Coffs Harbour Amateur Theatrical Society (CHATS)

CHATS is excited to announce a theatre bootcamp for young actors, to be held at the Jetty Memorial Theatre 11-15 July. For ages 12-16, the camp is an amazing opportunity to experience rehearsing and performing in a real, working theatre as well as getting hands-on with Shakespeare. The camp will culminate with a free performance of Romeo and Juliet by the participants on the Friday evening July 15.
For more information or to book, please contact info@chats.org.au.

This royalty-free play is part of a fantastic collection of plays for kids and teens on Drama Notebook. To see more go to https://www.dramanotebook.com/plays-for-kids/

CHATS ran a successful fun-filled Musical Theatre Trivia night on June 11.
We had five tables battling it out with their knowledge of all things musical!
Our excellent Trivia MC was Anne McClenahan.
The proceeds are going towards new sound equipment needed by our backstage crews.
