It's been a long haul through the Covid crisis, hasn't it? But it does now look like 'normal' may now slowly start to return. So ...
WHAT'S NEXT FOR US..?
A NEW DISCWORLD PLAY!
We plan to stage a new Terry Pratchett Discworld play in November. Details HERE - or click on the image above
'LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST'
Like everyone else, we have been, of course, at the mercy both of the coronavirus and the government restrictions put in place to control it.
We'd been 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 as restrictions tightened, or as relaxations were delayed. Eventually, we decided to video as much as we could. In a back garden. Competing with the weather and the environment!
There are links to the footage we shot HERE.
DRAMA IN LOCKDOWN
The Covid-19 lockdown has meant that we've 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, were all obliged to stay at home, we recorded some well-known Shakespeare soliloquies so we can still virtually meet up :-).
You can find our mini videos HERE.
THINKING OF JOINING?
As a Club, we've been staying in touch through social media and with online video pub nights, play readings and rehearsal evenings.
We are now meeting face-to-face again, but we do need to ensure these take account of Covid advice. If you're interested, drop us an EMAIL so we can let you know the plan, and keep you in the loop.
A BIT ABOUT US
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 rehearse, on Monday and Thursday evenings (19:30 til 21:00ish) at the Blackbird Leys Community Centre. Because of the need to maintain some form of Covid alertness, we need you to EMAIL us first if you are thinking of coming along.
Once a play's been cast and is well underway, there may be fewer opportunities to be actively involved in the show, but - subject to the Covid measures above - you'll still be very welcome to come along and see what you think of us. 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.
