RSC Open Stages Project

Theatre64 have been selected to join forces with the RSC as part of their Open Stages Project!

Gill Richardson will be directing an ensemble cast in 'Much Ado About Nothing' in October 2014 which will also be performed at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton. With advice and support from RSC professionals it's sure to be a fantastic show!

Additionally, we are running some introductory workshops, prior to casting. Please come along to any of the workshops listed below or email us now to find out more - russ@theatre64.org.

Current confirmed workshops are:

  • Friday 14th March - Exploring the Text
  • Friday 21st March - Stage make up

    In this workshop, we will explore the basics of stage make up. We will discuss what make up can be used for on stage, but most importantly, we will get stuck in and try out some basic techniques. We will work a basic natural make up consisting of foundations, contouring and blush. We will hopefully then have some time to experiment with these tools to create some more interesting effects. It would be useful if participants could bring along a small to medium-sized portable mirror (ideally, at least A5 sized, lady’s make-up mirrors will probably be a bit small to be convenient). Should you have dry or oily skin, it is advisable to bring appropriate creams to treat the skin before application of make up.

  • Friday 4th April - Exploring the Characters
  • Friday 11th April - Introduction to Lighting - Cancelled
  • Friday 25th April - Setting The Mood With Light and Sound
  • Date TBC - Life after World War II
  • Friday 9th May - Physical theatre

    In this workshop, we will explore the range of expressivity available to us through body language. We will explore exercises from plain body work and spatial awareness to physical comedy in a relaxed and fun setting. Comfortable, but not too loose clothing is advisable. Unless you feel very uncomfortable with it, I would advise working the exercises barefoot. A good alternative is to use socks with their toes and heels cut off.

  • Friday 16th May - Auditions #1
  • Monday 19th May - Auditions #2
  • Friday 6th June - Rehearsals begin (D-Day!)
  • Saturday 28th - Voice Workshop with RSC practitioner Michael Corbidge. Limited places are available and charges will apply.

Please note that these dates might change. Please check the web site nearer the time just in case.

No Man's Land

by Mike Hills

Two men meet in no man's land in the middle of battle. They wear different uniforms... enemies. But they do not try to kill each other immediately. Slowly they begin to talk and an enemy turns into something different, something more human.

This play poses the question; when does an enemy become a person? What sort of individual can still pull the trigger when the uniform in front of them has a story, a face or a personality?

Shakers Restirred

by John Godber and Jane Thornton

South Hill Park Logo

New Performances at South Hill Park's Studio Theatre

Please book tickets for this performance at the South Hill Park website!

A night of celebration for a birthday girl; drinks and a meal for couples and groups of friends; a chance for the lads to check out the local talent available. All these scenarios are brought to life in John Godber's "Shakers", the cocktail bar where the waitresses cast an experienced eye over their customers and dream of better things to come.

They are Carol, Adele, Nicky and Mel - and they work in the cocktail bar from Hell. Theatre64 invites you out for a few drinks for this revue of life as a waitress. One plant, four actresses, 37 roles - one night to remember...

Reviews for previous performances

"Shakers was excellent; quite the funniest production I've seen in a long time."

Patrick Windsor Brown

"An entertaining evening - the play was well directed and produced with great effect, using only 8 boxes and 4 chairs. The slick choreography, excellent mime and a fast and racy pace brought to life by four excellent actors in various roles the busy, boring and seedy side of Shakers Cocktail Bar."

A. Walker

"Really enjoyed SHAKERS, and all credit to Theatre 64 for their production. The casting for the GIRLS! was inspired, not a weak link in the performances. Will certainly support Theatre 64 in the future. Keep up the good work!"

David & Jacky Smith
