We Need Your Help!
Holroyd Musical and Dramatic Society is coming up to its 50th year and to celebrate we want to give our home base, lovingly named ‘The Shed’, some much needed TLC!
The Shed was generously given to the society back in 1971 and for the past 50 years has been the workshop and home for the sets, props and costumes of over 150 productions. Not only is The Shed part of our history, it is a vital asset to the society. HMDS relies entirely on ticket sales from its productions and as such don’t have the means to procure a new separate storage space.
Everyone experiences the harsh reality of time and The Shed is no exception. Over the past 12 months our dear Shed has really started to show its age, so a massive project has been underway to breathe new life into our beloved home.
Thanks to the generous donation of ANA Demolitions just under 100 square metres of asbestos roofing and cladding has been removed at no charge to the society.
We have also had the hard-working volunteers of John Brown, Duncan Dodds and David King give over 200-man hours installing new battens and roofing to the front section, completing phase 1 of our repairs.
We are now preparing for phase 2, which is much larger than its predecessor! We need to replace the roofing, battens and gutters of the back section, covering a total area of 200 square metres, as well as replacing some of the existing walls.
It’s a massive undertaking but with your help we know we can get it done!
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
To help make our renovation dreams come true we are reaching out to our beloved community and asking you to donate to our cause.
Every dollar raised will go towards the maintenance and upkeep of The Shed which assists HMDS in continuing to be a part of the wonderful community theatre culture in Sydney.
