The World Premier of ‘Daisy & Marvin Save the Day’ opened last night in St. Faiths Hall, Havant.
As Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre approach their 35th anniversary later this year, they are staging an ambitious brand new show at St Faith’s Church Hall, Havant, this week. With the title ‘Daisy and Marvin Save the Day’ the show is a play written by Greg Mosse with music by John Gleadall. Both author and composer are local – Greg lectures at Chichester University and John is well known for teaching and composing music in Havant.
The really exciting aspect of this production is the direction of the show by the senior members of the Company and the transformation of the Church Hall. Led by sixth former Gaby Luck, the members have enhanced the script with their development of the characters, choreographed the dance and fight scenes and set the staging of the scenes under the watchful eye of Andrew Bowker, Dynamo’s Artistic Director. Andrew commented “A big part of the Dynamo experience is that our young people are given the opportunity to develop themselves by taking creative responsibilities as well as acting”.
The adult volunteers have converted the hall into a theatre with raked seats and extended the stage to provide the space for the more than 50-strong cast to showcase their dramatic talent.
Although the Saturday evening and matinee performances are sold out, some tickets are still available for the 7:30pm shows on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th. Tickets are £8, concessions £6 available online from www.dynamoyouththeatre.com or by phone on 023 9245 4244
