Invitation to join our free Cinderella ONeLINE virtual pantomime

Dear Drama Groups

I am student at Chester University and a member of a small community theatre company called Alliance Theatre based in Newtown, Mid Wales.

To help raise awareness of the crises facing theatres, my company has embarked on a project to create an online panto of Cinderella in time for Christmas. For this we need a large cast all of whom are asked just to deliver just a single line of dialogue, so we've called it Cinderella Oneline. All participants need to do is film themselves performing their one line, in character, and email it to us. We will then splice all the videos together to create the panto.

We need over 300 participants so I am writing to ask if you might be able to help me reach out to drama enthusiasts to invite them to take part. Everyone is welcome, family, friends, all ages, no experience needed, just a phone with camera and enthusiasm. It is free to take part.

The poster explains it all, but at this stage all we need is for people to do is go to our website www.alliancetheatre.co.uk and register by 31st October. We will then send them instructions and the line they need to deliver.

If you'd like to see what it might look like, take a look at our Shakespeare Oneline play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KkG0PN4L8c

If you can help in any way then we would be very grateful

Thank you in advance

Paul Martin

#CreativeNetwork-Theatre - 2nd Wednesday of month


Hello,

I'm getting in touch to share details for the monthly Theatre focussed #CreativeNetwork-Theatre session that Voluntary Arts have been running, should you wish to join a future session.

So far, these have brought together several theatre networks to share the support they've offered, as well as practitioners taking different approaches to adapt the delivery of their work. The #CreativeNetwork-Theatre webpage provides some background from these sessions and the wide range of themes that are likely to be of interest.
These monthly calls are free to 'drop-in' for informal sharing. More information about other regular sessions and joining instructions are here: https://www.voluntaryarts.org/creativenetwork

The next #CreativeNetwork-Theatre will be: 10am, Wednesday 14th October - with a provocation led by Sara Harrison (ACE) discussing outdoor performance and non-venue based work with The People's Theatre.

Following that, we are planning a session on 11th November with the Theatre of Sanctuary Network.

Kind regards,

Claire

Claire Sharples / Development Officer (North West)

History of Theatre Productions Post War in Walsall


Dear Sirs,

I am not sure if this will be of any interest to you or if you know of someone that it could be of interest to.
My late Grandfather Edmund Spargo was a member of various Operatic and Drama Groups from 1916 through to late 1940's and was not only a very good actor and performer but also producer of shows.
My mother Marjorie who passed away a few years ago was also a very good performer with many local societies in Durham and Loughborough. We recently came across two Leather Bound Scrapbooks which my Grandfather had kept and painstakingly collected all of the programme's reviews and photographs/newspaper cuttings since his involvement until he was no longer able to do it

The detail within the books, the historical information together with the record of all the plays and musicals that were performed just seem too good to confine to the LOFT!

My Grandfather was a member of The Walsall Players, Walsall Theatres Co.Ltd, St Matthews Institute Amateur Operatic Society, Trinity Social Amateur Dramatic Society and probably others that were performing in the Walsall area. He was married to Elizabeth MYATT, and performances took place at Trinity Church Rooms, Schoolrooms, Her Majesty's Theatre Walsall and other venues all detailed in his collection of programmes and critiques.

I hope that they could be of use to someone or even perhaps a museum and just wondered if of interest could somebody write back to me.

Kind Regards,

Gill

GOV.UK - Coronavirus outbreak FAQs: what you can and can't do from 22nd September 2020


3.18 Can I go to my hobby club / amateur musical group / other leisure activity?

It is against the law to gather in groups of more than 6, where people are from different households or support bubbles. Some activities - such as those organised for under-18s - are exempt. In a COVID-19 Secure venue or public outdoor place, non-professional performing arts activity, including choirs, orchestras or drama groups can continue to rehearse or perform together where this is planned activity in line with the performing arts guidance and if they can do so in a way that ensures that there is no interaction between groups of more than 6 at any time.

