A big thank you to all those people who turned up and worked so hard at the working bee at the Rondo Theatre on Sunday. What a brilliant job under the watchful eye of Frank the Foreman! And a big thank you to Cairns Regional Council for the grant that made the construction of our new workshop and covered area possible. Space to work on sets and now also space backstage as  we slowly organise a place for everything and everything in its place.


Coming next at The Rondo

‘This Way Up’ by Elizabeth Coleman, directed by Narelle Shorey.

Featuring Mark Chivers, Alicia Guglielmi, Kirsten Lovett,

Fiona Manders and Marc Raleigh.

Don’t ever say ‘Things can’t get any worse’!

Melanie (Alicia Gulielmi) is having a frantic enough day already with preparations for her Mum’s 6oth birthday, bolstering up her lover-lorn sister Kris, fending off an unwelcome suiter, Damien (Marc Raleigh) and all the while packing up to leave her unsuspecting, never -at-home journo boyfriend (Mark Chivers).

This is just the start of Elizabeth Coleman’s comedy ‘This Way Up’…and then a knock on the door introduces Senior Sergeant Wendy O’Brien (Fiona Manders) with the news that a crisis is developing next door and no one is to leave.

So instead of birthday celebrations, the already edgy foursome find themselves trapped in the house for the night, and what enfolds is a very funny comedy tinged with more than a few home truths.

Following ‘This Way Up’ we have our next

Fringe Production at the Rondo

29, 30 June and 1 July 2017


by Daniel Keene, directed by John Hughes

We’re at a cafe table. In the morning two refugees meet, one younger, one older. In the afternoon two friends approaching old age meet for the final time. They remember their younger selves. In the evening an ex-couple meet.

This play is a one hour, lyrical drama infused with remembrance and regret which consists of three short, separate scenes each with two different actors.

With an excellent cast; Andy Bramble, Ken Cotterill, Lynn Cropp, Kevin West, Theresa Denzin and Michael Gleed; this will be one not to miss. Tickets for our 2017 Fringe Productions are just $12.00 at the door…a great night out in Cairns.



Playing 11th – 19th August 2017

 Butterflies are free by Leonard Gershe; Directed by Nader Sallam.

A carefree “next door girl” walks into this young man’s New York apartment and eventually into his life. A hot romance ensues but things get a little interesting when his mother also walks in. One more thing, the young man happened to be blind! A beautiful, romantic comedy that’s also poignant, sentimental and very touching.

4 actors required:

1 male and 1 female 16 – 30 years old

1 male and 1 female > 40 years old

The play is set in New York, so the ability to speak with an American accent will be an advantage.

Auditioning dates: Sunday and Monday 14th and 15th May – 7pm

For more details contact Nader Sallam 0417 749 153.
