The Bay Theatre Players present: Made It on Feb 11th

Many little towns have local amateur theatrical groups. However, relatively few possess their very own ‘real’ theatre and have to perform in the hall of a community centre, or on the stage of a social club or school. So how is it that The Bay Theatre Players have their very own professional, well equipped ‘proper’ theatre? A little theatre, complete with foyer and canteen, a public outdoor sitting area, lighting box, green room, backstage kitchen, changing rooms, rooms to store and hang costumes and a props storage space.

Thanks to life member, Heather Powell, the endeavours of many enthusiastic, passionate and industrious members over the years has now been recorded in the book "Made it", a history of the imagining and creation of The Playhouse in Gregory St Batemans Bay.

The Bay Theatre Players invite all members and members of the public who would like to find out the history of The Playhouse and celebrate the achievements of the last 40+ years to come along to the launch of Heather's book, and the 2023 season on Saturday Feb 11 at 10.30am. This is a social event to recognise past efforts and show appreciation for the wonderful venue we are able to perform in today.

Several members who were involved in the theatre’s creation will be present to relate a few personal anecdotes from their perspective, and to answer any questions. Programs from many years of The Bay Theatre Players productions will also be on display.

The event is free and Heather’s book will be available for purchase on the day for $20. Come enjoy some morning tea and join the community of theatre lovers.
