Qt Theatre Group

QT Theatre Group’s last production was Chance Encounters, many months and two lockdowns ago! The two one-act plays in rehearsal had to be postponed as a result of Covid-19. QTs, like so many other theatre companies, have been dark since early 2020 and I’m sure that regular members and audiences are suffering the withdrawal symptoms!!
Well, I’m pleased to say that, following a committee meeting in early June, we can start to gear up again, albeit slowly. Our wonderful venue, The Old Chapel, is able to accommodate us once more. However, audience capacity restrictions, stringent rules on seating, social distancing, customer flow, sanitisation and so on, mean that theatres cannot yet return to the previous ‘normal’ theatre experience. For small companies, like QTs, there are the additional challenges of limitations on how many performers can be on stage and, more importantly, how many performers can gather to rehearse. We have never been able to have that many people on stage at the best of times (little stage = small cast!). So, what do we have in mind?
One of our favourite writers, David Tristram, has written a very funny One Act play called “Lockdown in Little Grimley”! We are considering putting on a production of this in the autumn, most probably at the middle to end of November. We will, of course, keep you updated.
Please get in touch if you would like to have a chat about this; drop us an email qtsyston@gmail.com, or phone 07388 593913
From all at Syston QT Theatre Group, we look forward to seeing you soon.
