Anyone seeking out jobs for ex military personnel might be interested to find out more about the Combat Veteran Players, a Shakespearean theatre company supported by housing association Stoll that has been touring the UK since 2012 putting on performances of the likes of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
In fact, its first performance was of this Shakespeare classic at the Old Vic Tunnels back in March 2012, followed up by a production of Henry V in January 2013. Last year, they performed Hamlet at the Globe on the Southbank in London.
And now the company of actors is getting ready to perform Twelfth Night at the Leicester Square Theatre in London next Thursday (August 27th), so if you’re in the area it might be a really good show to catch, especially if you’re a veteran yourself. Concessions are available for students, disabled people, the over-65s and under-14s, and both military and ex-military personnel.
All members of the acting troupe are veterans that have experienced some kind of mental trauma through active service. Each of those involved have had years of training and rehearsals, and are now highly skilled and accomplished actors.
If you’d like to show your support for the Combat Veteran Players, you can easily do so via the group’s JustGiving page to help the company continue its journey into the theatrical world. They’ve set a target of £5,000 and have only raised £120 so far so if you are able to donate a little something to help them reach their goals, it would no doubt be appreciated.comments powered by Disqus
