….for the fabulous new play Someone Like You, performed by the amdram group the DTs (supposedly Didim Thespian’s, but has morphed into several other, probably more accurate, titles hehe). The play however is a serious attempt by this group of local ex-pats to entertain the people of Didim with a first ever theatrical production outside of the usual annual pantomime. And believe me it is NOT a pantomime. It is a very entertaining story of lost loves, broken hearts and strained relationships, and how a holiday in sunny Altinkum can solve it all !! Yes I said solve, and I know it’s usually the reverse :)
The play, written and directed by local author Kym Ciftci, contains song, dance, comedy and real drama – an absolute classic mix that promises to deliver a very enjoyable evening of entertainment.
Tickets are on sale from Deli-cious Cafe and Le Figaro hairdressers in Altinkum, or you can obtain them from any member of the cast and crew, including little old me!! They are 10 TL each – a bargain – and all proceeds from ticket sales will go to a local children’s charity ‘Çocuklar Aglamasin’.
Rehearsals are going well, and today I am attending our very first rehearsal on stage at the actual venue. Hopefully we will get some technical issues sorted out today as well as positioning problems associated with rehearsing in offices and bars hehe ! Backing tracks are coming along nicely for the various songs specially written by Kym for this performance, and attached is a link to a sneak preview of one of the songs. http://soundcloud.com/clints-2/backing-track-its-time-in-pink
So come on all you theatre lovers, and those of you who aren’t but still want a good night out, buy your tickets, have a fab night out, and support a local worthy cause all in one hit !
