Since we're not from Performance Studies, we don't need rooms to rehearse. We'll just do a run-through of the dance in some random hallway.

Continuing with our little Shakespeare on campus retrospective, take a look at the noughties! Two photos from As You Like It (2000), Romeo and Juliet (2003), Macbeth (2005) and Richard III (2008). Lots of green/blue concepts, though that might be the scans. If you have any fun memories, leave a comment!

Do you know anything about the origin of this Elizabethan gown? It was used in A Night at the Audimax (2019) and seems quite old. It is probably the same dress which was used for The Taming of the Shrew (2011) with some alterations. It also looks very similar to the gown used in The Taming of the Shrew (1990), although it seems greener in the scanned photo. Is it a leftover from the costume-hiring-days? Was it worn in both Taming of the Shrew productions on purpose?
I'm also pretty sure we still have the black fascinator worn for The Taming of the Shrew (2011).

If you want to guess, don't scroll down. It's all Shakespeare from the 80s and 90s.

Twelfth Night (88), Measure for Measure (81), two photos from Midsummer Night's Dream (94), Merry Wives of Windsor (98) and a bonus from Midsummer Night's Dream 2016 (G2 Baraniak) because I'm pretty sure that's the fur coat from Merry Wives of Windsor.
We still have that coat, 22 years is not bad going! Of course, we would never buy a new fur coat.

Don't use the word "Webinar" for any online classes just to be safe. Use workshop instead, this word is being used for absolutely everything, even if the class contains zero practical components, so if you are looking for a catch-all term, look no further.

Das Wort "Webinar" ist seit der Corona-Krise ein oft verwendetes Wort 👈. Doch Vorsicht - es ist seit 2003 ein geschütztes Wort... und kann ganz schön teuer werden wer es benutzt‼️

Deadline is tomorrow!

This is a reminder that applications for LOL (Leatss Online Summer School) close on Friday 10th July. If you are still toying with the idea of doing something creative online during the last week in July, now is the chance to work with top professionals from the UK for very moderate fees. We can highly recommend summer school which some HPs have been attending for years.

For anyone still interested in Kate Colgrave-Pope’s course, Monologue Mash-up, Kate has added extra sessions so that those on the waiting list can be accommodated and there is place for one more participant.

Janice Dunn has adapted her course Our Digital Town, separating it into 2 parts so that participants can do either the first, or the second, or both. The first (DEV) will concentrate on the development of the piece (writing/devising), and the second (ACT) on bringing it to life (acting).

All information on courses, timetable and costs, as well as the application form, can be found on the website at www.leatss.lu.

Beauty and the Beast

Searching online, you can find several stories about things going wrong in theatre. This is one of my favourites:

Beauty and the Beast

During a high school production of Beauty and the Beast, where I was assistant costumer and assistant prop master, our director decided that we needed to spice up Gaston’s introduction. You know: in the movie, when Lefou runs in trying to catch the duck/goose that Gaston has just shot out of the sky?

Originally, the actors were going to stroll on stage with our Lefou hauling in the really neat (and real!) taxidermied deer head that we had found in a local thrift store. Now, two days before opening night, our director wants Lefou to run in from off stage and catch a stuffed duck that Gaston has just shot. This, of course, requires two things to work properly as a scene: a gunshot noise, and a stuffed duck.

The gunshot noise, we had covered. Blue-collar, redneck school? Guns aplenty to record. The stuffed duck? Harder than you might have thought to obtain.

Three hunting stores, two taxidermists, and one Pet Supply Store ™, I’d finally found a semi-realistic pheasant squeaky toy. What follows is an account of the ways this dog toy managed to be the nightmare prop of the six-show run.

Opening Night: The stagehand, who was supposed to drop the bird from the ceiling catwalk, missed his cue and didn’t drop it. Lefou’s actor rolls with it and does an excellent job of looking around foolishly before getting cuffed upside the head by Gaston. The stagehand then drops the bird squarely on Gaston’s head. Cue laughter.

Saturday Matinee: Different stagehand throws the bird instead of dropping it and beans Lefou directly in the face with the prop. Lefou falls over. Cue laughter.

Saturday Night: Bird is missing during curtain call. Director hauls the deer head down from its place on the tavern wall and tells Gaston and Lefou to revert to the old blocking i.e. no gunshot, no bird, just walk in with trophy. During Gaston and Lefou’s conversation, gunshot sound goes off and a stagehand throws the bird onto the stage…from the wrong side of the stage. Lefou and Gaston stare at it in awkward silence for a solid thirty seconds before Lefou makes an off-script, subtle joke about Gaston’s gun going off late instead of early. Cue adults in the audience laughing.

