May Day! - May 2014 e-newsletter

Daisy's App is a hit!
 Daisy Adams (aged 10) only joined IHDC in Summer 2013 and became part of the family straight away. She has taken the summer off to focus on other fun things (can't wait to see you back for Robin Hood!) including narrating a educational adventure game about Archie Potts who goes back in time to Egypt! Well done Daisy! It looks amazing!
The app is available on iPads now and there is more information on http://www.localberkshire.co.uk/news/roundup/articles/2014/04/28/99801-educational-egyptian-adventure-given-local-voice

New Members?
We are looking for new adult members (aged 20+) of all ages and abilities on and off stage. We currently have a waiting list for Children and Teenagers. This becuase we are not a school - we are a volunteer group - and in accordance with our Child Protection Policy and physical size of the stage we cannot take new Under 18 members until later this year.


Summer Shows Update
Summer Show:  'A Midsummer's Night Dream' and 'Two Weddings and a Conference"
Iver Heath New Village Hall, SL0 0DA
Wednesday 9th July - 7:30pm
Saturday 12th July - 5:00pm
Two One-Act-Plays. The Youth Group are a 35 minute version of Shakespeare's  'A Midsummer's Night Dream' whilst the Adults are performing a 1h10 comedy called  'Two Weddings and a Conference". Tickets go on sale later this month (keep an eye on Facebook for more) at £5.00 each (under 5s go free). The adult's show is rated 'PG'. The adult humour is similar to Shrek and whilst 'rude' in places it is unlikely that younger viewers will get all the jokes ;)

EXTRA REHEARSAL  - on Sunday 22nd June at Iver Heath Hall. Youth show, 2pm-4pm. Adults 4pm to 7:45pm. Thanks

The Youth show is progressing very nicely and Terry ran a workshop with them to help them project and act with their voices - which is harder than it sounds - and they are doing really well at learning their lines.

Dot Cosgrove, Director of the Adult show, has now cast the play and is even adjusting the script to make sure everyone is involved. Feedback from the first full rehearsal was excellent with people enjoying having different and new input. Make Up and Hair trials will start soon, run by Dot and Claire, whilst Dot is asking main cast to bring any costume suggestions they have/own already - especially black shirts and suits.


The poster for the adult play is below but the youngsters will be coming soon - keep an eye on Facebook!
