EXPECT memories, music and laughter in a show which celebrates 60 years of entertaining local audiences.
Dalton St Paul’s Amateur Dramatic Society marks its golden jubilee with a show called Re-view which they say will do what it says – and review many of the company’s previous shows.
The show opens at the church hall on Friday, that’s April 16 with a repeat performance the following night. Both shows are at 7.30pm.
As a way of saying thank you for their support, the company has put together a show of songs, sketches and routines requested from its previous productions.
What that means is that the show will include war-time songs, the familiar sound of Abba, music from the wild West, songs from the shows and even a visit to Ascot.
That choice reflects the fact that this, like all previous Dalton St Paul’s shows, will involve people of all ages. These are family shows so the programme reflects that.
“Some of the songs will be familiar, original performers (if slightly older), however new faces have joined what it is hoped will be a happy show, full of fond memories,” said the society’s Jean Moxon.
Joining the regulars for the first time will be soloists Julie Daniels and Gary Pollard while another newcomer, Ann Wilson will make her debut as part of the chorus.
The show will be co-produced by Jean Beaumont, Molly Metcalfe and Judith Holden. Dorothy Newlove is the musical director and Jean Delaney is the pianist.
The group was founded by church members in 1949 and staged its first production, The Ghost Train, in March 1950.
