Open Casting!

UPDATE: Hi-de-Hi has now been cast, but there is still time to get involved with the production backstage or in other aspects of the show. Get in touch!

If you'd like to get involved in GDS' next production, Hi-de-Hi, now is the perfect time to get in touch.  We are holding open readings for this show, which promises to be great fun.  Our shows are cast through readings (we sit down and read the play out loud) which is much more relaxed and less stressful than a formal audition.  This show has a cast of 17!  That includes some small roles that might be ideal if you'd like to build your confidence.  If you wish to be considered for a part, or for a backstage role that requires you to be there during the performance (eg stage manager), you must be available between 22-28 May 2011 (and preferably the week before too).

If you would like to be on stage, or get stuck in backstage or in any aspect of the production, drop us a line or come to one of our events.

Open night: Open to all. Join us to find out more about who we are and what we do. A great introduction to the society.

First reading of Hi-de-Hi: Open reading of the play. You won't be asked to stand up and do an audition, we just read the play through, giving you a chance to see what it's all about. You can get involved or just listen.

Second reading: Another open reading of the play.

Other ways to get involved...

We also need people to volunteer to help us deliver a top quality production. We are particularly keen to hear from Graphic Designers and promotions volunteers.

Weather Update - It's warm in the Guildhall!

In case any of you were wondering, we are (snow) ploughing ahead with our performances this week. It'll take more than a dusting of snow to keep us away from the stage! Opening night is tonight, and we can't wait to share the show with you.

Remember, it's nice and warm in the Guildhall, so come and see us!
