Nomination forms are available for anyone wishing to join the CTP Committee and can be obtained in advance as well as at the AGM. All nominations must have a seconder from the committee.  All posts are up for re-election, and there is a vacancy for a Front of House co-ordinator. Please note that only members can vote at the AGM, although anyone can attend.

Please do consider joining the committee and playing a part in the future development and success of CTP. We would love to see fresh faces at the table and there is lots of scope for new committee members to develop or learn the skills of managing the behind-the-scenes activities of community theatre and contribute to the creative elements, including programming.

Break out the greasepaint! We’re on our way!

By | Uncategorized

Have you missed us? We’ve missed you! It feels like forever since we were on the point of welcoming audiences to enjoy a good night out seeing our comedy, Diplomatic Relations. Our hopes were dashed by Covid-19 at the last minute and boy, were we disappointed. Even worse – so were you, our faithful theatre fans.

Now, with the recent opening of our venue, Coolum Civic Centre, and with a hefty Covid Safety Plan all drawn up to keep everyone in the venue safe, we’re blowing the cobwebs off our stage set and everyone in the cast is brushing up their lines. All we need now is the final confirmation of our performance dates – which we hope to be able to tell you very shortly!

We’ll also keep you posted on news about Diplomatic Relations and our 2021 season via our monthly newsletter and our Facebook page (see links below).
