HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY TO SHERBROOKE THEATRE COMPANY
They say that life begins at 40 and we are sincerely hoping that is the case with S.T.C. Our new committee are filled with renewed vim and vigor to see in a new decade of quality productions reflecting both the contemporary writers of the day as well as the audience favourites of times gone by. As one of the smaller community theatre companies in the Melbourne metropolitan area, it is our fervent wish to keep community theatre alive and accessible to new generations of theatre goers and participants alike for the next 40 years. Would you like to become involved?????? You do not need to be an actor. Can you swing a hammer, paint a wall, pour a cup of tea, sew or have a great love for scouring op-shops for bits and pieces? There are so many ways that you can be part of a theatre company. Back stage, lighting and sound, prompting or simply just being around and part of the group. Maybe you are just a little bit curious as to how a production comes together?? Whatever your situation, it is a great way to meet people and be part of a team bringing a creative vision to life. You just never know where it may lead...........
