'Thespis' - a newsletter of amateur productions in the area

'Thespis' is a newsletter, produced by John Miles, of all the information on amateur drama productions in the Torbay and South Devon area.

The aim is for local groups to share information, help each other with casting, prop loans and to avoid clashes of production choices and dates.

If you are interested in taking part in amateur drama shows then this is the place to check out which groups exist, what shows are coming up and when auditions are being held.

Have fun on the stage or behind the scenes.

Hello, Thesps!

A few shows come to an end this week...see the listing...... I gather the Shaldon Panto is all but sold out....but there are still some more pantos left to go. 

 
Freda has sent me  the entries for this year's TAADFest; all enclosed in this listing. We have three sessions this time, with the prizes being awarded on the Sunday. The winning production goes on to the next heat of the competition, but the fascination these competitions have, I find, is in the detailed criticism the adjudicator gives after each session. Much discussion is triggered between those who agree or disagree with the comments! Sometimes there's more drama in the bar afterwards than during the plays themselves.......
 
Please let me know what's going on out there, don't rely on me picking up information from Facebook or websites. 'The Thespis' goes out to over one hundred people now., as well as featuring on BATS website.
 
I'm at 'Bowing Out' tonight, at Brixham Theatre...... see you there?!  
 
Regards, John.
