Cloudburst is a new theatre company based in North Shields and is looking for new members to join them. Cloudburst was formed in 2011 to give those over 60 years of age the opportunity to meet with like-minded friends and write, perform and co-ordinate performances of all kinds in small, intimate venues throughout North Tyneside.
Terry White is the Chairman of Cloudburst. “We put on our debut performance in December 2011 and it was very well received by everyone,” said Terry. “Now we are looking for new members, over 60 years of age, to join this community-based project. We would welcome members who are interested in all aspects of the theatre from writing and performing to backstage work, costumes and props – there’s a job for everyone.”
Cloudburst is looking forward to performing a number of plays and sketches in the coming months and hopes to welcome new members to help out in any capacity. Venues for future performances will include libraries, sheltered accommodation, community centres and church and village halls.
“Many people have hidden talents that have not necessarily been discovered or called upon to any degree during their working life,” explained Terry. “Or, perhaps they have dabbled in theatre at some time but have never found the time or an outlet since. We hope to encourage such persons to join us. Ideas for scripts, sketches and plays come from all members and everyone is encouraged to participate in the programme planning for the group. Some of our newest members have surprised themselves as to how easily they have taken to performing in front of an audience and how much fun it is.”
