We are planning a comic take on Hamlet for the Sevenoaks Drama Festival, 11 March. Call Phil if you fancy being part of this 4 hander, or pitch up to the Tempest auditions at the hall on 22/10, where we will have an alternate space. There will be rehearsals during the working week, so this will not be suitable for everyone. Here is the Audition Brief.
The Festival is over, but the melody lingers on. If you missed Macbeth, then our photo archive will be published soon. As for Bard with a Beat, our offering of songs and readings, Click Here to see Robert Piwko's recording of a 'Brush Up Your Shakespeare' rehearsal. Or if you are in a more contemplative mood, listen to Friett Minor descanting on the perfidiousness of men.....just click the arrow under.
The Society was founded in 1997 to promote and enjoy the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, giving members the chance to get involved both on and off the stage.
We mount a full-scale open-air Shakespeare production once a year, most recently as part of the Sevenoaks Summer Festival, and arrange a variety of activities during the year, such as workshops and theatre visits, as well as social events.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Although we are based in Sevenoaks and district we draw our membership from a wide area in west Kent and southeast London, New members are always welcome. Call Phil for a chat on 07841 871681.
