Hard work continues…

The theatre has been busy with one production rolling on from the other lately, and its a bit of a rush to gather ourselves together and start fresh, it does keep us on our toes though. There is a flurry of cleaning, set breakdown and reset, prop gathering, wardrobe organization, lighting rigs, production management and of course the auditions to the final night with all that entails. It creates a busy atmosphere that all comes together in a very practiced way, with some breath holding moments, but its all great fun. Its amazing how much talent is attached to the Rep, and no matter what is needed from acting to directing and backstage, the right people are either on board or can be found.

The new committee is almost half way through its term and has proved to have brought some fresh changes and new ideas. One of the new concepts for Rep is to share what we do with students from C.E.S so they will be following the next production weekly, with the construction of a play for performance with all that is involved observed and explained. This we hope will encourage a lasting interest in the different facets of theatre and even participation in the future.

The Repertory is a Community Theatre, so not only do we put on 4 productions of our own a year, but we also encourage outside organizations to take a look and see if the theatre would work for them for what they are doing. It does well as a venue for presentations and teaching, music events and plays, and general meeting groups. The elegant supper room can be hired alone, or the full theatre can be booked along with staff. It is comfortable and functional and with 120 seats is manageable for many groups who don’t need a large venue, or a price for hire to match.

At this time of the year we do start to think about Christmas, and that means a bit of down time, but our last production of the year is in pre-production. Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward, a favorite with many that will take us to the middle of December quite nicely. There are some thoughts on next year already and what would be enjoyable to run, so anyone wishing to direct a play, please approach, actors watch for audition notices, and our performances are well advertised, everyone welcome.
