Dear Friend and Supporter
 
What’s on next?

Our next event is a play reading evening led by Beverley and Jamie Stonehewer at Keto Royale Kafe on Wednesday 10th April 2024. This is where you can read a part and show your skills or practise them; or you can simply sit, listen, and enjoy. Play readings are relaxed and social occasions, and your opportunity to show your talent and interest in future auditions, if you wish.
The cost is 9€ for members and 11€ for non-members. This includes the room hire, the play reading and snacks/nibbles.
Bookings are open now, online via our website here.

Meet at 6.30 pm for a 7 pm curtain please.

Car parking is available on the streets in the area.
