Alnwick Theatre Club, (along with all the other amateur societies that use the Playhouse), is delighted that we have such a wonderful facility here in the town.
In April 2013, prior to their production of Calendar Girls, The Theatre Club held a coffee morning at the Playhouse, to raise money for HospiceCare Northumberland. The hospice is the main provider of palliative care in the area. We were pleased to work with representatives from the hospice in organising the event.
Cast members held a victoria sponge cake competition, which was judged by a senior judge from the Women's Institute. We would like to thank everone who arranged and supported this event.
In October 2011 we were pleased to be included in a "Showcase of Cultivation Night" which enabled local organisations that are involved with the Playhouse, to demonstrate to an invited audience, their activities, - and to emphasize how important the Playhouse is to the community of Alnwick.
The photos below are of the display created by theatre club members to show costumes made by our wardrobe dept and picturing various productions, featuring pantomimes, plays and comedies.
New members are always amazed at the size of the stage at the Playhouse and all the facilities we can make use of. For example people interested in learning and using professional lighting equipment are certainly well catered for. In recent years we have held lighting workshops which have been extremely well attended.
The photo below shows the set that was assembled and decorated by Theatre Club members for the play "Amadeus". It was further enhanced by digital images being projected to the rear of the set.
"Amadeus" was one of the most ambitious plays attempted by the Theatre Club, with demanding roles for the actors, and a great deal of involvement by wardrobe, props, lighting and sound, and stage management throughout the production.
As you will see there is plenty of scope for members to be involved in set construction, and we have been delighted with the standard of the sets that we have achieved.
The week-end before a show, is particularly busy, with the set being assembled, painted etc, lighting and sound cues rehearsed; and costumes and props delivered to the dressing rooms and green room
