Join us as we mark our 60th Anniversary with six dynamic digital events celebrating Chichester Festival Theatre across the decades. Using new technology to put the history of CFT centre stage, these special events will be released over our birthday week in July giving audiences across the globe an opportunity to celebrate with us.
Do you have what it takes to be the next Laurence Olivier? Want to join our biggest company yet?
We’re inviting you all to take part in one mammoth online performance of a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream; you choose your own stage and your own costume, you are your own director!
The scene is Act V Scene 1 - the 'rude mechanicals' play of Pyramus and Thisbe. You can choose any or all of it, between lines 109 (Prologue: 'If we offend, it is with our good will') and 361 (Theseus: 'In nightly revels and new jollity').
Just send us a video of you performing your extract and we will edit them all together for a one-off screening online.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 17 June.
Some notes on making your recording:
Record from your smart phone - make sure to record in landscape orientation so we can edit them all together! If you want to record at night, you may need to find an additional light source. If your phone has night mode you can use that, but even then, night mode is not always great quality for video.
Try and keep your camera as stable as possible - use a stand or tripod if you can.
Please note we cannot accept any videos that contain music written by anyone other than you, or feature images, photos and graphics that you do not have permission to share from the creator.
By sending us your file, you give us permission to use it in connection with this event.
