It’s time to Shine a Light as Audition Bookings for Heathers: The Musical are now online!

Heathers The Musical is based on the cult classic 1980s movie of the same name starring Winona Ryder and Christian Slater.
Heathers is the darkly delicious story of Veronica Sawyer, a brainy, beautiful teenage misfit who hustles her way into the most powerful and ruthless clique at Westerberg High: The Heathers.
Before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid JD.
When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but JD has another plan for that bullet.

Theatre Through the Years – Medieval Years

ATicket2Ride

By Medieval Europe theatre was being used as a way to educate people on the new Christian religion, with priest regularly performing to retell the celebrations of Christianity.
More widely in communities’ groups of people would perform morality plays. These were so often performed by ordinary people and organised and funded by guilds of craftsmen and merchants. Other forms of theatre were mystery and farces.
Today’s theatre still has medieval roots, including stage directions and most plays are written in ordinary everyday language.
Taken from the lessons of medieval times which aimed at educating people, during this pandemic, where we can’t do what we want to do to entertain, we can go back to our roots by using our crafts to teach and educate on the current situation.

Keep Updated
I am keeping the website updated so please do keep an eye out for key information. I am also happy to hear feedback on these emails, the programmes or indeed what you are doing as the UK begins to unlock. So please do feel free to contact me at any time either through social media or email.

Latest Review

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @elainec46302904

Review date: 27th Feb 2021

Southwark Playhouse had planned to bring to the stage The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by the renowned musical theatre writers Richard Hough and Ben Morales Frost. However, due to further restrictions, the Theatre wasn’t in a position to perform in front of a live audience and decided to continue with their plans to put this onto the stage and have filmed the production to be screened online.

Eva (Mary Moore) has her debut musical performance as the rebellious daughter of a long-suffering Dad (David Thaxton). Not happy to just settle and let life be guided for her Eva wants more and sees the world through a different lens to her Father. Quite rightly so as the upcoming generations need to see a difference for things to change.

I thought the idea of the Aurora lights rebelling and fighting the townsfolk worked incredibly well. Although you will need to watch the production to find out exactly what happens when they clash.

Anna Kelsey has created a dark and intriguing stage portraying the dark and damaging effect caused by industrial pollution. It goes on to accompany the wonders of Eva’s magical powers and allow the sparks from her spells to light up the stage and add another depth to the special effects.

While you are watching The Sorcerer’s Apprentice it is important to be able to suspend your disbelief. They have recreated the scene from Disney’s Mickey Mouse version where the broomsticks come to life and dance around Eva. Although the actors are visible it’s an extremely impressive choreographed scene by the talented choreographer Steven Harris.

Creatives have learned to adapt through this pandemic. Enchanting productions such as these can be adapted for screen. Therefore, once the Theatre’s can reopen their doors live screening and pay to view audiences could be able to access productions which were previously unavailable to them.

Four Stars

Streaming from Friday 26th February – Sunday 14th March 2021.

The inspiring rags-to-riches tale of The Four Seasons
When Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi met, they were just three New Jersey teens singing together under street lamps, scraping for gigs and money in their working-class neighbourhood.
After Joe Pesci introduces Bob Gaudio the trio became the famous quartet and together they rose to international stardom, and celebrated the highs and endured the lows that come hand-in-hand with fame.
Directed by Cilla Scott and Brad Kendrick, Jersey Boys is a smash hit that showcases The Four Seasons' most iconic hits including “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man”.

Historical amateur dramatics

Hi, I’m not sure if this is the right place to enquire, so apologies in advance if so.
I am trying to find info on a distant relative. I have a newspaper cutting saying she belonged to the West Sussex players. She played in The Queen and the Rebels, I think early 60’s, and Witness for the prosecution in 1959. Her name is Elizabeth Marriott.
Is there any kind of archive for past plays/actors and actresses in amateur dramatics? Or could you point in a direction where I might find more info, would love to know what other parts she played.
Many thanks,
Claire

Peter's response:

Hi Claire,

I'm afraid I don't have any information on the West Sussex Players and I don't know of any archive for actors / actresses appearing in amateur theatre. Certainly in the early 60s there wouldn't have been digital records. I have found a website http://www.westsussex.info/theatre-groups.shtml West Sussex info which contains a section on theatre groups. I couldn't see the Players listed but they may have someone on staff who might remember?

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 your email address.

I wish you luck in your search and would be interested to hear if you are successful in tracking your relative down.

Best Wishes,

Peter
