I've got a new show opening at the WMC next week with liveartshow (part opera, part play) and we have an opportunity for an assistant designer. Just wondered if you have come across anyone recently you would like to give an opportunity to and fits the bill (bright, enthusiastic, available the end of this week and next and would look forward to working with designer Will Holt, SM Kevin Smith and director Martin Constantine). We can only pay expenses (£50). Might suit someone young who wants to build up their CV? If you can think of anyone who fits the bill can you let me know.
It was great to be part of something special last night. Many thanks for involving me. It must have been an amazing challenge to organise such an event and to pull it off was remarkable and well deserved.
Would love some further information on the young critics! Whilst not something I've ever done properly, it certainly interests me.
And any help you can give me as to set design etc would be really helpful!
Hello Guy, sorry its taken me so long to get back to you...I have just been through a similar process of making an application and it's taken me months!.
I hope all is well with you. Our youth theatre are busy working on a new production called 'Butterfly Kiss' which will be touring in February and some of them were recently involved with theatre versus oppression's 'What Happened Next' project which gave 4 young writers opportunities to develop their own plays. It ran over 4 weeks with the audience making suggestions of how they would like to see the work developed. They are hoping to present their plays sometime in January. If you think any of your young critics might be interested in reviewing either I will send more details.
I have just returned from a Children's Theatre Festival in Romania which offered quite a variety of work for the very young.
It would be good to meet up if you have time. Hope all is well with you.
