Cinderella fun for families this July

Book now for 4 to 9 July 2022, two shows daily!

The Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group holiday show Cinderella is going ahead - six months after originally planned. 

It will be staged from Monday 4 July to Saturday 9 July at Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall, corner Stokes Street and Hesse Street, Queenscliff. There are two shows daily, at 10.30am and 1.30pm, as well as an evening show on Friday 8 July at 7.30pm.

The theatre group had originally "bumped in" the Cinderella set and was about to open the show in January, when the show was postponed because of a spike in COVID-19 numbers. 

Director Debbie Fraser said: "I'm delighted to say Cinders is back, and with two new cast members. We can promise a fun show for local families and visitors alike."

Tickets are $15 children and $20 adults, and are available via www.qltg.org.au or www.trybooking.com/BVSVY. Group bookings are available - see the trybooking site for details.

Victorian COVID-Safe requirements apply

Note: for the children, if you participated in our Cinderella colouring competition in January, you will be happy to know we will finally be drawing a winner! The prize is a family ticket to the show.

CINDERELLA - POSTPONED

 

Unfortunately due to the current Covid situation we have had to postpone our January pantomime "Cinderella" to a later date.

We must make a hard decision in postponing this production until later in the year at a safer time for all cast, crew, and audience.

The risk of putting on a show inside the fantastic Uniting Church Hall we convert into a Theatre, in an enclosed space to create the darkness for Theatre lighting effects and the need to air condition the room is too great a risk with the current Covid situation in our community.

The committee must think of the safety of all, and I hope you understand.

The show must go on, but not now, we have the sets, the talent, and the team for this production to be a success later in the year.

As soon as we are able to proceed with the show we will post an update on qltg.org.au

Celebrations postponed

But there's a party coming...

Due to the recent COVID restrictions and the unknown scenario moving forward, we have, with much regret, decided to cancel our August Gala performance to mark 20 years.

With this in mind, we will be throwing a BIG party next year to celebrate the wonderful achievement and people who have been a part of the QLTG over 21 years!

In the meantime, if you have any anecdotes or photos you would like to share, please send them along to us at qltg.theatre@gmail.com, as we are hoping to produce a small souvenir booklet to mark this milestone.

Please stay in touch and we will let you know what is happening closer to the date.


Vale Meg Gillian

It is with sadness that we advise of the passing of Meg Gillian on 22 July 2021.  


Meg was a member of the Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group from our early days. Meg performed in many of our shows, both as a solo performer and as part of the ensemble.  


She is probably best remembered for her rendition of Send In The Clowns.


In addition to her on stage contribution, Meg also served on the original QLTG committee when QLTG was established. 


Our deepest condolences are extended to Meg’s family.

We're celebrating 20 years!

We are proud to be celebrating our 20th anniversary in 2021

After a two-year break in live performance, brought about by the pandemic,
we are planning a return to the stage with a special show in August.

Called "As Time Goes By", the cabaret-style performances will showcase the songs
and scenes that have entertained our audiences over the past two decades.

As Time Goes By

@ Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall
Friday 20 August - Gala Opening
Saturday 21 August - evening
Sunday 22 August - matinee

@St James Church Hall, Drysdale
Saturday 28 August - matinee 2pm
Sunday 29 August - matinee

Evening tickets include show and supper $25
Matinee tickets include Devonshire tea $15

Since our first show Time and Tide, we've staged musicals, music hall, plays and pantos in different venues around Queenscliffe. They include The King and I, Annie, Calendar Girls, Aladdin, Secret Bridesmaids Business, Dimboola, Casting Capers and many more.


We'd also love to hear from past and current members
who'd like to be part of this trip down memory lane!

If you have a song or small group item you would like to perform,
or want help out behind the scenes, let us know.
