  2. Hi there …

    I’ve been desperate to get involved in theatre again and would love to know more about your group. Is it weekly sessions? How do I get involved? 🙂

    • Hi there! We are currently holding auditions for our year-end musical – have a look at our Auditions page for dates & times of auditions – hope to see you there! Once a production has been cast, we meet and rehearse at Roosevelt Park Recreation Centre (map and address on this page) on Sunday afternoons, Monday evenings and Wednesday evenings.
