DICK BARTON AND THE TANGO OF TERROR
Ben Fearnside is a local artist and furniture designer. He came to us as he had an old website which combined both his artwork and furniture design and he wanted to concentrate on his artwork, working with acrylics and metals on canvas. He was holding an exhibition as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival 2017 and wanted the new website to promote this and his work beyond the festival.
We were approached by the director of this production, to production manage the show which he was directing at the New Venture Theatre, Christmas 2016. This was by far the largest of the productions that we have managed, facilitating and supporting the director to deliver his vision. Working with the musical director, voice coach and choreographer to deliver the specialist elements of the show.
Managing the requirements and schedules for each element of the show of involved shrewd planning, constant attention to detail and communication.
Beyond this we oversaw all members of cast and crew as well as the marketing and finance to help bring his vision to life. The promotional campaign included the creation of a teaser trailer which we coordinated alongside publicity on social media and with posters and flyers.
Rehearsal schedules, the needs of the actors and strict budget provided many challenges, but imagination, resourcefulness and inspiring a strong team spirit enabled us to deliver a sell out show.
