I am chairman of Arts for Rutland and wondered if you would be kind enough to pass this opportunity onto your contacts.

Calling all actors and crew! The Rutlanders Return is a newly written play about life in rural Rutland after the end of WW1. It is being professionally directed by Martin Berry, musically directed by Matt Marks and stage managed by Graham Ellstone. The play is being written by Andy Barrett from Nottingham and we need cast and crew.
The project has been funded by the Heritage Lottery, Oakham Town Council, Uppingham Town Council and Rutland WW1 committee. The material for the script has been researched by a group of local historians and is being transformed into a dramatic performance with music.
A great chance to learn from the professional team. Please come along to Oakham Scout Hut Grampian way Oakham on September 2nd at 11.30am or see for more information. Performances 25th to 28th October in Oakham, Uppingham, Kendrew Barracks, Cottesmore and South Luffenham.

Lovers of light opera have a treat in store on Saturday 17 June when a group of musical friends – Amici – present Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Trial by Jury’ and other operatic highlights in the beautiful setting of Morcott Church.

The 18-strong choir is boosted by professional soloists Nick Hardy (Opera North), Joanne Rondel and Judith Tinston who all perform under the leadership of George Robey.

The first half of the programme is Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Trial By Jury’, a comic opera in one act. After a relaxed interval during which drinks will be offered, the second half of the concert is a mix of operatic hits including a show-stopping ‘Nessun Dorma’ and memorable choral pieces, some of which have been arranged specially for the concert by choir members.
