After a successful review last November, the Drama workshop group will be giving their second performance on Friday Sept 6th at 11 am in EVA Granville Street (home of the coffee mornings). this time we will be doing a short play about a New but Incompetent Radio Station written by our Writing Groups. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible and hope that you will like it.

This group meets on the second and fourth Monday of the month at E.V.A. Granville Centre, Long Eaton (Buxton Room) 2 – 4pm.

Dramatic Beginnings

Kulwant suggested a Drama Group
And lots of people concurred.
Then Hilary sent out a message,
So all U3A members heard.

We gathered for a first meeting
And to start out making some plans.
A few leader positions were needed –
No-one offered by showing of hands!

“Let’s get this ball rolling”, I thought
As I lifted my hand in the air,
And suddenly I became Treasurer
-And Co-Leader – What happened there?

Helen 1 soon sorted a venue
(We meet in a central Church Hall)
Helen 2 brought some improvisations –
Something to try for us all.
And then we began to make a plan
Of all that we could do –
Write sketches, read Poetry, stand up and act -
Combine it in a Revue?

We added some brave Lion Taming
(The lion was heard, never seen)
Some costumes, some music, a Prompt and a Dresser –
Our group members all got quite keen

And finally came the performance
With nerves stretched tight as a drum.
The audience laughed, clapped and cheered us.
It seemed as if they too had fun.

A year has gone by since we started
And we’ve gained some new members as well.
New improvisations, sketch writing
Poem reading and stories to tell.

Last Monday a new member asked us,
As we gathered in January rain.
“What are our plans for this season?”
We answered…

“Let’s do it again!!!”
