Q: Do I have to book tickets?
A: Our shows regularly sell out so booking in advance is advisable, particularly if you want to be in a specific area or sit at your favourite table.
Q: How can I book?
A: Tickets can be booked online or by Alternatively, phone or visit North Shore Realty:
(07) 5446 2500 or 1792 David Low Way, Coolum Beach[/expand]
Q: I’m coming to see a show – what do I need to know?
A: Unless advertised, seating for the majority of our shows is based on tables of 8 (see here). Please be aware that we are unable to add extra seats to tables (i.e. you can’t have a table of 9) nor can we move seats from table X to table Y. However, if you book early, we can generally seat larger parties close together. There is an absolute limit of 160 patrons per show in compliance with fire and safety regulations. This also means we can ensure all guests have the best view possible.
Q: Can we bring our own food and drinks?
A: Yes, we encourage you to bring snacks and drinks to enjoy during the performances. We’re BYO only – there are a couple of bottle shops within easy walking distance. However, tea, coffee and soft drinks are available for sale in our foyer. If you prefer to eat ahead of the show, there are some great restaurants for pre-show dining nearby, including the Coolum Bowlo nearby – one of our sponsors.
Q: Where are the shows performed?
Q: I / my child / grandchild want to learn to act – can CTP help?
A: Yes, we are delighted to welcome beginners as well as experienced actors to audition for roles and our directors will be able to coach you in stage craft and ensure your first experience of being in a show and onstage is positive and fun. If you are new to Coolum, contact us for a chat.
