No sooner have we brought lights down on the Spring Season (massive congratulations to our productions’ cast and crew for their amazing 3 shows), it’s time to kick off our Summer Season, launching on Monday!
No rest, more theatre to create! Join us Monday 15th April at the Hoop & Grapes pub and meet the rest of our merry band, hear from directors and generally have a merry old time.
Want to dip your toe in a nice manageable acting project this Spring?
We’re looking for actors to be in our Full Stack new writing showcase which this year it’s title and theme is: Carried Away.
After over a hundred submissions our team of directors are whittling it down to around fifteen 4-6 minute plays.
By auditioning for Carried Away you get the opportunity to potentially play very different characters, giving yourself an acting challenge and to display your versatility.
It’s also a great way to meet new people or catch up with KDC friends, as our showcase rehearsals are always very sociable and with a large number of people involved, there’s always someone up for a drink!
To find out more about how we audition and what the scripts might be, com along on Monday 15th April, 7pm at the Hoop and Grapes, Farringdon Road.
And to close out our spring season, we bring you a psychological horror of a family dealing with their own tragedy. Physical theatre, shadow puppets, and an intimate soundscape delivered through personal headphones, come experience the world of Hush Now.
Our season opens with our very own rip-roaring Russian comedy, Maybe Radio, next week at the Barons Court Theatre! This one’s already selling fast so get on the phone quick quick so you don’t miss out!
Once again it’s time to get your pens out (well, laptops I suppose) and get creative for our summer show “Carried Away”. We’re looking for very short scripts to produce for a week performance in July, so if you’ve always wanted to get into writing, or want a new challenge, this is for you!
Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday at 6:40pm at Deptford Lounge. Come any evening you like, and you can audition for all three shows on a single evening. You don’t need to prepare anything, and all the details are in the notices above.
Curtains up for the new productions — come find out about them, direct from the directors (so to speak)! Our season launch party is this week, Thursday 10 January. From 7pm, upstairs at the Hoop & Grapes pub. See you there!
