Some information here which you may find useful!
Many of you will remember Martin Roche as a past adjudicator for the musicals section of the full length festival and also the one act – hopefully your recollections are happy! Martin has just taken on a role as the Acquisitions Agent for the theatrical publishers Stagescripts.
Geographically he covers the GMDF area and he is available to assist your society in ways which you will struggle to find with some other publishers/rights holders. If you are looking to stage a play, musical, pantomime, take part in a one act play festival or are simply looking for repertoire which is new, Stagescripts will undoubtedly be able to assist. For Martin’s part, he can take the headache out of trawling through catalogues. Simply let him know what your casting, staging, logistics, budgetary requirements are and he will check out if Stagescripts have something to fit your needs. How simple is that?
And there’s more….Martin is also interested in new writers, new works (obviously unpublished) for any aspect of theatre repertoire. So are you an existing or aspiring writer? Have you written a piece you think has potential? Are you staging your new work imminently so that it is is available for Martin to come and watch? Have you written for the stage for years but never done anything with your scripts other than ‘in house’ productions’? Whatever you have done or would like to do, again, get in touch. We have all complained about there being nothing new to perform … well here’s your chance to change that, and writers for theatre have always complained that it is impossible to get known, be listened to … well here’s your chance to change that as well.
All you need to do is drop Martin a quick line via Facebook Messenger (Martin Paul Roche) in the first instance – how easy is that?
Whatever your angle, it costs nothing and there is nothing to lose.~ share