If an amateur group is not able to ensure that no mingling takes place between these sub-groups of no more than 6 (including when arriving at or leaving activity or in any breaks or socialising) then such non-professional activity should not take place.

New Television Review show seeks 5-10 year old children for a Major Broadcaster

I am a Researcher working at a television production company called RDF Television. We make successful series like Channel 4’s The Secret Life of Four and Five Year Olds and How to Spend it Well with Philip Schofield for ITV.

We are producing a brand new Review Show for a major broadcaster and are looking for children between the ages of five and ten years old to give us their perspective on the world around us.

At a time when adults can be afraid to say what they think, we want to hand the news over to someone else - The Kids. Our show will be warm and funny and uncover what children really think of the news. From world leaders like Donald Trump to home schooling during Covid to the latest news about Meghan and Harry - no topic is off the agenda! This is because we think it’s time for a new generation to make sense of the world we are living in.

We are looking for children between the ages of 5 and 10 years old who are smart, funny and opinionated and who can offer us a fresh take on the world around us.

We are casting now and will be filming in October and November 2020.

Apply at newsat5casting@rdftelevision.com

We will be complying with the latest government guidelines regarding Covid-19.

Very best wishes and I look forward to hearing from you,

UK government bans groups of more than six people from Sept 14th.

Social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday - with some exemptions - amid a steep rise in coronavirus cases.

The law change will ban larger groups meeting anywhere socially indoors or outdoors, the government said.

But it will not apply to schools, workplaces or Covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports.

It will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply, doubling on each offence up to a maximum of £3,200.

The new rules - which come into force on 14 September - mark a change to England's current guidance.

At present, the guidance says two households of any size are allowed to meet indoors or outdoors, or up to six people from different households outdoors. Until now the police have had no powers to stop gatherings unless they exceeded 30.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will give further details of the changes at a Downing Street news conference at 16:00 BST on Wednesday, alongside senior advisers Prof Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance.

What are the new rules for meeting my friends?
Five reasons rise in Covid cases is not all it seems
"One of the pieces of feedback we had including from the police was that we needed the rules to be super simple so that everybody knows what they are," said Health Secretary Matt Hancock.

"And now this will now be rigorously enforced by the police."

Mr Hancock told BBC Breakfast: "This is really simple. Gatherings are ok, they should be socially distanced of course, but groups only of up to six."

He said it means that some families will not be able to see both grandparents at the same time. "You know, I have three children," he said. "We have a family of five. And so we'll be able to see one other person at a time, as a whole family."

Challenged on whether the new rules could stop grandparents helping out with childcare, Mr Hancock said: "I'm not actively trying to do that".

But he said the government is "quite worried about" the "very serious problem" of children potentially passing on the virus to older grandparents.

Culture Secretary: New rapid Covid test 'has potential to help us get fuller audiences in theatres'

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said last night that new improvements in testing can help get 'fuller audiences in theatres and fans in stadiums back sooner'.

Following the UK government's £500 million investment in quick Covid testing kits to provide rapid tracking of the virus, Dowden was optimistic that the new funding was a "very positive" step towards allowing events featuring a greater capacity.

According to GOV.UK, the new tests, which are being trialed in Southampton and Hampshire, can provide results within as little as 20 minutes using a testee's saliva. A further trial will also be taking place in Salford.

The hope is that testing capacity will be boosted ahead of the winter season, which, according to medical experts, may see another rise in cases if not handled correctly.

The government said yesterday: "By using this cutting-edge technology to widely roll out rapid tests, chains of transmission will be broken almost immediately by delivering on-the-spot results. Successful trials will then be expanded and rolled out more widely."

Casting for environmental video

Hello,

I am producing an environmental video for a grassroots organisation and we are looking to cast some male and female speaking roles (range of ages and ethnicities) to get our message across.

Unfortunately the positions are unpaid as we are all working for free on this but I wondered if any amateur actors might be interested in being in the video?

We are filming for one day on the 13th/14th or 15th September - location is likely to be Victoria Park, East London.
