THE SPRING 2015 PRESENTATION
Yellow Point Drama Group Serves an Appetizing Trio of
One-Act Plays for its Spring Production, April 2 to 18
Good things come in threes over three weekends as Yellow Point Drama Group (YPDG) presents a spring trilogy of one-act plays from April 2 to 18. YPDG’s triple-feature opens with:
Duet for Bear and Dog, an award-winning 10-minute play by Sybil Rosen, directed by YPDG member and first-time director Marni Hastings. A treed bear and pampered dog banter while contending with three unfortunate humans.
Judgement Call is a lighthearted play written by Frederick Stroppel and directed by well-known local actor Barrie Baker. Three umpires bat conversation around outside a spring training camp.
Dapper Dan, inspired by a 1912 tune of the same name, is written and directed by award-winning local playwright and YPDG member Brian March. Chameleon-like Dan, a porter on the Pullman Railway line in the 1930s, charms and seduces three women he meets on the train. Two musicians on board play songs that recreate the romantic music of the era.

Yellow Point Drama Group—the second oldest theatre group in BC—got its start in the early 1950s when former opera singer, leading director of drama, and elocution teacher, Anne Mossman moved to Yellow Point from Vancouver. Her enthusiasm for the dramatic arts was contagious and she soon enlisted a nucleus of Cedar and Yellow Point locals to produce YPDG’s first season comprised of three one-act plays: Waltz Time, Dear Departed, and Which Way is the Way to Boston?. The trio of plays went on to win best acting and best directed awards at various Vancouver Island drama festivals.
Fresh from its success, the amateur troupe went on to officially form Yellow Point Drama Group in 1953, and in the 60 years since, has marked a number of successful theatrical milestones, winning numerous festival awards along the way for the quality of its acting, direction, costumes and set design.
