Autumn production announcement

Due to the uncertainty around staging a production over the next few months, the committee has decided that there are too many logistical barriers and risks involved in trying to stage a production in our normal Autumn time of October. Because of this, we are going to be trying to put on some online productions over coming months.

So far we have begun to think of ideas for what content would work online as well as themes that would tie in with the current atmosphere.

We have narrowed it down to mainly monologues/duologues, poetry and self written work around the subjects of loneliness, isolation and guilt. We are looking to tackle these themes from all angles, and would love suggestions of anything that we could put on. Whether it is comedic, dramatic or other.

As well as looking for works to put on, if you are interested in either acting, directing or assisting with the online staging of any of the works please let us know.

We are looking to have submissions for both volunteers and pieces to perform by the 17th August. We will then be having an online meeting on the 19th Aug to discuss the options.

Over the past few weeks we have been working on a plan of how to keep performing during the current circumstances while we are unable to host audiences safely. We are happy to announce that we have developed a plan on how we want to keep ourselves and our dear audience entertained.

We’ll be hosting at least one Zoom performance each month leading up to Christmas.
For the performances, we have been able to find some themes on which our productions will be set so they fit with the current mood of the times.

Our idea is to use monologues or pieces that work with a limited cast and can be set and rehearsed online.  

Tickets will be sold for the following performances;

        October 30th – Halloween themed, readings of spooky stories
        November 27th – Virtually set performance of Homework by Howard Colyer *Subject to rights*
        December 11th – Rehearsed reading of a Christmas play – TBC

We hope that if these go well, and if the current situation does continue that we can continue to offer monthly and possibly even more regular online performances.

For those of  you who are interested in either acting, directing or assisting with the online staging of any of the works, or have a suggestion for a piece we can put on in future online performances, please email contact@st-georges-players.org.uk
