The Crucible – News

We’re into the final week of rehearsals and now we’ve all had a chance to see the power that this play has as it’s coming together in form.

If you don’t know anything about the story, you can see articles in the Dorchester Life magazine as well as the Dorset Evening Echo. The story is as relevant today as it was back when it was written, guaranteed to provoke thought.

Tickets are available from Trinity stores, the box office line or online via the  link here or at the top of the page.

AGM

Dorchester Drama AGM 2017

Wednesday 23rd August at 7.30p.m.

at

Sunninghill Community Hall, Culliford Road, Dorchester.

 

To open with business and conclude with pleasure.

Please bring a plate of food to share

We’d love you to share your favourite piece with us – recite a poem, tell a joke, or perform a skit.

(enthusiaism much more important than talent)

If you want to come and meet us, this is an ideal opportunity.

Austensibility success

Your faithful author has just had a few days away after the end of the play and so here has been a bit of a delay in getting more photos etc online.

The last night at Kingston Maurwood was a complete success, completely sold out, with some very nice comments given to the production team afterwards.

The venue was spectacularly in theme with the play and huge thanks to the College who let us borrow their chairs etc. for the set. Record time for a ‘get in’ to a venue, setting lights etc  ready for curtain up on time. Many thanks as well for the guys that turned up just to help with the get out as well.

We are waiting for a few more photos, particularly of the Kingston Maurwood performance, I was too busy to even think about snapping a few shots before curtain up.

Meanwhile below is the gallery of photos we’ve gathered so far.

Austensibility

Finally, DD aims to put on three productions a year, so we’re straight into the next. Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’. A complete change of pace and genre and due for performances in November. Keep up to date here, on facebook and Twitter.

Also, date for our AGM this year is 23rd August 7:30pm at Sunninghill hall, Culliford Road. Obviously there’s going to be some committee business to do, but there’s also a chance to socialise, meet the group and find out how you can join us.

Austensibility Update

Because of availability of venues, this production will have two performances, both on the 15th July 2017.

The Matinee performance will be at 2:30pm with an evening one at 7:30pm.

There is talk of cake and tea for the afternoon one, and a bar for the evening, but this is still in the planning stages.

This is the first time we’ve actually, single handedly directed a play, and it’s surprising how soon the performance seems. At least I’ve got no lines to learn for this one, though there’s still lots to plan, staging, lighting etc.

Each new production we do attracts new members and we pleased to welcome them into the folds, even if there is no opportunity to perform this time round, it’s brilliant that they all want to help out behind the scenes as well.
