MAD News Autumn 2008
After a fairly quiet time we are about to get back into a full programme of events for the Autumn and Winter.
The Pantomime this year is Arthur Pendragon and the Sword of Destiny, written and directed by Ingrid Burns. Performances will be held on 30/31 January 2009 and 6/7 February 2009. Auditions for the Panto are being held a bit earlier than usual so that we can start rehearsals promptly in October. The date for auditions will be 28 September from 2.00pm in Dunston Village Hall (please note different venue) with rehearsals on Sunday afternoons starting 12 October.
Early in December we have planned an exciting 'starlight' production which is based on the Nativity. Please watch out for local publicity nearer the time.
Our choir has usually met on a regular basis to learn new music and arrangements and to build up a repertoire. We have gone from strength to strength over the past couple of years, singing at the Fayre and Feast, in Pantomimes, plays and reviews, to name but a few. The choir numbers between 18 and 25 both male and female, and would welcome any new members, especially male.
We do however have a serious problem at the moment because we have no regular pianist or Musical Director. If you are willing to rise to the challenge and guide this enthusiastic group of singers, then please contact Jill Corah 01526 340045 or Gaynor Little 01526 320599. Please, please help us if you possibly can.
