Well, that was a hell-of-a-production! (Apologies, there will be a few hellish puns, gotta get them out of the system.) 5 intense weeks of hard work and effort, song and dance, heavy metal, blood, gore, rude jokes, censorship, paint, saw dust, fabric, gaffer tape, van loading and unloading, lates nights and, of course, repeatedly shouting the band’s name out loud for comedic effect. Not to mention rehearsal, production and performance! It’s been a whirlwind and truly rushed past in the blink of an eye, but what a great time we’ve all had! Dante Cabaret had sellout run of 3 nights in The Box at Fargo Village, and has been one of our most ambitious shows to date. And we’ve absolutely loved it, and had an incredible team of 45 students that have been a pleasure to work with. Their effort, their dedication, their creations are commendable and amazing, so much talent, humour, discipline and strength. What a great bunch! We’ve thoroughly enjoyed this teaching experience, and hopefully the students have taken a lot away from it! It’s had some great lessons for us too, teaching us more about big indoor shows and how we manage ourselves in the step up in […]
[smartslider3 slider=5] And just like that, Summer 2018 has come to an end. We would like to say (again!) a MASSIVE thank you to all our audiences that have managed to catch us on tour this year, whether that be Reynard the Fox, The Town Band on Bremen or the brand spanking new There Be Monsters! But before you all dive head first into your pumpkins and Halloween costumes…we would like to ask one more thing. Don’t worry, it’s not scary, we promise! Before we start our preparations for our 2019 tour and exciting projects for the winter (oooh! more about that soon) it would be absolutely wonderful if you could answer a few questions about the themes of There Be Monsters! This will help us evaluate the show but also extend our research by gathering audience perspectives. Please follow the link below to start the questionnaire. It should only take you 5mins! https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CTVFKJ6 Any information you can share with us is greatly appreciated thank you! Summer may be gone, but Autumn and Winter are bringing us new exciting projects to get stuck into. Our Autumn project starts on Monday. We will give you a clue, […]
How’s it going Fabu-followers? If you’ve been keeping tabs on our social media then you’ll know that our Summer Tour has been absolutely incredible, and Autumn has proven to be just as busy! Here’s an update on what we’ve been up to since our last blog: The Reynard Spring/Summer 2017 Tour The Reynard Spring/Summer 2017 Tour has been a very adventurous one, and we were ecstatic to hear so many great comments from our audience members! Reynard visited 18 events, with a total of 40 performances! All of which had a cracking turnout, so a HUGE HUGE HUGE THANK YOU for your everlasting support!

How’s it going all! So this week marked the first week of The Fabularium’s project with Coventry University Theatre and Professional Practice second year students in their outdoor performance module ‘New Landscapes’. For the first three weeks it’ll be just myself with course leader (and Fabularium Associate Director) Glenn Noble while Gareth is away working on another production, but then he’ll join in the mix and we can see how things take shape! We’re currently running skills sessions with 53 students and providing them with the styles, techniques and exercises to help develop and create a piece fit for high primary school age that is suitable for outdoor performance (in this context the specifics are no tech support). In smaller groups they’ve been given a story to adapt into a 5-minute scratch piece ready for next week, which is the beginning of development for the main piece that will be presented at the end of May/start of June. The show will be titled: Cautionary Tales…for children considering ill-behavior! If you’re unfamiliar with them then give it a Google, some very entertaining stories. (Such as Hoffman, Belloc, Grimm and Busch). I’ve really enjoyed my first week, they’re a good bunch and willing to work, […]
