  11. on Saturday 18th Oct, 2014, all day.
    AGM annual general meeting
    The South Devon Players theatre company, Brixham, are casting for a non-profit, crowdfunded internet film series, based on Victor Hugos novel Les Miserables, and will be holding auditions soon in Plymouth. Please contact us if interested: (and feel free to share with anyone interested)
    Our main group website:
    email: /



    Saturday November 15th, 3pm- 6pm in Studio 1, TR2 Training and Education Centre, 12 Neptune Park, Cattedown, Plymouth PL4 0SJ

    This audition session is hosted at the Theatre Royal Plymouth training and education centre, at Cattedown, not at the Theatre Royal building on Royal Parade.

    Please contact us to let us know to expect you.

    If you have already been cast, you do not need to attend this.

    We are also interested in hearing from anyone who would be interested in joining us as film crew, please drop us a line.

    Overall, this is a three year project, with filming taking place for each crowdfunded episode, over a few days, after funding has been raised. During filming days, shoots could be an early start to late finish, and for relevant characters also include night-time shoots. A lot of locations will be in and around Devon and Cornwall in the UK, some locations in France, especially for later episodes, will be looked into as well.

    This is a pretty different project, as it is based on Victor Hugo's UNABRIDGED novel (this is not the musical or a single feature film!) and we are remaining as faithful to that unabridged novel as is possible.

    Due to the nature of crowdfunding we are hoping to be able to pay our performers, but this depends entirely on funds raised, and may alter episode by episode as the series gets more well known, but at the minimum, once you have been cast as a character in the series, your expenses will be covered.

    Depending on what character you wish to audition for, and are cast as you may be required for several episodes (or indeed all of them), or simply one.


    Please contact us with a photograph, and a few words about the kind of role you are looking for. We will send you an audition pack and audition pieces suitable for your appearance. Please note that you do not need to learn the parts, just familiarise yourself with them.

    At the auditions, you will be asked to perform the piece on video camera, as a screen test. We will be looking at your characterization, focus, and the realism of your portrayal of the character. We also will be looking at how you take direction, and interact with other people.

    There are several child roles, but all children MUST be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.

    Please be aware that we cannot accept auditions or applications via email or video. In order to be considered for a role, you need to attend in person.

  14. We will be closed during October.

    This is due to building work being carried out in the kitchen.

    We will be reopen on Thursday 6th November from 6.30pm.

  15. Congratulations to the Mens A team in securing the first win of the season.  In a bruising encounter Alistair's team scrapped a 5-4 win away to Sawtry.  Alistair and Shazad won all three rubbers whilst the first pairing of Bash and Matt won two.  Previously the Mens A had lost 5-4 away to St Ivo, the Mixed B has lost 6-3 at home to March whilst the TDA Develoment team have lost 6-3 at St Marys 3, 7-2 at St Marys 2 and 8-1 at Wisbech.

  16. ~~Bexhill on Sea played host to some excellent basketball action last week with the long awaited visit of the USA Select Basketball organisation to the town as part of their European Exposure Tour, where the visitors competed in three events hosted by the home side ADA Bexhill Giants at the Bexhill Leisure Centre.
    Sunday 7th September started with the Hastings Direct sponsored International Tournament which saw host team the Giants joined by USA Select (Blue Team), Sussex County Champions BC Crawley United and National League side Sussex Bears in the four team Round Robin event.
    A fast paced day of basketball action played in a competitive spirit resulted in some excellent matches for spectators, who were treated to some athletic and energetic play from all teams.
    After six matches the quality of the USA team was evident as they won all of their three matches in close fought contests against the English based sides and were crowned champions.
     The matches between the English based sides was so close all finished with one victory and two defeats each between each other, and the Giants finishing runners up by virtue of their victory over Crawley.
    The Hastings Direct International Trophy was presented to the USA Select Team and their Coach David Lawrence by the Mayor of Bexhill Brian Kentfield.
    Tuesday 9th September saw the visit of the second USA Select team (White) compete in an exhibition match against the Giants, this was preceded by a youth coaching clinic for local youngsters, run by USA Select Coach Nicholas Melissaris and his players. The youngsters then stayed behind to watch the match which resulted in a comprehensive victory for the far superior USA team.
    The following evening saw USA Select (White) return to compete in another exhibition match against a Sussex Select team made up of players from the Sussex Basketball League. Once again the match was played in an excellent and competitive spirit, but the USA Select players who are showcasing their talents across Europe in the hope of professional contracts had too much skill and experience for the Select side and recoded their second comfortable win in two days, although the results were immaterial as the main purpose of the events was to promote basketball across the area.
    Giants Chairman Eric said “What a great few days we had with the visit of USA Select Basketball to the town.  As always their coaches and players are excellent ambassadors for the sport and we were privileged to be included in their European Exposure Tour and look forward to their return next year. The Club would like to thank our sponsors, helpers, referees and spectators for their support in making the visit an a great success”

