    Mic Drop: A Musical Throw Down

    Who wins? You decide! Innovative Audience Participation in Centre Stage London’s Mic Drop Mic Drop - a musical throw-down, lets the audience decide who wins in an innovative musical showcase. It’s officially on! In a new musical concept, Mic Drop, Team Girls take on Team Boys in this musical throw-down of epic proportions! Each team will battle for fame and glory but only one can be victorious. Who will it be? Well, the audience has the power! The creative team of Centre Stage London’s latest production Mic Drop wanted the show to be as interactive as possible and let the audience decide who wins at each performance. They thought about many options including a digital voting system on mobile phones before settling on a far simpler (and arguably more fun!) method, the ‘Ready Steady Cook’ audience voting system! Audience members will be given a voting card upon entry; one side supporting #teamboys and the other supporting #teamgirls. Teams will compete over several themed rounds, guided by our energetic compere. During the performance the audience make up their minds which team they think has performed the best and who should win the performance for the evening. At the finale, the host will ask the audience to vote, displaying their cards, and the winning team will be decided. It’s ‘Popstars’ meets ‘Pitch Perfect’ with some incredible talent battling it out for glory! A great night out with something for everyone, featuring well-loved classics and re-worked pop arrangements from the Four Seasons to Celine Dion. Who wins? You decide! The production opens in two weeks, so there’s no better time to grab your tickets, pick your side, and consider the gauntlet thrown!

    Audrey 2 Pod 3 Required

    Hi, I am directing a wonderful production of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS in Woking, Surrey. The show week is in November. I am looking to hire or buy Audrey 2 Pod 3 (the "Feed Me" one not the final big one). It needs to be the variety where the puppeteer sits not kneels so his/her feet can be the animated roots. We can modify things if you have the basic pod. Thank you for any help you can offer. Warmest regards James Here is a video that shows what we would like to achieve:

    A Bunch Of Amateurs

    A comedy by Ian Hislop & Nick Newman. Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steel arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford – only to find that this is not the birthplace of the Bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village. And instead of Sir Kenneth Branagh and Dame Judi Dench, the cast are a bunch of amateurs trying to save their theatre from developers. Jefferson’s monstrous ego, vanity and insecurity are tested to the limit by the enthusiastic am-dram thespians. As acting worlds collide and Jefferson’s career implodes, he discovers some truths about himself – along with his inner Lear!

    Earthquakes in London

    From the writer of Doctor Foster and King Charles III, Mike Bartlett's Earthquakes in London is set in the politically charged post-election summer of 2010. Combining a strong sense of humanity with epic ambition, this production staged in traverse at the Bridewell Theatre, presents a fast and furious metropolitan crash of people, scenes and decades, as three sisters attempt to navigate their dislocated lives and loves, while their dysfunctional father, a brilliant scientist, predicts global catastrophe. ‘The theatrical equivalent of a thrilling roller-coaster ride.' (The Telegraph)
