About to Start… Are You Going To Be Part of It?

The first rehearsals for the Passion Play I mentioned in my last blog post are getting closer and this post is partly to give full details of rehearsals and performances and partly an extra call-out to anyone who would like to take part.

Peformances will be in three venues over two different dates – April 11th, 7.30pm in Warton, St Oswald’s Church; April 13th, 2.00pm in Church of the Ascension, Torrisholme and 7.30pm in Lancaster Priory – andĀ  with a final, fourth, performance on Good Friday (April 19th) in Lancaster city centre also being planned for 12.30pm.

Performers can take part in any or all of the performances and just need to attend a minimum of four rehearsals between February and April (there will be a range of dates in each venue) and a Dress Rehearsal for each venue in which they will perform. I am keen to work around everyone’s availability – so get in touch with any problems at all.

First rehearsals are:

Sunday 10th February at 2pm -Warton St Oswald’s; Tuesday 12th February at 7pm – Lancaster Priory; Wednesday 13th February at 7pm – Torrisholme, Church of the Ascension. Try to come to one of those if you would like to be in the cast.

I hope to see lots of people there – everyone welcome – of all levels of experience. (No prior experience necessary, just a willingness to have a go!) Young people very welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult at all rehearsals and performances. It’s going to be exciting! Don’t miss out – come and see what it’s all about – and get in touch if you want any further information.

Finally for now, here is our Passion Play logo (thanks, Ben!) – look out for it on posters and on social media.

More very soon.

North Lancashire Passion Play

ELART’s next big project is a Passion Play for Lent/Easter 2019. I am currently in the devising/drafting/writing/planning phase and it is feeling very exciting so far. It will (I hope) hope be a large-scale community production – open to all as performers – and free for audiences to watch in one of three north Lancashire churches and/or in Lancaster city centre. A full schedule of performances will appear on my website very soon.

Much more will follow here soon as I blog the process – and see how it fits alongside all the other varied work I am currently undertaking. 2019 is getting fully underway!
