British Prime time TV opportunity
My name is Chris - I'm a casting researcher at ITV. I'm currently casting for the new series of Britain's Got Talent (2021) and looking for great young talent. I am especially interested in finding young boy singers with incredible voices
As a former performer myself, I’m a huge advocate of using our platform to gain exposure for young artists and helping them to begin and advance in their careers. Our show is a prime-time Saturday night programme reaching out to 12 million viewers on the prestigious ITV channel alone, let alone our social channels which collectively reached a billion views last year.
Therefore, I was wondering if you would have any young male talent that you think would be suitable for the show as we would love to be able to showcase them.
Please feel free to spread the message around / share my contact details below. It would be great to arrange a quick informal chat to tell you more about the show, and how it will be working next year, if you think you may have anybody that fits the bill.
Marble Academy will be resuming classes on Monday December 7th.
We are always on the lookout for new talent, so if you are interested in becoming a student with us, auditions/interviews are still be held, so get in touch with us as soon as possible and we'll be happy to have a chat about all the details.

CAN YOU HELP?
Hi, My name is Daniela Bianchi. I live in Milan. I love movie REUNION AT FAIRBOROUGH (1984) and I love also to find locations and any kind of information about it. Well, some locations were already known but I found some others by myself. It was filmed in Surrey. Watching it I saw a comedy poster WHEN WE ARE MARRIED by a somewhere amateur dramatic soc. I cannot read the first word... I attached some photos (forgive the bad quality) maybe they recall you something... I'd like to know it a lot!
I joined some Surrey villages facebook pages and I always met so nice British people who helped me a lot about my RAF movie obsession!
'The sequel to Southwell (Nottinghamshire) Theatre Club’s radio play podcast ‘The Assassination of Robert Opray’ is now freely available to listen to on Soundcloud. Titled ‘Whatever Happened to Robert Opray?’, we hope that the original half hour comedy drama engages the listener and raises a smile! As with the first play, it was rehearsed on Zoom, then recorded using smartphones whilst wrapped up in non-crackle duvets with curtains drawn - and ticking clocks removed!'
Get the link to download the play from our website.

FO-500 Ultra Low Volume Fogger
Use the FO-500 for disinfection, pest control, odour control and plant protection.
The FO-500 works by expelling a fine, almost invisi-ble mist into the atmosphere which eventually settles on all surfaces including those impossible to reach by conventional methods.
The machine is compact, lightweight and robust, making it ideal for commercial use, whilst equally suited to a domestic environment. The large 5 litre tank and powerful 1400w 240v electric motor allow the covering of large areas with ease.
The ability to adjust the fogger output from a vapour of just 9 µm up to a fog 49 µm, and flow rate up to 49 litres per hour makes this machine suitable for the application of disinfectants, biocides, fungacides and pesticides.
Regular fogging with a Defra approved disinfectant such as Steri 7 or Safe4 will help prevent the crossinfection of viruses such as MRSA, Coronavirus (human and feline), Strangles, Ringworm and many more.
WHERE CAN I USE IT?
Use the FO-500 ULV Cold fogger in hospitals, schools, homes, restaurants, holiday sites, food places, dairy farms, poultry yards, warehouses, barns, greenhouses etc.
We are currently supplying many businesses throughout the UK and Ireland with our fogging machines and revolutionary disinfectant that is helping businesses to continue to stay open and eliminating the further spread of Covid-19. We would like to introduce our products to you.
PPE Heroes is a company that has offices in the United Kingdom and Ireland. We supply fogging machines and a disinfectant to many businesses. Our customers range from Creches, Schools, Nursing Homes, Churches, Barnados, Restaurants, Bars, Hotels, Theatres, Bed & Breakfast, Private Health Care Departments, Ambulance and Fire Services, along with an array of other businesses and services.
The Theatre Royal in Bath, who is one of our clients, credits us in helping to keep their theatre open during these uncertain times. They have kindly sent us some pictures of one of our products being used. Please see attached photos...
Mr Hibbert was kind enough to drop us line also:
Couple of pics from the post show spray of the Main House auditorium. It’s working really well and the staff are perfecting their spraying skills – we can complete the operation over 4 levels in 30 minutes and all positive feedback from the staff on ease of use and space coverage.

