Once upon a time, there lived a pleasant, ordinary little family whose world was turned upside down when Moses was born. We all know the story of Moses and how the Lord, who was with him always, occasionally spoke with him and then pushed him in a different direction. Well, what about Miriam his sister? We now have the answer to 'What Miriam Did', although this episode ended at the triumphant passage through The Red Sea and the drowning of Pharaoh and all his charioteers.
30 odd people from around Dodworth performed as Dodworth Players, the Community Drama Project supported by Dodworth Christian Council and provided 8 Miriams ranging from a little 5 year old Eve to the more mature ladies of The Church and Chapels. We also had a little 8 year old Aaron playing the part of little Moses but no little Moses playing the part of Aaron!
As always we rely on so many supporters to help us with: scenery painting did you like the pyramids and sphinx?; dress making — how about that ALL the Miriams had the same dress; prop making weren't those bull rushes really life-like?; lighting and darkening in the right places; sound and special effects that were so realistic that you really thought that the Red Sea was parting right there in front of you; tuneful tunes played in such a marvellous way that the cast are still humming them in their sleep even now and, the best of all, a good cup of tea at half time.
Mind you if you'd have turned up a week or so before the performances you would have found a happy go lucky group of people catching up with gossip on a Sunday evening at The Methodist Church at a fellowship meeting loosely labelled rehearsal. 'Oh the Lord will sort it out' was a memorable song and tune from the show and — He certainly did!
Lovely audiences were very complimentary of all our efforts and donated £609 to our charities Action for Children and PACT.
