Back in the early 1980s my senior high school class went to see "Death of a Salesman", starring the legendary British-Australian actor Warren Mitchell, in Sydney. I wasn't able to go as my family was too poor to pay for the school excursion. It is probably the school experience that I most regret missing out on. The next day all of the other students who went (even those who were not really into literature/theatre) were raving about how good it was & Mitchell's brilliant performance as Willy Loman.

I'm sure Anthony LaPaglia will do an excellent job portraying the tragic salesman on the Australian stage. #theatre #theater #AnthonyLaPaglia #Australia #Sydney #DeathOfASalesman #ArthurMiller #WillyLoman #play #stage

#CaseyAndDiana, the new play about Princess Di's visit to the Canadian #AIDS #hospice was stunning. Ushers hand out tissues before the show starts. It will Win All The Things: it was gripping, & funny, & tragic, & structurally recursive, & clever, & humbling, & true. Author Nick Green created a theatrical tour-de-force. Plus, the acting was amazing & music compelling. But the telling of the story was an example of WHY #theatre exists.

To reach a broad audience, it is indeed important that scientists and artists work together. People need to connect emotionally.
In Germany, @S4F did a project called #Zukunftsbilder (images of the future) asking the question "How do we want to live 2040?".
Somebody involved there, also connects #theatre projects with #ClimateCrisis (Shakespeare actually).
And maybe were are up to something new.
Big scale would help, though.

Caring for someone with dementia makes you look at a lot of things in new ways. The latest re-examination in my house is Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.

The “plot” is of two men waiting for someone named Godot who never arrives. He’s supposed to come tomorrow, but doesn’t show and then he’ll come the next day instead.

What if Godot is showing up every day as he said he would, but the two main characters are just unable to remember it because they’re both suffering from memory loss?

Everything gets flipped 180. Godot becomes the dependable presence and the two waiting for him are the unreliable ones.

An incredible group of kids recently put on a production of Marian (a Robin Hood story with LGBTQ+ themes) in Fort Wayne, Indiana, despite huge obstacles. The play had originally been due to go on at school, but homophobic bullying by elements of the local community got it cancelled. But that didn't stop the kids who managed to raise $80k+, find support and put it on in a local theatre.

I was once performing a one man show. Two drunk girls had been disrupting throughout the first half.

They came back into the auditorium after the interval clutching cans of lager.

Five minutes into the second half came the loud pop and hiss of cans being opened.

I addressed them directly from the stage with
"Do you want to just fuck off?"

They didn't make a sound for the rest of the show.

I loved learning the “Transatlantic Accent”at the conservatory.

Peace! You can call me Bry, they/them. I was born in 2002, and am 21 at time of writing.

I call myself a storyteller because I do many forms of storytelling and it's a nice summary of all of them. Currently, I'm focusing on #writing, mostly #journalism. I am also interested in #theatre, the #marchingarts, #music, and other forms of telling stories.

I am #disabled in several ways. I wear ear defenders regularly, and probably need to start using some sort of mobility aid. If you wanna talk about shared experiences, it would be my pleasure!

I am #muslim, and love studying and learning about all religions. I am considering becoming a chaplain of some kind. I feel I may be able to help other queer and progressive folk who feel alienated by their religious communities.

I am also plural—the world inside our head is massive, confusing, and terrifying. We mostly present as a single individual, though. It's just what works for us/me.

I am some sort of communist, though I haven't been able to read much theory. I think living your beliefs is more important than academeizing them anyway.

I have a deep hatred of car dependent infrastructure and car culture. I try to live my life without using a car as much as possible. I guess that falls under #urbanism, though I can't think of a super clever way to incorporate that tag.

My DMs are open, if you ever want to talk! You can ask for my discord or instagram as well. I hope you find something worthwhile here!