Looking for actors
My name is Aislinn Males, I’m a second year student studying film at the University of Reading. I am currently completing a creative practical where I am shooting a film opening of a pysco-thriller about a mother and her daughter and I need female actors that would be able to fill out the role of the mother and daughter. Unfortunately, we would not be able to pay the actor as we do not have a budget for the film but we will provide lunch.
We will be filming on the week starting on the 9th of November.
We are looking for the mother an actor around 30-50 years old and for the daughter an actor in her 20s.
If there are any willing female actors out there that are able to take time out of their week and would be happy to star in this student film I ask them to please contact me.
I’m contacting you from Viacom Studios UK, a television production company based in London and Manchester, further details about the company can be found on our website: https://viacomstudiosuk.com/
We’re a sister company of MTV; and you may have heard that we’re producing the UK version of Catfish: The TV Show, their hit reality-based documentary series. Each episode brings people together who've interacted solely through the internet. Whether they've supposedly fallen in love or become best friends; we arrange for them to finally meet in real life for the first time.
Catfishing effects an eclectic range of individuals and has spiked during this period, so we want to get the word out to those who need help either finding the truth, or revealing it.
We are interested in reaching a diverse range of people including those withing the theatre community.
According to the latest Government briefing, Manchester is going into Tier 3 from midnight on Thursday
So, it is with serious heartbreak that I have to say that classes are having to be postponed until the Tier is lowered.
I will obviously keep my eye on the situation and when it changes I will, of course, let you all know.
In the meantime, please do NOT hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in becoming a student. Either email email@example.com or PM me and we can arrange an interview/audition and I can send you an application form.
Hopefully, this Tier system won't be in force for too long but, while it is my hands are tied, unfortunately.
Sir Walter Raleigh in "Sir Walters Women". He spans the story over a time so his playing age goes from 30-50. He is the lead role in this three hander one hour play. Rehearsals on Wednesday evenings (plus any tech/ choreography sessions to be arranged at mutual convenience). Performance Nov 28th 2020.
This is a one-act drama about the life of Sir Walter Raleigh as he manoeuvres his status as a favourite of Elizabeth I to satisfy his political ambitions. Into the Court arrives Bess Throckmorton. They fall in love and marry in secret, to the great and lasting displeasure of the Queen. The Queen dies and the envious James I comes to power and the play ends with Sir Walter's incarceration, trial and execution.
Please contact southdevonplayers@gmail for sides. Please submit your selftape to us as soon as possible. This is an urgent recasting. Until it is cast the other actors are unable to rehearse.
The next three roles are in The Lost Girl, a script based on the novel of the same name by DH Lawrence.
Mr. Houghton: A dreamer and failed businessman; late 60s
Ciccio: Fiery, unpredictable Italian troupe member, 25
and a doubled role comprising an actor taking on both of the following roles
Max: Simple-minded Swiss troupe member, 25
Expectant Father: A nervous young man, 20s
It should be noted that this last role has been under offer but the actor who was offered the part, has not replied to the casting offer yet so after a few days we are looking at casting again.
This play will begin rehearsals after the finish of Sir Walter's Women, and is therefore a less urgent casting, though we would like to get it cast sooner rather than later. The show date is mid January. The synopsis: Alvina Houghton, the headstrong daughter of a widowed Midlands draper, comes of age just as her father’s business is failing. In a desperate attempt to regain his fortune and secure his daughter’s proper place in society, James Houghton buys a theatre. Among the travelling performers he employs is Ciccio, a sensual Italian who immediately captures Alvina’s attention. A celebration of freedom, however fleeting, and a testament to the power of the imagination to transform even the most mundane life.

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

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.

History of Theatre Productions Post War in Walsall
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.
We are looking for a Director, an Assistant Director, actors, back stage crew, SMs, pros 'n' frock teams, techies, FOH, publicity etc etc. for this really exciting project.
It will be a challenge but if GMDF members can't take on a challenge then nobody can.
We look forward to hearing from you because as a band of hugely talented theatre people, this is something that we CAN do - we're all fed up of being told what we can't do so get over to the GMDF members' web page and fill out the shopping list form.
