Electric Blogs...

Just over a year ago, I was invited to attend a meeting of our local village drama group. Well - a spin-off meeting anyway, of people who might be interested in branching out into other forms of acting as well as/instead of the plays put on a few times a year by the group.

Alien invasions and the trouble with gravy.....

Chief Reporter for the Northwich Guardian, Gina Bebbington, came down to one of our Wednesday meetings, while we were discussing all manner of strange story ideas for Littlewich Ways. Click on the link to see what she made of the evening. I'm not convinced she thinks that any of us are completely sane, but since she fitted right in with the rest of us, and had lots of ideas, I reckon that we might just have a new recruit?

This evening we gave a short talk at Viva Juice Bar, as part of the Northwich LitFest events. We were able to chat about how Littlewich Ways Productions came into being, what we're currently working on and things we've learned along the way. We were also able to play the intro music and the first couple of rough-cut scenes.

First rehearsal!

This evening we had our first rehearsal with (almost) the full cast for the fours scenes that comprise episode one. The tech team were "rehearsing" too, so we did a bit of recording so they could get a feel for the kit.

It was odd listening to real people breathe life into characters we created and scenes that we wrote. I deliberately didn't take a script as I wanted to listen rather than read - and it makes a difference. Even with no sound effects, voices bring a whole new dimension to the experience!

We're hoping to have something out in time for LitFest, but it will depend on commitments. We're all volunteers after all ...

It's All Coming Together!

So casting is more-or-less complete. After several months of hard work, we have a theme tune written and sung by the talented Pete Thompson, 20 episodes written and a technical team in place.

Wednesday 15th April at 7pm in the Lion pub in Moulton sees the first full cast meeting, where each character will have the chance to introduce him/herself in character with a pre-prepared short speech. From there we'll move on to arranging dates for rehearsals and recording.