This Facebook post makes me happy so I had to share it here. Running a small, accessible black box theatre that showcases original local works is hard in a conservative city where the established, monopolistic players tend to get all the money, but my friends are still fighting hard to make it happen. #theatre #Ōtautahi #Christchurch #NZ

Post from Little Andromeda:
Kia ora all.
We're so happy to have received financial support from the Ministry of Culture & Heritage today.
Thanks for your hundreds of letters of support. 
This support has come at the 11th hour. We're literally closing down this Sunday. However, with this 11th hour major injection, we're able to pivot our closing down party into a "see you soon!" party.
We will stay the course with shutting the doors for a while, but rather than emptying the building out, we'll spend a couple of months giving the theatre a lick of paint, update some of our systems, have a winter holiday, book some shows in, and get ready to welcome you back soon. We're on track for mid to late August.
We've already got some ideas for how we can do some things better, and we're excited to make these changes.
We're far from out of the woods. This funding is designed to buy a few one-off things that make our life easier in the long run. It will also cover half the funding we need to keep the theatre open for the year. We'll still have to operate with tightened belts, but it gives us a year to work on building our systems for securing ongoing charitable funding, continuing the hunt for corporate sponsors and especially trying to talk Creative New Zealand into giving us more reliable funding.
In the meantime, I'm beyond thrilled to say that we're not closing, we'll be back and better than before, really soon!
Thanks again so, so much for your support.
See you at the theatre,

Interested in child and adolescent mental health, and the transition to adulthood (and adult services)?

Come to a free, immersive performance of Hidden, produced by the amazing Made by Mortals.

Happening on Friday the 7th of July in Manchester, 1.30-3pm.


Flyer for creative workshop. In the top left, there is a logo in white which reads: 'hidden'. The logo has two white earbuds which connect to the word.

The main image is of what appears to be a bedroom, viewed through a keyhole. A bed and a window are visible.

The text reads:
Stop. Read. Hidden. adjective. Kept out of sight, concealed. 

Breathe. Think. 

Hidden LIVE is an immersive performance that challenges audiences to walk in the shoes of a young person struggling with mental health. 

“In a few moments you will enter an avatar and become Adam. Adam’s life will become your responsibility. You will have the ‘ controls. You have the headset. Help him survive, strive even.”

Adam has just turned 18. Mum is now even more in the dark. Siobhan, Adam's key worker, feels like a failure. His sister just wants out.

This multimedia theatre piece uses the imaginations and experiences of real people and asks you to question what you can do to help.

“It’s not catching you know, what my brother’s got. People treat you that way, but it ain’t.” 

Friday 7th July 2023 1:30pm-3pm Grosvenor East, Cavendish St, Manchester M15 6BG

Hi, I'm a professional violinist who plays soundtracks :sylveon_squish:

Ok, #Introduction over. I'm a musician, not a wordsmith :growlithe_derp:
... ... ...
I'm being gently informed by my responsible half that I'm to write a *proper* intro, as she puts it...
... ... ...

Hi Fedi/Mastodon, I'm Octavia, a 30ish Japanese and USian violinist (and composer) whose mother introduced her to the violin at age 5 and Super Mario Brothers at age 3. This would go on to have profound consequences, chief amongst which was that the majority of the activities I enjoy involve fingertip dexterity. The secondary effect was that I would go on to use the classical training I received throughout my childhood to, for the most part, play soundtracks while letting my classical repertoire languish :blobhaj_peek:

Nintendo classics like Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Pokemon, and Smash, JRPG classics like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy (IX and X specifically), movie soundtracks including a bunch of Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki Hayao works, Disney, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Carribbean, and Master & Commander (which is just my excuse to play the Bach Cello Suite no. 1: Prelude :leafeon_giggle: ), and a few anime pieces here and there (along with at least one My Little Pony theme :blobhaj_jam: ) are the bulk of what I play when I perform solo. I do play classical pieces here and there, but they mostly tend to be various movements from the Bach Cello Suites, along with a smattering of Celtic music, though I try to mix everything together in my sets, leaving people guessing as to what's a soundtrack and what's not :blobhaj_peek:

I perform at various conventions in the Pacific Northwest of the US (formerly in Brook and Link cosplays), whether inside or outside, and also perform as part of Troupe Seven Stars at faires in the area over the summer months while filling the rest of my time playing solo or ensemble shows, mostly near Portland. About half of Saturdays are spent performing at Fleur de Lis Bakery & Cafe in the Hollywood district.

