Utter Nonsense

This collection of short videos are for entertainment only. No cows were harmed in their making – they were udderly against it. DCT however, is utterly interested in your comments.

How to have fun without cows

If Covid-19 isolation has taught me anything it’s that I have a very immature mind that produces mountains of utter nonsense. I am a very sharing person so here you go and don’t say I never gave you anything (including a headache):

A special thanks to Ken Leavoy who pointed me to this video editor. I’ve been having fun with it. Thanks Ken!

This first set of videos come from a series entitle Approximately 6 seconds of Obvious Advice”.

Good advice!
From someone with a vast amount of experience
Did you know Shrews are just shrews – not rodents at all
My vacuum works great but my vocabulary sometimes needs help
It’s barely worth thinking about

This next set of videos come from a series entitled “Approximately 6 seconds of Pointless Pondering” and boy is it!

Peter Piper’s love life – don’t worry about it
I just can’t wait that long for a pony tail
My math was never that good.
There is no good answer for this
An obviously rhetorical question….

Welcome to our introductory Videoblog entitled “How Did We Get Here”

This short film is our maiden voyage into a ocean of theatrical entertainment and information. We hope you enjoy it and continue to follow us on this journey. Be sure to watch to the very end – there’s something to learn and laugh about there too. As always, we would love your feedback!

To gain audience interest before starting the series we made two promotional videos and we really hope you enjoy them. We certainly enjoyed making them. Let’s grow together in this playful adventure.

Promotional video one – Thank You Dunnville!
Promotional Video two – What do Theatrical People do when they have no stage?

If you are interested in becoming part of our Video team please fill out this form to say “I want to be involved” on the Become part of DCT page of our new website. We will welcome you!

We wish to thank The Ontario Trillium Foundation’s Resilient Communities Fund for making this possible.

Community Involvement

Marching our banner down Broad street for the Mudcat Festival

DCT enjoys the community in which we live and because of that we work to be part of it. We strive to be part of our community and want to be involved with other organizations and recognize community events.

In the first year of Covid-19 restrictions we could not launch a production and started discussing the possibilities of doing Videoblogs. We put our corporation’s house in order and submitted an OTF grant under the Resilient Communities Fund. Then we sat back to wait. We’re not very good at waiting so we decided to give 1 small video a try just to say “Happy Holidays”. We missed our fans and families and just wanted to convey something happy and hopeful to the community. We were pretty happy with this video and in many ways it spurred us on with its whisperings of “Videoblog, Videoblog, wherefore art thou Videoblog?”

Happy Holidays from DCT

Nurses week arrived after we had news from the Ontario Trillium Fund that we had been awarded a grant but at that point it was still hush hush. We could not move forward with any plans until we got the go ahead. We have a great nurse on our board – Kathryn Stengel– and a another great nurse –Loretta Ward – who volunteers to photograph us, so we definitely appreciate nurses and wanted to add our shout out. Jordan dug his equipment out and made another short video from DCT.

Thank you Nurses!

Upcoming Events

What should you keep your eyes out for at DCT? – Not a good scrub that’s for sure.

You might give your eyes a good cleaning while they’re out but -WARNING – they’re really hard to get back in and if you mix the right and left balls – well then – you’re in for a mess of somethin’.

But here is something that’s coming up that can’t hurt you. It’s good
a series we hope you enjoy.
