Important Docs!

Taking advantage of the quick break between Auditions and Casting to bring you an important milestone for no Drama.

We’ve produced two documents which we’re hoping to ratify at our AGM (likely July) we present them here for comment

Mission Statement

Constitution

The second doc is a bit elaborate, but we’d appreciate it if you could take the time to read over it.

p.s. we’ve had some debate over the term Mission Statement (while it’s absolutely accurate, it doesn’t quite feel punk enough!) feel free to suggest an alternative!

Happy New Year

No Drama workshops are back from tomorrow.

The workshop is entitled “Scene Creation 101”. For anyone new to acting or looking to join an awesomely amazingly brilliant Drama Group this is the ideal opportunity. And to all our current members, you know how much fun the first workshop of the year is so get yourself down!

Workshops take place 7 PM every Tuesday at CBS school Synge Street. First timers get in for free so no excuse to not give it a go!

Hope to see you all there!

Happy Christmas from walrus santa ( and No Drama)

We’re finished up for the festive period, after a very successful Shindig and Theatre Lovett workshop (and of course our wonderful Chalk Garden!).

On January 6th We will return with the first of our new year regular workshops, New members welcome (as usual!)

As always questions, suggestions, requests, ideas, scripts, offers of help and cryptic comments should be directed to contact@nodramatheatre.com

We know you probably can’t go for such a long period without your No Drama fix, so here’s a little collection of No Drama videos you can dip into while eat your christmas pudding..

Once we have the production team heads together we will quickly move to auditions. Watch this space.

Just a reminder

Workshops returned last week, great to have everyone back after the break. We announced a few things which we’re sharing here now.

– We’re looking for submissions for Director, Production Manager and Assistant Director for our November Production

– We’re introducing a few changes to the way workshops are run to ensure everyone gets the most out of them including split workshops and re-introducing specialised workshops.

– There’s now a submission form for your suggestions to no drama  (there’s also a permanent link at the top of the site)

That’s it for now , more to come in the next E-zine welcome to No Drama (or welcome back as the case may be)and hope to see you all next week!
