Gerald McQuilken said: “Portrush Theatre Company aims to bring all sections of the community together to perform concerts, plays and pantomimes.
“Open to all ages and all members of the community, we are aiming to bring theatre alive again.
“Having fun is our main aim!
“We have secured a director, a Musical Director, a Choreographer, a Make up and a Stage manager. We still need a few more heads of departments to head the huge team of people waiting to get started on this well overdue project.”
