Our guys on stage21/3/16

We’ve had a hectic few weeks but we are so proud of the actors working with us, they have all hit the ground running with every job and produced such outstanding results it really is a pleasure to work with with them all.

Just a few of the jobs include; Police interview training; scripting and performing a piece for stage at a global conference for CBRE in London; bringing characters to life to launch a new teens novel set to rival Harry Potter for Puffin/Penguin…

A flying Start!16/3/16

We had some trouble trying to post this so it got saved as a draft. here it is in retrospect anyway! 

What a great start to the year! Despite all the sad news in the media of great performers passing, we’ve not had time to The start of this year has been so busy on both our entertainment and training fronts. Bringing the historical founder of Sherwin Williams to life for their 150th anniversary conference, dinner theatre, costumed characters from the Victorian age and of course “Dinoclaws”. Then there was the chance to work once again with the stellar training…

Total Immersion in the Story8/2/16

That’s what we’ve been tasked with. Launching a book by bringing the characters off the page and into the setting to interact with people who want to learn about this new story.

It’s a great one too! Dark fantasy fiction aimed at young readers, it is set to rival Harry Potter, or even surpass it, our actors will be immersing themselves in the roles of some of the characters and using their improvisation skills to interact with guests and give them a taste of this new world.

Starting in a Gormenghast type orphanage the story rapidly unfolds…

We are excited as…

A flying Start to 2016!28/1/16

We’ve had a flying start to the year so far. Not just the Pantomime but lots of role play training, managing high performing staff, as well as playing villains for Police interview training, we’ve had teams of actors out being interactive characters for immersive performances not to mention our schools workshops! January has been so busy we’ve turned around and here comes February! More roleplay, half-term storytelling shows and forum theatre which involve stage combat! No 2 days the same! 

New season!

Panto season may be over but we’ve had a good one, starring Jeff Longmore as our Dame with a small but perfectly formed cast of Julie O’Hare and Jack Federov, we’ve enjoyed performing our private Pantomime for audiences but now it’s time to say goodbye for another year! “Oh no it isn-” Stop that. Yes it is.

Gotcha!18/1/16

cwaitersIt’s the ultimate wind up, the perfect prank: comedy waiters! We’ve been enjoying the party season and more, hiding our characters amongst regular staff and watching as people become increasingly outraged by their antics! People realise eventually but we stay in character to the end and from then it simply becomes a case of sitting back and enjoying our actors improvise expertly scenes that would never occur in a high class establishment! Some people can’t help themselves joining in as well – as this picture proves,…

Doing the Bard, innit.23/11/15

Mark Rylance has just given his esteemed opinion of Shakespeare: we agree with him. Someone asked recently, “what is the best Shakespeare play to read first”? The only reply is: “none”. Shakespeare wrote plays, they were meant to be performed, watched and enjoyed as entertainment, not revered as literary works and kept in stasis forever – that’s archaeology. Not to demean their literary value of course but they need to be played by actors, played with by good actors and seen by anyone who loves a great story. Because that is the root of good entertainment – a good story. 

Shakespeares plays endure…

Ring ring!10/11/15

We’re currently having some disconnection problems with our phone line but that’s ok, while it’s being sorted by the engineers we have all of social media and the internet for connectivity!

If you need to get in touch then ping us an email and we’ll give you a call back -because sometimes it’s better to speak to someone when you have a complicated enquiry about staffing the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, or enacting scenes from Great expectations, or just filming a training video!

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, thanks!

Braaaiiiiins!23/10/15

It’s that time of the year again, where everyone goes nuts trying to scare the living poop out of their friends and colleagues! There are some amazing home made costumes, some outright fun pranks and the one thing you see most of: ZOMBIES!

As you might expect, we’re pretty busy helping people make the most of their Halloween weekend but here’s a picture of one of our zombies out looking for fresh brains for lunch!
