Your Theatre Needs You – Volunteer at the Bowraville Theatre

Mrs Dale Hawkins, Secretary of the Bowraville Arts Council, wants the public to come and support this wonderful community asset.

COMMUNITY facilities such as the iconic Bowraville Theatre, a fully restored art deco style theatre in High Street Bowraville, are rare and the Nambucca Valley is fortunate to possess such a gem.

Volunteer operated and managed, the theatre struggled to get through the COVID pandemic as the bills had to be paid and the facility maintained however they were unable to hold events to raise funds.

Now that life is back to relative normality the Bowraville Theatre is well and truly back in business and has already boasted capacity audiences.

Tasman Keith’s homecoming concert sold out, fans snapped up tickets to the ultra popular Hello Tut Tut and tickets to the Bowraville Theatre Singers sold fast.

There are a number of great acts and movies booked for the theatre in the months ahead and with the theatre soon to start construction on a state of the art dressing room and green room facilities this trend is set to increase.

On Sunday 23 October 2022 the Bowraville Arts Council, who operate the theatre, will be holding their Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Music Soiree.

News Of The Area spoke to Mrs Dale Hawkins, Secretary of the Bowraville Arts Council, who said, “The theatre has really come back to life with some amazing events but we need more volunteers to help us keep it going.

“Training is provided and we are looking for people who might be interested in front of house roles, technical crew and backstage crew jobs.”

The Bowraville Arts Council is inviting the public to come along to the theatre for the AGM on Sunday 23 October at 2:00pm.

“You can come along and speak to volunteers and committee members, find out how the theatre works, and enjoy an afternoon of music by Heather Rose and complimentary drinks and finger food.”
