Bonjourno LUTG comrades. Welcome to my Friday evening newsletter, I hope I find you well and in tact. I’ve just finished an exam, which went mediocre at best, a feeling which I’m sure none of you talented bunch can relate to. Now, to business.
Rehearsals are well under way for our shows this term and everyone is acting and stuff. It promises to be a whirlwind of theatre (‘a bloody good romp’ – Jack Maidment, LIFETIME MEMBER (2016) 2017), kicking off with Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens on the 5th – 7th June in D2 Bar in Lancaster City Centre. After that, we go to the Storey for Proof on the 8th – 10th June – which is a very special occasion for one of our most illustrious members, Abbie Jones, as it’s her final performance as a student with LUTG! Then, things are getting mysterious with And Then There Were None on the 13th – 15th June at the Storey. Last but not least, we have The Diary of Anne Frank, on Saturday 17th and Monday 19th June, now having moved venue to the Storey as well. All very exciting!
This Saturday, a very talented chap and an LUTG alumni, Callum Berridge, is helping to run a workshop on monologue technique with a new theatre company he has founded with others, Hollow Scene Theatre. It will take place in the Jack Hylton Room (next to the Great Hall on campus) from 10 – 11:30 am.
OPEN DRAMA NIGHT – Open drama night will take place on the 26th May from 6pm in Country Bar. Message the social secretaries Ewen and Rose if you want to perform anything in particular. If not, come along to have a pint (doesn’t have to be alcoholic!) and chill.
TECH TRAINING WORKSHOPS – Tech training workshops will take place from 11am – 6pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May in Bowland 6. These will be very helpful for anyone who hopes to be involved with a show backstage, so come along, even if you’re a beginner!
OSCARS – Oscars will take place Monday 26th June at 7pm. It’s going to be a fun-filled night of awards that don’t really matter and, more importantly, saying farewell to those who are graduating and celebrating the year’s work. Information regarding tickets will be released soon, so keep an eye on the LUTG Facebook page.
With thanks to Jack Maidment for sitting across from me drinking Carlsberg while I typed this,
