An enjoyable morning was spent today by members and prospective members of the group, in a social setting in North Harrow discussing how Jack the Ripper was taking shape and how the group could move forward with more new members. Belmont Theatre is not just about hard work and dedication. It's also a fun place to be.
We celebrated the Queens Jubilee this week by combining it with the
after show BBQ party for our last production – The Cemetary Club. Belmont is a really
sociable group and we organise a wide range of social activities, so if you are

not try us out?

rehearsal period. Audition process begins at the end of June 2012. Call us on 07917 324179.
Rob Smith joined Belmont having seen one of our productions
‘Fourplay’. He was really impressed with the company and used the time to meet
with Belmont members who were helping out with Front of House duties. He
subsequently joined and went on to act in 3-plays and direct one. So what are
you waiting for...?
