BREAKING NEWS AT DFT

PLEASE CHECK THE DFT CLASSES PAGE FOR UPDATES ON OUR FALL 2011 CLASS SCHEDULE. REGISTER TODAY – Classes begin this coming week!

And NOW! Thank you to everyone who auditioned for a role in our Nov. 4, 5, 11, 12 production of William Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, “As You Like It.”  It is a pleasure to introduce our cast. They come from as far away as California and as close as the excellent NCCU theatre department. They range in age from teens to 50s and all the decades in between. They have performed Shakespeare professionally and they’ve never had the pleasure until now. They are funny. Bright. Brave. Creative. Warm. Witty. And pretty blatantly bawdy. In short, they fit perfectly with the characters in our play.

(We are still missing two actors in small to medium roles: Adam, an elderly servant & Amiens, a singing role. If you know someone who is interested in taking on either part, please give them my email, durhamfamilytheatre@gmail.com, and tell them to be in touch right away. We expect to complete our casting by Tuesday this week.)
