It’s been a tough couple of weeks, with the read through and auditions for Ravenscroft and we were awed by the incredible range of talent that we had – Inspector Ruffing could’ve been cast three times at the audition!!
After a lot of thought, we are pleased to be able to announce the cast for Ravenscroft which will be:
Inspector Ruffing – Craig Cameron-Fisher
Marcy – Genni Trickett
Mrs Ravenscroft – Alison Arnold
Gillian – Jacinta Collins
Dolly – Lily Tomlinson
Mrs French – Sarah Hill
Thank you to all involved and remember to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in helping out backstage!!
We’ve just received a lovely review of Arabian Nights and would love to share it!!
Take a look here to read what they had to say about our show – we’re really pleased!!
Remember, you can find all of our reviews and press on this page.
We are perhaps the luckiest theatre group in South-West London as for Arabian Nights we were graced with TWO incredible professional photographers coming along to take rehearsal shots. It will take me some time to whittle the amazing pictures down to less than 100 for the website, but in the meantime, Q2 Players would love to extend a huge thank you to both Rishi Rai and Ben P G – we honestly couldn’t have asked for a more complimentary pair of photographers.
Take a look at a couple of their photos below:
After a few hurdles on the road, we are pleased to announce that the first two nights of Arabian Nights have proven to be a huge success, with audiences leaving full of praise.
It has been a tough road with cast changes and chicken pox, but once again, Q2 have pulled it off.
There are still a few tickets left for the matinee and evening performance tomorrow so make sure you book now while you still have a chance!
The Swan Award nominations are finally in, and Q2 has had another bumper year!
GLORIOUS directed by Genni Trickett
BLITHE SPIRIT directed by John Gilbert, Fiona Poole (Asst. Dir.)
Best Actress in a Play
Mia Skytte as Elvira in BLITHE SPIRIT
Best Actor in a Play
Ian Kinane as Cosme McMoon in GLORIOUS
We’re still waiting to hear all the nominations, but we’ve also heard on the grapevine that a few of our members have received nominations through other theatre groups – updates as we hear them, but congratulations to:
Craig Cameron Fisher as Shylock in THE MERCHANT OF VENICE (RSS)
Best Supporting Actor
Scott Tilley as Caliban in THE TEMPEST (RSS)
Best Design Element
Junis Olmscheid for THE TEMPEST (Costume) (RSS)
Best Overall Design and Stage Presentation
Junis Olmscheid for A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (TTC)
This does, of course, mean that Craig and Ian will be head to head for that best actor award, but I think we can all agree that they both deserve it!!
Aren’t we all a talented bunch!?
