Welcome to The Holt Dramatic Society. In the following pages you will find out all you need to know about the Society, so please browse and feel free to contact us with any comments as we welcome input from everyone. The present society was formed in 1966 from the ashes of the St Katherine’s Players. In 1979 we were the first amateur production company to stage an outdoor ‘Shakespeare’ event, and as the leader for this form of summer entertainment we are delighted that so many other companies have followed our early lead and now stage similar events. We perform 3 productions every year, with a biennial outdoor Shakespeare or similar production in the summer, a traditional pantomime, and an eclectic range of plays from farce to tragedy... why not look at some of our past productions by clicking the Past productions tab above.
We not only need audiences but also actors of all shapes, sizes and ages, and if treading the boards is not your style then why not consider becoming involved in the myriad roles backstage or front of house? Maybe dressing up for the evening and being the barperson or ticket collector appeals? Whether you are considering coming to our next production or becoming more actively involved in your local Society we will give you a warm and friendly welcome.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL BY CHARLES DICKENS
ADAPTED BY DEE HUGHES
Director - John Fletcher, Assistant Director - Rachel Elsy, Producer - Thérèse Underwood
Performances in the Holt village hall Thursday to Saturday 16th to 18th January
The play has now been cast, and we have over 20 actors involved in the production. Some old and some new faces will be appearing on the Holt stage. Rehearsals are now under way and everyone is excited about being part of this large production. If you want to get involved back stage or front of house please contact the producer, Thérèse Underwood via the contact us page.
Finally a special plea... Does anyone have a small desk with a high stool that would have been used by a clerk (rather like a school desk but with long legs) If so, we would love to borrow it for the production...... we promise to take good care of it.
This will be a traditional rendition of Dickens's famous ghost story suitable for all the family. Why not come and be part of a production to help spread the Spirit of Christmas into 2014?
