It’s A Wrap

Thank you to all who supported our recent production of All the Great Books (Abridged). Though the play had a small cast, Jessi, Tom and Peta there were many assisting the production. From the wonderful organisation of props manager Wendy and props masters, Julie, Meghan and Anna- through to our design and tech teams Nancy, Alex and Anita and FOH and publicity staff and managers Louise, Bruce and Alice and all the volunteers.

A hearty congratulations to Nick and Samantha, the co-directors and Caitie and Darcy (SM and ASM respectively). The smiles on the faces of audiences and the laughter, were a joy to witness. Had excellent feedback both from returning patrons and new audiences.

Was also an honour to host a fundraiser for the Buderim Foundation on opening night & reaffirm our strong commitment to the Buderim community who we have been serving for over 100 years, through our foundation as the Buderim School of Arts to our current incarnation of BATS Theatre Company Inc.
