The show may only be a few weeks away now but it feels like we’ve been working on the A-Z of Sketch for a lifetime (of course I mean that in a good way).

It may only be March, and it definitely doesn't feel like spring, but for Dunnico Theatre summer is approaching fast.

Hello! And welcome to the Dunnico Media blog. Or the Dunniblog, as we're considering calling it (considered: we won't call it that).
