iRehearsals are now fully underway for our production of Les Miserables. While costumes wont be making an appearance until next week, Andrew came up today and got some brilliant pictures of the rehearsals behind the scenes. We did Act 1 (the first half) today, and the team are so strong already. Behind the scenes the teamwork and cohesion is ideal, onstage the energy and dynamism is so powerful that it is amazing to think what it will become, when it is this strong already. Truly wonderful - and a privilige to direct such great actors.
A great day yesterday with rehearsals - having finished workshopping the 5 acts, we now have started in on blocking the acts. As we were working on Act 5 yesterday, we started blocking that too.
Last sunday was a brilliant day - what a turnout of amazing new and established people - and what a standard of audition. Pretty much everybody was deserving of a lead role, which made selection incredibly difficult!
We are just waiting to hear from everyone with regard to accepting thier roles, but as it stands we have been able to fully cast the entire production, and it is outstanding!
We also have a new lovely crew member, Andrew, who is helping with things behind the scenes and he got some great audition photos!
Many thanks to all of our lovely helpers at our fundraising stand at the Brixham Pirate Festival - we raised invaluable funds for our productions :) Also many thanks to Judi for allowing us to use the space, and to the local Brixham Police, and festival security, for coming along and volunteering to be in our stocks :)
We have produced a selection of character posters for the cast of our stage production 1307; from a wonderful shoot by Emily of appletoneventphotography.co.uk, Laura and Ry of The South Devon Players! And - scroll down for a video trailer as well :)
We have been downloading more images from the film; here are a look behind the scenes at another location of the film (which is all currently in editing :) )
Editing for our film Mordred, telling the story of King Arthurs illegitimate son, based on early legends, continues. Its taking a long while as it is happening around everyones day jobs etc. But in the meantime, we have some new stills from footage filmed by the team in Cornwall at Pengersick Castle...
Having been in discussion with our editor, Michael, there will be, at last, a rough draft done when he is back in Devon, in Feb 2018, when he, and the South Devon Players committee will be meeting up, viewing, and then discussing the tweaks and next bits. At that point we should have a lot more info on the final timescales on the project.
In the interim, we are well aware that all of the cast and crew and supporters who have poured time, effort, money, logistics - or who love the project - are waiting very patiently, for news on the final timescales, so while we havent anything major yet, we should do soon, and in the meantime, I have decided to grab a few stills from the uncut footage. If cast would like a footage still or two, like the ones below, then do drop me a line and I will see what I can sort out Thank you so much for your patience everyone :)
And here is a quick look behind the scenes at our rehearsals for The Three Musketeers: The Panto,
This all action pantomime will be performed in Brixham and Torquay in Mid-to late January - pop over to our Box Office page to book now!
Scenes, swordfights, and costumes are all underway now.
We hope to see you in January :)
