Held at St Andrew’s United Reformed Church in Roundhay, Leeds, the drama group was formed when St Andrew’s was previously known as Roundhay Congregational Church – hence the name – RoCo. In May 2013 we celebrated our 50th anniversary.
We like to stage a wide variety of plays, from comedies to classics, mysteries to musicals. We put on two plays a year, typically in March and November, rehearsals for which take place on Monday and Thursday evenings from 7.30pm, for approximately twelve weeks from January to March, and September to November.
We also produce a Murder Mystery in the summer. This is usually performed over two nights with the audience seated at tables, café style, and a light supper served during the interval.
There is an Annual General Meeting usually held in May or June, which members of RoCo are encouraged to attend, with social time afterwards. Occasionally we hold Social Evenings and play readings, as well as visits to support other drama groups, both amateur and professional.
Members also have the opportunity, if they wish, to participate in drama for worship and in the musicals performed by the church. For more information on St Andrew’s, please do visit their website; www.standrews.cc

We are always happy to welcome new members both on stage and behind the scenes.
