Waipawa Musical and Dramatic Club performs 2 main shows a year with a cast of around 30-35 adults and children. Rehearsing three times a week.

Our rehearsal room floor is in a sorry state. It is 6 different sections taped and retaped together over many years but it's now beyond repair and is a safety hazard.

Three of our members hope to raise towards the floor by running the Triple Peaks in March. You can sponsor these three lovely ladies here:

Next Gen Bootcamp

During August of 2016 three of our young members attended MTNZ's Next Gen bootcamp in Dunedin. They found this experience extremely rewarding and have since used the contacts they made networking with both professionals and other young people throughout New Zealand. They thank Waipawa M&D for this great opportunity.

Four members of our committee accompanied by our much loved patron Valda Peacock ventured to Rotorua to attend the annual conference, AGM and training weekend of MTNZ. This was a greatly rewarding weekend learning loads and making connections throughout Australasia. 

Quiz night 

For one of our latest social functions Zinc Cafe kindly hosted us on a chilly winters evening for a night of fun filled theatre trivia accompanied by a glass of wine or two and lots of laughter.
