Dr Richard Lurve has finished 400th out of 399 graduates from medical school.

Known more for his partying and womanizing, his chances of getting employed are grim. Then a posting becomes available at St Wretched’s, an ailing hospital in regional Queensland.

Elated to have a job, Dr Lurve soon discovers that all is not as it seems at this hospital where the mysterious “Syringe of Shame” has created havoc.

The crazy characters he meets will sing, dance, improvise and brave their way through the hilarious storyline which features plenty of local references, topical events and laugh out loud moments along with a little bit of audience interaction and a whole lot of fun!

CASTING ABOUT..... 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

It was a fabulous and fun social night on Saturday evening for cast and crew of our latest CTP show “Dr Lurve and The Syringe of Shame”

At the invitation of directors Lisa and Kevin Blair the team put their line-learning and dance steps aside for the night and enjoyed socializing and getting to know one another.

It was also an opportune moment for a photo outside the Coolum Beach Bowls Club where our fabulous promo sign is on display!

WOW!
It's been a busy few weeks with two lots of auditions, Easter and ANZAC Day holidays and .... rehearsals kicking off.

It's time to FINALLY announce the amazing cast for our next show, the original, crazy fun comedy:
"Dr Lurve and the Syringe of Shame"

It was no easy task! 30 fine and fabulously talented Sunshine Coast locals turned out for the auditions, making it very tricky for Directors Lisa and Kevin Blair to finalise their cast of 25.

At last, we can excitedly share the NEWS.... the read through was huge fun, rehearsals have kicked off with loads of energy (including dancing and singing!) and now... DRUM ROLL..... here are the stars of the show:

DR LURVE - Matt Dilges
DR WEEVIL - Lachlan Money
MATRON - Michelle England
NURSE BOB - Charlie Harrison
NELLY - Christine Mai
BENDY WENDY - Marnie Serio
DANNY - Gareth Puckeridge
MINISTER FOR HEALTH - Alex Meloni
CLARK KENT - Jacob Shannon
DELORES - Kerry Jamin
DR BOND - Hamish Wood
FITZ-ME - Teyla Brim
FITZ-YOU - Anna Huang
POLLY - Cherie Van Dyke
MRS CRUMBLE - Jenny Budge
MR DINGLE - Wayne Porter
ENSEMBLE - (Nurses, orderlies, patients, chorus)
Matt Ring
Vicki Blumskey
Jay Mitchell
Fiona Bastion
Tracey Darragh
Erin Hodder
Kathy Roselt
Jeff Mitchell
Mel Stewart (and Assistant Stage Manager)

Check the show dates and start making plans with friends for a hugely FUN night out.
This crazy original comedy with songs/laughs and a surprise (or three!) was a smash hit with audiences in WA - and now its time for its Queensland debut.

A very merry (and different) night out for everyone!
Don't miss out!

PS: word on the street is that bookings for opening night and the final night are ALREADY cracking along, so be quick 🙂

Make a Night of It

Seating for the vast majority of our shows is tables of 8 (see here). Please note that you don’t have to book a whole table and we can’t add extra chairs).

You’re encouraged to bring nibbles & wine/beer (cups provided, no unmixed spirits please). We’re BYO only – there are a couple of bottle shops within easy walking distance and some great restaurants for pre-show dining.

All of our shows are, of course, live theatre and this means that we can’t rewind the action – therefore, popping that champagne cork/opening those crisps mid-show is a no-no. Please open your goodies before the action starts on stage.

Our shows are performed at the Coolum Civic Centre, Park Street, Coolum – click here for more information.
