How we operate

MATS is a non-for-profit organisation run by a committee which is elected by members at our AGM. Members make proposals to the committee on what production we should do. The committee discusses and will vote on whether to proceed with the production. Each production has their own production team which is coordinated by the Producer and Director. 

The society is run similar to a production company and therefore does not offer drama or music classes.
