There is one more rehearsal for the show, this means everyone has set characters, and a good idea of scenarios and interactions. The rehearsal will be on Saturday May 21st at the Legion, 1.30pm until about 3pm.
Bridgit Cusack will also be visiting; as you know we are doing pirate improv theatre, for those who c...an make it, at All Saints Church, Brixham, on the evening of Friday July 8th. She is coming to see what we do, and also to get names of those definitly doing it.
Rehearsal is costumed as much as is possible.
Getting to Plymouth on May 22nd/ Travel
If relying on public transport, the travel timetables are below:
X80 bus - www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/devon_cornwall/journey_planning/timetables/timetable.php?day=3&source_id=2&service=X80%2FX81&routeid=2301151&operator=6&source=sp
Train times :
Outbound: 09:49 Paignton [PGN] Plymouth [PLY] 11:18 1h 29m
Return: 19:55 Plymouth [PLY] Paignton [PGN] 21:41 1h 46m
21:15 Plymouth [PLY] Paignton [PGN] 22:49 1h 34m
If travelling on public transport, I suggest the group going by public transport liase on travelling together (my Mum has backed out, she has gone into hermit mode for a bit and is refusing to go out except to the corner shop) meeting in Paignton for the train or the bus.
If everyone meets outside www.capn-jaspers.co.uk/ (check thier site for a Google map) then thats a good landmark, right by the performance space, and easy to find with HMS Bounty moored alongside. Just head for Plymouth Barbican from either bus or train station. (Bretonside bus station is the closest, only about 10 mins walk maximum. Train station is about 20 mins across the city centre)
We will have your boarding passes for the Bounty, and theatre stuff set up. (The set-up crew with all the kit will be down there well before).
As far as I know, travel-wise, Dave, Steve, Tasha and I, plus props and gear, are going down in Daves car to get things set up early, meet organisers, get passes and whatnot done, and Warwick, Shaun, Mike, and Jema are coming down on public transport.
Plans for the day
Costumes are needed obviously. This is improv interactive theatre, pirate based, around the antics of a crew just arrived in Plymouth, and up to everything bar the kitchen sink - remember to keep it family friendly! We have the run of the audience with our donation buckets for the Players, and I will be printing a load of the newsletter and flyers to be given out as well. Its a BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG promo opportunity for the group. It is street theatre, and needs to be of a professional standard!
