Dragon Tale Theatre Group
Dragon Tale Theatre Group works with members of all ages from the local community to produce an annual pantomime. The charity provides opportunities for young people and adults to explore music, drama and dance within the community. Our group is the only organisation in Prudhoe which allows junior and adult members to work alongside one another in a team to develop life skills. We perform to approximately 1000 audience members for each show that we stage. The group seems to promote an increase in self-confidence, self-esteem and social interaction through the valuing of all skills and contributions to the group. Skills covered include performance skills, costume production, stage craft, make up and wig skills, sound and lighting production, scenery and props, music, fundraising, ticket sales and front of house. Dragon Tale Theatre Group is reliant on its hard working volunteers who fundraise throughout the year to ensure that everyone who wants to be a member of the Dragons team, can be.
As we celebrate our 20th Year, we are keen to develop our outreach. We would like to stage an additional production of a musical at Easter, rather than a pantomime. This would serve the purpose of expanding our outreach in the community, attracting new members, and allowing members to develop new types of performance skills. Staging a production is a mammoth team task. Our team consists of over 100 volunteers and they are incredible. Any funding granted would be used for production costs such as scenery, costumes and licensing.
