NAKED STAGE PRODUCTIONS: A New Approach. A New Website.
ACS Member Profile
We continue to actively pursue different ways in which we can bring our Readers Theatre programming to our Surrey (and beyond) audience during the pandemic period.
Although the Board would have loved to have announced the full 2020/2021 season to our supportive audience goers, we made the decision to announce our intentions one show at a time. We made this choice so that we could be flexible in terms of our performance approach.
With that in mind, we chose to offer a pre-recorded version of our first play of the season “Murder by Default” to ticket buyers for a two-day period, October 23rd and 24th. We sold 40 tickets through Brown Paper Tickets.
We also made arrangements with Theatre in the Country (TIC) in Langley to perform the play live upcoming on November 21st. Very recently, BC COVID cases have risen and we have decided to postpone the live performance until early January 2021, even though TIC meets all safety requirements and is not cancelling any of their planned shows. Our arrangement with Theatre in the Country will allow those who wish to see a live performance the ability to do so in a safe environment.
We recently submitted our grant application to Surrey Arts Council with a request for $5000, to support our 2020-2021 season.
On November 30th, using a live web/phone platform, Naked Stage will be performing two short radio plays from” The Bickersons” series, to the Seniors Centre without Walls aka Seniors Come Share Society. This is a result of a contractual agreement between the aforementioned group, Naked Stage, and The City of Surrey. We appreciate this opportunity.
Our Christmas offering, which we have re-named “Maybe This Christmas” will be offered strictly online with free access for a period from December 21st-24th. Since no licensing and staff fees or venue rentals costs are required, we felt that offering it a no charge would allow those who might be struggling financially during this period, to enjoy some Christmas Cheer. It is a collection of poetry, scenes and song meant to inspire and give hope during this special time of year.
A final note
We’ve put considerable effort into updating our website at https://www.nspsociety.com/. It is a new address, so we encourage everyone to bookmark it and refer to it in any communications.
