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.

Of course we also need actors, and auditions are held regularly. If you are not an actor but still wish to be involved, there are numerous areas where you can help and have fun.
