Hello everyone,

Please help with this, retweet it, digg it, facebook it, do whatever you do but please help me promote this great little charity auction on behalf of The Rondo theatre. A great little venue in Bath that has been really supportve of New Old Friends and numerous other aspiring companies but receives no Arts Council funding. The proceeds of the auction go toward its outreach work (youth theatres, tea concerts for the elderly, adult acting classes and a writers’ forum).

It really is a good cause and what’s more it looks like it will be a great night. Tickets are selling quickly and we don’t want you to miss out on this entertaining and valuable event. Canapés will be provided by the highly acclaimed, One Beaufort restaurant, with comedy auctioneering provided by Pavel Douglas of the Natural Theatre Company.

Tickets to the event cost you only £15. Included in the price of the ticket you will receive £10 in “Rondo Bucks” to spend on the auction and £5 of bar tokens to use at the bar.

Donations already confirmed by partners include: 

  • Thermae Bath Spa
  • The Roman Baths
  • Tickets to Bath Rugby
  • Afternoon Tea for Two on board the Royal Crescent Hotel’s award-winning luxury river-launch
  • Performance day,  and schools workshop with The Natural Theatre Company
  • A sneak-preview tour of the newly refurbished Holburne Museum
  • A Feast of Larkhall (locally sourced gourmet ingredients to make up a dinner party for you and your friends)

For tickets, please send a cheque (payable to The Rondo Trust) to:
 
The Rondo Theatre
St. Saviours Road
BATH BA1 6RT

 
Or, you can pop your cheque and booking form into this envelope, and drop it into The Rondo (you can pick up our new season’s brochure while you’re there!) when you pass by! If you have any questions about the event please do not hesitate to contact us at admin@rondotheatre.co.uk and we look forward to seeing you on the 11th!

Back home

Well wasn’t that fun? A month in Shanghai that flew by and what seemed like the speed on sound. I’ve been working for the Natural Theatre Company on behalf of the British Council at the UK Pavilion for Expo 2010. It was incredible, the thing didn’t look real.

We got back home at midnight Sunday (7am Monday in our heads) and on Monday afternoon I met with Ian McGlynn to discuss his casting of Anti-Panto. We were inundated with young female applicants but a little light on older males, as a result Malus is about twenty years younger than written. Take that Oil of Olay! I’m really excited about the show, the read through before China went very well indeed and the cast sound great. Doron of Sketchy at Best will be returning to the New Old Friends family and we couldn’t be happier to have him. Tickets are already selling well but there are still seats to be had – 01225 463362. Book ’em up.

In other New Old Friends news; Sketchy at Best hits the road next May for the company’s first national tour! We are still finalising the last few venues but all is looking groovy. The company is like a Peugot; we go from strength to strength. We are not like a Citroen; pseudo teutonic French rubbish. I leave you with a dressing room shot from Shanghai, it’s me and Heff in too much lycra being bees.



Lazy lazy Feargy

I’ve been at a meeting with the excellent Natural Theatre Company helping plan out the template for their educational package today. It was a fun meeting, very theatre, everyone sat around a table with a flip chart and cups of coffee. Very informal, it cracked me up how close to the stereotype it played.

As fun as it was, it was actually pretty tiring which coupled with a lack of sleep last night has left me shattered and lazy in terms of blogging. Need to conserve my strength as I’m off to see Inception tonight. Was foiled in my attempt last week so had to settle for the lovely Toy Story 3. I end with a trailer for Inception.
