In September 2020 we were delighted to announce that Mayor Greg Williamson had accepted our invitation to become Kucom Theatre's new Patron. Mayor Williamson has already shown us his support in many ways, and we look forward to having him on board with us to share our journey. Mayor Williamson's appointment was formally ratified at the Kucom Annual General Meeting on 23rd March 2021.
We would also like to take this opportunity to say a warm thank you to former Councillor Kevin Casey, who has worked tirelessly on our behalf over the past eight years and is now looking forward to enjoying a well-earned retirement.
It was a bit dark at Kucom in 2020, thanks to the coronavirus, but we did manage to stage a season of one-act plays earlier in the year, followed by a pantomime (Cinderella's Halloween Adventure) in October and a comedy (First Things First) in November.
The Committee is looking forward to an exciting lineup for 2021, which has already kicked off with The New Normal, a season of one-act plays in February, and will continue with two comedies: Big Bad Mouse, directed by Geoff Stewart-McLean, to be staged in April; and Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, directed by Luana Royle, which is planned to be part of the 2021 Mackay Festival of Arts in July.
Both of these plays are now well into rehearsal.
Victor Scott will be directing a fourth season in October: When The Rain Stops Falling, by Australian playwright Andrew Bovell (probably best known as the writer of Lantana).
Club Nights were put on hold for 2020, but we managed to squeeze one in just in time for Christmas, on Saturday 12 December.
It was a great success, as you will see from the photos on our Facebook page:
More Club Nights will be coming up in 2021.
