MEMBERS OF the Deloraine Dramatic Society are busy doing a seating upgrade at the Little Theatre- Meander Valley Performing Arts Centre.

Mrs Catherine Smith, the Treasurer of the Deloraine Dramatic Society said the Society has bought 150 seats from the Princess Theatre in Launceston. They are now seeking sponsorship for these seats.

The cost is $25 per seat, which includes a plaque with the sponsors name on the back. She went on to say that so far the Society has received sponsorship for over 40 seats and for a little extra money, the seat that you sponsor can be personalised.

All the sponsors will be invited to a sponsor’s celebration when the project is completed. The Society has also been selling the old seats in the auditorium and has four rows of seats still to be sold.

Mrs Smith said that another project they have taken on this year is upgrading the dressing rooms and back stage area of the Little Theatre which will enhance the productions of the long running Youth Drama Festival and Adult Festival of One Act Plays.

The Deloraine Dramatic Society meets on the second Sunday of each month at 4.00 pm and anyone interested in the theatre are welcome to come along. The next meeting is to be held in March, 2016.

If you are interested in sponsoring seats, or buying any of the old ones, please contact Mrs Catherine Smith on mobile number 0427 509 409 for further information.
