Hi Everyone

While my opening gambit is probably more suited to January 1st, I believe it was Samuel Johnson (or was it Danny Dyer?)  who once said that there's a time that "old things are made new and new things made familiar"

I mention this because on Friday we bring you something completely new in the shape of the excitingly titled BRAND NEW COMEDY SHOW!!

Devised and created by the performers themselves, and directed by improv guru Seamus Allen (School of The Night, London 50 Hour Improvathon, Gonzo Moose), this one-off performance will be the world premiere of a brand new piece of theatre. Think 'Whose Line Is It Anyway' mixed with 'Airplane' and a bit of clown thrown in for good measure.
 
We'll be open at 7.30pm and it'll cost you nothing to get in.  Though we suggest you keep £5 aside as a dontation.

All proceeds go to the Read College Student Hardship Fund to help encourage and nurture up-and-coming talent in the performing arts.

On Saturday. It's time for FIESTA LATINA

A little piece of Cuba hidden away in Reading. A relaxed and friendly Latin party with lots of Latin music so you can dance, or just socialise. You can expect plenty of Salsa, tango and whatever the mood suggests: bachata, milonga, merengue and reggaeton. Maybe more!
 
We’re open from 9pm and it’ll cost you a paltry £6.to get in

Finally on Sunday, we have CRASH TEST DRAMA

The Crash Test Drama group meet on the last Sunday of every month with great opportunities to create drama…
 
They can provide constructive feedback on your audition pieces, help you source new writing, or set up a workshop with other actors and a director.
 
If you've written a piece that you'd like to see acted out? We will throw some actors at you, perform it and provide feedback.
 
Cold readings, moved readings, targeted workshops and feedback sessions - all to help inspire your next writing project.
 
If you're looking for guidance on a specific area of acting or directing? We can arrange for an experienced actor or director to come along and work through it with you.
 
We're open from 6.30pm to 9pm.  Cost dependent on requirement but general attendance is £5. Contact: crashtestdramauk@hotmail.co.uk for more info or find them on Facebook.

That's everything for another weekend, just to remind you that you can find us at 30 Silver Street, Reading, RG1 2ST  (If you put us in your Google or Sat Nav, we shall magically appear)
