    • Hi Itu, apologies for the late reply! I have given your email address to one of our committee members, Els de Bundel, who will make contact with you soon 🙂

  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. Please contact Wendy on 082 366 9987 or for more info.
