The genesis of the idea for Delano Dramatic Company has its roots in Delano history. The City’s own website notes this history: “In September 1890, work began to build a stage upstairs in the hall so theatrical performances could be held. The next year the village purchased stage scenery to equip the stage. A year later dressing rooms were added on each side of the stage. Also, in 1890 the Delano Dramatic Company offered to pay $100 toward $250 needed for a piano… ”
Based on community feedback received following a 2018 production, the idea of establishing a local theatre in Delano was raised in order to encourage people from the Delano area to get even more involved. Both Joe and Jack have strong professional experience in theatre, both prior to and as leaders of the Delano Public Schools drama department, and they have led the formation of the Delano Dramatic Company.
Many talented actors, musicians, and people with various theatre skills such as costuming call Delano home. We have reached out to several people and they have indicated an interest in being involved in this newly formed theatre company. These people have experience in music direction (vocal and instrumental), choreography, artistic direction of musicals, costuming, and set building. We are confident the community will respond enthusiastically to local opportunities provided by the Delano Dramatic Company.
