Joining and Volunteering

Maitland Repertory is an unfunded community theatre run by volunteers. It aims to entertain audiences by producing plays performed by adults, young adults and children while at the same time providing members with skills for life. The theatre has a policy of active membership - because without active members we cannot meet our aims.
