Calling all directors, old and new!

It is great to see so many new members joining our theatre group, some have no experience of amateur theatre and others have been involved as thespians all over the world.

It goes without saying you are all very welcome and we hope you enjoy being a member of the last theatre group in Europe, geographically speaking that is.

At a recent committee meeting it was decided to move back to three productions a year, beginning in 2019. This is something we have not been able to achieve for quite a few years.

Which means we are looking for members to offer to direct in 2019.

We already have a production planned for March 2019; Ladies Day by Amanda Whittington to be directed by first time director Angela Theobold.


What are we looking for?

Studio production June 2019
In June 2019 we would like to stage a “studio” style production and book a small theatre, for example Teatro Mascarenhas in Silves that we have used in the past. The show should have an uncomplicated set and a small cast.

It could be an opportunity for a first time director to cut their teeth, or for a more experienced director to stage a show they have always wanted to do and not got around to… yet!

Family show November 2019
We have not performed a family show since Pollen in 2016 and a pantomime in 2014 so, we would like to stage such a show in late autumn of 2019 with a big cast and, hopefully, involve some of the Algarve’s younger generation.

It could be a full blown pantomime, or a family show such as A Christmas Carol or Wind in the Willows, but again we would like to hear from you with your own ideas.

Our idea would be to book Lagoa Auditorium for this show


What should I do now?

If you are interested in directing either of the above shows we would be delighted to hear from you.

Please speak to any member of the committee to express your interest and we will subsequently invite you to one of our meetings to explore your ideas and how we might make it happen for you and for the group.
