Our Stage Manager Jamie Byron is on the search for lost property for our next production. Can you help him?
As stage manager I am responsible for a whole host of production elements from scheduling rehearsals to working with the writers and actors to sourcing props.
Manchester Lines is our next production and I’m currently on the hunt for anything and everything. It’s not often I get to say that, but this time it’s true. Our summer set will take the shape of a lost property office and I need to fill it and fill it fast.
This is, without a doubt, the biggest props production of my career so far; I’m talking about thousands of objects. So I need your help.
I’m looking for the usual, the unusual, the needed, the wanted and the lost. From spectacles to suitcases, to crutches and toys, I’m even on the look out for a fake samurai sword! You name it – I need it! This is, without a doubt, the biggest props production of my career so far; I’m talking about thousands of objects.
So if you want to make room in your attic, send any unwanted items my way. Not only will you be adding value to our production but when our run of Manchester Lines comes to an end in July we’ll be giving all the items to the Salvation Army, so you’ll be supporting a good cause too.
If you have a model railway set or telescope gathering dust in your garage or a pile of old mobile phones under your bed do get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m based in the Zion Arts Centre (newly named Z-Arts) in Hulme and can accept your contributions from next Tue 8 May. Just drop them at reception and mark them for my attention.
Here’s the address you need:
335 Stretford Road
We’ve already received a wonderful donation from a large organisation but we still have a long way to go – so why not help us out and become part of Manchester Lines.
Thanks in advance!
