Theatre in the Garden 2021
(Thanks to Astra Zeneca, Pfizer et al!)
AT THE THREE HORSESHOES PUB GARDENS, DUTON HILL, GREAT DUNMOW
SATURDAY 24th and SUNDAY 25th JULY
Would you like to get involved in this lovely summertime event this year? We need actors of course, but also backstage people for props, lighting, sound, costume, set design / build etc....
The Garden of the Three Horseshoes has its own permanent stage; it's always a magical event and well attended (especially if the weather is good, of course!) with people picnicking and drinking whilst enjoying the excellent entertainment put on by the Greville.
This year, so that the early rehearsals can be in small groups, we'll be doing a selection of award winning short plays and sketches published by pintsizedplays.org.uk. (Visit their web site to get an idea of the style and content to pique your interest!). Some of these plays are very funny, some serious and thought provoking, some sad, and some wonderfully silly - Our Director, Lynda Shelverton, can't wait to get started!
Each play is around 5-10 minutes long, with a wide range of ages, male and female. The sets are generally very simple, and some plays will need be costumed to help set the scene whilst some not. We think this will be great fun for experienced actors and novices alike. Indeed even for those who have never acted before and wondered if drama might be their thing, it's a great way to find out without too much stress, because the plays are short (so there's not so many lines to learn) - and you can do as much or as little as you like.
