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 will be our annual One Act Playwriting Festival which will be 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

Our next production is coming….

Food for Thought on stage in November…

We will staging three fabulous comedies in November that will tantalise your taste buds.

Come and enjoy a live performance that will have you laughing and wanting to go back for seconds. Grab some friends and come along for a great time out.

Between Mouthfuls – A comedy romp by Alan Ayckbourn and directed by Sue Clapham.

A fateful dinner encounter featuring two couples and a seemingly impersonal waiter highlights simmering tensions in the two fraught relationships –  Alan Ayckbourn’s usual light-hearted but insightful look at a tense and serious moment – no happy endings here.

Chook Chook – A comedy by Fiona Farrell and directed by John McMahon

In a battery farm, Valmai, Chrissy, Georgia and Bron refer to their cages as ‘compartments’ and eat the same food day after day under the same continuous ‘sun’. This comedy confronts us with the life of a battery hen and forces us to consider the ethics of battery farming.

Cupboard Love – A comedy by Jean McConnell, directed by Sue Sewell presented by Miranda’s Dressing Room

Peggy and Jane come to rest after jogging. They find to their delight that they have much in common, but when they discover, to their horror, they share a passion for the same man, the two women devise their culinary revenge on the deceiver.
