Main Theatre Re-Opened
After many years of hard work, fundraising and extensive planning the refurbishment of the Main Theatre has reached a stage where it can be re-opened. On October 19th we had a Grand Re-Opening of the Main Theatre Event to celebrate this momentous achievement. It was a very enjoyable evening with excerpts from a couple of plays that have significance to the theatre, along with reminiscences from some members who recalled their experiences of performing in the space. One of these was Len Goldman, who had also been a pupil at the school - the original use of the NVT building - he told of his school experiences there and how he developed his love of drama. Len was presented with a Life Membership at the event.
