Chiswick’s Tabard Theatre are teaming up with Richmond Theatre’s Creative Learning Department to give local 18 to 30 year olds the chance to direct or star in a production on stage. Both are inviting them to watch the Richmond Young Actors Company’s show A Vampire Story at The Tabard on Sunday 1 May with a chance to meet the creative team after the show.
Two young women arrive in a nameless British small-town. Their names are not their own. They don’t declare their ages. Their relationship with each other is not clear. Are they sisters, as their assumed identities declare? Are they vampires? Or are they troubled young women on the run?
Richmond Theatre Young Actors Company present this thought provoking production that they say will appeal both to young adults and all those interested in strong contemporary British drama at its best.
For just £6 anyone aged 18 – 30 can book an U30 pass to see the Young Actors Company show along with free entry to the after show party where they can talk to the director, producer and cast. They will then be invited to suggest a show they would either like to direct or star in. The individuals with the best two suggestions, as decided by the company, will be invited to either co-direct or star in a showcase at Richmond Theatre in July or a play at a Central London venue later this year.
Nikki Ward, producer of A Vampire Story and Creative Learning Manager at Richmond Theatre said,“This is an amazing opportunity for local young actors and directors. For the price of a £6 ticket they could potentially have a fast track springboard to starting their career in theatre. If I was them, I would jump at the chance!”
To take advantage of this opportunity and gain a U30 pass, all 18-30’s need to do is book a £6 concession ticket. General admission tickets for “A Vampire Story” are just £8.
A Vampire Story is being before at the Tabard Theatre on Sunday 1 May at 3pm and 7pm.
