The Marvelous Wonderettes @ Upstairs At The Gatehouse
Apr 21 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

The highly anticipated UK and European Premiere of Off-Broadway smash-hit comedy musical The Marvelous Wonderettes is being produced at Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Highgate Village, from 9 April until 12 May 2019, with Press Night on 11 April 2019 at 7.30pm.

 

Written and created by Roger Bean, the multi-award winning show opened in New York at the Waterside Theatre in 2008 to outstanding critical acclaim. It takes a cotton-candied musical trip down memory lane to the 1958 Springfield High School Prom, where we meet The Wonderettes: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. The show follows their lives and loves from Prom Night to their 10-year Reunion.

 

This musical features over thirty hit songs from the 1950s and 1960s by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Neil Sedaka, Connie Francis and Dusty Springfield, including “Stupid Cupid”, “Son of a Preacher Man”, “I Only Wanna be with You”, “Secret Love”, “Lipstick on your Collar”, “Respect”, “Rescue Me”, “Dream Lover” and “Heatwave”.

 

Casting and Creative Team to be announced. The production is produced by Joseph Hodges Entertainment.

 

Tickets are now on sale from the Box Office at Upstairs at the Gatehouse on 020 8340 3488 or online at www.upstairsatthegatehouse.com. Performances run Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm and Sunday at 4.00pm.

Too Much of a Person - Find Your Voice (Workshop @ OmVed Gardens

An interactive workshop which will give the participant one more tool to express themselves with; whether that’s how to speak with nerves, how to speak up or using the voice as a instrument that will be truly listened to.

 

Too Much of a Person is an incredible platform for womxn and non-binary people to express themselves and we want to be even louder than we were taught to be. This workshop is one part of the process.

Why?

A stronger, more empowered voice. Knowledge how to build the voice even more and definitely a smile on their face and a true sense of joy.

What?

Breathing, posture and vocal exercises, making sounds, turning sounds into singing. Singing a song together as a group.Strengthen your speaking voice, free yourself physicially (chest/throat) and mentally (blockages)!

Who?

For her young age, Nina Rosenberger boasts a big bag of musical experience and expertise. She was playing piano at 6 and was directing her first choir at the age of 19. Since those skilled beginnings Nina has continued to be prolific in her involvement with vocal performance and leadership. She has been musical director of several bands, vocal coach for private students and choirs, keyboard teacher and one-on-one music production tutor for high school students. Nina graduated with first class honors in vocals from BIMM in 2015 since which time between working with students she has been an active performer with vocal bands such as “Soundslike”. Acting as musical director/pianist and backing vocalist in several exciting projects, she also writes her own songs and performs them under the name “Anin Rose”. Her performances include O2 Shepherds Bush and touring in Germany. As well as all this, Nina has been taking her musical gift into a different context by working in mental health settings with people with disabilities and mental health challenges. A few years after graduating, she is now also back as a Vocal tutor at BIMM London.

Too Much of a Person: Toxic Shame @ OmVed Gardens
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Too Much of a Person: Toxic Shame @ OmVed Gardens

Shame can be paralysing. We often wear it like like a second skin and don’t realise it’s been imposed on us by others, primarily from childhood. We also tend to confuse shame with guilt. Ridding ourselves of toxic Shame starts with having awareness of what our personal shame triggers are, and beginning to challenge the so called “Truths” that we have swallowed whole and believe about ourself and the world: that we are too much, too needy, too weak, too angry, too stupid, too broken, too unlovable, too ugly.


Aim

  • Learn how to distinguish between healthy and chronic shame,
  • Understand how counselling can help build shame resilience,
  • Inspect where shame may have infiltrated our lives and the silence and secrecy stopped us living to our full potential
  • Notice how we react physically when our shame is triggered.

At the workshop there will be an opportunity to ask questions and to bring any issues to the table that you want to explore.

What?

  • An explanation of shame and how it impacts us
  • Demonstrations of working with shame in the therapeutic process,
  • Discussions and Q&A
  • Opportunity to meet the counsellors.

Who?

Samantha Arditti is a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BACP).

She trained in humanistic counselling at the renowned Gestalt Centre in London and prior to this worked for over 25 years as a campaigner for environmental, animal welfare and human rights organisations in the UK and also internationally.

Dennis Rice (assisting) is a Gestalt-trained counsellor, meaning he follows in a school of thought in which he encourages his clients to be more present; and so find through their being more in the “Here and Now” they function better and become more resilient to life’s challenges.
