Newsflash

* The Prospect Playhouse is undergoing maintenance to ensure that it passes its inspections for renewal of its Liquor Licence. Members and patrons will see many changes including upgraded faucets in the old restrooms. In addition, the storage of the pipes used for hanging set pieces and lighting has been moved to underneath the storage unit and the rear of the theatre is now clear.

* John Gray High School sports students in the Dolphin Academy took part in an awards event at the Prospect Playhouse on June 24th and CDS provided refreshments to the students and teachers as part of our commitment to support use of the theatre by Cayman's public schools. Also on that day, the final workshop in the series for JGHS drama students took place. During the past month, some 180 students have received an overview of staging, lighting, sounds props, and costumes from the Theatre Manager.

* Some 40 people turned up, mainly in costume, for the Rocky Horror club night which raised donations for our student support programme. The auditorium was set up to show the 1975 movie in audience participation mode. Congrats to Teri Quappe on a great club evening.

* We are implementing a new secure online ticket purchase system from Eventbrite. The new system should be tested and live in time for Cocktails and Cabaret. Want a peek? Click on their logo below and see what your friends are saying about our shows. 

* We have taken delivery of some new lights (a) an Altman Comet 410 followspot and (b) three Chauvet Intimidator Spot 150 LED moving head lights for the front of stage bar. James Butterworth and theatre manager Paul de Freitas will be setting up the new lights in time for Jekyll and Hyde.

* The current phase of work to upgrade the kitchen is complete with the east and north walls having been tiled. In addition, ceiling mounted speakers located throughout the theatre were replaced and stage sound can once again be heard in the foyer, green room, dressing rooms, and upper bar. Your committee thanks Quentin Vassell and Edie's Decor for their assistance with the tiling, and Audiophile for installing the new speakers.
