Support our Bursary recipients by Waiting…..For Godot

March 16, 2017 - Reuben Milne

Every year, SaTG offers The Mo Pearce Bursary which aims to support amateur projects that connect to theatre in any particular way.  The bursary was set up in memory of the late Mo Pearce, former Trustee, director and actress for the company who inspired so many people with her love of Shakespeare and performance

SaTG are delighted to announce that from Friday 31st of March, One Tree Theatre Company will be performing Waiting For Godot at The Festival Theatre in Cambridge in a series of performances partly funded by the bursary and we’d encourage anyone who is able to pop in and support the production.  For more information, visit the website here.

Join us for some Shakespearean music at Hunts Library

March 13, 2017 - Reuben Milne

As part of National Shakespeare week, we are partnering with our good friends at Hunts library to put on a special music-themed event this Saturday (18 March).  Between 11 am and midday, Ian Favell our musical director will take us on a visual and auditory tour of shakespearean instruments and musical styles, showing how music compliments the wonderful language of the Bard.  And to get everyone in the mood for this year’s summer production, he’ll finish off the event with an exclusive preview of a piece of middle eastern music we’ll be using in Pericles, giving everyone the chance to get involved and create a piece of live music.  See you there.

Tickets On Sale Now For Summer Production

March 1, 2017 - Reuben Milne

I know, doesn’t seem like a moment since we were watching the story of The Tempest unfold in the courtyard at The George Hotel, Huntingdon but nevertheless, tickets are now on sale for Pericles, written by Mr Shakespeare and directed by Richard Brown.  This cracking tale involving pirates, shipwrecks, jousting knights (and the odd excursion into the seamier side of life) will be gracing the stage at The George from Tuesday 27 June until Saturday 8 July (no performance on Sunday 2 July).  Many nights sell out fast so check your diaries, call your friends and click on this link to book your tickets.  See you there.

Reduced ticket prices for U16s

February 22, 2017 - Reuben Milne

It goes without saying that we here at Shakespeare at The George love a bit of Shakespeare (the clue’s in the name).  We believe that seeing his words come to life on stage is the best way to ‘get’ his timeless storytelling (and bawdy humour) so we are excited to announce that this summer U16s will be able to enjoy the adventures of Pericles for just £7.50.  The U16 concession will be available for every performance, making it easier to introduce younger audiences to the magic of Shakespeare for the first time.  All tickets for all performances go on sale here from March 1.  See you there!

October 20 AGM – An opportunity to remember

October 17, 2016 - Reuben Milne

This year has marked the passing of two leading lights of the SaTG Trust family.  At the start of the year we lost the inestimable wardrobe mistress Jo Fradley and this weekend we learned that one of our longest standing members, Phil Cox, passed away peacefully following a spell in hospital.  We intend to honour both at this week’s AGM so please do come along to join us in remembering such legendary individuals who had such an impact on the group.

Pericles auditions update

August 19, 2016 - Reuben Milne

From the director;
To my delight, already in August I am getting requests for audition times. Please keep them coming and if appropriate, please let me know which of the 19th or 20th November you would prefer.
I am currently working on other elements of the production so I plan to actually set audition times in the second half of September.
Please also note the following:
If you are auditioning I will request you prepare (but you do not necessarily have to learn) a very short monologue from any Shakespeare play (10-15 lines) plus a short verse of any poem you happen to like. You can be as flexible as you like!
Thank you!
Richard Brown
