We have a good mix of members, aged from 17 to over 80, some of whom have been with the Society for decades and some for weeks. We put on a variety of plays throughout the year ranging from comedies, through costume dramas to modern day thrillers, so there's something for everyone. We perform three full-length plays, in February, May and November, and an evening of one act plays in July.

With the exception of a summer and Christmas break, the Society meets every Tuesday at 7:30pm at The Studio Theatre for a variety of activities including play reading, technical workshops and preparing for upcoming productions.
