Noosa Arts Theatre

Dear patrons and friends

Noosa Arts Theatre’s much-anticipated 50th Anniversary year has become an unforgettable one, but not in the way we intended.  We have been working to implement the COVID-Safe guidelines for theatres as authorised by Queensland Health to ensure the safety of volunteers, staff, performers and audiences.

While Mamma Mia will be our next full musical production, as long as social distancing remains in place, we will only be able to stage scaled-down productions.  And stage them we will.  The first of these was our annual One Act Playwriting Festival which was delivered as a rehearsed play reading in September.

Stay tuned as we are working on a program of other entertaining and engaging mini-productions.

Thank you all for your patience.  Stay well and hope to see you soon. 

Frank Wilkie

Noosa Arts Theatre President
