Below is the list of our upcoming shows; audition information can be found here.
Information about past productions can be seen here.
These are challenging times and the principal concern for the RSS must be for the well being and safekeeping of everyone.
Our thoughts are very much with those who have been directly affected by the pandemic – whether themselves or members of their families.
As with any theatre – professional or amateur – the MWT is currently closed and it is unlikely that the MWT can reopen for rehearsals/performances until the current social distancing restrictions are ended given the size and layout of our theatre.
Having regard to this and current government forecasts as to when such restrictions might be ended we have reluctantly had to decide that, in addition to the shows that have already been cancelled, our September production of Be My Baby will also have to be cancelled – there being no realistic prospect that both rehearsals and performances of this production could take place in the Mary Wallace Theatre.
We will make a decision on the cancellation of subsequent 2020 productions on a show by show basis – prior to the audition for each production. Such decision being based on the then prevailing restrictions and government forecasts as to future relaxation of such restrictions.
Whilst these are sad decisions to have to report we are keeping the dramatic fires burning with a series of online readings and other events.
Following four successful online readings of the two parts of Henry IV there will be a reading of
Henry V over the evenings of June 15 and 29.
Both the RSS Junior Youth Theatre group and the RSS Young Actors Company have been holding weekly online sessions and the latter group has been taking part in a weekly YouTube presentation featuring young theatre groups from Malta, India and South Africa as well as the RSS YAC.
On Friday June 19 we have our online monologue evening – Making Theatre In the Dark. Indeed such has been the response to this event from prospective performers and writers that there will now be two further evenings of Making Theatre in the Dark on Friday July 3 and Friday July 17.
We look forward to being able to welcome our audiences back to the Mary Wallace Theatre at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime we wish you all safety and good health.
