Theatre Menu September to December 2019

SUMMARY VERSION – this includes a production synopsis, age suitability, touring dates and any explicit content. You can use this to quickly browse all productions to help you make a short list of shows you would like to programme. Please remember to double check technical requirements in the Complete Version.

COMPLETE VERSION – This includes all the information you will need to determine whether the production is suitable for you. Always check the technical requirements and playing area.   

Dates are either specific or marked in months. Once we have an idea of who’s interested in which shows we can then set actual dates. Shows are in alphabetical order

Selecting Your Shows and Developing an Audience

Think carefully about your target audience, what does your faithful audience enjoy and which shows might draw a different demographic to your hall.

Are there other groups using your hall which you may be able to collaborate with to develop your audience, for example playgroup, fitness group, young adults. What about the scouts or the local parent council, young farmers club, Rotary?

Overall most people enjoy a live performance but getting them through the door is a harder task, but once they experience an event they will be more open to engaging again.

Have you tried roadside signs, is there a community newsletter, Facebook, banners, asking a school to send flyers home with children. Many of our promoters have tried one or more of the above and they’ve experienced a positive impact on audience figures.

Are there young people (14 – 26 years) in your community who may wish to volunteer with you. If so they could join our Young Promoter Scheme. Please get in touch if you are interested in discussing this further.

Is your space flexible enough so that following a performance you can have a social gathering in another space whilst the theatre company are clearing their set. A chance to chat and have a fly cup or drink?

Some of the companies and artists offer workshops (some for free, some paid) are there groups within your community who may be interested in participating in a workshop. It’s not always about asking people to get up and act. For example, if you have a book club an actor may be able to talk about how they create a character, a local amateur dramatic group may like an acting workshop.

Think about performance time. Is 7:30pm the best time?

Autistic Friendly Performances

To make your events more accessible I’ve asked theatre companies to provide information on the suitability of their performances for audiences with additional needs.

In some instances some performances are not suitable either due to content or technical aspects, for example, loud music or flashing lights. Some performances will be suitable, and the companies are willing to work with us to make minor changes if we wish to advertise a performance as a relaxed or autistic friendly performance. In other instances, changes cannot be made but we will be able to provide information on our website regarding certain aspects so that attendees can be forewarned and know what to expect within the performance.
