Dragon Tale Theatre Group (DTTG) has been in existence since the year 2000. The group works with a wide range of children (8yrs +), young adults and adults of all ages drawn from the local community to work on and produce an annual pantomime. The Group is active all year round with the AGM being held in February and rehearsals starting in April for an October performance each year.
A wide range of skills are covered: acting; singing; dancing; stage-craft; costume production and general wardrobe skills; make-up and wig skills; sound and lighting production; scenery and props production; music support; fund-raising; ticket sales and front of house; administration tasks and social activities.