I tend to spend my free time dissociating in the shower, overcoming whatever ADHD lobs my way, and running out the door like an alternate-universe fusion of Bilbo Baggins and the March Hare from Alice in Wonderland (though, to my astonishment, I've only been late to 2 gigs in my life that I remember). What crumbs of time are spared from those tend to be spent on gaming, reading manga/watching anime, listening to and sharing music (yes, mostly soundtracks), and enjoying what the internet has to offer.

Aside from needing to hop instances, I've found my time on the Fedi to be enjoyable, and I hope to keep meeting interesting, genuine people and sharing time and conversations together :espeon_love: </wall-o'-text>

I'm reboosting this because further details have revealed that the dingbat who ruined the kids' field trip to see James and the Giant Peach heard that the show employed "double-casting". Double casting is when more than one actor is hired to perform a single role and they trade off; sometimes it's used to describe one actor playing multiple roles.

The dingbat from Spring Branch thought "double casting" meant "cross dressing".

As I settle in here, it seems like a good idea to introduce myself. I’ve been working for a long time at a Very Big Tech Company & am currently focused on user #privacy. Big fan of #travel (especially the Big Island of #Hawaii), but I’ve wandered all over the place. I love #scuba, #photography, #books, #theatre, #art, & #music. #Chemo survivor since August, 2022. #Sober since 1984. Also, #Queer & #liberal (duh).

Weirdos are my people.

I've been working at this theater on and off for 30 years. In that time I've played multiple genders; I've also played kangaroos, weasels, and chairs. There's never been an agenda, other than if a part needs playing and you're not on stage, you do it. But some Spring Branch Becky flipped the fuck out and went on a gender war.

Most parents didn't even realize why the field trip was canceled.

Much belated #Introduction

I’m Tim, one of the two presenters on The Randomiser #Podcast. We burble on about #DoctorWho new and old, and other favourite shows such as #RedDwarf #Blakes7 and my cohost Chas also likes #TheTomorrowPeople

Professionally I #VideoDesign for #Theatre and once or twice for #Theater

My own interests here are mostly fun things like #Puns #Scifi #Etymology and #BadJokes but I’m also interested in connecting with other fans of Doctor Who and generally being #Silly

I just moved here from another lovely instance because I found I wasn't posting at all about its subject matter but was only posting about #Autism. So here's one of those #Introduction posts with lots of #CamelCase hashtags -

Phantom of the Opera was the first musical I ever listened to, it was the first I ever saw in person, and will always be one of my favourites.

What a run.

Front cover of the resource pack. At the top is the University of Westminster logo. The title is Radical Theatre: Inspiring future generations. A subhead head says Educational Resource Pack. The illustration covers the full page behind the text. A blue band at the top represents the early days of Soho Poly with illustrations of the building and Verity Bargate. The middle section is in greenish tones and shows performances from the 1970s. A red band at the bottom of the page shows four young people in a recent production.

Taking the family to the Bristol Hippodrome to see the Mother Goose panto, starring Ian McKellen as the Dame.

Or, as it's known in the US, a crime against the poor defenseless children who will surely come out of the experience traumatised.

A local #theatre company is going to perform a one-act #play I wrote! I’ve been invited to attend auditions next weekend, another new experience.
The performance will be on the evening of June 5 in Nyack, NY. It’s free and everyone is invited.
The play is called “Come Right Away. Don’t Rush.” It’s based on events that could have happened (but didn’t) on the night my mother suffered the injury that would end her life a few months later. Not nearly as depressing as it sounds! I promise! #writing
