In June 2016, we took part in a Dragon’s Den held by Wigan Rotary. Through the generous donations of Wigan residents the Rotary were able to donate a total of £5,000 to 10 local community groups. Wigan Musical Theatre Group were lucky enough to receive a £500 donation which will go towards the staging of our next production. Our thanks to Wigan Rotary for hosting a wonderful evening and to everyone who support the Rotary in their good works.

2015, March – Cyclone Pam Appeal:
In March 2015 we staged the popular Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, South Pacific. In the same month Cyclone Pam ripped through the South Pacific islands of Vanuatu leaving devastation in her wake. We decided to launch our own appeal in support of the victims of the damage caused by storms and flooding.
We would like to extend thanks to the audience of South Pacific. During the week of the performance an amazing £400.00 was raised which has now been donated to the Oxfam Cyclone Pam appeal.
