  • Rehearsals are going well

  • Free rehearsal venue of Somerset House has fallen through for reasons unknown. Alternative space has been found at the rear of The Clifton. It is not an isolated room, which is a little unusual, but it’ll do. We have also been offered Peter Stone’s flat as a space if needed.

  • 3rd version of the rehearsal venue should go out this evening

  • Possible issue. If there is a snap election then Newman Hall is legally obliged to provide a space for voting to take place, this can go on until 10pm. Fingers crossed that this will not happen during show week, in any case we would have around 25 days notice.

  • Production team would like to buy another two LED Multi-coloured lights to go with the two we already have. This would give more flexibility and better light quality for all lit shows. Light are around £100 each. APPROVED

  • Ticket sales are going fine, currently we have around 25-30 people for the Thursday, Friday and Saturday matinee performances. None so far for the Saturday night performance and only one for the Wednesday performance. Expecting many more ticket sales closer to the date.

  • Cap on spending for Facebook event pushing and advertising currently set at £30.

  • Publicity is already in most of the free websites including Bristol 24/7

  • Advert in the BAOS programme went out and will be in it next week.

  • We would like to include headshots, at least of the main cast, in our programme, Laettie to bring her camera to the next rehearsal to take pictures.

  • Costumes – Lucy is on it and seems to be doing a good job.

  • Set – We have a backdrop and lots of fabric to make banners for the Castle scenes.

  • Announce contest for a randomly chosen person who likes and shares the Facebook event to win 2 free tickets. Winner to be announced Mon 11th November.

  • Sponsorship for the programme ideas? The Lansdown? Whatever curry place we end up having our social at?

  • Ushers needed, 4 per night. Ask Friends & Family, they get a free ticket if they help out.
