Did you see us at the Treacle Market? maybe you joined in and helped throw “potatoes” around. although casting is going well, we still need a few more actors for named roles such as shop keepers/stall holders, militia, potboys(and girls), landlady/lord of the coaching Inn etc. and we also need at least 70 extras willing to dress up in 1812 attire and be urchins, families and individuals out doing their marketing, out of town rioters and onlookers.
We need actors to come along to a rehearsal ASAP and extras to let John ( sambajohn1@ yahoo.com )or Sam know they are coming and then come to a couple of the rehearsal/ workshops later on.
Here are the dates for the Potato Riot Actor’s workshops/Rehearsals
Tuesday Feb 28th,
Wednesday March 8th
Wednesday March 22nd
Tuesday March 28th,
Wednesday April 5th.
All 7:00pm to 10pm
All at ArtSpace unless notified otherwise.
Dress Rehearsal April 9th, probably most of the day.
There are lots of different characters, some speaking and some not, so there should be something for everyone. Sam Medway will be leading the sessions and helping to get people into the right role for them.
Do invite friends and family to get involved too as we still need lots more community actors and extras.
Oh and don’t forget its Potato Riot Tuesdays every Tuesday between 12:00noon and 9:00pm at Artspace where we are making props, building sets and sorting out all of the events management stuff. The kettle is always on!
The next open meeting is at Artspace on Tuesday 7th Febuary 7:00pm – 8:30. There’s lots to catch up on and lots to plan so hope to see you all there. Feel free to invite anyone along. We’ll be starting to sign people unto community actor roles for the street theatre as well as sorting out all sorts of other behind the scenes jobs.
Don’t forget tickets for the Feast are now on sale on the website.
