Dorchester Amateur Dramatics Society (DADS) is based in Oxfordshire and have been performing for 34 years. They normally stage two productions a year one of which is often a musical. Past productions include amdram.co.uk’s very own Derek Webb‘s Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders and Raymond Hopkins‘ play Love Begins at 50.
Their auditions and other activities are open to all, if you are interested in acting, directing, helping with scenery and props, backstage work, lighting, sound, production or any other aspect of amateur theatre then they would love to meet you.
All ages and levels of experience are invited to come along to see them rehearse or attend an occasional play-reading evening. First time actors and crew are very welcome.
DADS are performing Robert Scott’s fast-paced comedy According To Rumour in November 2017.
When Carter Sutton wakes on his sofa with no memory of the night before, he doesn’t realise that things are going to get much worse! He’s soon reeling from discovering a very large sum of money in his fridge and a stream of unexpected, and unwanted visitors. But this is only the start. This will be 24 hours that none of the participants will ever forget.
Written by award winning playwright, Robert Scott, According To Rumour provides all the classic ingredients that you would expect from a farce: mayhem, misunderstandings, hilarity and a whole lot of confusion. First published in 2015, According To Rumour is fast becoming an international success, the play has already been performed as far afield as Australia.
