Welcome to Weymouth Drama Club!

Auditions for ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’

The curtain raisers are holding auditions for the part of Mr Tom on Friday 15 June. The part is a widower in his 60’s who throughout the course of the play develops a caring relationship with a young evacuee.

As the part will be working with children whoever is successful in gaining the role will need to be willing to have a DBS checked carried out, be patient in the rehearsal process and encouraging of the youngsters.

Most rehearsals will be in small groups but it is a large cast piece so you will also have to be willing to work with a large group of children.

Any questions regarding the role please contact the Director, Gina Brown via the ‘contact’ page

ONE ACT PLAYS

We are still keen to support a friends evening of 1 or 2 One Act Plays before the season closes in early July. These plays could be rehearsed on Tuesday evenings. If you have a play in mind please speak to a member of committee and let us know how we can support you to get things off the ground.

The committee is still looking for a business manager

We have vacancies for a general committee posts as well as other non committee roles. Any time you can offer could make a difference and it might even be fun!!!

 

BENT – Warehouse Theatre – 11th – 14th July 2018

 

A hard hitting play about the changes to laws on homosexuality in 1930’s Germany and how, along with the intelligentsia, Jews, criminals and gypsies they were ostracised by society and rounded up to be dealt with by the authorities. It is a story of love and survival of the human spirit in the face of inhumanity by a regime that has outlawed your very existence and the play still resonates today and shows how easy it is to become second class citizens, if the law allows it, and society does nothing to stop it or even becomes complicit in its implementation. It is a subject people should be made aware of and for us all to remember how easy a society can be made to hate a particular group because they are swayed and persuaded by people in power.

There are light hearted and funny moments in the play but this is not a comedy and contains intense adult themes.
