You may have heard about our fundraising comedy revue this November, in aid of the Ukraine Appeal, with a target sum of £000s.
The show is called Dame Edna’s Raising It For Ukraine and will be a series of comic sketches, linked by various antics from You Know Who.
We are now actively recruiting possible cast members and all manner of the backstage crew – lighting, sound, costume, make-up, props, front-of-house, stage managers, publicity, bar staff, and the rest – with a view to starting rehearsals in September, and with performances from 16th to 19th November.
This is a fun way for those who want to do something positive to help the Ukraine Appeal – by getting together with others in the community to raise funds by making others laugh. So we welcome all comers, with or without previous experience, whether onstage or backstage.
As we pull together the scripts and other material for the show, we thought we should invite all those interested in being part of it to a meeting before the summer holidays – with drinks and nibbles – in Wedmore Village Hall, to discuss our plans with everyone. All aged 8+ are welcome.
We can’t really finalise planning the show until we know the potential size of the cast and crew.
So, you are cordially invited to the meeting, which is at 5 pm on Sunday 17th July.
But don’t worry if you don’t get around to the RSVP bit – just come anyway!
All the best,
Judy and Sue (Producers)
