Theatre Playgroup!

A group for the 'Theatre Playgroup' project.

This is (initially) a 6 week project where Actors, Directors, Writers and .. well anyone else who is interested can work together. Reading, work-shopping and exploring a published script and then going on to create new exciting work which we share at the end of the 6 weeks!

Hi James. Really interested in this. Have tried to download the form but it won't let me write anything on it. Is it just me ( most likely!) and if so any ideas what I should do. Xx

Hello Everyone!

  Well the details are finalised and we're ready to go... and I have to say I'm very excited!

  Theatre Playgroup will officially begin on the 21st August 2014 at 6.30pm. Everyone is invited, all I ask is that you complete the simple form (link below) and email it back to me, so I have an idea of who will be coming.

  All the details are on the form, but if you have any questions, either post them here or email me on:

Looking forward to working with you!

Hi Kelly, Naomi and everyone else who has joined the group, great to see so many faces, I think we're going to have a lot of fun and produce some exciting work!

Sorry it's taken me a while to reply, I've been an international jet setter for the past few weeks, but now am back in Wales and ready and raring to go!

So a bit of further information about the project...

The sessions for the initial run of the project will be held at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay, I'm working at the moment to organise dates where things won't clash across the 6 weeks.

Very soon I'll be sending out some application forms (sounds very formal.. it's not meant to be!!) to find out which element you'd like to be involved with in the project - initially writer, director, or actor. There will be opportunity to cross over, but it's to make sure we have a good spread of people.

There is no cost involved as it's being met by NTW TEAM and the Wales Milennium Centre, the only proviso is that you have to commit to the 6 weeks, (or let us know before if you can't make a session!) and to be a member of the TEAM group on here! 

If you haven't already contributed to the discussions at the top of the group page please get involved and give your opinion, this is a new venture and we want to make sure it's a success and as useful as possible to actors, writers and directors so we need your opinions!

Any questions please feel free to friend me and send me a message on here

Best Wishes,

Hi Isabelle an Rowena! 

   It would be great to see you after Christmas Isabelle, Break a leg on tour! We're running the initial sessions from the end of August, just finalising dates at the moment Rowena, but it will be at the WMC in the Bay. If it proves a success it'd be great to spread it far and wide!

Sounds fantastic where and when?
Comment by Isabelle Paige on June 27, 2014 at 23:26

Hi James : ) fancy seeing you here! This sounds like a great idea. Sadly I'll be away most of the time from Sept - Dec this year with a show, but I thought I'd join the group so that hopefully I can get involved after Xmas. Cheers xx
