Crocus 80 Theatre and the Tommy Douglas Centre have amalgamated the two boards.
“We have talked about it quite a bit over the years, but the pandemic kind of pushed us over the edge. We had not so many volunteers and we figured we could help each other out. So yeah, after the pandemic we combined our boards and so far, it's been really good,” said President, Brittany Nightingale.
Now that restrictions have been lifted, the beloved Arts Centre is looking for volunteers to join in on the fun. Whether it’s to help ensure theatre productions are delivered to local audiences or to help with clean up and maintenance, there are lots going on at the Tommy Douglas Centre.
“All of the care for the building is just done by volunteers, so you know, cleaning the bathrooms, vacuuming, shoveling, all that stuff is done by us,” said Nightingale.
Nightingale also shared that Crocus 80 and Tommy Douglas are open to youth who are looking to provide some volunteer hours and a signed letter of confirmation would be provided for teachers.
The Centre is also available to rent for private functions, you can call Brittany Nightingale at (306)891-5359 or you can contact their Facebook page here for more details.
Crocus 80’s production ‘Money Matters’ is coming up from January 27 to 29, and the deadline to purchase tickets is January 20.
“It's been so great because we have so many new faces this time on the stage, and I think everybody will really enjoy that it's a really fun show with a fun cast and I think it will be a lot of fun.”
Tickets are available at the Weyburn Legion, Weyburn Public Library, Galaxy Greens, and Rootbound Plant Shop.
Currently, Crocus 80 members are looking to raise funds to bring back the Summer Youth Theatre Program board meetings are held once a month and the public is welcome to join.