  17. At last week's Barnetby League AGM, Don Dougherty - our Vice Captain  for that competition - received the Foster Challenge Cup  awarded to the League Champions, on behalf of Goxhill Bowls Club.

    Congratulations to everyone who has helped and contributed to this crowning of Goxhill as League Champions.

    Goxhill was the very first winner of the Barnetby & District Bowling League in 1935 and now again in what was the 80th year since the league began. (Though a few years were lost during the league's suspension during WW2.) 

    This makes a total of 13 championships for the Club and, whether or not you are superstitious, it will hopefully not be long before we can add to that total.

    A photograph of the cup in all its glory can be seen in the gallery for this website.

  18. Lighted Fools will return to Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre's Mill Studio from 16th to 18th April 2015 with Alan Bennett's 'The Old Country'

    Hilary and Bron appear to be a perfectly normal couple living in a small, peaceful house in the country but things are not as they seem. Alan Bennett’s The Old Country deals with questions of loyalty and betrayal, homeland and exile, friendship and family in a way which is both extraordinarily funny and exceptionally touching.

    The Lighted Fools cast will feature Richard Parish as Hilary. Wendy Davies as Bron, Derek Watts as Duff, Alison Brooks as Veronica, Nick Lund as Eric and Nancy Lund as Olga

    Richard Parish is the founding director of Lighted fools and has directed nineteen of the Company’s twenty-two productions.  He was last seen as Gregory Solomon, the Jewish antique dealer in The Price.  Previously he played the father in Caryl Churchill’s A Number,  Sir in The Dresser,  Gus in The Dumb Waiter’and Gogo in Waiting for Godot.

    Wendy Davies will be making her Lighted Fools’ debut to play Bron and we are very pleased to welcome her.  A performer and director with considerable experience, she has appeared with a number of Surrey companies although for some years now has worked mainly with The Ewhurst Players.

    This will be Nick Lund’s fifth appearance with Lighted Fools.  He was a memorable Wilfred Owen in Not About Heroes and followed that with performances as the hapless Lucky in Waiting for Godot Yvan in Art and Roy in Neville’s Island.

    Nancy Lund made her Lighted Fools’ debut in April 2014 with a harrowing performance as Paulina Salas in Death and the Maiden.

    Derek Watts makes a very welcome return to the Company after an absence of nine years to play Duff.  He was last seen with The Fools in Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell when he played twenty varied character parts.

    Alison Brooks will play his wife Veronica.  Alison gave memorable performances in the first four Lighted Fools’ productions, Reckoning, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, Noel and Gertie and David Hare’s Skylight.  We are very pleased to welcome her back.

    The Old Country will be directed and designed by David Hemsley-Brown. David previously directed Arthur Miller's The Price when Lighted Fools made its first visit to The Mill in April 2013. He has performed with the Company as Ben Hecht in Moonlight and Magnolias Serge in Art, Dr Roberto Miranda in Death and the Maiden and Neville in Neville's Island. He is now the Company's regular designer and has designed five previous productions. The Old Country will be his sixth.

    Lighting will be by Nigel Greenaway and sound by Alex Lyon.
