Noosa Arts Theatre

Dear patrons and friends

COVID-safe practices remain and wearing a mask has been recommended in situations where you may not be able to maintain physical distancing, such as entering and exiting the theatre. 

Under our existing industry plan, patrons will now be required to check in with the Check in QLD QR code.  The app is available here for download prior to your arrival.

Whilst Noosa Arts Theatre has implemented recommended COVID control measures, by entering, all visitors accept there currently remains an unquantifiable risk of transmission. All visitors are assumed to have assessed this risk of transmission in making the decision to attend the theatre.

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

Noosa Arts Theatre President

Directors’ Workshop

The Directors’ Workshop scheduled for Tuesday 3 August was also cancelled. We are hoping to reschedule this event but as yet we have no date for it. We will contact all participants when there is more news.

Join NIDA trained Rory Williamson for a day of insights and practical advice for aspiring and experienced directors. 

Topics include:
Breaking down the text : what is the play about?
Your vision for work.
Pitching your play
Working through artistic differences
Preparing your actors for a role: backstory, breaking down your script
Working with Actors and Technical Production Crews in Theatre

This workshop is largely funded by the Regional Arts Development Fund which is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

Tickets for the day are $15 each which includes lunch, morning and afternoon tea.

“This isn’t supposed to happen in Australia. This only happens in America.”

Five teenagers, barricaded in a school theatre … waiting. This harrowing experience will unite them and change them, forever. 

Described as “a grim re-imagining of The Breakfast Club”, Stephanie Clark’s AND NOW WE WAIT is a brilliantly written piece of heart thumping realist theatre. 

Written in 2015 by 23 year old Clark as part of the Australian Theatre for Young People’s Fresh Ink Programme, AND NOW WE WAIT received rave reviews at the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival. 

The young actors of BYTES Studio B are proud to present this powerful work which brings us all to the cutting edge of our humanity.
