ADELAIDE THEATRE AND MORE SOCIAL CLUB
(FORMERLY KNOWN AS LEE’S THEATRE CLUB)
On 28 August 1969 the inaugural meeting of Lee’s Theatre Club was held at the Art’s Theatre with an attendance of some 300 people.
The Club’s aims were:
1. To foster the Arts
2. To provide members the opportunity of attending theatre and films at concession rates
3. To promote socialisation through regular dinners and other outings.
After some 40 years, it was decided a change of name was warranted to reflect the Club’s future thinking. At our AGM in July 2015 we became Adelaide Theatre and More Social Club Inc. We continue to uphold the aims of the original Club.
What is the Club?
Adelaide Theatre & More Social Club is an audience based Club offering members tickets for amateur theatre performances around Adelaide including theatres like St Jude’s, The Arts Theatre, Stirling and Elizabeth. The Club also attends a variety of other outings including films, dinners and lunches.
A regular newsletter, the ‘Theatre News’ offers about 20 events for members to enjoy every few months. There is no need to purchase tickets, however we hope members attend events. Most tickets are available on a concessional basis.
ATAM is run by volunteers for the benefit of members. Our Club operates from an office in Netley where John or Christine are in attendance Monday and Friday between 1pam and 3 pm. At other times, the phone is answered by a receptionist and messages passed on.
Membership can be for half or a full year, renewable each September or March. Membership starts at $20 per half year for singles, $30 for a joint membership, doubled for annual fees. New members are welcome to come to 3 outings before joining.
The main advantage of membership is;
• To meet and make new friends with a common interest.
• Convenience of booking either online or direct with the Club
• Not having to collect tickets as they are given to members at the function.
• The Theatre News brings information of coming shows, which helps in deciding what to book for.
