part in their production of “Anything Goes”, and he has admitted himself that this could be the nearest he ever gets to being a Bishop. Unfortunately, his role as Bishop Henry T. Dobson also means he will be arrested and physically dragged off the Cruise Liner S.S. American by the F.B.I. in the opening scenes (another new experience for Rev Pev). Let’s just hope that he abides by his own philosophy of not holding onto any grudges.

Rev Pev is not a stranger to “treading the boards” but is more likely to be seen as a pantomime dame, an indication that he is not your “run of the mill” Reverend. Anyone whose marriage in the parish of Great Ayton involved the Reverend’s bride and groom puppets would agree that the experience was truly unforgettable. Teesside Musical Theatre Company’s production of “Anything Goes” promises to be just as unforgettable with the Reverend as part of the cast.

Come and join in the fun and enjoy a wonderful evening of song and entertainment with this classic musical by Cole Porter including some of his most popular songs such as “It’s Delovely”, “I get a Kick out of you”, “Anything Goes”, “You’re the Top”, “Friendship” and “Blow Gabriel Blow”. Teesside Musical Theatre Company’s production of “Anything Goes” sets sail at Middlesbrough Theatre from Wednesday 25th April to Friday 27th April at 7.15pm, Saturday 28th April at 1.15pm and 6.15pm. Tickets cost £15 for adults (Eve) and £12 (Sat Mat), under 18’s £10 for every performance, and can be ordered from TMTC’s Ticket Secretaries on 01642 275970 and 01287 635259 or from the Theatre Box Office on 01642 81 51 81.
