FINDING THE CHARACTER Workshop

Over 16's only.

£35 per person

It is generally agreed that one of the most magical experiences for any actor is that moment when the character they are playing truly comes alive; when the performer finds they are saying and doing things that are not in their normal nature because they are speaking from the thoughts of another.

This workshop will examine some of the different strategies we can use for finding that character and lifting them off the page. It will look at widening the range of characters that we feel we can play and will consider techniques for accessing them.

We will find ways to deconstruct, demystify and analyse a character in order to rebuild them in a way that can be played effectively and with truth.

Using games, exercises, improvisation and script work, we will meet some very interesting people… and then get to take them home!

This workshop is of particular benefit to those who have not had the opportunity for formal training in drama, and is geared both to professional performers and amateur groups.

Beauty and the Beast - The Pantomime

  • PERRYWAY PLAYERS & LIVEWIRE AMATEUR DRAMATICS SOCIETY (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We are excited to announce that our 2018 pantomime will be performed in the first week of January at Cadbury Hall, Frampton on Severn, Gloucestershire, GL2 7HG.

Written by Bradford and Webster and in arrangement with NODA, our 2018 pantomime see the production team of Rhys Maule as produced, Craig Hunt debuts as director and fresh to the group is Nathan French as choreographer. The team have worked together before on projects outside of the group and Beauty and the Beast will see the team debut with this production. 

A dramatic pantomime full of colourful characters, Belle lives in the village of Petit Pois with her mean older sisters, Chardonnay and Lambrini.

Their impoverished mother, Madame Dolores Lilly Chantilly Tres Jolie (or Dolly Jolly), is keen to marry them off to rich husbands. The vain and egotistical Jean-Claude and the spoiled but good-natured Prince Louis both have their eye on Belle.

Chardonnay and Lambrini want Jean-Claude for themselves and continually try to outdo each other, to get him to notice them.

Meanwhile, the evil Countess Cruella is obsessed with Prince Louis and, in a jealous rage, she turns him into a hideous beast. The girls’ Papa, lost in the mountains, is imprisoned by the angry Beast. Papa’s horse, Gigi, then leads Belle to the Beast’s castle, where Belle offers to take her father’s place in the Beast’s dungeon.

Belle’s kindness calms the Beast’s anger and he falls in love with her…… Will true love prevail or will the beast remain cursed forever.
