Parallel Lines Assistant Director post show thoughts

It has been a week since 'Parallel Lines' finished and I'm pleased to say the audience response has been amazing, for example:"I’m still buzzing with the exhilaration of seeing Parallel Lines last night at the Ffyrnes, Llanelli.  The script was powerful and relevant, and the staging was simple but so effective in its focussed austerity.  Best of all, it featured four highly-talented actors all of whom gave brilliant performances.  Thank you very much, Dirty Protest, for a wonderful evening to…See More

Parallel Lines (Day 4 of Assistant Director)

Great to be back with the team today after my weekend in London doing the National Theatre Connections 500 course. I am absolutely loving the final script- the additions and alterations made last week have transformed this script from a great piece of writing into a truly exciting and breath taking script. I have attached a couple of photos from the first couple of read throughs with free movement- the only rule that was added was to not use the chairs as chairs... I can't wait to work further…See More

Profile Information

What I do:
Trying my hand at a little bit of everything
A little more about me:
I am most proud of my recent productions at the Richard Burton Theatre, Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. In 'Alice in Wonderland jr.' I made a 6 ft high, 5 piece Cheshire Cat puppet (inspired by the English National Ballet) which was operated by three children and two adults. We also flew the Butterfly! In 'Oliver' I managed a cast of 45 performers, 10 volunteer crew, a volunteer orchestra, musical director and assistant director. This production was an epic and successful introduction into full scale musical theatre productions. I am also proud of my creative work including devised pieces stimulated by Psychological issues such as PTSD. I would love the opportunity to explore more Psychology within my work and choreograph for a professional musical.
Location:
Cardiff
Projects I’m working on:
I currently teach musical theatre whilst seeking professional creative opportunities such as choreography and directing work.

Parallel Lines: Tech Day Teaser Photos

Very excited to be at Chapter today for the tech rehearsal of Dirty Protest's 'Parallel Lines'. Having seen the 2012 production here at Chapter the initial and most noticeable difference for audience members is going to be the set. From the 2012 naturalistic kitchen where we saw Melissa's unmatching and disorganised…

Parallel Lines: Day before the tech

With the tech team in the theatre rigging the lights and building the set the cast are running lines and blocking with Director, Catherine, and Stage Manager, Emily. This is the final opportunity before we tech in the theatre to confirm which word they stand on or which angle the chair should be placed at. The cast are in good spirits with the ability to have fun with the lines now which Gareth (playing Simon) informs me is a great position to be in as no- one will be thrown during a show if…

Parallel Lines 2 days before the tech

This morning we added Simon and Julia into the finalised version of the physicalized hair cutting scene. The tension was incredible. The music is fantastic. The performances are captivating. This is not a show to be missed! It will have you on the edge of your seat. There is so much to see you should see it more than once!

Following on from the hair cutting scene Julia and Simon are struggling with the repercussions and hoping that time will help to heal their relationships.  Cast are…

Hi Sophie

Welcome to the WalesLab group! Have a nosey round and get stuck in.

Just to let you know that we have another shortlisting day approaching on the 29th Nov. Give me a shout if you want to have a chat about a future project that you think might be right for WalesLab.

Hey Sophie! Hope you're well? I haven't been on here in a while and have just seen your post about the National Theatre performance and just wondered if you had all the parts filled or were still looking for people? Thanks, Naomi :D
