Tuesday 8th January - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone, hope you have recovered from all that Christmas food!

With the holiday over, we need to get serious about Panto Rehearsals! More on that later, however.

Please come wearing your KYSPA T Shirts for that added level of professionalism. Thanks.

That's half an hour EARLY, folks!!! (Remember to wrap up warm!)

This will NOT be a panto rehearsal but the first pre-production meeting for the CRASAC DVD. Present will be representatives from CRASAC, the film company and Tir Na. Parents may attend if they wish. Just a few of our members will be needed at this session so if you don't hear from me, you do not need to attend at this stage - learn your lines instead!

For anyone new, read about this project in the September archive on the 11th and 16th September. Let me know if you would like to be involved.

All participants need to regard this as a professional acting project - because that is exactly what it is albeit unpaid. The film is for national release into schools and youth organisations. For anyone interested in acting or TV/Film as a career, this is a unique opportunity and important first step.

I expect you to approach this project as young adults and professional actors. I'm expecting a lot of you, but I know you can, and will, deliver. Please arrive at the building quietly and in the right frame of mind to get down to some serious work, rehearsing and discussion. Our reputation rests quite heavily on the success of this project and you will be making a first impression upon a growing local film company we may wish to work with again.

SNOW WHITE rehearsals will be scheduled for Sunday pm at the end of the week. From here on, we will rehearse at least twice a week, possibly 3 times. We need to be ready by the end of the month. Just a "heads up".
