Want to work towards a live public performance?
Want to work on original texts and new show concepts?
Want to work with professional directors?
This course is for you! We hold 2 auditions a year for our productions and aim to create new and diverse pieces that are shaped and developed throughout the rehearsal process. The course is designed to offer cast
members with a rehearsal room atmosphere and to treat everyone as a ‘performer’ in the upcoming production.
Details of the next production and auditions are noted below:
A Matrimony of Murder -
2022 Performance Course
We invite you to the wedding of brides Lily Stone and Verity Johnson.
As an invited guest to this intimate and special wedding, you will be welcomed into the celebration with open arms. Marchmont St Giles boasts a beautiful backdrop for our brides to say 'I Do - Til death do us part'.
But not all is as it seems. You will have a front row seat so pay close attention as secrets, hopes, dreams and fears unfold during the course of the wedding itself. Will everyone make it down the aisle?
As an invited guest you will be required to dress for the occasion and get on your best finery, our photographer will be on hand to capture the special moments the day is sure to bring. Refreshments will be served. Make sure you arrive on time, no-one likes a late wedding guest.
So SAVE THE DATE! A full WEDDING INVITATION will be sent in due course.
Our Performance Course is an opportunity for our students to get out of the workshop space working tutors, and into the rehearsals space working with a director.
The January - June rehearsal period gives time for the director to explore with their actors, to work on devising and to connect actors with the texts. Our June 2022 production will be an partly improvised and partly scripted devised BRAND NEW production.
A MATRIMONY OF MURDER is a BRAND NEW piece of theatre, that asks the question:
When 2 families collide at a wedding - will they all make it down the aisle ALIVE?
TIL DEATH DO US PART.
