Good People

“Good People” is poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck and it requires an able black actor to play the part of Kate, a doctor’s wife with a young child and an English Literature degree. The director, Ann Stutz, would love to hear from anyone who might like to know more about the role, the play and this production.

Please email info@shoestring.com  and we will get back to you. The re-read through will take place in the Rehearsal room in the Arts Centre on Wednesday 13th January at 7.45.

 

The Shaugraun and Minack 2016:

Auditions will take place on Tue 29 Sep and Sat 3 Oct.

Experienced and Apprentice/Trainee Set Painters

At present, we need 4-5 volunteers in the scene dock beneath the stage.

We start painting at about 0945 and will finish by 1230. Wear old clothes as no overalls are supplied. Gloves are not necessary unless you are allergic/sensitive to emulsion (water-based) paint which is all we use.

Having finished painting and washed out your tools (brushes, rollers, etc.) at the end of the session you might be invited to join the “master builders” of set construction for a libation in The Vaults!

This excellent work experience and training activity will be seriously over-subscribed, so, please email me Ian Campbell to let me know if you will attend.  It may be necessary to put some people on a wait-list if too many apply.

 

Other support needed:

We are currently looking for support with publicity, specifically flyering and putting-up posters around Stamford and outlying towns and villages.
