Panto 2015 Rapunzel

Team RAPUNZEL is up and running! Well at least George Doherty and I are as Producer and Panto Manager respectively! Just giving a big shout out to everyone involved in Pinocchio this year to think about getting involved next year! Whether on stage in chorus or as principals or in the production team - get involved! Really looking forward to planning and working with George and excited at getting started. We already have a number of prospective songs and the list is growing.

It's a great script and it's going to be great fun. Keep an eye out for updates throughout the first half of the year and,seriously, if you fancy trying your hand at getting involved in any way shape and form with the production then be sure to respond to the request in Sightline for applications for all the different production and backstage jobs that need to be filed in order to get this show on the road and make it the success that we all intend it to be. If anyone would like a chat about any of the production team roles and what each entails then get in touch with me. We have an updated panto operations manual which provides, in detail, what is involved and the responsibilities of each role.

David Cheape, Panto Manager, RAPUNZEL.

Behind the Scenes

A few years ago the theatre club put on one of a collection of entertaining plays called “Deckchairs”.

This involved making the audience believe they were on a warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer. No mean feat for late September!

Although “Deckchairs” had only two people on stage at any one time, a veritable army of people had collaborated over the previous months to create that warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer.

They covered many areas and included:- producer, stage manager, stage crew, set designer, lighting manager, sound engineer, props, wardrobe, make-up, publicity, ticket and box office staff, front of house manager, the list is endless.

Without these people there would have been no show. So, remember, belonging to a theatre club can encompass many different interests, from simply going to the Theatre, through to set design!

If you are looking for a new interest, why not get in touch. And if treading the boards or making costumes etc is your dream then perhaps we can help make it a reality. Let us make good use all those hidden talents.
