With no theatre of our own we have mounted productions in all sorts of venues: An empty building which now houses a restaurant, ('Barry, A Day in the Life'); two productions performed in Katikati Primary school hall, ('Gallaher' and 'Dr Joe'); a cafeteria, ('Come into the Parlour');

Two performances of ‘Pub Plays’ at the Talisman restaurant in March, which proved to be such a success we have just finished two more evenings this month. The plan behind this idea was to try and introduce the stage to people who never been to a theatre as well as introducing us to a different audience, and from the feed-back we have received we appear to have succeeded.
