* Tripping Through needs A LOT of extras for a scene being shot on Saturday October 17 starting at 9 AM for about 3 hours. The scene takes place at Bodden's Funeral Home on Walkers Road in Grand Cayman, and involves non-speaking extras playing people attending a celebration of life for our feisty character "Stella". It's a non-traditional service, so you don't have to wear black. Stella wouldn't have wanted that. (There will be balloons!). If able to commit, please email us now at and to get updates on the film, don't forget to like our Facebook page here.

* Thank you to Cambridge Footlights who entertained, taught and were a great bunch of young adults! Thank you to all of our sponsors: Maples, Marriott, XQs, to our local tour managers Beverly and Andrew Edgington and all of our CDS volunteers. Onward and upward! We do hope that this can become an annual or bi-annual event.

* Rehearsal schedules for The CDS Christmas Show are now up on the CDS Calendar.

The Playhouse has passed its annual inspection but work continues. The stainless steel 40' container now has new doors and will be used in the main for dtoring furniture for sets. A new exit stairway allows theatre set builders to get to the container without opening the "garage" door - just part of the workload that keeps your Prospect Playhouse ahead of most amateur theatres around the world.

* We welcome and thank Appleby who have joined CDS as a Platinum sponsor. It is through the financial assistance of our sponsors that we can put on fantastic events such as Script2Stage and provide bursaries for talented individuals who just cannot afford to pay.

*FutureLearn, the online learning centre backed by The Open University, is offering a free 4-week online course in filmmaking. The course is actually being led by University of Birmingham and starts late September. If you are interested in making short movies, follow this link.

* We are pleased to announce that we have upgraded our sound systems with the purchase of a Behringer X32 digital console and S16 stage box. Use of these items will be restricted to trained technicians only. If you want to learn to operate this advanced equipment, email and let James Gibb know.

Derek Walcott's PANTOMIME

Harry Trewe was a British song-and-dance man, now down on his luck and running a dilapidated guest house in Tobago. To try to lure tourists, he decides to tempt Jackson, a servant, to perform a Christmas panto featuring Robinson Crusoe and Man Friday. Jackson had played pan in a steel band in his home, Trinidad. He says "No" but becomes tempted by Harry's idea since he can see in the telling, a commentary on Empire and Commonwelath,  masters and servants, race and evrything his fertile imagination can drum up.

Directed by Henry Mutoo, PANTOMIME is a CNCF production in association with the University of South Florida.

See it at the Harquail on October 30th/31st 2015 or come along to Prospect Playhouse and see the final show on Sunday November 1st 2015 - 125 seats only.

Proceeds of  the Prospect Playhouse performance will in part go to the CDS Educational Scholarship Fund.
