The Collective -collaborative ‘theatre-making’ groups for adults

We are about to start rehearsing for our two plays that were voted for by the Northampton Community at our Scuff Night in July 2017.

Deep Freeze by Greg Dallas and No Child by Emma Matthews will start rehearsals in December 2017... and we want you to be part of it!

We are currently recruiting new performers to take part in these productions. The Collective is open access and anyone can get involved- regardless of experience!

We even have bursaries available for those who may not usually engage in this type of activity due to the financial barrier... So ask us for bursary information when you register your interest.

We are auditioning for the project- but this is only to allocate parts- everyone who is a member of the group will be in one of the productions!

Auditions are on 14th November 2017 and you can sign up to take part by requesting an information pack below. We will then send you the information you need to take part.

How The Collective works

It’s for the ‘trained’ and ‘un-trained’ artists to come together and develop their craft, whilst learning and growing as a collective.

Our Collective sessions take place at, Derngate, Northampton.

The Collective: Performers
Tuesdays 7-9pm (£65 a term)

You might fancy yourself as a writer, you might be a 'trained actor' or maybe you’ve always thought about directing. Led by Warts and All Theatre’s Artistic Director Christopher Elmer-Gorry, you will explore the craft of making a brand new play. During 2016-2017 The Collective developed ideas for new plays and were presented to an audience at our Scuff Night at The audience voted on their two favourite plays, these two plays will be developed and performed in 2017-2018 by The Collective:Performers.

Day: Tuesday
Time: 7.00-9.00pm (2 hour session)
Cost: £65 a term  (Bursaries may be available)

The Collective: Makers
First Sunday of every month 4-6pm (£65 for 10 sessions)

This group is for anyone who has an idea for a play. You might be an actor, writer, director, or theatre maker. You might have never written a play ever, but want to have a go! This group meets monthly and over the course of the academic year they work on writing activities, share their ideas and develop a 10-15 minute extract of their own play.

A selection of these extracts will be selected by Warts and All Theatre for our Scuff Night in the Summer of 2018. The extracts will be performed by The Collective:Performers and the audience will vote on which ideas will be developed into full productions by Warts and All Theatre in our 2018-2019 season.

Day: First Sunday of every month (October 1st, 5th November, 3rd December, 7th January, 4th February, 1st March, 4th April, 6th May, 3rd June, 1st July.)
Time: 4-6pm (2 hour session)
Cost: £65 for the year (Bursaries may be available)
