Funding boost for local theatre

Council has endorsed a $5000 grant to assist Cairns Little Theatre Inc to stage a season of plays this year following the cancellation of all shows in 2020.

The $5000 in-kind Arts and Cultural Venue Hire and Resources Assistance Grant will assist the community theatre company to cover Ticketlink fees and charges, and present shows in a COVID-safe manner.

Cairns Little Theatre usually presents five shows a year, inviting amateur, emerging and established actors, directors, set designers and builders, lighting designers, producers and stage managers to participate in a volunteer capacity.
