Creswick Courthouse Theatre


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 a 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. They have been incredibly lucky to stage plays, pantomimes and musicals from playwrights Carol B. Cole and Deborah Martin who moved to the district.

Creswick Theatre Company prides itself on providing audiences with quality and value-for-money entertainment. They have provided opportunities for many actors and off-stage personnel, many of whom have moved on to bigger and better things. They will profile some of their former members on their 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 Creswick Theatre Company as their performers.

CTC have introduced a monthly film night which is a nice way to catch up with other members and local film buffs.
