Can you help us?
Stagecraft and the Gryphon Theatre are always upgrading and developing. If you're interested in donating, we'd very much value some dark-coloured carpet to replace the worn carpet backstage.
If you're able to help us, call Iona Anderson on (04) 475 8434. Thanks!

As a volunteer organisation, Stagecraft relies on the efforts of its members to put on plays, maintain the venue and manage the affairs of the society.
Every year, at the Annual General Meeting, the society elects a management committee made up of the separately elected officers of the society, and up to nine members who take part in the decision-making and who have their own areas of responsibility. This committee takes overall responsibility for organising the affairs of the society.
Stagecraft's financial year runs from 1 January to 31 December. The AGM is usually held in early March to allow enough time for the accounts to be audited. The committee year runs from AGM to AGM.
The committee for 2012/13 is:
- President: Sam Perry
- Vice-President: Christine Bartlett
- Treasurer: Devon Heaphy
- Secretary and memberships: Rodney Bane
- Costume and prop hire: Iona Anderson
- Newsletter compiler: Susannah Donovan
- Front of house coordinator, theatre manager: Joy Hellyer
- Stephen Fearnley
- Paul Kay
- Amy Whiterod
- Andrew Cross
- Corinna Bennett
- David Cox
