The History of the Roleystone Theatre
The history of Roleystone Theatre begins in the 1930s as the Roleystone Choral and Dramatic Society. Constructed in 1922, the Roleystone Theatre has been offering a warm welcome to anyone interested in performing arts. The 1970s was its golden period when some quality performances and plays were put on.
The performances by the Roleystone Theatre Group were designed, taken into consideration the various expectations of a composite audience. The group currently produces approximately 4 – 5 shows per year, covering a wide variety of performance types. The performances are well known for the quality of the performers, sets and technical work.
1. Terry Pratchett’s Monstrous Regiment
Monstrous Regiment is a satirical comedy that features a young woman joining the Borogravian Army in search of her lost brother. She soon finds herself in company with the most artful sergeant in the army, a vampire, a troll, and Igor. The show has subtle messages about war, truth, propaganda, and the role of women in a male-dominated society, not lacking quick puns.
