June's SCAB was great and if you missed it you truly missed out. A wonderful and generous night of brilliant, varied performance based work with a lovely, constructive audience. 

July's SCAB will take place at The Moon Cardiff on Womanby Street in Cardiff on July 31st. We'll be there from 7 with the first act kicking off at 8. The venue is fully accessible and completely brilliant. 

A night of new live art and performance. Whether this is your first time trying an idea, one in development or you've just come along to gawk at the amazing displays of talent this is a night for you.

A brilliant and insightful audience prepared to give you support and constructive criticism on how to develop your work and take it further. Invaluable whether you're a new artist or have years of experience. 

Performances between 10-20 minutes in length. The new, the strange, the experimental, the weird and different. Move, sing, make noises, say words if it counts as performance or live art we want it. Try out some choreography, a devised piece or maybe just ramble in to a microphone. Basically if you've got live work and you're you're struggling to find a platform to test it on we're for you! 

So if you want to pick at your SCAB and show us what you've got send us an email with an artist bio, a bit about the piece you'll be bringing and its expected length. Send emails to:

Male Actors Needed

Hi everyone I'm Mikayla McCarthy I'm with The Ghost Room Theatre Company based in Newport.

Currently we are working on a play we have written called An Evening with Poe and are in need of 4 male actors. The play is a sort of murder mystery with our own ghost room spin on things, we like to perform in venues that fit the setting of the play, for example one of our past plays The Dragon's Backbone was set in a tavern and so we performed it in the upstairs of a social club. 

The play we are doing; An Evening with Poe is about a group of aristocrats who have gathered together sharing their love of Edgar Allan Poe and to hear the renowned story teller Miss Aveugle recite some of Poe's works, but things turn sour and someone loses their life while a set of jewels are stolen by the elusive thief The Raven and it is up to blind storyteller Miss Aveugle to deduce who both the murderer is and the identity of The Raven.

There is an element of improv. required, but not much as it's 95% script.

As I said we are looking for 4 male actors.

We rehearse in the centre of Newport so easy to get to, we cannot pay you or pay expenses, but this is an opportunity not to be missed, please message me for more details if you wish.

Head on over to our facebook page to find out more

Thank you

The Mr and Mrs Clark Medicine Show is in Newport next week as part of Comedy Port at the URBAN Shop Project in John Frost Square 12th and 13th October. Tickets from the Riverfront are just £5.
“Dangerous, Unruly, Hilarious, Unpredictable, Fun”

The Medicine Show, often run out of town, believed to be the bringer of disease or ill at ease, is the last bastion of hope for the balding, the infirm or the impotent. Mr and Mrs Clark's Medicine Show is an alternative to alternative therapy. It is a performative pill box for the love sick, the aching boned and the snake bitten. A show where you, the audience, are in our prescriptive minds and we want to help you all. We want to remedy your ailments or scare them clean away. In desperate times we cling to desperate measures.

“Great. Unpredicatble and so engaging – I was hooked from the start and enjoyed the mayhem.” – Audience feedback from Incling, Wales Millennium Centre August 2011.

Mr and Mrs Clark present their Medicine Show, developed through The Incubator Project at the Wales Millennium Centre and with the support of Miligi’s Cardiff and Ricky White.
