Site Update

The site has undergone a much needed makeover. Several new pages have been added updating some of our more recent show; photos have been magically imported from Facebook Albums and we have a lovely new header featuring those gorgeous Bad Girls!

ROC members, there is a new page just for you where you will be able to access your rehearsal files. Message from Petrina – Please use them!!!!

And last of all, a little choral joke.

How many Musical Directors does it take to change a light bulb?
Nobody knows, because no one was watching!
