The Invercargill Repertory Society has for many years held classes for young people who are interested in drama. Students from all Invercargill schools have participated and enjoyed them and found it to be a good place to meet like minded young dramatists from around Southland. This year we are planning a full length children's play called "Tinderbox" - to be staged in the second week of the July school holidays. Also planned are a series of one act plays with the aim of entering the New Zealand Theatre Federation's One Act Play Festival in June. We invite any young people who love drama to join our ranks. For further information please contact Mrs B Rodmell, Phone 215 7091 or email barbararodmell@slingshot .co.nz
