Chorlton Players Not So Much A Drama Group.... More A Way Of Life

Since hotpot won’t be happening this year, and the June and August productions cancelled, we’re looking at October at the earliest before we can do ANYTHING in St Werburgh’s, and even that is being taken on advisement.

Therefore, following our highly successful online version of “Together in Electric Dreams”, and after watching Saturday Night Live’s “At Home” episode, we thought about creating an “Online Showcase” of some kind, but not JUST full of sketches. Possibly running for an hour, or more if we have the content. It would be great to have lots of new material, but monologues, solo musical pieces, cover versions of songs, or existing monologues or sketches would be cool too. 

This would then be edited together, and then put on YouTube for public viewing, just like our Together in Electric Dreams video, with a target of sometime in late July or early August . A live screening first, then available on-demand.

The proposal is this.

  1. Members write, or pick, material (songs, sketches, monologues).
  2. Members film material (using phones or cameras).
  3. Annie edits it together into a complete show.

A  steering group has been formed to ensure a coherent direction and some quality control. This comprises Brian Candeland, Louise Derby, Gez Devney, Steven Lewyckyj, Rohan Shenoy, Bex Smith, Jess Taylor, and Annie Wallace.

Annie has some blue screen material that can be loaned if people want to use different backgrounds. She also has a couple of HD camcorders available for loan. 

In the meantime, start thinking about material to go into the show, and details will be given in due course on how to submit material.
