What Bryan Dick is rehearsing


Nice, talented and – of course – handsome stage/screen actor Bryan Dick is working hard!

It started with a mysterious tweet on January 25, 2016:

First day of rehearsals. Nervous as always. What a weird job I have.

So I asked him “Hey! Can I ask what are you rehearsing? Don’t worry! You do well!

No answer.

But yesterday actress Kate Sisson liked some of our tweets regarding Bryan’s hair (here, here and here) the actor liked himself :D, so I took a look to her timeline and finally I found out one play he’s going to do, a musical actually!

I was so excited that I immediately tweeted: “Oh my, here what @bryandick is rehearsing!!! Congrats!” – here the link I found on Chichester Theatre’s website: cft.org.uk/whats-on/event/half-a-sixpence

And Bryan tweeted back: “Actually I’m rehearsing this But then I’ll be rehearsing that. And that makes me a lucky sod

So Bryan will be in two shows: Hobson’s Choice at the Theatre Royal Bath 25 February – 5 March 2016, also starring Martin Shaw and Christopher Timothy, and then Half A Sixpence 14th July – 3rd September 2016 (no further cast announced, yet).

I’m glad he’s doing lot of theatre! I wish I could see them both! But I would see the musical mostly!

I should tour UK in August and catch it in Chichester, together with plays in Stratford!

It is not enough to speak, but to speak true


Very nice and interesting interview with Jack Holden. I particularly like the suggestions to the amateurs! I just can’t wait to finally see Midsummer performed on stage, and in London at the Barbican!

For the second of this blog’s seasonal specials I am thrilled to bring readers an interview with a member of the professional cast of A Play For The Nation. Jack Holden will be playing the role of Lysander, one of the four mixed up young lovers in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Jack’s love of performing started at the age of 7 with a camcorder-recorded spoof of a popular children’s BBC show entitled ‘Bloop Eater’. He was born in Tonbridge, Kent in 1990 and was educated at the Judd School after which he was awarded a place at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, graduating in 2011. Since then he has never looked back and has played in a range of productions including a couple of highly praised one man plays and a previous season with the RSC. His last stage outing was as Hastings in the Theatre Royal, Bath…
