No drama group existed in the local Strathmore area at the time S.T.A.G., an unsubsidised amateur theatre company, was formed in 1954 – 1955.
The inaugural first meeting of twelve members was held in the home of Mary & Ron Little of Bruce St – two members of which (Ivy Walker & Mary Little) remain actively involved.
The site of its initial productions (And This Was Odd, Poison Pen & Here We Come Gathering) was at the St. John’s Presbyterian Church Hall in Essendon, until the permanent purpose-built facility was organised through the Strathmore Community Association.
STAG’s aim – then as it is now – is to bring together people of similar interests & to provide a true community theatre where members can share their talents & abilities in diverse fields of performance.
Over the years we have continued to present quality productions for the enjoyment of all & thank our patrons, audiences, players & crew for their ongoing support & dedication.
