Actiontrack SEPTEMBER Newsletter

Directors Note:

What a Summer!  As busy as I can remember.  Show building, studio sessions, jam nights and album production, music, spectacle, circus and more.  Crazy tales of lost islands, paper strongman acts, super-beasts, courtroom dramas and shedloads of great performances, singing and music-making.  Well done to everyone.  Time to refresh now for the autumn.  Keep an eye out for 'The Story of a Stone' on Wellington Monument and 'Power through Music' a new project for young music makers coming very soon as well as all our regular work. 
 
Of course, I must say a personal 'Bon Voyage' to Molly who has been at the very heart of Actiontrack for her 10 years with us.  Her skills, creativity and generosity-of-spirit will I am sure only grow and I, as we all do, wish her well in whatever comes next. 

The Story of a Stone, a new project with The National Trust starting soon

The Story of A Stone 

We are very excited to have been asked by the National Trust to create a performance with people from the Wellington community to celebrate the laying of the first foundation of Wellington Monument.  This will take place at the monument on the evening of Saturday, October 21
st 
- 200 years to the day since the laying of the first stone. 

 

If you (or your group) would like to be involved then please come along to Wellington Arts Centre on Sunday, Sept 17
th 
at 2.00pm to find out more.  We're looking for local actors, singers, musicians, makers, and anyone who'd like to be involved in this unique opportunity.   It will be a short, fairly full-on rehearsal and production process run mostly on Sunday afternoons from mid-September and up to show day for:

 

Actors - to perform the piece

Musicians - to play the music (instruments need to be portable for obvious reasons)

Banner makers and bearers - to support the spectacle and performance

Chorus - to sing and get involved in the big moments

Costume/Make-up/Technical support

Anyone else who's up for it!

 

 

Any age or experience level welcome but please note that any young people up to 12yrs must be accompanied by an adult.
