    Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean Brixham theatre company, The South Devon Players theatre company announce open auditions for their most ambitious show to date. Les Miserables; The Memoirs of Jean Valjean is a new non-musical theatre show, based directly on Victor Hugo’s thrilling novel of redemption, love and revolution, set in 19th Century France. The South Devon Players are performing this show in September 2013 around Torbay, and have announced open auditions for the production. Whether you are ten or eighty, there are large and small roles available and the auditions are open to both members and new people as well. People new to acting and performing are welcome. All we ask is that if you are aged under 16 (there are three child roles), that you are accompanied by a parent or guardian, and that all performers are reliable; able to rehearse on Wednesday evenings, and available for the shows, between 4th – 8th September. The auditions will take the form of script readings on Wednesday May 15th 2013, at 7pm, at Chestnut Heights Community Centre, Poplar Close, Brixham TQ5 0SA. Rehearsals commencing the following Wednesday (same time/ venue). As well as performers, we are also looking for front of house helpers, and set/ stage hands too, so if you do not feel like performing, there are plenty of other ways to get involved in the show. Please note that Act 2 of the show is likely to contain strobe or light flashes. The South Devon Players theatre company are an award-winning, completely non-profit community/ amateur theatre company founded in 2005, based in Brixham and featured on BBC 1 national television in January 2013. We mainly specialise in shows about local history, but sometimes expand to wider historical events (as in the case of this production) as well. We are family friendly, lively and welcoming to all who wish to be involved in theatre at any level. In the past, members have gone on to perform in major feature films, and train at RADA. Our membership ranges from age 10 to 65, and from professional performers to complete beginners, all of whom work as part of a team to create new exciting shows which are then brought to our local community. Les Miserables: The Memoirs of Jean Valjean will be directed by one of the theatre company’s founders; Miss Laura J, who as well as being a professional performer and model in her own right, also holds a Masters degree in teaching performing arts, as well as degrees in film production, and photography – and has performed in another production of Les Miserables in the past, elsewhere. She is accompanied by Mrs Louise German, as assistant director. Louise is the other co-founder of the South Devon Players, who has decades of community and amateur theatre experience in her own right. Both are experienced directors, and looking forward to joining you to create the biggest show the South Devon Players have yet produced.

          The Tilt-Shift effect or miniaturising style, always brought back memories of visiting the Model Village as a child and of long sunny days on holiday in Torbay...so to make a film combining both seemed logical. The film was shot over 6 weeks in the summer of 2012 ( usually on the rare sunny days that we had). We combined over 10,000 photographs to make the film and then intercut it with footage from the Model Village. The final film shows Torbay from a completely different perspective to how we usually see it. Its amazing how close to a Model Village Torbay actually looks with its picture postcard features.

