The Sound of White – Well done to all involved

Well done to everyone in the show, it was a real success.

Every picture tells a story…

…and this story is of great generosity and kindness.

Ditchling artist, Ruth Gaskill has donated the money paid for one of her paintings to Shine Theatre Trust.  The painting was bought at an auction by Simon, the owner of Cafe Murano in Hurstpierpoint High Street.  Do have a look at it next time you are enjoying a coffee in the village.

Thank you Ruth.

Waitrose shoppers support children’s inclusive theatre.

Many thanks to the shoppers in the Burgess Hill branch of Waitrose who bought ‘chips’ to support Shine Theatre Trust.  A very welcome cheque arrived during the summer holiday period.  The money will be used to help with the production costs of ‘The Sound of White”; the title of Shine Theatre Group’s Christmas 09 production.

Thank you especially to the person who nominated Shine Theatre Trust to benefit from this innovative scheme – a fantastic idea!

Global Media Charities, V-project award granted to support Shine On

Global Media Charities – V-project award granted to support Shine On ( Public )
A huge thank you to Global Media Charities and V-project who have awarded Shine Theatre Trust a second grant.
This will support “SHINE ON”; a new group especially for the ‘graduates’ of Shine Theatre Group.  The Shine On members have moved on from being part of the children’s performing group but still love to be involved in the arts.
The first two workshops were to do with singing and were so successful that the group were asked to perform at our fundraising Cream Tea on May 3rd 2009.
Prop making was the theme of the third workshop and the last one before the summer break was a drama one where the Breakfast News programmes were given the Shine On treatment.
[Click small photos above to view the galleries]
Shine On is open to anyone over the age of 21 who finds the pace of other adult drama groups too fast for them.
The monthly workshops all have a theatreical base and look at a wide range of skills and specialities that make up the whole theatre experience.
Future workshops planned for 2009 include music and movement, a visit to a working theatre to learn about lighting the stage and stage choreography.
The Shine On group will take turns to assist at Shine rehearsals and form part of the backstage crew in performances, mentored by one of the adult staff.
If you would like to be involved either as a Shine On member or workshop supporter, please get in touch.
If you are aged between 16 and 25 and would like a taste of voluntary work, please contact us to join in this fun group as a group leader.  Counts towards D of E award.
If you are involved in a theatre or have a theatrical skill you would like to share with Shine On, please get in touch.

In Memory of a loyal supporter

In Memory of a loyal supporter. ( Public )
Thank you to everyone who has shown support by making donations, instead of sending flowers, in memory of Alf Robinson, one of Shine’s most loyal followers, who sadly died in the spring.  I know that Alf would thoroughly approve of your actions and can rest assured knowing  that the money will be well spent helping the children he cared so deeply about.
