Launched in September 2016, Dorchester Performance Arts will be performing their first musical production at the Ballroom, Herrison Hall, Charlton Down, Dorchester on Sunday April 23rd 6:00 p.m.

‘OLIVIA’ based loosely on the Dickens novel ‘Oliver Twist’, tells the story of an orphan girl living in Victorian London.  Searching to discover her true identity, Olivia’s adventures see her meeting various characters from the Victorian era – Scrooge, Fagin & Dodger, Eliza Doolittle, Holmes & Watson, George Bernard Shaw and Gilbert & Sullivan.

The show will be performed by a cast of 40 children, who have been working towards this performance since February. Dorchester Performance Arts meet every Monday evening 6:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. at the Ballroom, Herrison Hall in Charlton Down. The aim of the group is to provide an affordable opportunity for children to develop self confidence through the development of performance skills in singing, acting and dancing. DPA is led by Franz & Linda Atkinson and Katy Lyons who all have extensive experience working with children and also as performers.

We would invite you to our performance on Sunday April 23rd to see the work of Dorchester Performance Arts. Tickets are available – Adults £4 Children FREE.

The group has grown in size since its launch in September, but we would welcome enquiries from anyone interested in joining us  for the summer term when we will be showcasing songs from musicals including ‘Hairspray’, ‘Annie’ and ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ Places are limited but we would welcome more boys in particular and children aged 10 and above for the coming term.

Tickets for the show are available from Franz & Linda 01305 260383 / 07929453960 or by email franz_linda@hotmail.co.uk.
