                                  Message from the Chairman
                          To celebrate our 30 years as an amateur theatre society, we decided to do the ever popular West
                          Side Story.

                          We are a non-profit society with our main aim to introduce the “youth” of the East Rand to the
                          theatre. Our shows are totally open, restricted only by age. We have been fortunate to attract a
                          multi-racial cast for our last few shows. We classify our shows as “Junior”, with a cast mainly
                          between the ages of 7 years to mid-teens, and “ Senior”, with a cast mainly between mid-teens and
                          mid-twenties. West Side Story is a senior production. We are especially pleased to have an “old”
                          Protea actress as our “young” director. Our committee and production team are mainly in their
                          mid-twenties or younger with only a few “oldies” providing continuity.

                          We started life in Benoni during the sixties as a choral society and progressed into a youth
                          theatrical group with “The Bells of Bruges” in 1972. By 1975 Protea was producing two “senior”
                          shows a year. During 1979 the “junior” section was formed with their first show “Captain and His
                          Floating Zoo”. We continue with this successful format to this day with our repertoire showing the
                          distinction between the two groups with Can-Can and West Side Story on the one hand and Mary
                          Poppins and Peter Pan on the other.

                          We are also pleased that many of our players have gone on to make it professionally or semi-
                          professionally both locally and overseas.

                          So sit back and enjoy our show. You might be able to say one day. “I saw so-and-so in West Side
                          Story when he/she was a young amateur.”
