DRAMA WORKSHOP AND PERFORMANCE GROUP

It has been nearly 2 years since the Drama group held its first meeting in April 2014. How time flies! During that time we have staged three productions. In December, 2014 we performed a number of sketches to commemorate the start of WW1. Last year we performed an excerpt from Midsummer Night’s Dream as part of a special entertainment afternoon in March. Our third performance was at the Christmas show in December 2015, when we staged an adaptation of The Emperor’s New Clothes. We are a fun loving group with 14 full time members, some of whom have previous performance experience, while others had never performed before joining the group.

In the future, the group would like to perform to a wider audience and increase our membership, so that we can stage 2 short performances a year with half the group acting in one show, while the other half supports backstage and vice versa. In addition, this year we will continue to develop our acting and improvisational skills in workshops. Another exciting development this year will be the group’s bid for sponsorship to help towards performance costs as we offer to perform to local groups and establishments, and to finance the cost of purchasing head microphones. Watch this space!

Our group meets twice a month on Friday afternoons from 2 until 4 at Burton Lazars’ Village Hall. However, when in rehearsal for a production we meet more often. If anyone is interested in joining our group to perform or help backstage, please contact Sue Wright. Alternatively, just come and have a chat to some of our members at the Meet the Groups meeting on 21 January.
