Our next meeting is Wednesday 27th January at 7.30pm, and will be delivered to all our members remotely.
Creating a musical tribute using Zoom, GarageBand and iMovie
In 2016, Gallery Players staged a production of the musical ‘Spring Awakening’ at the New Wolsey Theatre in Ipswich. The themes of the musical resonate today, especially the final number, 'The Song Of Purple Summer’, which looks forward to a time of hope and change after repression.
The director of the production, Steve Wooldridge (who is also a member of Suffolk Mac User Group) felt it timely to reunite his talented cast and invite them to reflect on what lockdown has meant to them. With the help of fellow Gallery Players steering group member and film-maker, Wade Ablitt, and the show’s musical director, Richard Healey, the company members performed in the safety of their own homes, and created a film of 'The Song Of Purple Summer’ that pushed Zoom, GarageBand and iMovie to their limits.
Join us on 27th January to see their fabulous work, and enjoy the company of Steve and Wade as they discuss and illustrate the process of recording and creating this moving tribute to hope and the future.
