So it’s the new year and I have just attended another mentoring session in Manchester but this time I took 3 of the Dramadale group as actors. Today we worked on a specific piece of text ( from Midsummer Night’s Dream). We looked at starting points, how to understand the text without the need to read and reread it. It was a complex day and I certainly felt challenged but definitely worthwhile. The actors, Pat, Henry and Charlotte, got a lot out of the day. Once again it was good to work alongside groups from across the whole of the region.

AND….exciting news is that I have put in an application for a group of 6 Drama in the Dale actors and myself to take part in the RSC touring production of Midsummer Night’s Dream. Now waiting to hear if we are successful!

Next activity for us is the Open Event on 22nd Feb at Frosterley – hope to see all of you there.
