This month at the cornerHOUSE


Coming in December

oneACTS 2018 – Directors

Have you directed a play before, or have always wanted to? Then the cornerHOUSE oneACTS 2018 is waiting to hear from you.

The festival, now in its 12th year, was launched to promote original playwriting. It provides an opportunity for new directors to try their hand at a short play (between 15 and 30 minutes), and for more experienced directors to step back from larger productions and work with a small cast and minimal setting.

Auditions take place in late January and early February, and directors can begin rehearsals as soon as their cast is confirmed. The festival runs in the week beginning Monday, April 23 next year.

If you would like to direct a oneACT, please email by December 8, giving us a bit of information about your background either in front of, behind, or on the stage.

For more information about the oneACTS festival and how to take part, please go to our oneACTS 2018 homepage.

New Initiatives Grant: The cornerHOUSE has successfully applied for a New Initiatives grant from Kingston Arts to put towards a series of workshops or master classes for amateur musicians. Through the terms of the grant, professional musicians who are performing locally for Thames Concerts in Surbiton will, as part of their contract, give coaching sessions to young performers at the cornerHOUSE.

More details about the New Initiatives grant as a whole, can be found on the Your Kingston ‘New Initiatives’ Grant page of the website, under the ‘inHOUSE events tab at the top of this page or here.
