History

 

The group was formed in 1978 at Mooroolbark high school by Arline and Tommy Myers. The first show was a revue titled 'Carry on Mooroolbark'. The show was created by its cast of around 35 people, only two of which having had any previous stage experience. 

 

From these humble beginnigs, the group carried on, producing two or three shows per year including one act and three act plays, revues and pantomimes. 

 

In 1983, the group changed to an over 18 format, producing mostly three act comedies.
