AUGUST 2018

THE DELORAINE Dramatic Society (DDS) is hosting its inaugural Vaudeville Show on the 18th August. An invitation is extended to come along and enjoy a family friendly evening showcasing a breadth of local talent and specially commissioned pieces for the event.

The DDS plans to host an annual event each winter, presenting an eclectic array of theatre, performance, puppetry, music, dance, comedy, poetry, opera & acrobatics coupled with light refreshments and a warming supper made from local produce.

The rejuvenated volunteer committee aims to grow its annual programme and develop its relationships within and beyond the local community. It seeks to promote and share a passion for drama, nurture youth theatre and support homegrown talents old and new.

Members of the DDS committee hail from a diverse array of professional theatre, music, literature, broadcasting and arts backgrounds and are nationally and internationally recognised for their technical skills and artistic merit.

Based in the Little Theatre, in Meander Valley’s Art Centre, Deloraine, they plan to provide onsite mentoring and offer opportunities for any young (or mature aged) individuals wishing to gain new skills and experience within a performing arts context.

The upcoming Vaudeville Show commences at 6.00pm with supper served by 6:30pm. Pre-purchasing tickets is recommended as seating is capped. Tickets can be purchased directly from Seppenfelts (Emu Bay Rd, Deloraine) or via www.trybooking. com/XCLD.

For all DDS enquiries please email delorainedramaticsocietyPR@gmail.com or phone Suz 0409 695 200.
