Theatre

This is an exciting opportunity to join a newly formed group established in June 2021.

We are a group of theatre enthusiasts who wish to attend the theatre as a group of friends and make an occasion of it.  All members will be involved in agreeing which performances we will see and share suggestions for travel and location, although we plan to support the Shaftsbury Theatre in Dawlish whenever possible.   We aim to see a performance every two months but this will be flexible. We will consider matinee or evening performances.

We hope to attend both professional and amateur productions, opera, musicals and one man shows/talks; the list is endless.

We would also like to invite occasional speakers to talk about their careers within the performing arts.

The group will also cover topics such as back stage visits, dress rehearsals, stage craft, script reading (purely for fun) and discussions around performances seen by individual members.

Following an afternoon/evening out we will discuss our individual thoughts – good, bad, indifferent etc. at our next meeting.

For further information please see our Theatre Group News.

Group meetings are usually held monthly on the 1st Thursday (Covid-19: check here)
Time: 2pm to 4pm
Location: The Strand Lounge, Strand Centre, Dawlish
Cost: £1 towards hire of room. Tea and coffee can be purchased in the cafe.
Payment for travel and productions will be made to Dawlish & District u3a in order for the convenors to make block bookings and travel arrangements where necessary.
Convenors: Kate McCarthy & Margaret Cunningham
