When:  August 16, 17 & 18 (Various session times)

The Sunshine Coast Theatre Alliance Inc is proud of the history of this event, more so when the festival will be staging 22 plays from around the greater South East this year between the Open and Youth Sections.

So, welcome both players and audience members alike to beautiful Buderim.

There is a great sense of family within the Festival community and we would like all theatre-makers to view our Festival as the place you can relax, unwind and play. You, the audience, will be witness to the wonderful creative cocktail that has brought everyone together, to share their talents and wholly entertain.

Don’t forget to support our Youth Theatre Festival at The Lind Theatre next Saturday August 24. We encourage all of you to attend this part of our festival as the talent amongst this group will astound and will surely be the breeding ground of the future talent on all our stages. And to that end, we are excited to announce the Youth Bursary has been increased from $200 to $1,000 thanks to the generous sponsor—Coolum Theatre Players. A huge investment in the future of theatre on the Sunshine Coast.

Our adjudicator this year is Andrea Moor. Please make her feel welcome.

An event of this scale and calibre is not possible if it were not for the tireless efforts of an army of volunteers, and like the Festival Circuit, the Sunshine Coast Theatre Alliance, comprising of BATS Theatre Co, Coolum Theatre Players, Oriana Arts, Suncoast Repertory Theatre, The Lind Theatre and Noosa Arts Theatre, has a growing sense of family that have all contributed their time, talents and expertise to making the Festival what it is.

Nor would it be possible without the wonderful support from our sponsors and our media partners: the Sunshine Coast Daily; ABC Coast FM; 104.9 Sunshine FM; and 101.3 Noosa Community Radio; whose generosity is greatly appreciated.

Special thanks to: our team leaders; programme compiler, Stephen Moore; and publicity dynamo Synda Turnbull.
