RoCo is an amateur dramatics society held at St Andrew’s United Reformed Church in Roundhay, Leeds.
The drama group was formed in 1963 when St Andrew’s was previously known as Roundhay Congregational Church, hence the name 'RoCo'. In 2023 we celebrated our 60th anniversary.
We like to stage a wide variety of plays, from comedies to classics, mysteries to musicals. We put on two plays a year, usually in March and November, performed over three nights. We also stage a Murder Mystery in the summer, which is typically performed over two nights with the audience seated at tables, café style. Our rehearsals take place on Monday and Thursday evenings, starting from 7.30pm.
2023 saw the return of our Junior RoCo group, which is available for younger participants between the ages of 8-16, who would like to get involved with some amateur dramaticsJunior RoCo provides training in various stage techniques, helping to develop confidence in general drama skills through performance-based activities.
There is an Annual General Meeting usually held in June which members of RoCo are encouraged to attend, with social time afterwards. We occasionally try to 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 St Andrew's. For more information on the church, please do visit their website;​​​​​​
We always welcome new members both on stage and behind the scenes. If you are interested in treading the boards, being a member of stage crew, helping with producing, make-up and stage management etc, we'd love to meet you!
