The Brentorians are Brentor’s own amateur theatrical group. It has been in existence for over 50 years, but has recently scaled new heights in presenting the talents of local people, staging successful production after successful production.
Every year for the last nine years at least one play has been performed, with the emphasis on comedy. Rehearsals, which take place over several months preceding the production, are run in a friendly and un-pressured atmosphere where the cast combine enjoyment with attainment. We have a dedicated production team who make all this possible.
Hire our stage lighting, public address system and video projector
The professional stage lighting system purchased for the Village Hall by the Brentorians with the profits from our recent productions, makes performance even more professional and certainly a lot brighter! We have also recently purchased a portable stereo public address system, with twin microphones, mixer, stands etc. A high-quality video projector suitable for use with DVD, Blu-Ray, and PCs is also available and is ideal for illustrated lectures, film club use etc.
The system is available for hire at very reasonable rates for other performances, functions and discos in the village hall and elsewhere. Contact Helen de Carles at 810412, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why not join us!
Anyone of any age who wishes to become involved will be welcomed. You don’t have to be able to act – we always need behind-the-scenes help with the set, costumes, lighting and sound effects. Front-of-house volunteers to sell tickets and help on the performance nights are also needed.
In 2010 we ventured into film-making, because our usual performance venue, Brentor Village Hall, was undergoing refurbishment. You can see the film, ‘The Visitation‘, by clicking here. DVD copies of ‘The Visitation‘ can be obtained from Colin Dawes (tel 811079), priced £2.50.
‘Toil and Trouble’, is the second and latest Brentor Film. It was produced, filmed and edited by Dom Carnell and features a vast band of local volunteer actors, including many from the Brentorians. It was premiered to much acclaim on 6th March. If you missed the chance to view it at the Village Hall’s pop-up cinema you can now see it on Youtube by clicking here.
