Latest news from the drama group

Drama Group Oliviers

There was a very good attendance at our Drama Group meeting on Friday 22nd May. We have now decided to ‘perform’ the plays with actions (subject to the constraints of my lounge) rather than just read them, to encourage us to ‘get in character’ and to make it more enjoyable. This was certainly the case with our ‘performance’ of Alan Ayckbourn’s ‘A Cut in the Rates’, which had the whole group in stitches. They enjoyed both performing and watching this so much that I have been asked to find more of his work for a future meeting.

I have asked the group to be on the lookout for any short sketches that we could entertain you with at the Christmas Social (should we be asked).

We are starting next month’s Drama meeting (Friday 26th June) at 9am instead of 10am as several of our members are performing with the choir in the afternoon (multi talented this lot). However if this interferes with anyone’s beauty sleep, just come along at the normal time as the unmelodic ones of us can still carry on till 12 if we wish.

We currently have a regular group of 12 members, who meet at my house on the fourth Friday of the month, normally 10am – 12. This is a nice sized group, but we could accommodate a few new members, anyone interested would be very welcome. a few more men would make casting easier, so come on you budding Oliviers.

After a very interesting read of Agatha Christie’s one act play ‘The Patient’ at our March meeting, we revisited Alan Bennett’s ‘Green Forms’ at our meeting on the morning of Friday 24th April. This allowed us to look at the play in greater depth and to discuss how different members interpreted the characters and ways in which we could play the parts to greater effect. We hope to develop our acting abilities by looking at the different styles of writing of several different playwrights over the next few months.

We currently have a regular group of 12 members, who meet at my house on the fourth Friday of the month, 10am – 12. This is a nice sized group, but we could accommodate a few new members. Anyone interested would be very welcome. Our next meeting will be on Friday 22nd May.

Drama Group Update

I would like to congratulate all members of the U3A Drama group who took part in the short sketches at the Christmas social, I feel they were a great success and I hope all the audience enjoyed them.

Unfortunately due to holidays, illnesses and various other reasons only 5 of us were at the January meeting. We all agreed that rehearsing for the Christmas performance had given the group focus and hoped that possibly this year we could give some form of performance in the spring/summer. A few ideas were discussed and if any absent members have any views/ideas please bring them along to the February meeting.

The rest of the meeting was taken up reading Alan Bennett’s ‘Green Forms’. The five of us very much enjoyed getting to grips with his unique style of writing and was very pleased to be able to finish reading this one act play before the end of the session, enabling us to discover the outcome of the plot.

We currently have a regular group of 11 members, who meet at my home on the fourth Friday of the month, 10am – 12. This is a nice sized group, but we could accommodate a few new members, anyone interested would be very welcome. Our next meeting will be on Friday 27th February.