                Music from the show Ambitious community theatre show brings to life a Medieval Christmas 1285 The South Devon Players bring to life their most ambitious project yet. This award-winning non-profit community/ amateur theatre company from Brixham primarily specialise in bringing to life the history and legends of the county of Devon, in newly researched and written shows. With a cast of 15, including actors, “medieval” musicians, dancers and gymnasts, many playing more than one role, they bring to life the Christmas of 1285, in a local lords hall. What was special for Devon in 1285? Previously, in November 1283, a dispute at Exeter Cathedral had come to a head and resulted in the murder of the Cathedrals precentor, Walter Lechlade (previously the Vicar Choral at Wells Cathedral). For some time a dispute had raged as to who should become Dean of the cathedral, with John Pycot wishing to be elected, while the Bishop, Peter Quinil, was reluctant. Finally Pycot convinced the cathedrals chapter to elect him as Dean, while the bishop was away. The Bishop, however, on his return, refused to recognise the election of John Pycot, and instead put Walter Lechlade in the position of precentor, and the head of the cathedral’s chapter, thus effectively rendering Pycot’s position irrelevant. In 1283, Pycot and other conspirators, including the mayor of Exeter, Alured De Porta arranged the murder of Walter Lechlade. While the Bishop and his supporters certainly had their suspicions as to the culprits, they were blocked in meaningful investigations, and in the end, as the Vatican began asking questions, the Bishop appealed to King Edward I to come to Exeter. King Edward I spent the Christmas of 1285 in Exeter at Rougemont castle, and his intervention was not without result; on Boxing Day, the city mayor and several other men were hanged at Heavitree for their part in the conspiracy. The theatre show takes this historical incident as a core storyline, with flashbacks to scenes of the conspirators, and then telling the story of King Edward visiting a local lord who was rumoured (incorrectly) to be implicated in the plot. The show is set in the lords hall while he is holding a Christmas/ Midwinter celebration. Thus, this groundbreaking medieval show is filled with traditional medieval entertainment including mumming, carols, dance, gymnasts, and live harp and flute music, as well as a full scale play. The audience are seated as if in the hall as guests, thus adding to the flavour of a medieval “experience”. In further news, part of the script, one of the mummers plays, written by the theatre company secretary Laura J, telling the legend of St Boniface (a Devon saint from Crediton) and how he is linked to the origin of the Christmas Tree, has been accepted as a short play, by a national script agent. Paignton performance - Friday January 11th 2013 - 7.30pm - at the Baptist Church, Winner Street, Paignton TQ3 3BH Tickets £5 adult, or £3.50 (under 16/ proof of means-tested benefits) Brixham performance - Saturday January 12th 2013 - 3pm and 7.30pm – at the Christian Community Centre, Fore Street (town centre) Brixham TQ5 8DS Tickets £5 adult, or £3.50 (under 16/ proof of means-tested benefits) Torquay performance - Sunday January 13th 2013, in aid of the Rotary Club, 3pm St Matthias Church, Babbacombe Road, Wellswood, Torquay, TQ1 1HW Tickets £6 adult, £4 Child (school age) More information from the theatre company website at http://southdevonplayers.weebly.com (social networks: facebook: southdevonplayers/ Twitter: sdevonplayers)

                      The Ballad of Resurrection Bob - open theatre auditions in Brixham Male and female cast required, ages 16 – 75. Casting will take place at Chestnut Heights Community Centre, Poplar Close, Brixham, on January 23rd 2013, at 7pm for 7.30 start, at open auditions. Rehearsals commencing every Wednesday evening from thereon, the performances will take place late April/ Early May 2013 around Torbay. About the show: In the summer of 2012 The South Devon Players were filmed for a BBC 2 programme, performing a clip of their upcoming 2013 production The Ballad Of Resurrection Bob, the humourous true story of a 19th century smuggler, in the Devon fishing port of Brixham, where the theatre company is based. This award-winning non-profit community theatre company primarily specialises in bringing to life the history and legends of the county of Devon, in newly researched and written shows. In past centuries, smuggling of silks, tobacco and brandy, was rife along the coasts of the Southwest, and the smugglers invented ever more creative, and in some cases very humourous tactics to evade the law. In the case of “Resurrection” Bob Elliott, he faked his own death in order to transport contraband to Totnes, under the noses of the coastguards, in a very large coffin. Later that night, the story tells, the local coastguards encountered Bob on the highway, and were convinced that they had seen a ghost. From this escapade, Bob earned his nickname of “Resurrection Bob”. The Smugglers Hotel, in Brixham town center, is said to have been where Bob lived, at the time of the escapade, and indeed, that is how the hotel earned it’s name Performers are welcome of all ages 16 to the sky’s the limit, and previous experience is not required (what is required, is commitment and the ability to function in a hard-working friendly team) No role is paid (no one in the theatre company is paid), as we are a non-profit, voluntary group with a turnover of less than £1,000. However, other "perks" are available free of charge eg: free photoshoot/ video clips/ references! If you would like more information on becoming involved with us, who we are and what our ethos is, please see the "about us" page on our website. Feel free to pass on the casting calls to anyone anywhere who may possibly be interested, but make sure ALL information (including audition details, our website, location etc) is included. Thank you!
