ALADDIN - January 13-19. Book now!

Aladdin
Presented by the Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group.

What do you do with an old dusty lamp? Polish it of course.

But what happens when a larger than life, magical Genie appears?

Mayhem and magic, with lots of laughs, singing and mischief.

A traditional pantomime where the lead character, Aladdin is played by a girl and we are delighted to introduce newcomer Millana Anello in that pivotal role.

Playing the “dame”, Widow Twankey is veteran actor, Ian Rooney, who brings a wealth of experience to this rather flamboyant character.

Joining them as the dark and mysterious stranger Abanazzar, is another professional actor and local identity Matthew King. Matthew last appeared as Captain Hook in the adventures of Peter Pan in 2018.

Sue Rawkins shows her versatility as both the Sorceress “Darkana”and the Empress.

Karina Whytcross plays Princess Baldroubador and others include Guy Wingrave as Wishy Washy, Jess Dolley as Typhoo the dancing panda as well as Colby McCallum & Georgia Archdall as Ping and Pong, River Madden as the Ring Genie, Matthew Tripodi, as the Genie of the Lamp, Emilia Kurak, as the Grand Wazier, Luke McKinnon, Georgia Slaymaker & Delanee Collins.

Aladdin has been adapted from the original tale by director Debbie Fraser and is set in China. This show promises to have something for the whole family.

Shows are twice daily at the Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall.
10.30am and 1.30pm from Monday 13th to Saturday 18th with an evening show on Friday 17th and one show on Sunday 19th at 1.30pm

Nunsense - September 13 - 21

Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group
announce their next production
Nunsense
by Dan Goggin
Directed by Debbie Fraser

To be presented in the Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall
September 13th - 21st  2019 .

Rehearsals are under way following on from the company's recent success of It's My Party (and I'll Die If I Want To) at the 360Q and as part of the Queenscliff Low Light Festival.
Nunsense is an hilarious musical comedy in the traditional Broadway style.

The Little Sisters of Hoboken have decided to put on a “Show” to raise money to bury sisters accidentally poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). Updated with new jokes, additional lyrics, two new arrangements, and a brand new song as well as tap dancing and lots of shenanigans. 


The cast includes Jennie Roles as Sister Mary Regina, a feisty Mother Superior who can't resist the spotlight. Jennie has years of experience as a musical comedy performer with several awards and a list of credits too long to mention here, but last year directed the very popular “Dinkum Assorted”.

Carol Fogg will delight as Sister Mary Hubert, the mistress of Novices. The second in command. Carol has performed with most theatre companies in the Geelong region as well as guest vocalist. Carol was last seen in “Dinkum Assorted”.


QLTG welcomes newcomers to the company, Jess Dolley as Sister Robert Anne, the street wise school teacher and Tamasyn Shannon as the very sweet Sister Mary Leo, who has the desire of being the first ever Nun ballerina.

Lastly Sister Mary Amnesia, who has lost her memory after a crucifix fell on her head is played by Lisa Jones, who is also assisting with vocal direction and previously has worked with the company as stage manager.

 Bookings will be opening soon on Trybooking or through the QLTG website.

It's My Party (And I'll Die If I Want To)

Enjoy a delicious two course meal and a laugh out loud show with Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group's production of Elizabeth Coleman's hilarious comedy It's My Party (And I'll Die If I Want To) at the 360Q Restaurant from June 7-15 as part of the Low Light Queenscliff festival.

Directed by renowned theatre identity Robyn Birrell and featuring local performers Ian Rooney, Emma Jones, Daniel Trotter, Stephanie Byrne, Tess Evans and Petrina Dakin.

The Cast of It's My Party (And I'll Die If I Want To)
Stephanie Byrne, Emma Jones, Daniel Trotter
Robyn Birrell (Director), Petrina Dakin
Ian Rooney, Tess Evans

Join us for an hilarious and biting slice of family life laid bare by the imminent passing of the “bombastic but adorable” patriarch, Ron Patterson.

Playwright, Elizabeth Coleman (Secret Bridesmaids Business) is one of Australia's finest writers. Her observations of a “typical” Australian family and all that comes with sibling rivalry is hysterically captured in her endearing but flawed characters and her wincingly funny one liners.

For bookings simply select your preferred performance from the list below and follow the prompts.

It's My Party (And I'll Die If I Want To) is presented by Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group in collaboration with 360Q as part of the Low Light Queenscliff Festival.
