Broadford resident Barry Withers received the Ted Malloy Award for Outstanding Contribution to Amateur Theatre, which recognised his involvement in community theatre over many years – in particular his contribution to Broadford Amateur Theatrical Society and Seymour Performers Workshop.

The performing season has begun for 2020 at Seymour Performers Workshop and will feature a jam-packed schedule of productions and events throughout the year.

On March 14 and 15 will be a comedy night featuring comedians Jai Cameron and Ryan Smith, hosted by David Rak and a performance by music group Oxalis Wind Quintet – at the Schoolhouse Theatre, Seymour.
