Previous Zoom Readings
In February 2019 we began recording Radio Plays. We started with two plays which were originally part of the Street Theatre that was Kendal Yarns in the summer of 2016.
Radio plays had some advantages for the society:
They allowed us to create a production with very little overhead, either of time or of money.
They gave a Drama opportunity to those who had less time to commit or who could no longer remember lines.
They gave us new skills both in production and performance.
2020 Radio Plays
Something Different' and 'The Wigan Train' both penned by Lancaster based, John Martin.
On 6th February 2020 at Victoria Hall, Bob Somerset stage managed the recordings assisted by directors Deborah Powell and Jim Robson.
