R&J rehearsals

Here are some pics from our recent rehearsals, which are coming along nicely.
Don’t forget, R&J (with a female Romeo and Juliet) is on the 26th September 2015 at the Wellington Hotel, Birmingham. Free and no need to book tickets, over 18s only.



The strangest story ever

In a recent meeting there was an exercise where everyone says one word to form a crazy story. And our members did not disappoint on this occasion.

So here it is!

Penguins participated contentedly in charity fundraising. Carrots, onions and chocolate sausages danced continuously together by moonlight sonata while whales sang loudly and macarenaeously. Tonight Matthew, I want gratification although my lips are moist with delight and s***n from many carrots throbbing viciously between tortoise’s shells. Horrible cushions accentuate disgusting places like brothels where people go rampantly exceptionally pursuing seamen who take women up to rooms where they play doctors without borders but nobody feels satisfied.

We’re working on acting in things too, announcements very soon.

Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate!

Rehearsals are going fabulously for our upcoming production, Chocolate Selection, which is taking place on the 16th, 17th and 18th April.

And here is a teaser of each chocolatey piece:

Chocolate Mountain 1 
One woman’s powerful roller coaster of emotions.
Chocolate Robot
A new product! A breakthrough for the human race: Chocolate disposable robots that you simply eat at the end of the day! But at what a price? The truth hurts far more than your waistline.
Chocolate Time Machine
The relationship of two people over a day, a day that one wishes they can do over again following a deadly event.
Chocolate Frixion
The marketing geniuses behind the Chocolate Starfish are at it again, thinking totally outside the box. Will Chocolate FriXion go viral?
Chocolate Fire
Poor Agnes, she can’t do anything right. Was the fire really her fault?
Chocolate Spat 
Like a good vintage box of chocolates, a character for all tastes.
Chocolate Death 
Techno hallucinations go physical, enough to leave the audience tripping.
Chocolate Explosion
Like a two fingered Kit Kat, meant to be together. But think what happens when the left finger’s persona flips like a vice versa!
Chocolate Roulette
A russian roulette of dates, without the high death count.
Chocolate Mountain 2
A mountain has two sides, but so do they. Will their lives ever be the same again after this trip?
Coco’s Chocolate Explosion
Beneath Coco’s glittering exterior is a dark, brooding centre. There is more to some people than meets the eye.
UPDATED: If these delectable delights take your fancy, come along to the Wellington Hotel on the 16th, 17th or 18th April. Doors open 7.45pm, curtain at 8.00pm. RSVP on the events on our Facebook page.
Until then, happy Easter!

Chocolate selection

Tonight we began putting together pieces for our easter extravaganza, taking place 5 weeks from today. First we heard ideas from our members, which included robots, hallucinations, mountains, a marketing parody and possibly a reprise of one of our previous sketches…

Then after the break we went through each idea and started to discuss ideas and possible casting.

One of our members, Mark, said: “I really loved the idea of the round Robin to discuss ideas, with everyone mingling together. It’s great to see and it hasn’t been like this since the early days”

We are scheduled to perform our easter show on the weekend of the 16th April. More details to come soon!
