New Projects (Spring 2016)

spring

Easter is over – Spring is defiantly in the air – despite the storms – and STG are looking for new projects for the rest of the year and beyond.

If you live in or near Glasgow (in Scotland) you’re welcome to join us – the information you need is here (all you need is enthusiasm and reliability):

And if you have an idea for a show or anything else you’d like us to mull over – drop us a quick email at:

strathclydetheatregroup@hotmail.co.uk

We’re already considering a season of One Act Gothic Melodramas – Dracula, The Murder In The Red Barn, Sweeney Todd, The Body Snatcher’s… that sort of thing – so if you’re interested let us know!

The Winter’s Tale – nearly first night!

Tomorrow is our tech/dress stumble through & then we’re open to the public… Last minute tasks include making a baby bump, emailing everyone about everything, and washing suits fit for Gentlemen Born.

Our soundtrack is a mix of soul, country and Celtic harps… Our bear decision is made… all we need is YOU – our lovely audience.

Tickets can be purchased here:

The Winter’s Tale – Propmaggedon

Props are terrible things designed by demons to be forgotten, tripped over or left on stage when they should be removed.

Props should be kept to an absolute minimum – unless you’ve got a well-trained army of guerrilla stage hands ever ready to ambush a wine glass lingering into a scene set in a hospital (etc etc) – but even then – there still comes a time when the revolting critters have to be rounded up and plonked on the props table.

Luckily Shakespeare pretty much wrote everything to bellowed at the gallery without too much palaver.

The worst thing we’re facing is working out exactly what he means by a fardel (it’s the box – the damn box) and the best thing is that there’s only 20 or so small items on our list…

Although – we may be in denial about the prospect of finding Rosemary and Rue in Glasgow.

Come and see if we succeed next week! We open on Wednesday 24th February it runs until Saturday 27th.
