Make a proposal for our 2023 program!!

A message from our President

QLTG was delighted to return to the stage this year, after a two-year break caused by COVID-19. Our January pantomime, at first postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, was successfully staged in July. 

We then had a wonderful 21st Birthday celebration in August. It was certainly a time of reflection on the amazing achievements of the company. However, our planned January 2023 pantomime had to be cancelled as we were unable to fully cast the show. 

The QLTG committee recently met to review our year and brainstorm how to move forward. We're looking to reconnect with our community, build our membership and try some fun new ideas for theatrical events and entertainments in the coming year.

Got a great idea??!!

Importantly, we would really like to hear your creative ideas for plays, performances or social events that QLTG could do.

We are also keen to hear from directors/producers/creators who might be interested in doing a show in Queenscliff. 

We invite you to come forward with a proposal for our 2023 program. 

Simply send your contact details and a brief outline of your proposal and email them to, and we'll be in touch. 

We look forward to hearing from you.

Terry Fogg

President QLTG





My proposal is:


We welcome new members. Whether on stage, front of house, backstage, or another role, there's plenty of options for getting involved in local theatre with a friendly group of people.

I am interested in one or more of the following:




Stage management


Lighting design

Set design

Set construction

Marketing and communications

Front of house

Committee member

The Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group went down memory lane in a happy celebration of our 21st birthday in August.

Past and present members gathered at Queenscliff Uniting Church Hall to reminisce about the 35 shows put on by the company, and the many friendships and fun shared.

Special guests on the night were two of the original members – Norma Addison and Ellen Burke.

Norma did a fantastic job putting together the photo boards on display, featuring
QLTG shows from 2001 to 2013.

The entertainment included songs from alumnni David Golightly, Dan Eastwood and Nicole Hickman, Peter, Paul and Marion, Edwina Royce, Stewart Firth and Ian Rogulski, Carol Fogg and Lisa Hearnden-Jones.

MC was the delightful Ian Rooney, who constantly teased QLTG secretary Lyn
Houldcroft with his puns but got a run for his money from former stage “wife” Emma Jones.

Former president Ian Royce was greatly chuffed to be awarded a life membership.

QLTG president Terry Fogg said: “I want to give special thanks to all the past
members, some who are no longer with us - musicians, actors, singers, dancers,
stage managers, crew, committee, sponsors and audience - who have supported
QLTG over the past 21 years. We also thank the Queenscliff Uniting Church and Queenscliff RSL for their continued support.

"Here's to another 21 years!"

Check out more photos on our facebook page!

Were you at the 21st birthday reunion? Do you have any photos of the event? Especially members of the audience! Send them to and we'll put them on display (and keep for posterity!)
