Thanks to the efforts of Sarah and Will, and those KDC members that approved the required constitution changes, KDC is now officially a registered charity! This is a very positive step for the group, aligning our legal status with what we actually are (“doing good nice things m’kay”), and making our future more secure.
So, welcome to KDC Theatre, registered charity num 1179970!
Autumn auditions are under-way, and we will be announcing our new casts next week.
Auditions for our fantastic autumns season of shows are this week, Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday evenings. You can audition for all the shows in a single evening, and you only need to come to one day. There is no need to prepare anything, you don’t need to pre-register, and they are free.
Oh my, it’s theatre’ing time again! Come to our season launch party on 13 September, from 7:30pm at Hoop & Grapes pub in Farringdon Street. You can grab a beer, mingle with all the nice people, chat to the directors — oh did I say Directors? Well yes I did because we’ve got a bunch of shows that we need you to be involved with!
Come theatre-types all, both KDC regulars and the new-and-shiny. We’re going to be needing a cast for all this lot, so come and show us what you got (auditions will be 17-19 September). If you’re not one of those actor-types, there are also a number of non-cast roles that we will need to fill, so come round, say hi! We are a very friendly bunch of folks and can’t wait to meet you!
