new radioplay this sunday!- “wine from greenland” by Alejandro Niklison

We are SO excited to announce that our No Drama Podcast Curtain Call, will be broadcasting the next radioplay “Wine from Greenland” written and directed by the super talented Alejandro Niklison!!
Streaming Live on ALL major platforms from Sunday, 29th of November!!!

Coming soon at Curtain Call – a podcast by No Drama Theatre.

As Anton and Ian wait to be seated at a restaurant, a seemingly ordinary conversation leads them to a mutual realization about life and society: man is a caged animal, chained to social conventions, roles and relationships. But beyond married life, affairs, jobs and obligations lies a land where one can start over and rediscover themselves.
Will they find freedom or will they fail in their quest?
……………………………………………………………………………………………………..
“Wine from Greenland”, an audioplay that explores the meaning of society and identity in the search for absolute freedom.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Performed by Andrei Callanan, Lisa Gallagher and Rahul Dewan Dewan
Written & directed by Alejandro Niklison

We will be covering everything, from the initial inception of an idea to opening night, and beyond!

Malcolm is an Application Support specialist with Zarion software who has been a regular member of No Drama for 7 years. He has performed in a wide variety of roles over the years, both onstage and off. This includes, but is not limited to:

AUDITIONS

What some good news on a rainy day??

The next No Drama production will be “Seminar”, a dark comedy by Theresa Rebeck that was first performed in 2011.

The play is set in present Day New York and follows four aspiring writers – Kate, Martin, Douglas and Izzy – who have paid $5,000 each for a ten-week writing seminar with international literary figure Leonard. Leonard’s unorthodox teaching style soon pits the classmates against each other: some of them flourish under his version of tough love, while others flounder with self-doubt. As tensions arise and romance falls, they clash over their writing, their relations, and their futures.

Characters:

– Kate – 30s to 40s, American accent (Upper West Side, New York) preferred.

– Martin – 30s – 40s, American accent (generic/ New York) preferred.

– Leonard – mid 40s – mid 60s

– Douglas – late 20s – mid 40s

– Izzy – 20s, possibly ethnical

We purposefully don’t give much information about the characters, as this is a play about “normal” people, and we really want to see and give each actor the chance to interpret their role on their own. The age is more a guideline as to the age gap between Leonard and the class (and Izzy and the rest of the class) is kind of important. But don’t be thrown off, if you feel you are right for the part, please do audition for it. There is makeup and costume after all.

Audition Process

As we’re still in the midst of a lock-down, auditions will be via self-tape and call-backs possibly through zoom.

Everyone who is interested in auditioning please send an email with your preferred character to contact@nodramatheatre.com, and we will be sending you the full script and further audition notes.

Reading the full script is not mandatory at all, but certainly helps to form the character.

You can audition for as many characters as you wish but have to send a separate tape for each of them, each tape should not exceed 8 minutes.

Couple Auditions

Though through Covid regulations we will have to keep the social distance on stage, there are some intimate scenes in the play that can possibly go to a real-life couple or people who live in the same household and are comfortable portraying a couple on stage. (Kissing is scripted but definitely not mandatory for the parts!) Possible Couple Auditions are Martin/Izzy

Kate/Martin

Kate/Leonard

But of course, everyone can audition for these parts, couple or not.

Deadline for Auditions is Friday, the 27th of November.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch at either contact@nodramatheatre.com or corinna.reichle@web.de

We are super excited for this production and looking forward to receiving your lovely tapes

2021 YOUR LOOKING WELL HUN XOXOX

Workshop -10 November 2020

Howyia Hansomes!

With the upcoming auditions for our next production: Seminars, we thought it was only appropriate to evolve this week’s workshops on auditioning!With the way the world is at the moment, and everything being very much virtual, it is now more important than ever to get your self-tape auditioning skills on point!

No better woman for the job than No Drama’s very own, long time working actor, the wonderful Sorcha Herlihy!

Sorcha has been working in the acting industry since 2002, with her very first-ever acting role in feature film “Evelyn” alongside Mr James Bond himself, Pierce Brosnan, since then she has been in many feature and short films, TV shows and commercial campaigns, and playing many roles in theatre, one of which was her favourite, leading lady Miss Hallie Jackson in No Drama theatres “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” (2018) this was Sorcha’s introduction into No Drama Theatre, and she is now part of the committee as our very own PR/Marketing Gal! (Hence a lot of lady gaga references lately😅)

“This weeks workshop will be considerating on the art of self-taping, and how important it is (now more than ever) to execute it to the best of your ability, giving you the greatest chance of getting that callback, or in the room with the director! We will also look into the things that hold us back most when auditioning and how we can use different skills to overcome the fear and struggles that come with putting yourself out there! We will do activities on getting to know a character quickly when necessary and getting the job done, as sometimes you are only giving a few hours to prep for last-minute auditions, especially in this industry!”

We also may have a special guest at the end of this workshop👀 so make sure and get yourselves on that zoom call 7pm tomorrow evening!

the next director

Good evening beautiful people, just in case you missed our winter production announcement at our Shindig after-party- here it is…in writing!

A woman of such talent, wit, humour, intelligence and comedic timing like no other needs no introduction, but here it is anyway because dammmn we are beyond excited for this! This year’s winter production, will be directed by the one and only – Corinna Reichle! Hi – it’s me. she’s natural.she’s approachable.she is just like one of you.

Corinna has been a member of No Drama Theatre for the past 4 years. She started out as a loyal workshop-attendee (and the pub-after-goer… remember the pub after a workshop?); then soon began helping out backstage at No Drama Shows.

She has written, directed and performed in several of the Shindigs and the (BYO) Monologue Nights and had the pleasure of facilitating a couple of the No Drama Workshops. In 2018 she developed her 10-minute Shindig piece „Insomnia“ further and took it to Smock Alley Theatre’s Scene + Heard Festival.

Outside of No Drama Theatre, Corinna has worked as (Assistant) Stage Manager and Assistant Director for several productions around Dublin and just came back from Assistant Directing two plays in Berlin. Before they locked down.

She finished the Advanced Performance Course in the Gaiety School of Acting and an Introduction to the Meisner Technique and is currently in her third and final year of studying Theatre Performance in Inchicore College for Further Education.

After having been Assistant Director for No Drama’s last main production „Gaslight“ in winter 2019 she is now super happy to have been selected Director for this one. In such strange and unprecedented times, too.

It’s going to be a bit different, but she is up for all the challenges the Corona-Pandemic will be throwing at this production and is looking forward to get her amazing crew and euphoric cast assembled.

There you have it folks, get excited, get involved, get READY.

Because we definitely are 😉

The show will in fact, go ON!🎭
