Due our sadly encountering a handful of people thinking that community and amateur theatre groups are for messing around and a couple of people seeking "adult" sutuations, over the years, and having recieved an enquiry of the latter nature already with regard to this production, presumably due to Romeo & Juliet being a love story, we would like to draw your attention to the information on our website, especially the members rules of conduct link. All performers, supporters, and backstage crew are required to abide by these at all times. Failure to do so may result in being dismissed from the production.
