Pantomime read-through rehearsals have started!

Posted by [email protected] on October 14, 2018 at 2:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Rehearsals are now underway for our next pantomime in the new year - The Magnificent Seven Knights of Camelot.

It's a riotus comedy that (very!) loosely follows the tale of King Arthur and his medieval Knights of the Round Table and tells how they battle against the evil witch Morgana. There's all the usual hilarious pantomime slapstick as Arthur, Merlin, Lancelot and many more mix in with the pantomime dame, Lady Mabel, a comedy duo, some rather stupid baddies and even a pantomime horse!

Keep an eye on the website for updates and ticket sales :)

Fantastic series of shows!

Well what a fantastic two weekends of shows we've just had!

Red Riding Hood proved to be hugely popular and and is certainly one of the very best pantomimes that DADS has ever produced and every show was a cracker.

Many, many thanks to all the team of friends, parents, grandparents and other volunteers who helped with the refreshments, raffle and front of house - your help was greatly appreciated and we couldn't do it without you!

Photos and screen shots will be uploaded to the site soon and look out for news of the next 80th bitrhday show coming in the late Spring :)

Three fantastic shows!

Our first weekend of three performances were a fantastic success with a roller coaster of a show with something for everyone. Full of songs, dances, jokes and comedy routines plus scenes to bring a tear to the eye there was just too much to recall here. 

Bobby Shaftoe, Sir Jasper, the Dame Malaria Merry and the comedy duo Hustle and Bustle all put in some unforgettable comedy performances and the handsome prince was as heroic as ever as he battled the big bad wolf.

If you want a truly rib-tickling afternoon or evening of fun then get in touch via our contact page now as tickets are selling fast and in the meantime see below for a couple of scenes from the show :)

Pantomime 2018 - Red Riding Hood

Posted by [email protected] on October 29, 2017 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Rehearsals are now underway for our 80th anniversary pantomime in the new year - Red Riding Hood.

It's a twist on the traditional fairytale and tells the story of how the Big Bad Wolf returns to seek revenge and features many hilarious pantomime favourites such as the comedy duo, the evil baddie, the good fairy, the handsome prince and, of course, a truly ridiculous Dame.

Keep an eye on the website for updates and ticket sales :)

Two fantastic and hilarious performances

The first night of The Haunted Through Lounge went hilariously well last night with some real laugh out loud moments.

Far too many to mention so come along tonight to see them for yourselves!

Rehearsals for our next production, the snappily titled "The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale Castle" are well under way.

The show is a comedy about a small drama group for whom nothing goes right on the night!

Performances are evening only on Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd of June.

Look out for updates on this site!
