Hi all,

Best wishes for a happy holiday season and our sincere thanks for your loyalty and goodwill throughout the year. We look forward to 2015 and all the exciting projects lined up.


Members Evening Feedback

New director Jenny Brandt gave us a little taste of our latest production Crimes of the Heart. Set to wow audiences from 20 February 2015.

We had a lovely braai under the large trees of Su’s school grounds. We would like to thank Su Cunningham for her generosity in allowing us the space.

Next up: AGM! Date and venue TBC.
