Still Life opens this Wednesday and runs to Saturday, at the Rondo Theatre in Larkhall. Note the production starts at 8pm.

You can get your tickets by calling 0333 666 3366 or via the website www.ticketsource.co.uk/rondotheatre.

Tickets are selling fast so do book to avoid disappointment! See you there...

Auditions for the Homeless Panda

Our exciting new family show for Easter! Auditions are truly open to all, as there are no age or gender constraints to the roles in this devised piece. Do contact Liam if you have any questions.

Performance dates - Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 March (performance times tbc)

The Story

Xióngmāo (pronounced ‘Sha-Mow’) the Giant Panda has lost his home - where will he go?

Exploring the Min Mountains of China for a new home, Xióngmāo encounters monkeys, snakes and more - but not all of them are willing to open their doors to our lumbering hero.
Too big, too hungry, too scary! All valid reasons not to let a Giant Panda move into your neck of the jungle.
So it's up to Xióngmāo, and a couple of new friends, to convince the world that every Panda needs a home!

About the production

The Homeless Panda will be a devised piece of theatre, building on the framework of the story throughout the rehearsal process to create a brand new show.
To bring the characters to life, we'll be blending incredible puppets with live action comedy and physical theatre (amongst other mediums).
Cast members will be taking on various roles throughout the course of the show.

The Characters

• Xióngmāo the Giant Panda

• The Golden Snub Nosed Monkeys

• The Red Pandas

• Chinese Cobra

• Malayan Porcupine

The requirements

Devising theatre is a huge amount of fun but is of course, a massive challenge!

There are absolutely NO gender/age requirements, nor the need for any previous experience with puppetry or indeed children's theatre
All you will need is imagination, energy, a love of improvisation and a willingness to play...A LOT.

I hope you'll be interested in the opportunity to develop some new skills, work with a host of guest facilitators and perform to a different audience.

I'm looking to cast between 4 and 6 actors (although this is flexible). If you would like to get involved we'll be holding an audition workshop (lasting approx 1 hour) on the following dates:

Sunday 6 December at 3pm
Friday 11 December at 7.30pm

Auditions will take place at the Drama Hut on Vane Street. I'm also keen to hear from any musicians who might be interested.


If you are interested in auditioning or have any questions about the show, please don't hesitate to get in touch with Liam Wyatt at [email protected] or on 07974 211204.
