Theatre Club Start Friends Group

The Theatre Club's recent production of 'Murder in Company'

Fans of St Mary’s Theatre Club can now stay up-to-date with news about productions and receive discount tickets for shows.

The islands’ amateur dramatics group has launched a Friends group, to boost the club’s income. Supporters pay £5 annually to receive two newsletters a year and get a £1 discount on show admission.

It’s not been widely promoted yet and a feature in the One Act Play Festival programme has brought just one sign-up so far, but Club Secretary Jenny Byers says she’s hopeful that many more people will join.

Jenny says the club receives a lot of correspondence from visitors who enjoy the performances and she hopes the friends scheme will tap into a fan base, many of whom have been coming for years and time their visits to coincide with performances.

Anyone wanting to join should email Jenny Byers at jennyandbill@islandhoppers.demon.co.uk
