The Penguin Club has been helping to stage amateur dramatic and musical productions in and around Cambridge since 1983.
We don't perform, but provide backstage and technical expertise in a wide variety of roles - from set construction and scenic painting, through lighting and sound design and operation, to props, stage management and crewing. All our members are amateur: no charges, other than individual expenses and a small running fee, are made to the societies we help.
We do not normally work with professional groups, and do not provide set, costume or prop hire.
More information can be found on our website at http://www.penguinclub.org.uk/

Five of the team on Anything Goes were New Penguins, without which the show would have floundered. What's stopping you from getting involved?
