    Hi All

    Most of you have now confirmed a tech time for next week (wc 25th April), anyone who has not got any or has not had any tech time can they contact me via email to do this ASAP…also the Tuesday of next week is still largely quiet if anyone should require it…

      Can you make 14:00 – 16:00 on Monday the 4th? I can’t let you book the stage all day on the wednesday of easter but you can have it for 2.5 hours as before…say 13:30 – 16:00…If nobody else books the space or wants to rehearse on this day then you can have it for a longer period of time of course… can I ask who this is?
      Many Thanks.

      Hi Faye and Emily

      You are fine to have Thursday the 28th April…what time on that day would you like? Unfortunately the 8th Is already booked out all day…I still have plenty of free time on the 4th and 5th Of April? let me know ASAP if a couple of hours on any of these days will be helpful?

    I think our group (the train one) would definitely like to use the second week of Easter for rehearsals! Probably Thursday 28th April would be best. Thanks Darren!

    Hi All

    As I make my way around to your groups to discuss tech for this module it is becoming apparent that there are some developing technical aspects of your performances that need exploring, trying out and indeed rehearsing…

    Obviously the Easter break combined with the Carroll Churchill festival and other various assessments going on creates us an issue with space and time being somewhat limited, this is especially a problem for use of the LPAC itself… however I believe that we can work with the following for tech on the main stage…

    Theatre Company – Available Technical Rehearsal Times (LPAC)

    WC Monday 4th April

    Monday 4th April – (All day) 11:00 – 19:00?
    (09:00 – 11:00 for pit manoeuvre).

    Tuesday 5th April (All day) 09:00 – 17:00?
    (Pit manoeuvre required afterwards for Boothby Graffoe).

    Friday 8th April 11:30 – 19:00
    (Pit manoeuvre required afterwards)

    As you can see that is very little time for us to use the stage effectively before Easter… However I will be available the second week of Easter and can also open up the Theatre on the following days….

    Second week of Easter.

    Tuesday 26th April (All day)

    Wednesday 27th April (All day)

    Thursday 28th April (09:00 – 16:00)
    (Leaving time to pre rig for professional show the next day…)

    These times are available for students should we need to try out some new ideas/ set up a technical rehearsal in LPAC.

    The following applies for the use of studio 2.

    Use of Studio 2 is more flexible and can be booked accordingly outside of class times on the week commencing the 4th of April, if you would like to book some tech time in studio 2 for Theatre Company please liaise with myself ( and we can sort this out…alternatively studio 2 is empty the second week of Easter, again I am more than happy to conduct technical rehearsals on the following days…

    Tuesday 26th April (All day)

    Wednesday 27th April (All day)

    Thursday 28th April (All day)

    Would anyone want to use the second week of Easter for some tech and / or rehearsal time? Also please think about using this time to try out ideas as well as setting up a technical rehearsal…the space does not just have to be used for tech…feedback from you guys would be appreciated, any comments, questions or ideas?
