End and begin

It's hard to let go of a production, especially one as engaging as Warzone proved to be.

It was a great experience for us to work with, and learn from, a cast made up entirely of students from the Isle of Wight, and the audience reaction was brilliant. Add to that the original music and sound effects provided by Ready Made Theatre and it's quite hard to believe it's all over.

But ... is it?!  We have already had interest from another venue in staging this atmospheric and emotional production, so who knows, we may all be back together again before too long.

So it's not exactly the end.  In any case, just about everyone involved is now moving on to new things.

For us, the attention turns immediately to another production of the hugely successful The Signalman, this time at Isle of Wight Steam Railway, and as a fundraiser for Freshwater Library.

In the meantime, we are at the beginning of the process of bringing yet another new play to the stage. Wake is quirky, decidedly different, and thought provoking, and will receive its premiere as part of Ryde Arts Festival on July 1 and 2.  You can find this as an event on facebook, where full details will be posted. Capacity is limited at this venue (the Depozitory), so early booking is recommended. Email us at info@originstheatre.uk if you'd like to secure a ticket or two now.

Rehearsals start on May 5.

Another new beginning!
