Wow! What a great night. The show went off beautifully for its official opening. The Entertainment Centre was almost full and the audience were appreciative and enthusiastic – recognizing the difficulty of this musical and drawn in by the emotion and mystery of the story. Cast and crew excelled themselves and should be justifiably proud of another fine piece of community theatre.
It was also lovely to catch up with so many old friends at the opening night supper. I saw many happy reunions between theatre folk who have, at one time or another, worked together in DCS or other local theatre groups. Denise commented in her speech that an important part of involvement in theatre is the relationships that develop between people all striving to reach a common goal. I can only think back on last night’s performance and thoroughly agree!
We will be bumping in to the theatre on Saturday 4th of May. Any offers of help gratefully received. Trucks and/or utes are not essential but could be helpful! Please meet at the Wenvoe St carpark at 9am. Bump in to be followed by rehearsal at 1.00 pm.

Cast and crew have been busy over the Easter. A rehearsal has been called for Thursday night; set construction and painting is underway at the shed and costume “witches” (hubble bubble, toil and trouble) have been whipping up a welter of pinnies, garden frocks and soldiers dress uniforms.
