Free Zoom Event: Questors offers red carpet to summer theatre.
Ealing’s Questors Theatre is offering expert help to amateur theatres across London and the South East who want to start performing in the open air.
They are organising a free Zoom conference on Sunday 11th April at 4.00pm bringing together an impressive line up of speakers from both the professional and amateur world.
‘We know that theatres are all keen to get back to performing as soon as possible,’ said Questors artistic director Alex Marker. ‘Playing in the open air provides a great first step and one that will prove popular with our audiences.’
The conference will provide everything you need to know about how to deliver an open air theatrical performance. This could include how to run a half hour children’s show in a park, organise some live street theatre or put on a full scale production.
Speakers include Zoe Curnow, the Executive Director of the Minack Theatre Cornwall, Matt Noddings, a freelance Production Manager who spent a season at Regents Park Open Air Theatre, as well as representatives from The Progress Theatre Reading, Richmond Shakespeare Society and Putney Arts.
Between them they have an extensive experience of making theatre work for audiences outside. Most importantly we will also have a local authority representative who can advise on licensing, health and safety and local by-laws.
Book your conference place by e-mailing our Zoom host <email@example.com> Questions to the panel can also be sent to Jane in advance.
‘We all know how keen people are to enjoy live theatre again,’ said Alex Marker. ‘This is a time to be creative and work together to build the future for our local theatres and their audiences.’
