FOR the last three years it has been my great privilege to be secretary of Dynamo Youth Theatre.
Audiences in Havant and beyond know of the company’s reputation for energy, commitment and quality.
Former members frequently provide unsought testimonials; there are many successful people around, in all walks of life, who attribute much of their confidence to their early DYT experiences.
We even have two ‘second generation’ Dynamos!
Our current membership has a wonderful experience in prospect: performing at the Kings Theatre, Southsea.
Following a sell-out run at The Spring, One Pride One People is at the Kings on Wednesday, 10 April.
But in the midst of all the celebrations Dynamo are facing difficulties closer to home.
With the future of St Faith’s Hall in question, the company desperately needs to find a new, permanent base.
Anywhere in the town centre or Bedhampton would be suitable, as long as it includes a space big enough for rehearsal and a storage area. We also need somewhere a large van could park safely and load up sets.
Dynamos are a credit to their individual schools and colleges and excellent ambassadors for the borough of Havant itself.
It is such a shame this outstanding charity, which has meant so much to so many people, performers and audiences alike, should be facing such an uncertain future.
If you know of a possible venue we could rent or buy (or have for free!) or if you are able to help at all with fundraising please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
And please do come to the show at the Kings – it promises to be a night to remember.
