Playgoers to take part in RSC’s pro/am project

Newport Playgoers Society are planning to take part in the UK’s biggest pro/am theatre project and produce our own RSC Shakespeare themed production.

RSC Open Stages is a new project that aims to embrace, develop and celebrate amateur theatre, re-forging the bond with the world of professional theatre. 

Over 2011/2012 the RSC, in partnership with a number of regional theatres and amateur theatre associations, will run a national programme of skills sharing events and showcases, with amateur societies from across the UK invited to produce their own RSC branded Shakespeare themed production.

A number of productions from across the UK will be invited to perform at the World Shakespeare Festival in Stratford in 2012,  alongside professional Shakespeare productions at the RSC.  NPS  have decided that our production will be performed at the Dolman Theatre in March 2012 and will involve both NPS and PLaygoers New Generation (PNG) members.

To find out more, come along to the RSC Open Stages meeting at the Dolman Theatre at 6pm on Tuesday 22nd February. For more information, email Judith Lindwall on
