2022 Roleystone Theatre Inc. 
Due to circumstances beyond our control the Roleystone Theatre Inc. will be relocating from our temporary home of the Roleystone Hall for all of 2022.
With the Theatre rebuild not yet complete, and unlikely to be so until the end of the year, the committee has been tirelessly working on a solution for our storage and activities.
It will not be the year we had planned, however we will always do our best to meet our stated purpose: ‘To create and facilitate affordable, accessible and engaging arts experiences that enhance community well-being and liveability.’
How that will look in 2022 is yet to be fully determined, however as a resilient sector (the arts) we will work with what we have.
We hope you will continue to support us in whatever capacity you can as we face another year of change and disruption… before we finally get back into our home where we can consolidate and spread our wings once more.
Full details of this development will be discussed at our Annual General Meeting on February 15th, 2022 (7:30pm start) at the Roleystone Club.

2021 was a year of innovation and growth for our Roleystone Theatre group!
Join us for our annual 'end of year' sundowner and awards event on Friday 21/1/22 at the Roleystone Club (6 Wygonda Road, Roleystone). 
Please use the trybooking link to RSVP by 14/1/21. 
You can do barefoot bowls with us, or just attend the awards and nibbles section.

For a bit of fun we will be doing 'barefoot bowls' as a social event (optional) from 5:00pm - 6:15pm ($5 per person). Note - we will need everyone to confirm their commitment to this part of the event the week before (by 14/1/22) as the club will allocate bowls and helpers based on our numbers! For the non-bowlers.... Even if you choose not to bowl, you can sit on the sidelines and cheer the rest of us on 🙂.
From 6:30-7:30pm we will then do our awards presentation and provide nibbles (inside at the Club). 
Note - If you want to stay for dinner at the Club, after our official event, you will need to call them to book a table ahead of time (book a table for dinner at 7:30pm).
RSVP details - complete your RSVP on our trybooking event.
Please complete by 14/1/22 for barefoot bowls and/or 'just the awards and nibbles' section.

Send us your nominations for the Roley Awards and the Gold Roley award. Everyone who has been part of a show in 2021 is encouraged to reflect and send in nominations - the Roleys are for fun, funny, special or memorable moments while the Gold Roley is our club's MVP for the year. 

There are separate links for the award types. 
You can nominate as many people as you like by clicking the link and starting the online form again.

Roleystone Theatre Inc. AGM

Notice of Annual General Meeting 2022

Our Roleystone Theatre Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Tuesday 15th February at 7:30pm
. It will be held at the Roleystone Club (6 Wygonda Rd, Roleystone).

All are welcome to attend, though only financial members are eligible to vote.

There will be a light supper afterwards, a chance to chat about the theatre re-build and a door prize.

What is the AGM for?
Our AGM is where we report on 2021, vote in our 2022 committee and discuss the year to come. The AGM is a short meeting, followed by the half yearly GM.
The Agenda and Committee Nomination Form can be found in the link below.

Nominating for Committee:
Please note - ALL committee roles become vacant at the AGM and we need a vibrant and committed group to keep our community group working smoothly. So, if you are interested in joining the committee please complete the nomination form (you need to be supported by a current financial member) and return it by the due date noted on the form.

We welcome members to be involved in various management portfolios, even if they are not on the Roleystone Theatre Inc. committee of management. If any of the portfolios tickle your fancy, or you think you have the skills to really make it work, please contact us.

There are sub-committees and other roles that we encourage members to take part in without being on committee. These roles are just as important as being on the committee itself, and help the group to flourish.

A summary of our Roleystone Theatre portfolios can be found in the link at the bottom of this announcement.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to make contact with a committee member, or by emailing

If you would like to join, or renew your membership, the form is also in the link, or can be found on our website on the 'be involved' tab. Only current financial members and life members can vote at meetings.

Important for our membership to note:
As a not for profit community theatre group we are only as strong as our membership - so being an active member is how we maintain our connections.
You can be an active member by attending general meetings, coming to see performances, participating in productions on stage or behind the scenes, and sharing our news and productions with your community.
