Last Saturday we had a great photoshoot promoting the show at Brixham Battery Gardens, around the old WW2 bunkers, and we also got to use a jeep belonging to the parents of one of our young actors! Photos, and video trailers will be released over the next while to whet your appetite, but to start off with, here are some pictures created to test out graphics and effects for the rest of the release. Original photos by Michael Betts, Laura Jury & Simon Slade. ...
And this weekend, our tour of Beowulf concluded with an excellent performance at Torquay's Royal Lyceum theatre.
Now, the plans for over Christmas and the New Year, include sorting out our props and costumes from Beowulf (putting them away) and getting our props and costumes etc, for Les Misérables.
It has been a fantastic show run - after a shaky start and some recasts, it came to have fabulous feedback, with a small but an amazing cast, most of whom plan to return to the stage with us in future shows and projects, and fabulous permanent relationships forged with new venues.
We were going to have stalls and fundraising on both Middle Street and in the Scala Hall, tomorrow, for Brixham's big Christmas celebration event, however with the forecast of high winds, all the Middle Street attractions have been cancelled by the organiser. Diverse Events, but we still have our stall in the Scala Hall tomorrow, from 10am to 2pm. We have some lovely costume jewelry and gifts like that for sale, and you can also come and find out about our next performances, and our upcoming auditions for Les Miserables and Macbeth, and our projects within the local community.
Thank you so much to Lovely Lisa this morning for helping set up - and preparing the jewelery for display.
Given half a chance, we do a character poster for each of our actors in our shows - granted with this show, our actors are often playing more than one role, so one character has been selected for each actor - behold our Beowulf awesomes!!
We would like to say an enormous thank you to our lovely team members Anne, Phil and Annie, for representing us at the Ageing Well Torbay festival. As a theatre company open to people of all ages who work together creating top quality theatre, it is so important to spread the word about our work, and welcome new actors, stage crew, helpers and audiences at every opportunity.
If you met our lovely team members (or not of course! ) and would like to get involved, in any aspect, or find out more, at any time, please drop us a line any time.
Quinn the Raven says come along to the Beowulf auditions at Chestnut Community Centre (auditions start at 1pm tomorrow- all comers welcome and everyone will be auditioned)
It’s also been arranged that when the show is cast and costumes, Beowulfs poster photoshoot will be with Quinn. (Yes there will be a cast photoshoot with Quinn!)
While Beowulf is an Anglo-Saxon poem, it has a strongly Norse setting as well
Norse mythology, the Icelandic Sagas, and Icelandic folklore usually show the raven as a wise, all-knowing messenger and often a bird of prophecy, protector, and helper

Two of our lovely actors from our production of Ben Hur, are involved in this production by Ugly Duck Theatre Company, bringing to life the experiences of an autistic student at college, performing soon at Exeter Phoenix.
As a theatre company founded and adminned by an autistic creative, ourselves, and with several creatives working with us who have similar conditions, this is a theme we can fully appreciate.
Wishing the two gentlemen involved a fabulous performance!
