Are you a budding writer, a witty wordsmith or a droll dramatist? This could be a chance to put your work on stage - GLOC is looking for talented writers to draft, develop and deliver a mini musical masterpiece for our next winter production.
The GLOC winter show is a chance for the company to let their hair down and display their wide range of talents. In recent years this small, relaxed show has taken various forms including cabaret, pantomime, choral concert, comic musical and scratch performance of Gilbert and Sullivan.
Delivered on a shoestring budget, our main aim is to have fun and entertain our audience.
The successful writer or team will be expected to plan the production which will be performed in our local town hall, and responsible for directing – or finding a director for - the show.
Anyone who is interested in this opportunity to showcase their work with a young, lively company should email email@example.com with a short outline of their ideas including:
• plot outline
• the look and feel of the piece, such as set, lighting and costumes
• an outline list of songs, and how the music will be sourced
• How you will work with a limited budget and manage the time constraints of our volunteer production team
They should also attach a draft of at least one full scene for the proposed show. A full script should be completed before production begins in September
The deadline for submissions is 20 May, and the show itself is provisionally booked for either 29/30 Nov or 13/14 Dec.
Some things to consider:
The winter show can be an opportunity for members who don’t audition for roles in our summer operas to shine - if you are writing an original piece, consider what small to medium roles could be included.
One of GLOC’s aims is to spread knowledge of Gilbert and Sullivan so while not essential, inclusion of their work if appropriate would be appreciated.
