AN IPSWICH theatre is once again handing over its stage to up-and-coming talent as it welcomes back the Pulse Festival.

Pulse is designed to give new acts, groups and artists in every genre of live performance the opportunity to perform their work before an audience in the professional environment of the New Wolsey Theatre.

It hopes to expand on the success of the original festival that brought theatre, music, dance, film and poetry for a wealth of new talent to the town earlier this year.

Pulse 2002, which kicks off on May 6, promises to be bigger and better.

Festival director, Mary Swan, said: "Pulse is about giving people opportunities – to present new work, to perform in a professional space with professional facilities, to show what they can do and to develop an audience."

Demand for places on the Pulse programme is expected to be high with a 410-seat capacity auditorium and assistance from the theatre's technical and marketing departments on offer for successful applicants.

Schools and colleges in the area will also be invited to get in on the act with an opportunity to perform their own interpretation of a yet to be announced subject.

The deadline for applications to participate in Pulse 2002 is February 1 but places are limited. Anyone wanting to be part of the festival is asked to contact Mary Swan, Associate Director at the New Wolsey Theatre as soon as possible.

Contact her on 01473 295917 or by emailing mswan@wolseytheatre.co.uk
