Dramalites of Washington to stage production

The Dramalites of Washington is re-emerging with new energy.

The local group, which had been quiet for some time, will stage its first production in several years Aug. 10-12 and 17-19 at 661 Washington Road in Woodbury.

“The Saga of the Prospector’s Daughter, Or She Was Only a Miner’s Minor” will be presented at 8 p.m. in space the group transformed into a theater for the production.

“This is a chance for us to exercise what (the group) wants to do,” said Doug Winkel, president of the Dramalites.

Winkel, who is a retired teacher and director of dramatics at Shepaug Valley School, said just under 20 individuals from the Greater New Milford area are involved in the production.

Some of the actors are former students from his more than 30 years in the school system. Others are well known from the theater community

Planning for and staging a show requires many hands, talent and skills.

To that end, Winkel said the theater group welcomes individuals who would like to volunteer their talent in performing and/or production.

Among the areas the group seeks volunteers are acting, marketing, technology, managing the house/concessions.

Seating for the production is cabaret style, with each table having four chairs. Individual chairs are $22. A reservation for a table of four is $20 per seat. Stadium seating in the back row is available for $20.

The theater will open at 7 p.m. for pre-show dining.
