Baked Alaska Filming: 80% and rising…

Baked-Alaska-8019---WEBHave you checked the fundraising page for Filming Baked Alaska recently?
We’ve currently raised 82% of the target…. that’s an amazing £33,000!

This means we’re confident that filming can go ahead, it’s in the diary for this summer.

The recent boost in funding has come from a number of larger donors and organisations keen to make the film happen. In total we’ve had about £30,000 donated by trusts and organisations, but equally important are the donations from individuals, however small, so thank you to all of you who have given or told others about the campaign.

We’re not quite there, and that last £7,000 we still have to raise can help us do even more – film more of the show, create a better resource, and get them out to more people.

Can you help?

By donating (if you haven’t already) and telling others. It’s as easy as going to the justgiving page and clicking the share on Facebook button (or Twitter or email if you’d prefer).

Wanted: Youth Theatre and Education Assistants for 2012-13

Riding Lights Theatre Company is seeking volunteer Youth Theatre and Education Assistants for 2012-13. There are three periods available for this opportunity:

  • September to December 2012
  • January to April 2013
  • April to July 2013

We would be very happy to hear from people who would be interested in volunteering for one or more of these periods.

This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who is interested in working with young people in the theatre! It will involve acting as an Assistant to the Youth Theatre Director, and will offer experience in areas such as Youth Theatre rehearsals, workshop facilitating, stage management and administration.

We’ve had volunteer Youth Theatre Assistants for a number of years here at Friargate, and we love having them around. We asked Hannah Goudie, one of  2011 volunteers to tells us how she found the experience:

“Working as an Education Assistant for Riding Lights was a great opportunity. I really enjoyed the variety of the role, learning by actively being involved in the youth theatre sessions, as well as stage management, schools workshops and admin.

I particularly enjoyed the chance to work with a company that had Christianity at the centre and found the support of staff was fantastic.

The role offered great challenges to work with different ages and abilities in both youth theatre and school settings, which also provided a good range of experience for future work.”

The application process for this role will be subject to interview and an Enhanced CRB check.
