WHAT'S NEXT FOR US?
Like everyone else, we are, of course, at the mercy both of the coronavirus and the government restrictions put in place to control it. Our future planning is naturally subject to factors outside our control. We have to work on the basis that we will all return to something like 'normal life' at some point.
Currently, we are rehearsing Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost.
When we started, we had planned to stage it 'normally' but those plans have had to be abandoned. We're currently filming scenes so that we can capture the show (or as much as we can while people are still available) on film. Details HERE... or click on the image above.
BEYOND 'LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST'?
We do plan to stage a new Terry Pratchett Discworld play in November. Details HERE.
DRAMA IN LOCKDOWN
The Covid-19 lockdown meant that the Studio Theatre Club had to meet, and rehearse, online -- and also that we haven't been able to perform for you at the Unicorn Theatre in Abingdon.
So - while we, and you, are all obliged to stay at home, we thought we'd record some well-known Shakespeare soliloquies so we can still virtually meet up :-).
See what we've been getting up to in lockdown! You can find our mini videos HERE.
We hope all our followers are keeping safe during this crisis.
As a Club, we're all staying in touch through social media and with online video pub nights, play readings and rehearsal evenings.
We are still planning for future plays. If you want to be kept in the loop, please do EMAIL us, so we can let you know what's happening and how you can get involved.
We take social distancing VERY seriously!
The Studio Theatre Club is a very friendly amateur drama club based in Oxford. We enjoy staging a wide range of plays and we want our audiences to see the best shows possible.
We also meet socially outside rehearsals - for informal parties, meals, pub nights, girls' nights, lads' nights, sitting around the TV watching DVDs, cinema & theatre visits and other stuff.
We used to rehearse, pre-Covid, on Monday and Thursday evenings (19:30 til 21:00ish) at the Blackbird Leys Community Centre. Currently, we are meeting via Zoom, but we do hope to return to Blackbird Leys very soon.
Once a play's been cast and is well underway, there may be fewer opportunities to be actively involved in the show, but - when retrictions allow - you'll still be very welcome to come along and socialise (even if, for the time being, that can only be on Zoom!). There's always another play in planning, and you'll have the chance to hear more about it that way. Feel free to email us to check on current planning.
If you do decide to give us a go, don't forget we'll be asking you to pay your Club Subscription - £30. This helps towards our overheads, including rehearsal/meeting space, insurance - and this web site.
