Community theatre project SURVIVES lock down!

    Project Play now needs support from audiences to survive! Rehearsals for Project Play, an exciting community theatre initiative, came to a stark halt in six towns across the southwest, just over a year ago.

    Everything “Dad’s Army” stopped – BUT…….Don’t panic! – They’ve hung in there Mr Mainwaring!  

    What is Project Play?

    “Project Pay brings communities together through a shared passion for theatre,” explains its Producer, Matthew Rock. “Essentially it is a touring play with a different cast at each venue, comprising people from that particular locality. They have rehearsed together, formed friendships and connections, and been part of an amazing theatrical experience. In addition, there are four other people in towns across the south who are playing exactly the same role as them and having the same experience in their own community - it offers a unique experience to compare notes and go on a shared journey.”
    Project Play is a community-based project offering theatre enthusiasts a superb opportunity to be involved in a professional staging of a popular play in their local theatre.
    The outcome of the project is a touring play that travels around various theatres in the southwest, recruiting actors and stage crew from that particular locality. There are no joining fees or subscriptions for those taking part, just the thrill of being involved in a project that attracts like-minded people and offers an unforgettable theatrical experience.
    Project Play raises money for charity through its work, and this year visits six venues across the southwest. In 2020 it will be supporting the Salisbury-based charity Help For Heroes.
