Cast at The First Rehearsal for OLYMPUS www.avriljonesphotography.co.uk
Sunday saw a cast of 50 plus battle their way through OLYMPUS - following the twists and turns of the story and hearing the full score for the first time. There are pros and cons in doing a read through - but hard as they are, I think they unite minds in a common cause. Avril Jones was there taking photographs, some of which will be posted up here soon.
Penny Parks set the first Greek dance routine for the children involved in the show and we were joined by a number of enthusiastic Croydon College Students, who made up the cast.
Set designer Wiggy Wilson revealed her design for the show (pictured above) adapted to both The Ashcroft Theatre and The Minack Theatre, Cornwall.
We have increased our quota of men in the show, but we still need a couple more - do you know someone local to Croydon who would like to be involved?
Please Email if you do.
GOOD COMPANY is trying to raise some funds for OLYMPUS THE MUSICAL and have set up a page on SPONSUME where you can donate if you like. The Penny Parks Charitable Trust have kindly donated some funds to sponsor our Croydon College Performing Arts Students to go to The Minack Theatre - but more is needed. if you feel you can help sponsor the production please click this link - sponsors receive benefits for their help. Below is the Video Promo for OLYMPUS.
We are very pleased to announce that the part of Olympic Athlete DIMITRY RAPHAEL will be played by NEIL O'GORMAN and the part of NESTOR will be taken by JAMES CALDWELL.
We are still looking for some SPARTANS to help make up the ensemble. This is going to be a fantastic community project for Croydon - we have workshop performances at The Questors in Ealing as part of The RSC OPen Stages Initiative and we are playing two great venues - THE ASHCROFT & THE MINACK! Come along for the ride!
MEN WE NEED YOU!
No need to have great voices or be brilliant dancers - we are looking for "built" men who fancy treading the boards.
