C A D S COCKERMOUTH AMATEUR DRAMATICS SOCIETY NEWS FROM CADS


As Cockermouth Amateur Dramatics Society (CADS) takes its summer break, its new season is firmly in the minds of its members and friends.


If you were among those that attended the ‘New Season Launch’ event, you will know that four wonderful new productions are already lined up for 2018 – 19, commencing with Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale in November. Auditions and casting have already taken place and for the annual Pantomime in January. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves promises to deliver perhaps the most spectacular CADS panto to date. New Season leaflets are available at various venues around town with further events, productions, workshops, trips and socials to be added.


There was standing room only, as CADS joined in the fun at Cockermouth Live!. For the first time in its history, drama featured in the annual event, as CADS performed excerpts from its recent production of The Bench. CADS undertook this newest addition to the festivities in co-operation with the U3A Drama group, which showcased some original sketches written by its members. The collaboration was especially poignant, as both groups boasted as a founder member the amazing Liz Fitton, who sadly died two years ago after a short illness.


Willy Porter has been turning first-time listeners into die-hard fans for more than two decades. Willy blurs the line between indie-folk and rock with his searing signature finger-picking guitar sound, absorbing lyrics and playful, high-energy live performance style. He has shared world stages with musicians Jeff Beck, Tori Amos and Paul Simon, carving out a successful solo career as an artist who makes music that resonates long after the last guitar chord fades.


His music is engaging, original, occasionally haunting and between songs he tells hilarious stories.


Profits will be donated to Amos Trust, who are a small, creative human rights charity that challenges injustice, builds involvement and creates change. They work with vibrant grassroots partners for justice and hope for the forgotten. Their key partners are based in Palestine, Israel, India, Nicaragua, South Africa, Burundi and beyond.

SEASONAL STEPS Stage Combat!


The final event of the season was a workshop led by professional actor and accomplished tutor, Toby Gaffney. A group with widely-ranging ages and abilities joined Toby to learn about aspects of Stage Combat. CADS has offered a series of professionally-led workshops throughout the past year and would like to thank Cumbria County Council for part-funding these well-received events and also the workshop facilitators, all of whom generously shared their knowledge to enable CADS Members, and non-members, the opportunity to learn and develop their drama skills.

Cockermouth Scottish Country Dancers had a smashing summer of events. Starting with Cockermouth Live! we welcomed members of the public to watch some demonstration dances in Christ Church rooms. Many of them joined in with the ceilidh dancing, clearly enjoying it and promising to join us in September.


The annual trip to the White Rose Festival, Leeds was attended by dancers who had practised for several weeks. The afternoon was very hot, so we danced outside, which was lovely. We were encouraged to wear sunhats and glasses and drink lots of water and were impressed by the ‘no plastic’ policy of the Gateways School. There was an excellent dance in the evening and we sat outside in the interval to cool our feet!


Our summer dance held at Loweswater Village Hall was similarly well-attended,


surrounded by beautiful scenery on a balmy evening. During the interval, the dancers enjoyed strawberries and cream with a glass of wine.


We have a varied programme of events and encourage anyone who would like to give it a try.


We resume our classes on Thursday 6th September at 7.00pm in Lorton Street Methodist Church Hall for adults and Monday 17th September at 5.00pm for children.
