A Message from the President of Z-PAC Theatre

Hi everyone

Liane Mills

Welcome to Z-PAC, your local Community Theatre. And if you are wondering what Z-PAC stands for, it is Zephyr Street Performance Arts Community Theatre.

Z-PAC is the Fraser Coast's Premier Community Theatre, producing a high number of quality productions each year, using local actors, directors, technical and support staff. We are always very happy to welcome new people into our theatre community. Z-PAC is available for hire to visiting artists as well as local individuals, businesses and groups looking for a venue for their meetings, events and performances.

We offer many innovative programs and activities including our Country Rock Blues Club, Karaoke Nights, Charity Preview Shows and much more. Please peruse our website and contact us for more information. The Box Office is open every Friday 9-12 so feel free to drop in and say hi. Our friendly volunteers are eager to be of assistance.

Best wishes and see you at the theatre soon.

A few words from the President:

Great review from patrons for brilliant Acting, the wonderful Front of House experience and the beautiful set of the current show It’s Only a Play

Congratulations to Joanne and her Front of House team and Derek and his maintenance team – so many positive comments about the friendly staff, lovely decorations and wonderful music in the foyer. And so many comments about the beautiful set too. So much work goes into it all and we thank you for your dedication and hard work . The actors too have worked so hard and are putting in amazing performances which the audience is loving! One weekend to go – don’t miss out – book now!
If you’ve seen the show, we’d love you to write a review on our Facebook page or in Trip Advisor

Two shows auditioning soon. See below for details!

After this show, we will be busy rehearsing our final two productions for the year. Auditions coming up very soon so if you have an interest in performing, see below for details! The Xmas Panto is a great way to engage new actors and young performers.

Volunteers cleaning the cottage

Big Thanks to our lovely ladies Helen Jennings and Katrin Chrysaphis for their wonderful work in the Cottage. I don’t think it has ever looked better! All our Costumes and props are so tidy, making it so much easier to find everything, and providing a much needed extra rehearsal space!

MOU with Culture Caf at the Community Centre

Memorandum of Understanding with the Culture Caf has just been renewed for another year. Culture Caf is a great monthly event open to the public, which showcases different Cultures each month, serving food from the country and providing entertainment. See Flyer at the end of the Newsletter. Each month I host the event and have the opportunity to share with the 150 attendees what is coming up at Z-PAC. Z-PAC provides costumes and props for the events too. Recently our Tech Director Jeff Sweeney installed their new lighting, ably assisted by Michael Doherty. In return, Culture Caf promotes Z-PAC to all its members and volunteers, who regularly attend our shows and even volunteer with us! Great to see community groups working together!

Z-PAC Performs out in the Community

This past month Z-PAC has performed shows at Torbay Retirement Village, the Focus on Friendship Morning Tea at the Urangan Community Centre and at the Seniors Expo. All were very well received and Torbay and Urangan CC would love more! It is great to be able to provide entertainment for those who do not have the opportunity to attend our theatre. Thanks to Steve Dixon for his involvement with me, and to Jeff Sweeney for his valuable assistance running the sound.

Best wishes and see you at Z-PAC soon! Liane Mills President read more

    A Few Words from the President, Liane Mills

    It is with a heavy heart we share the sad news of the recent passing of one of our wonderful supporters, George Mclean, partner of Suzanne Geddes. For many years George contributed greatly in the technical area of the theatre, before illness made him largely settle back as a patron. However, he still managed to assist with Front of House and back stage where he could (pictured with Suzie and Director, Judith LaForest working on the show The Odd Couple in March 2017).

    We will all miss his friendly manner and cheerful smile which always brightened those around him. Rest in Peace George. read more

    What a fabulous first weekend for Godspell! The audiences for this sellout show have been so enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed it. Congratulations to Directors Tim Holstein and Cherie Treloar and the entire cast and crew for this brilliant production. Hope you have seen the show and if not, there are a few tickets left for next weekend, so book here https://www.trybooking.com/TJIS

    At a Zonta Breakfast for International Women’s Day recently, I had the pleasure of meeting the amazing actor, teacher and director Dawn Albinger. It would be wonderful to have Dawn come up and do some workshops with our actors, and we are in discussions now to see if we can make this happen. read more
