Newsflash

* Congratulations to Melanie Ebanks and friends - COCKTAILS AND CABARET raised over $6,000 for the Zak Quappe Scholarship Foundation. But now we have the audience asking if this kind of show can't happen more often! Volunteers?

* Sue Howe is organising A CDS CHRISTMAS - a variety show. If you have any ideas or would like to volunteer to perform or help, please contact her.

* 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.

Author Susan Hill wrote a dark novel entitled The Woman In Black. The book was adapted into a play by Stephen Mallatratt, and is the second longest-running play in the history of the West End, after The Mousetrap. In this version, an older Kipps persuades a young actor to help him tell the story of the 'Woman in Black', hoping that this will help him to move on from those events and exorcise the ghost. The actor plays the part of the young Arthur Kipps while Kipps plays the roles of the people he met. The play adds the twist that the actress playing the Woman in Black in the recreation of the events is the real Woman in Black. The play started off as a low budget production for the new Christmas play in Scarborough. It turned out to be so successful that it arrived in Londonís West End two years later in January 1989, taking up residence at the London Fortune Theatre on 7th June that same year. Steven Mallatratt has combined the power and intensity of live theatre with a dark ghostly tale of a spine-chilling production, re-living the haunting of the eerie Eel Marsh House. The play became very popular, selling millions of tickets worldwide and terrifying the public for almost 30 years, making the experience the most petrifying of their lives. (Wikipedia)

Jekyll is a kind hearted doctor who has become obsessed with the idea of separating the bad parts of mankind from the good. We meet Lisa, Jekyll's determined fiancť, who loves him with all her heart, through the good and the bad. Hyde is born out of Jekyllís experiment. He is Jekyllís bad side; he is the dark to Jekyllís light. Hyde quickly becomes obsessed with Lucy, a Prostitute, who after one meeting falls in love with Jekyll. She settles for Hyde thinking that he is all she deserves.  The show brings us on the journey of Jekyllís obsession showing us the road to hell is indeed paved with good intentions.
