The Who's "Tommy" UK Tour

Thursday 9th February 2017

On 20th February, Stacey starts rehearsals for a UK Tour of The Who's "Tommy". Below is one of the official press releases for the production.

Based on the iconic 1969 concept album and one of the greatest rock operas of all time, The Who’s Tommy is the multi-award winning rock opera written by Pete Townshend, reborn for a new generation.

Tommy is traumatized into a catatonic state after witnessing the murder of his mother’s lover by his father. Unable to speak, hear or see, Tommy survives an abusive childhood to become a pinball-playing wizard and an international superstar adored by thousands of fans.

Tommy has entertained audiences for more than 40 years with its story of the triumph of the human spirit. With 22 performers and musicians live onstage, its epic score includes Tommy Can You Hear Me, I’m Free, See Me, Feel Me and Pinball Wizard. A one-of-a-kind theatrical event! 

TOMMY will feature a creative use of audio description, captioning and British Sign Language interpretation which will enhance the experience for everyone. It is a New Wolsey production, and is the second touring production made in association with Ramps on the Moon – a consortium of theatres across the UK that are committed to driving change in their organisations.

'Stages of a Girls' Night In...' (BuzzFeed Commercial)

Friday 19th August 2016

Soooooo today I filmed for an online commercial for McVities and BuzzFeed, and WOW what a laugh we had!

Written by Joe Bor and directed by Richard Reid, it's a satirical look at a girls' night in, and we had SUCH a great day filming it, and a creative one too! There was a brilliant script written for the commercial, but Joe was very keen for us to have a natural input into what we were creating, so a lot of what we said came from us and our natural, imporvised responses and thoughts!

I'm SO excited to see the finished product, and it should be finished in post-production and launched sometime next month!

Eek!

Sxxx

(PS. The pic is of me and the costume designer, Nick, at the end of our day of filming! The madness had well and truly set in!)

Shrink: Season 1

Monday 8th February 2016

A message from Stacey:

"Ladies and gents, you may remember, a while ago, me telling you about a web series that I'd been a part of filming: 'SHRINK'. Well, I'm not gonna lie, I have sucked ass in terms of helping to promote it (the world of Gatsby has taken over my life!!).  So please take this as my first step to plugging the ass off of it!

It is centred around a therapist and the intertwining lives of her clients, with a primary focus on the issues surrounding mental health, not just in the clients, but also in the therapist herself. 

It's a topic that is very close to my heart, and I'm sure there are a few of you who have knowledge of mental health and the stigma attached to it.

I would be eternally grateful if you could go to our web series page on YouTube, give the eps a watch and subscribe to our channel (just click on the link below).

There are 6 eps in Season 1, each around 10-15 minutes long, and Season 2 is already in pre-production.

Please and thank you, from the bottom of my heart :)
