Who we are:
Black Box to Red Carpet (B.B.R.C) is a new collaborative venture by a group of emerging actors keen to create new work. We are a mix of ages, genders, nationalities and backgrounds but with one shared passion – acting!
We wanted to be involved in the creative process from the beginning so we began a project to produce our own work. Thus began “Black Box to Red Carpet”. Our group is expanding and we hope to continue collaborating with new actors, production crew, writers and other theatre talent both amateur, professional and somewhere in between. We aim to produce a blend of original and non- original work. For our first production we have chosen a detective mystery play. This show is scheduled to run in February and will officially launch B.B.R.C Theatre Company. After February we plan to hold meetings and writing workshops and develop our own scripts for future productions.
How you can get involved and support Black Box to Red Carpet:
Right now we are in the pre-production stage and busy with rehearsals for our first performance: We are sourcing costumes, props and set design material. The money you help us raise will go towards; payment for the rights of the play, set design, costumes, venue hire, publicity of the production and director's fees. So far, we have gotten the ball rolling by putting in our own money to raise some capital but we need your support. More than financially, we hope to create a community of theatre lovers, people who will want to be a part of our collaboration, and come see or maybe even take part in our upcoming productions as either cast or crew.
For our first production we have chosen to put on the play Death in High Heels by Richard Harris.
“Behind the glamour and gossip of a 1930s fashion house, secrets and lies are rife and over the course of a curry rabbit lunch, events take a dramatic turn. Now Inspector Charlesworth and Sergeant Wyler have a murder enquiry on their hands!”
The show will run for four nights in February from the 24th – 27th in Bello Bar, Portobello . We envisage this debut production of Death in High Heels to be the first of many. We hope to see many of you there!
