Welcome to the Parkes Musical and Dramatic Society's web site. From our humble beginnings in a tin shed to the wonderfully updated venue, our Society offers a Big cutural and entertaining experience in a Little Theatre setting.
The society has a wealth of talented members, aged from 4 to 80+. In recent years the society has really taken off and our membership base has tripled. We are always welcoming New Members and have a lot of families contributing to our progressing society.
