Radio Nights Kick-Off Meeting

14th January 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Call 01606 259596

Dear all.
After such a successful Radio Night in March I am delighted to announce there will be a ‘Tonight On The Wireless – PART TWO!!’ 364 days on (15th & 16th March 2018 @ Davenham Theatre).
Davenham Players will present an evening of radio plays, extracts, poetry and sketches, performed live in front of an audience
This is a wonderful opportunity to find, read and perform material that is either written for radio or just isn’t possible/practical to perform as a production.
If you would like to know more or be involved then please come along on Sunday 14th January at 3pm (until about 6pm) for our first meeting/read through. D and myself will be putting the production together so please ask us if you have any questions.

A few things to consider:

All the performances will be done with ‘script in hand’. Everything will be rehearsed but you won’t need to know all lines off by heart.

The idea is to have everything in front of the audience. So the actors will have their scripts, props will be on hand to make live sound effects and we’ll have all electronic music and sound done on stage too. This gives people a chance to see the inner workings (and hopefully tempt them to get involved in the future).

Last time pieces ranged from the famous classics of radio like: The Goons, Under Milkwood, Round the Horne, Monty Python and Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Alongside these we also had original material written by Davenham members as well as a few surprises.

While we have already collated some material we will welcome any suggestions, please let us know the details or send me or D a copy, ideally before the 24th January so we can look at trying it out.

The plan is to rehearse each Sunday from 14th January until the show.

Lastly but most importantly, we want as many people to come along on the 14th (3pm) and be a part of what will be yet another really great two nights at Davenham.
If you have any questions or concerns about availability, involvement or experience, the aim of meeting on the 14th is to address these.

We look forward to seeing (and hearing) you.

Tom and D
