Redland Museum, with its rich and varied collections, is full of stories – and stories are what make theatre. Theatre Redlands has found its ideal home in the Museum, mining its mother lode of collected history to craft stage presentations that bring the stories to life.

The company was formed in 2019 by a group of experienced theatre operatives, each proficient in a wide range of theatre skills. The foundation members were driven by a commitment to producing high-quality community theatre that would involve and develop individuals of all ages and skills, giving them a vision of what can be achieved by community theatre with professional standards.

Theatre Redlands, with its consistently expanding membership, is rapidly becoming a mainstay of theatre arts in the region. In two years it has developed a repertoire of selected published works and original presentations sourced, written, developed and staged specifically for the Redland Museum.

Even during COVID-driven lockdowns it has kept its energy going; in the twelve months between September 2020 and September 2021 it marked up ten productions to its credit. Watch this space for coming undertakings!

Propping It Up

Celebrating Seniors Month

October 2024
From the chance remark “Wouldn’t it be interesting to write a play about a prop?” came the concept of Propping It Up, a stage production consisting of three vignettes, each featuring a separate prop borrowed from the extensive Redland Museum collection. A gentleman’s valet, a telephone switchboard and a Waler horse – each one has its story. Written and Produced by Jan Nary – Theatre Redlands.

Hardworking, game and resolute – this homage is a small part of their story. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government and Redland City Council partnership to support local arts and culture. Includes 2 Course Meal

Women's Land Army Forum
