Zooming!

AdministratorRehearsal

We have managed to substitute our socially close rehearsals at LSBU for socially distancing rehearsals via Zoom. There are some issues with the technology and it is a different way of doing things … a taste of the ‘new normal’? Having completed Shakespeare’s As You Like It we are about to take on Sheridan’s School for Scandal.

It’s absurd

AdministratorRehearsal

This year we are exploring absurdist theatre as well as writing some of our own material which we might then combine in some (absurd) way. So lots of play reading, creative writing and workshops for now. Once we have a settled idea we will begin the script writing/ production necessary to achieve a performance in November. Updates will follow as … Read More

Love: the only story

Another hit for us at Theatre Peckham. We were sold out for all three performances on 11th and 12th December and had excellent feedback from our audience. Well done to Cathy for her innovative script and for guiding us to here.

We are now busy rehearsing for our summer projects. In line with our objectives as a Community Interest Company we are going to do some ‘in situ’ performances.

This means … Read More

Ruffled Feathers 2019

Homeless

Ruffled Feathers 2019 was a huge success. We sold out both our shows and had to squeeze a few extras in. A few issues with the technology/ lighting but we resolved those in time for the first performance. The venue suited us from a performance perspective though lighting was tricky. This picture of Nina as ‘Homeless’ gives you an idea … Read More

Hard at work in the pub!

AdministratorRehearsal

Filming in The Albert Arms

  This week we have been working on our short film project. One of the scenes in the film required us to ‘borrow’ our local pub The Albert Arms for the morning. Despite not being used to frequenting pubs at that time of the day we manfully rose to the task. Big thanks to the staff of The Albert Arms … Read More

Two-headed fortune teller

AdministratorWorkshop

This week Ben led us in an improvisation workshop. We were put through all kinds of exercises which were both instructive and incredibly funny! Everyone enjoyed the improvisations even when they hadn’t quite got the instructions right! Improvisation is definitely a strength of the company who respond so well to each other’s cues. Towards the end we saw the two-headed … Read More
