Our aim is to make rehearsals fun and we hope everyone leaves with a song in their head and a smile on their face. Although the society is run to entertain both public and members, we do expect a certain level of commitment and dedication from our cast and not just on stage.
For about six months prior to a show DSP rehearse twice a week. Singing rehearsals take place on Monday evenings at Club 39, First Floor, 39, College Road, Doncaster, DN1 3JH close to bus, rail and car parks and Thursday rehearsals arranged for choreography, although this will depend on the show and the Director. As we get nearer to our performance date we add extra rehearsals on Sundays afternoons which all performers are required to attend. These will take place at a different venue. Those who have auditioned and been offered a main principal role will be needed at all rehearsals.
Evening rehearsal times are from 7.30pm – 9.30pm.
A full rehearsal schedule is published and updated and all members are notified either by email or in our Acting Members Secret Facebook group page which you can join as a member of DSP. As a matter of courtesy a member should advise the Director, Musical Director and Choreographer if they expect to miss a rehearsal. If you are unable to attend a rehearsal for which you are called it is compulsory that you let us know with as much notice as possible in case we need to reschedule other people. Attendance at rehearsals is key to performing a successful show, therefore a register of attendance of acting members during rehearsals will take place. If you regularly miss rehearsals with or without notifying us, you might be asked to leave the production.
If rehearsals, for any reason need to be amended or cancelled the membership will be notified at the previous rehearsal or receive an email or a message via our secret facebook page.
