Imagine Theatre Incorporated

Imagine Theatre is a small community theatre, founded in 2006, that enables people of all ages to become involved in the dramatic arts. We have a small but enthusiastic group of volunteers and members numbering about 60.

We are based out of an old scout hall off Woodlands Ave beside Thorp Bush, and are currently heavily involved, with the generous support of our local council, in renovating the building in the hope of creating a performance space that will be an asset to the community.

We attempt to stage at least three performances a year to cater for all our members. Our largest show, aimed at our younger actors, can involve up to 40 children. It is the highlight of the year for us as it requires participation from all our members.

We usually have five performances and are lucky to have a supportive community who come along to watch and encourage. 'Alice in Wonderland', 'Pinocchio' and 'The Voyage of the Jumblies' have been our most recent shows.

Our youth theatre was formed in 2008 as some of our children became young adults and wanted more challenging material to work with. Over the last two years they have had great success staging 'The Cagebirds' and 'Daughters of Heaven'. We are so proud to see the development of their stagecraft. The theatre has created some fine young actors and directors.

Our most recent adult production, 'Anyone for Breakfast', had the audience treated to drinks, nibbles and a great evening's entertainment.

2011 will be busy for us as we continue with renovations and planning for upcoming shows. We are starting the year, hoping to attract all the fantastic talent that we know is out there, by staging a variety show, then on to a youth theatre production, adult production in the winter and our main show towards the end of the year.
