We have had some new equipment installed in our lighting box and Phill will be running workshops for anyone who is interested in learning. Phill is also looking for an apprentice to learn all about the lighting and sound so anyone interested in this, contact Phill.
All budding techies, directors and anyone else interested in learning the ropes please contact Phill and he will arrange your training.
Criterion Christmas Show
Jo Godman will be appearing in a variety show at The Criterion Music Hall, Bluetown, Sheerness on Wednesday 6th and Thursday 7th December. The cast includes Adam Daye, comedy impressionist, Peter John providing some musical comedy, Paul Harris & Marilyn Hill Smith who has made a record 106 appearances in Friday Night is Music Night.
If you would like to book tickets for the show on Wed 6th Dec at 7.30pm, please contact Dean Caston. Tickets are £22.50 (providing we have 10 or more) and includes a fish and chip supper.
We have had an offer from Steve Harbour to be the new Building Manager coordinator. Steve has been a member for many years and used to be heavily involved in Set Building and stage managing. Steve has recently retired and is keen to become more involved in the theatre again and will be organising the various repair jobs that we need around the theatre.
If you are a suitably qualified builder, plumber, electrician, plasterer, painter, decorator or odd job person who would like to be considered to be hired to carry out work around the theatre, please contact Steve on 07760 119309. He can then begin to build up a contact list of workers we can call on for future work.
We would like some assistance in getting the newsletters out to members. Although many members have moved across to having their newsletters delivered electronically, there are still approximately 150 that need to be delivered either by hand or post. This requires emvelopes to be addressed and filled. If you can spare any time to help with this task (or with the delivery) then please contact Helen or Dean Caston.
If you would like to receive your newsletter electronically then please use the same link and tell us your name and preferred email address.
Promotion and Advertising
The monitor in the foyer is now available to promote future productions and events at the theatre. It is also available for advertising purposes if you know of any suitable companies or organizations.
Please contact Dean Caston for fees and details.
Kathy West has been working with a clothing company to produce some garments that have the RaTS logo embroidered on them. A selection of polo shirts (£10), hoodies (£15) and fleeces (£20) are available to order and samples will be on display during the panto. Order forms are available in the foyer. A great way to promote our theatre and an ideal gift! We look forward to seeing lots of them being worn around the theatre.
