The years are poignant with rich memories. Costumes, sets and props help the audience to suspend disbelief and enter into the story, but it is the actors who carry the heaviest weight of establishing credibility. Very few DCDA actors have had any formal training or professional acting experience, but all volunteer hundreds of hours to rehearse and learn technique so that they can bring a plot to life. To all the wonderful people who have performed with outstanding professionalism, Thank you and God bless each of you.
Please visit the show specific galleries for more great pictures by our volunteer photographers including Carol Watkins, Sebastian Saarloos and May Flood.
