SOUTH SOLIHULL U3A PLAY READING GROUPS
1. Blithe Spirits
Co-ordinator: Kris Clark: firstname.lastname@example.org
Unleash your inner thespian and join our friendly group, to read aloud everything from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night & Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard to
Joe Orton’s Loot and Peter Schaffer’s Amadeus.
We meet once a month, in each other’s homes, on a Monday afternoon. A different member of the group gets to choose the script and “direct” for each session, providing a background to the play and assigning the roles. We break for tea and a discussion of the play, which continues at the close of the reading, if time allows. The emphasis is on exploring a range of plays and developing our individual ‘voices’.
We have organised a number of theatre visits, in association with the plays we read and often provide entertainment at Christmas at the monthly SSU3A meeting – for instance a snippet of a Noel Coward play for a 1930’s themed meeting.
2. Armchair Theatre
Co-ordinator: Helen Woodcock: email@example.com
We meet to have fun and also to learn just how skilled actors and actresses have to be to put on a successful play - quite an education!
Armchair Theatre is a newly formed group and meet on the last Tuesday of the month at 14:00. There are 9 members at present, but not all members are available each month.
If you are interested in joining us then please contact Helen Woodcock.
