We've got some slap stick sketches with Adam and Roger and sing along songs (if you know them!) and some thoughtful and reflective monologues.
With Tom as our fantastic director this show is one not to miss!

Beauty and The Beast - Pantomime - 3rd and Last Night

We had a great matinee show with nearly a full house again. Another great audience too.

Our last performance had a fabulous audience with lots of booing the witch and cheering the heroine.
Sad its all over so quickly. A job well done to all who performed in the shows. Thanks to John for directing it and putting his imagination into it, Eileen for all her coaching, Denny and her team for all the costume making and sourcing, and finally to all who built and made props.

How to do stage makeup

Tonight at StageOne we worked on core skills and learnt how to apply basic stage makeup. This was also in preparation for StageOne's panto beauty and the beast. This workshop was led by one our cast member Hannah.

To start with we learnt how to apply foundation taking special care to cover down the neck and ears so this doesn't show under the stage lights. We then covered our face with powder to make sure there was no shine. After we worked on applying the finishing touches such as eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner and lipgloss. This evening was a fantastic workshop and gave everyone peace of mind that stage makeup isn't difficult.

Back to Basics Workshops and Easter Preparations

For the last two Tuesdays we had perceptive sessions on stage movements and walking and developing characters from a script. Fascinating and very relevant to our panto! Find out more about our panto!

We have been preparing and reading various Holy Week and Easter scripts for our proposed Easter Road show and this will continue this subsequently.

We are aiming to get our own presentation together and put it on in various church locations. We want to be confident it will happen and we want to get some fixtures in as soon as we can.

We've got a lot of potential scripts covering a wide spectrum of the Easter story both in biblical and contemporary modes. We need you too so we can show what a talented and thoughtful group Stage 1 is! Do please be in touch with suggestions and to affirm your availability!
