About us

The Creswick Theatre Company was formed by a group of local theatre enthusiasts in 1981 as Creswick Amateur Theatre and staged our first production in the Creswick Town Hall.

Over the years, the Creswick Theatre Company (CTC) became an incorporated body and moved to our permanent location in the Creswick Courthouse in Raglan Street. CTC is operated voluntarily by interested members who give their time and resources freely. Income from each production is returned to the group for use in the next production and for necessary building maintenance.

CTC produce a variety of theatrical entertainment from well-known musicals such as HMS Pinafore, Oliver, Salad Days, Brigadoon, Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat, Guys and Dolls and more. We have been incredibly lucky to stage plays, pantomimes and musicals from playwrights Carol B. Cole and Deborah Martin who moved to the district.

CTC prides itself on providing audiences with quality and value-for-money entertainment. We have provided opportunities for many actors and off-stage personnel, many of whom have moved on to bigger and better things. We will profile some of our former members on this facebook page in the future.

Anyone with an interest in theatre will be given an opportunity to become involved, regardless of experience. Assistance with set building, lighting, sound, costumes or other front of house or back stage roles are as important to us as our performers.

CTC have introduced a monthly film night which is a nice way to catch up with other members and local film buffs. Watch this page for details…

We have recently updated our albums on this facebook page and will be adding photos, programs etc. on a regular basis. We would also love to hear from as many as our former members as possible.
