News about our stage show ‘Handbagged’

The ‘Handbagged’ team is ready for a final series of onsite rehearsals. The show will play to a live audience but we’re not sure of the size, the number of shows and of course when it will happen. We are planning to live stream the performance and record it for streaming after post-production as a backup and a new venture to enable us to offer a show to audiences who are anxious about coming to the theatre. We will need […]

ARTISTIC UPDATE FROM PAULINE

‘THE TROJAN WOMEN’, our entry to the KDA Audio Play Festival, is nearing completion thanks to the hard work and patience of our actors and wonderful technical team. They have shown such dedication and perseverance to get it right and make it sound as if we are all outside the walls of Troy and not scattered around South East London and Kent hidden in wardrobes, shrouded with duvets to dub down the sound. Now it’s the ‘big edit’ to add […]

Could you be our new Box Office Manager?

Paul, our current Manager has this to say about the role:- It’s a great role for being in the centre of what is going on at BLT. You meet lots of people, both the creative types and audience members, and you’re doing something which is, of course, critical to the theatre: no box office, no tickets, no money, no theatre! I’ve also been able to bring about quite a lot of change: eight years ago, most bookings were made over […]

Another 2 opportunities to be in a filmed performance

‘Wilde Wilde Women’ inspired by the plays of Oscar Wilde. As Wilde is in the public domain, a project which takes scenes from his plays celebrating in particular his fantastic female characters (though his male characters will be included) would film well as they are quite static and rely upon the sparkling language. If you are interested in being involved in a Wilde project please let Pauline Armour know by 1 February at the latest so that scenes can be […]

Could you be in a filmed performance?

We are looking at small cast plays and scenes from plays which we could film in a similar way to the BBC’s ‘Staged’ with David Tennant and Martin Sheen. Of course we won’t have the BBC’s highly sophisticated production team, but we are investing in some green screen equipment which we can lend to participants to film themselves at home and then we can add an appropriate background. Projects for which you can sign up now are: ‘The Shakespeare Review’ […]
