Finally, The Algarveans Experimental Theatre are able to make a long-anticipated return to the stage after an enforced hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. They open in a new performing space with a comedy, ‘Duets’, by Peter Quilter.
The Algarveans’ new location in the sports hall of the União Juventude de Sesmarias, near Carvoeiro, has a stage where the group can rehearse, perform smaller, more intimate productions, run workshops, hold social events and introduce new members – some of whom may be tread-ing the boards for the first time, and others possibly for the first time in many years. This gives members the chance to perform in a more inti-mate space to smaller audiences.
“We are delighted to have found a new home in which to perform ‘Du-ets’, where we can test the waters,” says director Jim Landis. “Tickets for the show sold out in only a few days, a response that has assured us that our audience still support us and there is a huge desire for live theatre.”
The Algarveans look forward to welcoming you to ‘The Little Theatre’ lo-cated in the União Juventude de Sesmarias. In spring 2022, they will again be performing at Lagoa’s much larger Carlos do Carmo theatre.
The Algarveans are always keen to welcome new members to get in-volved on stage or backstage. If you would like to try out for a part in a future production or help with set building, costumes or props, visit www.thealgarveans.com. No previous experience is necessary.
