At the beginning of August, Offbeat Theatre had an absolute blast performing The Frog King in Bredenbury. Our unusual location required us to convert 4 rooms and a few corridors into a magical fairytale-land – which we did over the months preceding the show. The audience moved from room to room with the action – not quite ‘immersive’, but a blurring of the lines that usually separate audience from actors. A few thoughts from our lovely audience members, including notes we encouraged people to write on the walls of the ‘Frog Inn’. More posts featuring our main review and the amazing sets we created coming up soon.

The newly transformed Frog King revealed

“The Frog King – Well… I have never seen anything like it. Totally wacky and brilliantly written. The artwork is amazing and how they all remember their lines is as mysterious as the play, written by Barbara Hockley. Do go and see it. Miss it at your peril. The Cox Team and Boz are at their brilliant best.!!!” Continue Reading…

More pics from Bugsy you don’t usually get to see! A lovely ‘waitress moment’ as Bugsy and Blousey make plans.
This from the Conquest Youth Theatre’s (Bromyard) production in 2009. Wonderful daydreaming expression – one I employ myself from time to time…

Yet more Darkness

The winner of the talking sandwich prize for the most performed play from the Offbeat vaults has to be Rob Hockley’s Darkness in the Night, which is no surprise really. This moody and dark shot (shades of ‘Queen’), is from the students of Hereford 6th Form College, performing on Friday 28th April. Good luck! See you there…

As we stagger towards a short Bugsy break at Easter, I thought I’d pick a photo that isn’t of gangsters or showgirls! In mid song is Cagey Joe, with Leroy in front. Makes a change! I particularly like the ‘boxer’ exercising in the background and the thoughtful expression as Leroy wonders whether he can make it as a boxer. This production was at the Conquest Theatre, Bromyard in 2009…

Splurge Madness

This is a fantastic finale shot from St Edmunds School in Canterbury! We supplied some guns and as many costumes as we could to help out. Even if we get booked up we still have spare costumes we can gather together for you. I just love the silly string caught on camera, plus the more ‘whooshy’ splurge firing out of the guns! Fab shot.

In this version of ‘Alice’The Tweedles & Alice end up on a boat. This is a beautifully lit photo – clocks looking like stars. Fantastic. Love it. Retford Youth Theatre. Costumes by Offbeat.

The Offbeat ‘Alice’ costumes have had an outing! Retford Youth Theatre have been performing a version of ‘Alice’ (there are many) and from the few photos I’ve seen so far, it looks pretty amazing. Great set, moody lighting & I’m so chuffed that our costumes have added to the magic they have created. Well done all – this is one of the photos and I’m guessing a game of croquet has just been played …
