Last call for Jacob Marley - paid role at Chapter

A modern adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' by Charles Dickens
Jacob Marley is written as a ruthless 'excellent man of business', a man who just wants to watch the world burn and laughs at the flames he has lit.

You, like me, might be accustomed to this ritual without even realising that you are in fact, like me, brilliant at looking for things. There’s something about repeating the word out loud that connects the object and relevant images in your mind; every time pressing ‘next’ for a new image that might match. Eventually an image and the object hold together, a structure is built, a bridge…

Century Theatre - The First Mobile Theatre is under threat of closure

The Century Theatre is thought to be the only solid structure, fully equipped, mobile theatre in the world. The dream of John Ridley, an engineer, was turned into reality in a Hinckley yard between 1948 and 1952 .

Converted from wartime military trailers and tractors, the theatre travelled in convoy of 32 vehicles to provide quality theatre around the country for 23 years.  The convoy would often travel at no more than 8 miles an hour.…

Pay rates in the USA

This article is from the Breitbart


This week, Carnegie Hall stagehands who make on average $419,000 a year went on strike, forcing the cancellation of a gala that would have benefited nonprofit artistic and education programs.

 I am studying theatre at Falmouth University and this project is the part of my third year PIC module (Practice in context) where for twelve weeks the student artist embarks on a self-led project. At the end of year two I had…
