Rehearsals will generally take place on Monday and Friday evenings from 7:30 - 10pm. Nearer to the show some weekend rehearsals will take place as well. We will always try to ensure you only attend rehearsals where your character will be needed, so you may not need to attend every single rehearsal.


We will generally hold full cast rehearsals here:


The Jubilee Community Centre, Downham Market, PE38 9AH


Other smaller group and singing rehearsals may be held at other places near to Downham.



Membership and Show Fees


DADS charges £15 for yearly membership of the society which allows you to particpate with DADS productions and events. This fee also covers you under our public liability insurance.


For 'The Wizard of Oz' we also have a seperate show levy of £25 which contributes towards the cost of your script, rehearsal music, costumes, rehearsal refreshments, etc.


(If you feel you may have problems with the fees, then please speak to our Producer, Robert Hornett, about other potential options at the readings or auditions)
