Summer project: The York Mystery Plays

2 Jul

Now that my (first) degree is over and I have more time to be doing theatrical stuff I will hopefully be updating my blog more regularly, especially because I hope to study a Masters in Theatre in the coming academic year!

For now, my plug is the York Mystery Plays 2012 (you can follow them on twitter @yorkmystery2012 ). I’m now in rehearsals as a member of the ensemble and it’s looking spectacular, not least because the stage itself is going to be massive but also because there are so many talented people involved. The production is professional but the cast (apart from two) is made up of members of the community… but if I hadn’t had told you that, you wouldn’t have guessed!

It’s on from 2nd August – 27th August and is taking place out of doors in the Museum Gardens. Tickets can be booked through York Theatre Royal.

So if you’re sick of the Olympics already like I am, or just fancy an awesome production of a brilliant story, come along! And I can promise you that you at least will stay dry…

And if you come along when the Carpenters are performing, I can also promise some fantastic faces such as this (taken during the Waggon Mystery Plays 2010…):
