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. So if you love the thought of being on stage (or behind) and are looking for a fun way to make new friends, come along and join in - no talent needed - just the love of the thrill of being involved in live theatre.
