TESTIMONIALS

 

SHAYE BAUML

I have had the privilege to volunteer and perform along side Richelle and her team since the first Christmas production in 2013. As a performer you commit yourself to your role that you’ve auditioned for, this means showing up for rehearsals, practicing outside of rehearsals, and committing yourself to the company and your fellow performers. As a volunteer you have to be willing to dedicate your time and energy to ensure that everything goes off without a hitch. Over my 3 years with the company I have put in countless hours of work and effort to ensure that everything runs smoothly. But I have found that the more time you commit to the company the more you take away from the experience. Being apart of the shows put on by  Dahling Productions has not only allowed me to share my passion for performance and the arts with my community, but make lasting memories. I cannot thank Richelle and her team enough for the experiences they’ve offered me and continue offering to the community. While there is a lot of work involved with each show, the experiences and lessons you learn will make the work seem minuscule.

Volunteering as a part of all the Dahling Productions events has been such a great experience. You have the chance to meet such interesting new people and the talent you see within the community and surrounding area is phenomenal. There is nothing like the feeling of pride you get when the last show has finished and you look around and think, “Wow, I was a part of something really special. A team, a family.”

MEL VERSLUIS

‘Truly one of my favourite parts of living in Kindersley was being involved with the Christmas program led by Richelle Dahl and her team.
Don’t hesitate to get involved if you think this might be of interest to you. You will love it.’

PAULA HAUBRICH

“I have absolutely loved my experiences performing with Dahling Productions!  The time spent at practice is all worth it when we get to be a part of something that you can tell genuinely makes a difference for others. Along with that, I get the opportunity to share my time and talents with others, something I love to do.  It’s a double whammy!  We’re so very fortunate to have this creative outlet for performers, and source of entertainment for many, in our community.”
