Storytelling

Playreadings

Telling stories is part of what makes us human! Rediscover the joy with us and join us for a morning or afternoon of theatre magic. Get a group of friends together and we will read and rehearse a play -discuss character, find our voices and have a great time doing it!  You choose a comedy or drama and we will find a short one-act play or scene to get our teeth into.  This is a perfect at-home activity for small groups and themed occasions.

Rehearsing our play

Whether one writes poetry, plays, memoirs, speeches, etc we can help to bring these alive using your voice and helping you give expression to your work and bringing it to life.   Small group sessions are best and can be tailor-made to suit the group.

Productions

Celia of Circle Productions is a superb director of one person shows.  She knows just how to get an actor to tell his/her story with truth and passion. The Oom Schalk Stories has been one of our biggest achievements, while 25 years of telling the stories of Llareggub, the village in Dylan Thomas’ Under Milk Wood is Coleen’s favourite piece to direct.

Actors/Playwrights 

Celia directed Coleen’s story, Perfect Day,  for the National Arts Festival 2021 for online viewing.  Covid-19 has seen artists and actors find new ways to perform and engage audiences.

If you have a story to tell and you want to see it on a stage in front of an audience, have it filmed or submitted for an online Festival like the National Arts Festival V Fringe, we can help you script your story and direct you or an actor suited to the part.
