It is a great time to join us

This is an invite for all those that might be interested in being involved in the upcoming DC play, a pantomime entitled "The Wicked Witches of OZ". This includes acting, production/backstage roles and roles for children.

This meeting will take place at the DC studio on Taranaki St at 7:30pm on Mon 24-Aug.

We hope to be finished before 9:30pm

A decision will be made on Monday night about performance dates.  They will be early December either Thursday to Sunday on the 3rd to 6th or the 10th to 13th December.  We could possibly perform both weekends, but that is unlikely given how busy that time of year is.

If you are interested in being involved please come along, even if you attended the read through last Monday. I would like to meet you as it will help me with fitting the play together. We will read through the play and then discuss roles available.

If you are a parent with children that may be interested in participating, please come along with or without your children.

We will also ask you to write down your contact details and what roles you might be interested in.

If you can't make it to the first rehearsal please let Chris know and also let her know what role you might be interested in.

At the end of this meeting if there is time I would like to talk to anyone with production planning knowledge or interest.

The Thursday after this meeting, 27-Aug, (To be confirmed) will be a production planning meeting where we will go over things like costume, sound, lighting, set, etc.

My name is Vince Jennings and I will be directing the play.

The play is a spin on the wizard of Oz set in Australia.

The details are below and it is possible to access an online version of the script if you wish to get a feel for the content.  There will be changes though including incorporating parts for children.
