LNTG Shakespeare workshops at Central Library, 23rd/24th April

As you may have heard/read already, we Network people are putting on two free Shakespeare Workshops, imaginatively titled ‘Doing Shakespeare’, at Liverpool Central Library on Sat 23 and Sun 24 April (2-4pm). Yes, they’re free to take part in, but spaces are limited and you need to book at the Library or by email to library.enquiries@liverpool.gov.uk
So hurry, while there are still spaces!
These workshops form part of the St George’s Quarter festival – full information can be found in the flyer below:
Hope to see you there!

Workshop 23/09/14

Just a quick note to remind everyone that tomorrow’s (Tuesday 23rd) workshop is NOT in the usual Hope Street location but is instead In Performers Theatre School on Vernon Street, around the corner from Moorfields Station. Below is a handy map; basically if you find the Vernon Arms it’s the tall red brick building down that side road, and there’s a bell to ring. In a change from the advertised schedule I’ll be running the session tomorrow so be warned: there will be socks. It’s the usual time of 7pm, see you there!


Changes to Workshop prices and yearly membership update

Following our recent open meeting, it has been decided with regret to raise our Workshop fees to £3 waged and £1.50 unwaged with immediate effect. This is due to the fact that at the previous level the cost of hiring the room on Hope Street was proving a drain on our finances, a drain which will be significantly alleviated at the new price.

The good news is that we are also introducing a Membership scheme open to all. Becoming a General Member will entitle you to a £1 reduction on the entry price for all Network events, both productions and events such as quiz nights and the Christmas Revue. The cost of membership is set at £5, and will come with a membership card.

As anyone who has been in past productions will be aware, being cast in one of our plays means that you have to pay “subs” to make sure we are insured. This has now metamorphosed into becoming a Performing Member, which is essentially the same as being a General Member but with the added bonus of having been on the stage! The cost of becoming a Performing Member is now set at £15 waged and £7.50 unwaged. Again, this is something we’ve been very reluctant to do but which rising costs have forced upon us.

Both forms of membership will last for a year. If you would like to become a General Member contact us via liverpoolnetworktheatre@gmail.com. However, there is no obligation to do so and it is worth stressing that Workshops remain open to all!
