Lighting Equipment

Posted, with permission, from an Email message to BADAC from Tom Dawn.

Phoenix Theatre Group have two, little used, lighting dimmer racks and a control desk which are surplus to requirements.

They are too good to throw away and would be ideal for installation in a village hall with a stage.

The Dimmer racks are Furse Delta, 6 Channel at 10amp (Total 60 amp at full load) The two together make 12 channels.

 The Control Desk is Furse Delta 12

 Have any Members of BADAC a need for this equipment?

The Rise and Fall of Little Voice

Little Theatre Company Presents The Rise and Fall of Little Voice by Jim Cartwright.

Mari’s daughter is different. Never leaves the house, doesn’t like the men her mother brings home and would rather stay in her room with only her record collection for company.

 But she can sing! It’s the kind of voice that gives you goose bumps. And when you can sing, you can do anything… An award-winning play, The Rise and Fall of Little Voice is a heart-warming and down-to-earth comedy which was subsequently made into a much celebrated film which made a star of Jane Horrocks and featured Michael Caine and Brenda Blethyn.

 The Little Theatre Company is delighted to feature the talents of Sophie Towns as Little Voice

 7.30pm each evening plus Saturday matinee at 2.30pm £8.00 adults /£7.00 concessions

UCS-‘Music from Two Shores’

Uttoxeter Choral Society presents

‘Music from Two Shores’

 June 9th 2012

 Music from Ralph Vaughan Williams and Aaron Copland will form the part of a varied and interesting programme for Uttoxeter Choral Society’s forthcoming Summer Concert. Taking place at 7.30pm on Saturday June 9th 2012 at St Mary’s Church, Uttoxeter, the concert will include pieces from Vaughan Williams’ Five English Folk Songs and Copland’s Old American Songs, along with Eric Whitacre’s Seal Lullaby and the moving Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen. Tickets cost £10 and are available from The Musicians Centre, Uttoxeter, on the door, or via www.uttoxeterchoralsociety.co.uk

 
Musical Director, Anthony Rose said, ‘The choir really have to dig deep for this concert. Not only are some of the pieces challenging musically, Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen for example, but they are demanding emotionally too. The Lux Aeterna is a rollercoaster of emotions, deep sadness, euphoric highs and everything in between, all packed into thirty minutes. In the second half we perform, amongst other things, Copland’s response to a country trying to find their own unique musical style and heritage, with his two sets of Old American Songs. Copland goes where few composers ventured before, by tapping into the American heartland. This concert is set to be an enjoyable transatlantic musical journey.’

 
UCS Chairman, Fiona Shaw added, ‘We have really enjoyed rehearsing for this concert, which brings together some very different styles of music. I think the audience is in for a real treat! We are also very grateful to our concert sponsors, The Glenthorne Vetinary Group, for their generous support’.

 

The 2012/2013 season will see this long-running choir (the third oldest in the country) celebrate its 130th anniversary with a gala concert in November 2012.
