For those of you who were looking forward to our next production, it’s bad news -again. Due to issues with casting we have had to cancel our production of The One.
This follows on from last year’s cancellation of Anna Weiss and highlights one of the main problems faced by all amateur theatre companies – we depend on volunteers who have to fit theatre into their spare time. Increasingly busy lives, where work schedules and families can often leave very little space for ‘hobbies’, mean that many people, although willing, simply don’t have the time to commit to a theatre production requiring months of intensive rehearsals.
Over the next few months, we will be working out how we can continue to produce high quality theatre for our audiences. It may be that we move to shorter, one-act plays, larger casts, devised pieces or other ways to reduce the burden on our actors.
If you have any suggestions of plays you think we should look at, or anything you would like to see us perform, please get in touch – we would like to hear from you.