Sunday Matinee: Director begs the stagehands to get the cue right at least once. Gunshot and bird prop go off without a hitch. Lefou accidentally catches the prop when it falls from the catwalk. He’s so startled that he caught it that Gaston runs right into him. They drop both the gun and the bird props, and grab the wrong prop in their scramble. Gaston spends the rest of the scene gesturing dramatically with a stuffed pheasant, instead of a gun.

Sunday Night: Director is fed up with bird prop, decides that Lefou should just carry bird prop in after gunshot happens off stage. Lefou accidentally squeezes the prop during the intro conversation, startling both actors into silence with the squeaky toy noise - apparently, neither of them realized it was a dog toy.

Monday Elementary School Show: Lefou walks on stage with the bird. Accidentally drops the prop during the conversation with Gaston. Gaston doesn’t notice the dropped prop and steps on it. Cue depressingly sad squeaky toy noise. Cue ten years olds laughing.

Tonight is the #Nightoflight2020 to draw attention to the event industry which has really felt the effects of the pandemic. The goal isn't to force anyone to ease restrictions just to open venues, it's about bringing attention to the people who lost their jobs and venues that may never bounce back. There is a live stream tonight where a panel will discuss how to save the industry before multiple places have to declare bankruptcy due to still having expenses but not making any money. There is also a live music live stream. Here's the website: https://night-of-light.de/

MYSTERY-Gesellschaftsdrama in der #retrospektivebasildearden 📅 Freitag, 11.2. 17:00 engl. OmeU / Dienstag, 15.2. 20:30 engl. OV THEY CAME TO A CITY GB 1945, Basil Dearden, 78 Min. Mit John Clements, Googie Withers, Raymond Huntley, Renée Gadd u.a. Mystery-Drama, basierend auf einem Theaterstück von J.B. Priestley. Neun Briten und Britinnen werden in eine mysteriöse Stadt versetzt, in der sie sich je nach sozialem Stand und persönlicher Neigung entweder in einem irdischen Paradies des Friedens und der Gleichheit oder in einer Hölle voller Ehrgeiz und Reichtum wiederfinden. 👉 Diese fantastische Allegorie ist eine eindrucksvolle Utopie der Nachkriegszeit und gehört zu den ungewöhnlichsten Spielfilmen aus den Ealing Studios. Wer ist eigentlich Basil Dearden?! 👇 Hierzulande ist der vielfach ausgezeichnete britische Ausnahmeregisseur Basil Dearden bisher nur wenigen Cineast:innen bekannt. Dearden fühlte sich in vielen Genres zuhause. Er inszenierte Komödien, Thriller, Gesellschaftsdramen, Mystery- und Abenteuerfilme — thematisch immer am Puls der Zeit mit einem kritischen und gleichsam humorvollen Blick auf das aktuelle politische Geschehen. — Wir zeigen in der ersten großen Retrospektive im deutschsprachigen Raum insgesamt 35 Filme des britischen Filmregisseurs, Drehbuchautors und Filmproduzenten. Einen Großteil der Filme bringen wir als zeitgenössische 35mm-Filmkopien in der Originalfassung auf die Leinwand; viele Titel liegen uns auch in der restaurierten, digitalen Fassung vor. Von jedem Film zeigen wir die bestmöglich verfügbare Vorführkopie. Die präsentierten Filme werden in einer Publikation besprochen, die begleitend zu dieser Werkschau an der Kasse erhältlich ist. Für die Inhaltsangaben der Filme geht unser Dank an die Autor:innen des begleitenden Katalogs. #basildearden #theycametoacity #jbpriestley #englishfilms #greatbritain #unitedkingdom #originallanguage University Players EnglishTheatre Hamburg #metropoliskinohamburg #kinemathekhamburg

https://leatss.lu/2021/Event39/LOW2021.pdf Hi fellow UPs. Want to learn how to do Shakespeare from an RSC professional? Or work on characters and scenes from recent new writing? Or how about learning to sing a solo from a classic musical from one of the UK's leading singing teachers. The LEATSS short online workshop is a wonderful opportunity to flex your performing chops at affordable prices. Myself and others from the Hamburg Players and FEATS community have really learned a lot from LEATSS. Begins November 13th
I am a Scottish based dramatist who has had professional productions in London and Edinburgh. I have a script which may interest you. It is set in Germany during the post-1945 reconstruction of the country by the Allies and in the period leading up to that time. It is very different I hasten to add from Ronald Harwood's 'Taking Sides'. I'd like to provide you with further info on the play and wonder if there is an e-mail address to which I might write?
