A while ago AL spoke to Derek Willis about the Shropshire Drama Company production of ART which was playing at The Walker Theatre at Theatre Severn. We gave away tickets for the show and got the opportunity to come along and speak to the cast backstage.
Starting off, we speak to director Derek and Neville Street who was the stage manager. AL then took part in some voice warm-ups with the cast which left him feeling nostalgic after a very smooth rendition of Kumala Vista.
AL then speaks to cast members Ben, Tom and Dave who talk us through the play and how this particular play is tackled technically. This play is based on the outside view of a friendship between 3 guys who are debating a white painting on a white background. With huge chunks of dialogue and such a small cast the pressure is really on to nail their lines and performances.
Finally AL catches up with a member of the audience to discuss their thoughts on the ART.
I want to say a huge thank you to Neville Street for setting all of this up, giving me a lift to the theatre and even gifting me a really cool Minnesota Vikings hat! Also, to Derek and the members of the cast who spoke to me. This audio is amazing and I took so much from it. The was fantastic and you guys smashed it out of the park!
