Witness a plucky community theatre about to produce Murder Most Foul, a new ‘murder mystery play’ with the same title as an Agatha Christie novel but with no relation whatsoever.

Director & Theatre manager, Gerry, thought producing the play was a good idea since the inexperienced playwright agreed to let the company perform the show free of charge. Gerry had no idea what disasters awaited her: the show is hilariously amateur, the ‘murder mystery’ plot doesn’t have a murder, and to top it off the playwright keeps changing the story and script only two days from the premiere!

With a disgruntled cast, a missing sound effects board, watch all of these disasters come to fruition when the company performs the actual show!

With ridiculous mishaps as every turn, Play On! is a hilarious love letter to community theatre.

Please note: this play is presented as part of NAFA (who require additional information for ticket bookings).

Our 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 the 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 to direct, 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 several 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.
