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!
