What next?

Following our successful production of The Cherry Orchard, we are already looking forward to our next project.

So if you have any thoughts – or just want to find out what’s going on – come along to the open committee meeting on Monday 9 February at 18.30 in the rehearsal room. We’ll also be “debriefing” on Cherry Orchard, so come with any feedback you might want to pass on. Continue reading →
