Volunteers needed at local playhouse
THE many volunteer-based performance organisations around the local region have enjoyed a quiet spell during the past month with many winding up their operations just before Christmas.
With plans well in hand for the new year, our choirs, bands, orchestras, theatre groups, dance academies and jazz groups are all about to launch their rehearsals for upcoming 2017 performances.
Locals who have contemplated joining any of these groups are encouraged to do so as volunteer hours are a highly valuable commodity.
Theatregoers are reminded that the annual subscriber list offered by the Bundaberg Players is filling quickly.

If paid after January 31 it will cost $80.
