Puppeteer Training and Placement Opportunity

Puppeteer Training and Placement Opportunity

Skills Training Day on May 3rd 2024

Screen Manchester are currently running a scheme that I would really appreciate you sharing about with any groups and organisations who deal in Amateur dramatics, puppeteering or voice acting. Its quite a unique opportunity, including a training session with world class puppeteering talent, using a mix of technical skills and performing/acting talent to bring the puppets to life. There will be a paid placement opportunity for two attendees following the initial training day.

Here is the link to the full post on our website including detail on applying - New Training Scheme with BBC's Children & Education and Brilliant Trees Media - Screen Manchester

USHERS The Front of House Musical

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @ElaineC_reviews

Review date: 18th Apr 2024

Ten years on since USHERS first came to the stage and the first opportunity I've had to watch it. The Musical comedy is an inside view into how the front of house teams in a theatre might behave, although it is fair to say you wouldn't want too many bosses like Robin (Daniel Paige).

But when Goldilocks starts wishes for happy ever after endings for other characters too, the Wicked Witch of the West North West, is having none of it! Add Dick Twittington alias highwayman Dick Turpentine, Velcro alias Buttons, Prince the Pantomime Horse, a chest full of pirate treasure, and you have a recipe for mayhem, murder, and happily never after!'

Egyptian Belly Dance & Kimonos

I have several items which I would like to find a new homes for.
Items I have are -
Egyptian Belly Dance costumes - hip scarfs, skirts harem pants and tops.
3 hand made Kimonoís which are hand made, with sachs, and 2 back bows.
2 pairs of Japanese shoes, very small size. The Kimonos were made in Japan.
These are no longer required, and I would like them to go to somewhere they will be used and appreciated.
If they are of interest please contact me wendyjc2503@yahoo.co.uk
I would appreciate the cost of postage and packing if required. I just donít want to throw them away. The Kimonos have sentimental value as were gifts from Japanese students, and made by them. The belly dancing costumes are mine from when I did belly dancing, which unfortunately I am no longer able to do and perform at events etc. due to falls and 2 damaged knees.

Best Little Whorehouse in Texas


Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

My local theatre group, Blackmore Players were going to do this, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, a while ago then COVID hit! Having a tidy up tonight and found these in the stage store. Unused x 20. Not written in at all, brand new. They cost £10 each but if we got £5 each, they would be happy. Bargain all round! If you are thinking of doing this, DM me and if you're not far from Blackmore, CM4, then sure we can sort something out. Thanks all.

From https://www.facebook.com/rob.burbidge

I would be interested to speak to anyone who has produced "Til Beth Do Us Part" (Jones/Hope/Wooten") as some aspects of licensing are unclear. More generally, it's on the books of Dramatists Play Service in the USA. Their website doesn't list any alternate rights holders in the UK (there are for Asia, Scandanavia etc). There are some suggestions that weinbergers holds DPS rights in the UK but I get redirected to the MTI site and I'm just likely to around in circles. Anyway if anyone can offer advice here or message me I'd be grateful to hear experiences. Thanks in advance.
Please message me https://www.facebook.com/rob.burbidge

Peter's response:

Hi Rob,

I'm afraid I don't have any information that would help.

I will post your query in the #Advice section of www.dramagroups.com asking anyone who is able to help to contact you directly via Facebook.

Best Wishes,
