NEWMARKET STAGE COMPANY is a proud member of the ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY THEATRES – CENTRAL ONTARIO (ACT-CO). The past year has halted all theatre and our community theatre sector is doing their best to stay alive during this horrible time. Many groups have tried their best, but sadly some have had to shut down permanently. Please watch the video supplied to us by ACT-CO. Our very own SUSAN LANE participated in the video. WE WILL OPEN OUR DOORS AGAIN!
