The Creswick Theatre Company was formed by a group of local theatre enthusiasts in 1981 as Creswick Amateur Theatre, and staged our first production that year in the Creswick Town Hall.
Creswick Theatre Company produces 3 to 4 shows each year covering a wide range of themes and genres. Our productions have included well-known musicals such as HMS Pinafore, Oliver, Salad Days, Brigadoon, Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat, Guys and Dolls and more. We have also 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.
Membership fluctuates each year from 20 to over 80 which is not bad for a town of around 3200 people. Membership at present is around 50.
Since 1982, the CTC has produced an average of at least three performances a year, with four annual shows since 2015
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.
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.
