不过,这并不只是发生...

但它是如何发生的呢?任何戏剧作品既需要天赋和团队合作。但它不只是出色的团队合作。188金宝搏网址Infobarrel专门采访了导演彼得Shimmin认为和音乐总监迈克尔·坎农给洞察这些作品是怎么走到一起。

彼得Simmin - 董事

188金宝搏网址Infobarrel:请告诉我们一些关于你的背景。

彼得:我在马恩岛具有巨大的剧场社区长大,很幸运地是许多精彩节目的一部分(包括英伦三岛的首映Les Mis!)。

我学到了很多的经验和继续学习表演,在这里我也沾我的脚趾到指挥。然后我搬到巴塞罗那一年搬到伦敦,试图“让”作为一个亲前做TIE,那么英国的哑剧之旅。

很长一段时间,我正在申请大量的就业机会采取行动,但并没有得到灵感 - 就像我失去了执行的激情。这时候我发现Sedos谁在做London Road,一个显示我真的很喜欢,我感到兴奋约再次执行。

现在我已经发现有可能在具有“正常的人”的工作,就在旁边做这样的事情的乐趣真正的享受 - 我有这么多的机会要比我当我试图“是一个亲”了。

188金宝搏网址Infobarrel:你已经在相当多的节目,包括执行Candide, FrankensteinLondon Road.什么是它想踏入导演的节目吗?

彼得:我执导我的大学表演艺术学会的音乐,Footloose,并做了自我导向的一块,这些都是课程的一部分,所以我以前的一些经验。我也认为,谁爱要知道的一切,每个人都在表演的演员的类型,知道他们所有的线条和尝试发生之前发现问题 - 我想这就是为什么我感到自然垂落指导。

我很高兴在ADOrdinary Days在2017年,和联合执导Dogfight去年但这是我第一次“单飞”的演出。然而,我有一个非常协作团队 have been so many production meetings planning everything out together and that’s been such an enjoyable part of the process (and stopped me going insane!)

Infobarrel: What inspired your direction ofHow to Succeed in Business…?

Peter: I’ve loved the show since I was a kid - the music is brilliant and it’s so funny.I think some of the satire was lost on me until I read the script properly and realised how incredibly clever and nuanced it is.It’s one of only a handful of musicals to win the Pulitzer - which is a testament to how strong the book is.

Of course,Mad Menwas a big influence - I got really into the show last year and binge watched it before pitching to Sedos - the authenticity that they went for was a real driver for me.

Also, I think the ‘60s is a fascinating time in American history -Dogfightwas set in ‘63 which is a few years after ourHow to Succeedis set, and it’s amazing to think how much change happened in that decade - from Marilyn, JFK and Vietnam to the Feminist and hippie movements of the late '60s/ early '70s - it’s a great time to explore.

Infobarrel: What skills were you looking for at the auditions?

Peter: This is a triple threat show - we needed people who could sing, dance and act.We had set songs, scenes and a routine to learn - and most people who only class themselves ‘movers’ tried the advanced dance too!The best thing to do in an audition is go for it, no matter what - make strong choices, come with ideas and show willingness to adapt.

We’ve been blessed with the cast we have who are all very experienced, and a lot are new to Sedos.I really hope this show inspires even more people to get involved in amateur theatre in London - it's fantastic.

Michael Cannon - Musical Director

Infobarrel: Please tell us a bit about your background in musical theatre.

Michael: I’ve always loved musicals, but got into MD-ing while studying at the University of Warwick.

I was the MD of productions ofCompany, Cabaret, Little Shop of Horrors, Guys and DollsSpring Awakeningfor Music Theatre Warwick - I love the huge range of shows that you get to be involved with in University Theatre!This is now my third show with Sedos having MD’dI Love You, You’re Perfect, Now ChangeThe Drowsy Chaperone, which were both really fun shows to rehearse and perform, much likeHow to Succeed.

Infobarrel: Were you looking for any specific qualities at the auditions?

Michael: Most of all, we were looking for people who made strong character choices and could make us laugh!The show relies so much on the comedy that if you don’t have funny people in it, it just falls flat.Thankfully, the people who made us laugh also had great voices.We were very lucky to get to see so many talented people at auditions.

Infobarrel: After MD-ingI Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Changedid you find there are any similarities or differences in your approachto How to Succeed in Business..?

Michael:From a musical point of view, the shows are very different.Saying that, there is a certain amount of pastiche in both of them - for example, inHow to Succeedyou have some great send ups of musical tropes, such as the college fight songGrand Old Ivy.With any song that’s a pastiche, you have to be aware that you’re poking fun at a genre, while also finding the truth of it.The other big difference is the size of the cast - there are definitely pros and cons to both, but it’s been great fun rehearsing with a really big chorus and I’ve enjoyed the fantastic sound they make together.

Infobarrel: Has there been a particular Ah-ha moment when something that seemed especially difficult suddenly came together?

Michael: The biggest Ah-ha moment for me came at the end ofCoffee Break.I’d asked the cast to do some intricate dynamic work, which they’d done fantastically, but as soon as they were on their feet, it didn’t come across.

What I didn’t realise was the choreography didn’t lend itself to what the chorus were singing and vice versa.The choreographer and I worked out a compromise and it brought out the best in the singing and the dancing.

I think that is a good example of how the show has been throughout - the whole process has felt truly collaborative and I’ve loved being a part of it.

Outstanding, Exhilarating, Extremely Memorable

Simple scenery, minimal props, excellent vocals together with superb choreography are key elements in this production.What I noticed in particular was that American accents were consistently maintained throughout the show - I think that's sometimes one of the hardest things to do.

Sedos has given us an outstanding, exhilarating, and extremely memorable production - proving once again that great teamwork creates a great show.

What's Next?

Sedos has an exciting and adventurous programme planned for the remainder of 2019 including their debut performance at the Minnack Theatre, Cornwall.
