Audition call for "Macbeth's First Murders"

PLEASE NOTE: audition on Thursday 14 January is cancelled! Sunday 17 January still on.

All existing and prospective AATG members are warmly invited to attend the auditions for "Macbeth’s First Murders". This is an adaptation of Acts I and II of Shakespeare’s play and will be staged in the Kunsthut in The Hague, on Friday 16, Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 April 2021.

If we can’t use this theatre due to Covid-19 restrictions, we’ll arrange private performances in the AATG Warehouse before invited guests. In any case, the performance will be recorded.

"Macbeth’s First Murders" will also be the AATG’s main stage entry at FEATS (Festival of European Anglophone Theatre Societies) in Brussels on 13-16 May 2021. 

The roles that Director John Kearey is seeking to cast are:
• Macbeth (male)
• Lady Macbeth (female)

• Narrator (male/female)

• King Duncan (male)

• Banquo (male/female)

• Macduff (male/female)

• Lennox (male/female)

Age bracket for all roles: 20-65 y.o.

This production will feature an exciting and innovative staging concept whereby all actors will be socially distanced from one another at all times.
John looks forward to greeting you at the socially distanced audition in the AATG Warehouse (De Star 5, Leidschendam) on Sunday 17 January at 14:00.
contact AATG Productions if you’d like to attend the auditions, or if you’d prefer to audition online via videocall or if you’d like to have further information.

The AATG's First Short Film Festival

The AATG Film Festival Première Event and the Awards Ceremony took place on 9 and 10 January! We got to see what we have all been up to during this Covid period, but you will also hopefully have gotten inspired to get involved for the next Film Festival that is tentatively planned for 4-5 September 2021 and every September thereafter. This will give all of us something fun to do in between pantos!

January play reading

Look forward to our first play reading of the new year on 28 January, hosted by Catrin Cannock. More details coming soon!

Merry Christmas from the AATG!

The AATG would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! We hope you all stay safe and happy, and wish you the best 2021 possible.

In celebration, we've put together a special holiday video with help from our members, and a few characters who seemed to have escaped the theatre. Enjoy, and we'll see you all... next year!

Garden and balcony furniture

Having been deprived of the fun and excitement of building a pantomime set, the AATG’s Warehouse team is offering to make high-quality outdoor furniture (tables, benches, planters etc.) to customers’ specifications, as follows:

  • First decide what you’d like to have. You could get basic ideas about such furniture from websites such as Hornbach.
  • You would then decide on the dimensions, material and colour scheme that you would like. 
  • Once you have decided on the basic design, you would then contact Peter Comley to discuss how this furniture could then be made to your specifications. 

The cost would amount to the cost of materials plus a modest contribution towards AATG Warehouse expenses. So you’d not only get genuinely handmade outdoor furniture, you’d also be helping the AATG to weather the storm of the corona crisis!
