Welcome to Townsville Little Theatre

Townsville Little Theatre is a dynamic, local community theatre group that has been operating in the city for 50 years.  Over that period we have become an integral part of the community, offering not just family entertainment, but a starting point for many young people interested in a career in the arts. We pride ourselves on the professional standard of our work.

As a community theatre group we have a commitment to encourage our members to become involved at all levels of theatre.  We like to do the things that challenge us and those around us for the betterment of amateur theatre.  We encourage all our members to become involved either in directing or learning directing,  being a member of the cast of a production, being in the stage crew and/or lighting/sound team, and not to forget the all important front of house crew.

Objects and Aims of the Townsville Little Theatre:
Our stated aim is to promote live theatre in North Queensland and to provide members with the opportunity for recreation and artistic expression.

How we achieve our Aims
A Full and Varied Programme.  Each year the artistic committee reviews a number of play scripts and produces a planned programme and invites producers and directors to take up the challenge of putting on the selected plays.

Four Major Productions.  We aim for four major productions each year, together with one or two entries into the North Qld Festival of One Act Plays and our own Short Season of Short Plays and a Family Play.

History of TLT

In 1969/70 it was learned that the Theatre Royal was to be demolished. The City Council suggested that the St James Players and the Stage Door Theatre should put on a joint play to mark its end. So they got together and staged Neil Simon's "Barefoot in the Park" Find out more!
