White Moon’s trip to Acta Community Theatre

Post by Rebekah & Amy

Just over a month ago the cast and crew of White Moon took their youth-led production to acta Community Theatre in Bristol.

“We were incredibly proud of Doorstep Youth Theatre’s, young person led production of White Moon, written by Scarlett Howard.

The 20 person ensemble learnt to direct, facilitate, perform, produce and design every aspect of the show.  We also toured the piece to ACTA Community Theatre in Bristol where Alana hosted a brilliant Q&A afterwards. Sam and Jade were blown away by their work, the way they conducted themselves on tour as they did it all with such professionalism, joy and support for one another.”- Jade

 

“This amazing crew of young people have made their own show – totally themselves. They’ve written it, directed it, composed the music for it, choreographed it, designed it, costumed it, and teched it.” – Erin

 

 

A massive congratulations to everyone in Doorstep Youth Theatre for their three performances of White Moon at The Palace Theatre, Stage Left and one on their tour to ACTA Community Theatre in Bristol!

 

 

Thank you to Stage Left at Palace Theatre and ACTA in Bristol for having us.

 

“As stage manager, I liaised with Katie Delaney (acta’s production manager) ahead of the performance to get as much in place as we could before our arrival. A tech week condensed down to a couple of hours, we still smashed it, getting set and tech up and running in no time!

 

 

After a tough dress/tech run getting used to the new space we broke for lunch, we had some fun hanging out and eating pizza. As we knew it was our last show it was a buzzy but stressful atmosphere leading up to the performance. Things might not have gone to plan but it was still our best performance to date and the audience reception was just the cherry on top!” – Rebekah

 

 

Keep an eye out for the exciting release of a full White Moon Soundtrack supported by Sound Communities and a film exploring the creation process being released by Doorstep’s Amy Mellows very soon!
