Hillcrest Futures drama group dazzles in fifth annual show
A group of talented performers with support needs from the Glee Club Drama Group performed their fifth annual production in Dundee’s Space Theatre thanks to suppport from Hillcrest Futures.
The group performed “The Sea King’s Daughter” in the city last weekend.
Julie Horan, Hillcrest Futures’ improvements coordinator, was one of those involved in organising the show.
She said: “Everyone’s had a great time! The members of the drama group really enjoyed getting into character by dressing up in their costumes and putting on a brilliant performance.
“From technical support and choreography to driving our performers to and from rehearsals, bringing the production together is very much a team effort with all of our volunteers and staff helping to deliver every aspect of the show.
“I would like to extend my thanks to everyone involved, with a special mention to Thomson Leng Musical Society for their continuing help and support.”
Joy Dunlop, Hillcrest Futures’ managing director, added: “This is the group’s fifth production since they were established in 2014, and they just keep getting better and better! Performing in front of a large audience in a theatre setting is both extremely exciting and rewarding for this group. It is fantastic to see their confidence grow each year, and they should all be extremely proud of their performance.
“Drama is one of the various activities we provide at our activities hub in Dundee to help enhance people’s lives and promote social inclusion. Other workshops we offer include drumming, ukulele, baking, day trips and arts and crafts and the sessions are available for anyone aged 16 or over with support needs.”
