Dorchester Drama Quiz Evening

Last Wednesday, our Chairman ran a quiz for us. A superb evening of random questions and quizzical things.

We also took the opportunity to invite Julias’ House along to present them with a cheque for money raised during ‘A Moment with Dickens’.

Team 5ers took the first prize, donating their winnings back into DD funds and the chocolates to the next committee meeting.

DD News – Upcoming events

‘A Moment with Dickens’ was a success and we’re pleased to be able to donate £150 to Julia’s House from the raffle and donations. Thanks to everyone who donated.

We’ve had a first read through for the November Production, ‘Doctor Faustus’ last night and news about auditions and casting will be around in the near future. If you’d like to be involved let us know through email or facebook etc.

We are aiming to keep a busy schedule over the summer months in order to keep as many people involved in the group as possible, but we are always on the hunt for new members both on stage and off, so anyone who may be interested in joining us, please feel free to come them along to any DD meeting.
Upcoming confirmed dates are as follows, and all will be held at Sunninghill Community centre from 19:30:

  • 01 May: Vocal techniques workshop run by Peter Gordon
  • 08 May: Play read of potential play(s) for Spring 2020 – run by Martin Stephen
  • 15 May: ‘Pub Quiz’ – run by Sean Colledge (please bring friends and family)
  • 22 May: TBC
  • 29 May: Theatre Sports workshop – run by Martin Stephen and Sean Colledge

Also during the Summer, there is a murder mystery evening planned. News following shortly.

This is it. Performance week once again.

After a great dress rehearsal on Sunday, we just have a couple of rehearsals to polish up with. Techies are a little scared as, with the ‘get in’ on the same day as the first performance, there is very little time for a proper tech rehearsal. But it’s all fine and they have a plan.

Tickets are available from the Tourist Information office, via Telephone, or the link at the top of the page. Please come and support. Director Dee has done a marvellous job of, not just linking these three pieces together, but also writing a couple of them.

Dickens Children

Dickens Children

If you didn’t get a chance to read or audition for DD’s next play, Dickens Children, there will be another chance this coming Wednesday 12th December at Sunninghill Community Hall. Even if you don’t want a part, but prefer to help out behind the scenes, this is a good chance to pop along and meet the director Dee.

Rehearsals start on the Monday 7th Jan 7:30pm at Acland Court, Wednesdays at Sunninghill.
