'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.

Latest update 15.11.19

Hello, fellow Thesps! 

Several new additions this time; South Devon Players have dates for their production of 'The Great Gale of Brixham', and we now also have dates for 'Le Coq au Vin' from Peter Whittle. Do we have any venues as yet, Peter?
 
BOADS (Brixham Operatic) is looking for a director for their October 2020 production. 
 
TAADFest is taking nominations for their One Act Play competition, organised by Freda Welton. They already have an item from Teignmouth Tykes, so please get your company together and submit a play... This is a great way to give your members, who do not want the commitment of a full-length production, the opportunity to go on stage. Contact Freda for more information.
 
Teignmouth Players are holding a second audition for their production of "The Tempest" (performance dates 18th - 22nd February, including a Saturday matinee) on  22nd November at 7.30 and Saturday 23rd November at 3.00pm at the Ice Factory Studio Theatre. They require a 'Prospero', and 'Antonio', his brother. (this part could be played by a female)  (performance dates 18th - 22nd February, including a Saturday matinee).
 
The Autumn flush of good productions is well under way, so why not choose from the list and go to support another society.... how else will you know how good you are?! 
 
Best wishes, John.
