Devonport Choral Society has been supporting community theatre on the NW Coast of Tasmania for over 65 years. We tap into our talented local communities for directors, actors, singers, musicians, dancers, choreographers, set designers and construction teams, costume designers, artists and back stage crews. We produce one major show a year and have an on-going choir, Right On Cue. If you would like to participate or help in any way, please contact our secretary.
