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?

  1. Wow…I am so impressed with Postcards and DLT’s productions, I don’t feel I can act but I would like to offer my talents, working with clay, making cookies, dancing; I’m the first one up on a dance floor. Well sometimes that works but the last time at a wedding, they played Chubby Checkers song “The Twist” and I had to show those young wiper snappers how it was done, with not only twisting but doing the Peppermint Twist….ohhh! After I pulled my meniscus, I lined danced. Nothing keeps this gal down when I hear music. Well I guess after two years of healing, nothing kept me down.
    Love what you do DLT
