Dynasty Theatre is the newly re-formed company
of Dynamo Seniors, which disbanded in 1992.
We came together to try to set up the group
as a way of continuing the Dynamo standard
of performance we all know and love. The group
was created as an outlet for ex-DYT members
to continue performing, even after university,
and also as a way to help support the current
Our aim is to put all the techniques we have
learnt at DYT into our shows and to continue
to aim for perfection. However, we have one
significant difference. We are a self-run
organisation. Any member that joins not only
performs on the stage but also must aim to
expand their knowledge of all aspects of theatre,
whether it be backstage, up in the lighting
box or front of house.
We are always looking for membership, as
we are currently only 5 members. However,
every ex-DYT member is eligible, and those
who hold the coveted "Leavers’ Certificate"
have a guaranteed all access pass. Although
the group is primarily for ex-DYT members,
we are also looking for new talent, so if
you are interested, please do enquire.
Our first performance
is in July 2010, but we want Dynasty Theatre
to continue for many years. But we need people
to continue to come back to do that. So if
you are interested, let us know,
and come and see our shows. Not only do we
need your support but we also want to show
you exactly what we are aiming to achieve.
We meet every Thursday at St. Faith’s Church
Hall, The Pallant, Havant, at 7.30pm until
The administration and membership conditions

Like Simon, Dave was a member of Dynamo from
the earliest age, and showed his enthusiasm
throughout his 7 years. Dave showed great
comedic talents, and proved this as "Joe
Vegas" in ‘Fame’. But he also showed
he could act with the best of them as "Caiaphas"
in ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, and managed to
pull off the deep voice needed for the role.

Dave has been to university and has completed
his BA Hons in Film Studies and Communication
Studies. Dave also has a passion of DJ-ing,
and can be found in local pubs and clubs raving
it up! Dave has even created special tracks
