Following our recent open meeting, it has been decided with regret to raise our Workshop fees to £3 waged and £1.50 unwaged with immediate effect. This is due to the fact that at the previous level the cost of hiring the room on Hope Street was proving a drain on our finances, a drain which will be significantly alleviated at the new price.
The good news is that we are also introducing a Membership scheme open to all. Becoming a General Member will entitle you to a £1 reduction on the entry price for all Network events, both productions and events such as quiz nights and the Christmas Revue. The cost of membership is set at £5, and will come with a membership card.
As anyone who has been in past productions will be aware, being cast in one of our plays means that you have to pay “subs” to make sure we are insured. This has now metamorphosed into becoming a Performing Member, which is essentially the same as being a General Member but with the added bonus of having been on the stage! The cost of becoming a Performing Member is now set at £15 waged and £7.50 unwaged. Again, this is something we’ve been very reluctant to do but which rising costs have forced upon us.
Both forms of membership will last for a year. If you would like to become a General Member contact us via email@example.com. However, there is no obligation to do so and it is worth stressing that Workshops remain open to all!
Tomorrow (22nd November 2013) from 2pm, Faye Christiansen will be speaking to James Kay at Vintage Radio about Network, the group’s history, present and future as well as much more.
You can listen along live here.
So… having only just recovered from The Abandoned, here’s the next thing to get involved in for all you lovely Networkians out there…
The Liverpool Network Theatre Group Revue Night is going to on Tuesday 10th December at the Pilgrim Pub, Pilgrim Street, Liverpool.
We’re looking for people to take part in this year’s show. You can bring anything to the table from sketches, monologues and plays, to stand-up, poems, and music.
It’s a fun-filled night and there will be something for everyone!
If you would like to take part in the Revue could you let Scott know by the third or second week in November. You can message him on our Facebook account or send him an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure you get to Liverpool Network Theatre’s next performance:
Tuesday 29th October, Church of St Luke (The Bombed Out Church)*
7.30pm and 8.30pm
Tickets: £5 and £3 (conc)
Tickets can be purchased on the door or from News from Nowhere on Bold Street.
A village’s pets vanish overnight. A dead body refuses to stay silent. A woman is haunted by an evil unseen. What happens when the gods are looking elsewhere and those who should not be are left to fend for themselves? Liverpool Network Theatre Group in association with Urban Strawberry Lunch proudly presents three tales of the macabre, the strange and the terrifying. Mwhahaha and all that sort of thing.
Fast becoming as much a Network tradition as the Summer play and Eastenders Zip Zap Boing, the Hallow…een show at St Luke’s is now in its third year and this one is by far our most ambitious!
For one night only. Come join us… if you dare! (And even if you don’t dare, please come anyway, we’ll make sure there’s someone there to hold your hand.)
