Christmas Trivia Night! & Show Proposals

EXCITING NEWS!!!!

The QP Family have 2 exciting announcements for you today!

Number 1!

SAVE THE DATE!!!!

QP will be holding ‘Christmas at The B’, a fun Christmas concert and trivia night, on Saturday 18th December at The B (The Bicentennial Hall Queanbeyan, part of The Q – Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre) 6:45pm for 7.00pm start.

Tickets for this great event will be available from Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre box office (theq.net.au) at the beginning of November.

QP will be raising funds for a local family who you may have read about recently, and Tadgh Loadsman was a part of our awesome ‘Oliver!’ cast.

The Loadsman family, are going through a devastating diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease with mum Tascha. All money raised on the night will be donated to Lift Tasch Up – Fundraising Event (You, Me & MND).

You can also read more at You, Me & MND – Motor Neurone Disease. Drinks and snacks will be available from the bar, and there will be the option to add some wonderful grazer boxes to your table via our friends at the The Lazy Grazer.

There will be some fantastic trivia and raffle prizes throughout the night as well! 😀 So if you love trivia and Christmas, start organising your table of 10! There will be performances from this years 20 piece QP Christmas Choir, and then swing the night away with special guests the Blamey Street Big Band.

Tickets will be onsale soon!

Number 2! Show Proposals for 2023 Due to the postponing of shows through 2021 and the necessity to move show into 2022 we already have our first show at The Q for 2023 – Footloose.

QP is interested in hearing from you with a proposal you would like to put forward for a show during 2023. We would love to hear from you if you have any suggestions for shows or if you have a production team interested in putting on a show.

A general expectation of a formal proposal would be to have the Director, Musical Director and Choreographer introduced as part of the submission.

Don’t worry if you only have a partial production team however, as QP can assist in finding a suitable candidate if the company decides to move forward with the proposal.

Please set out your proposal with the name of the show, synopsis, characters and approximate cast numbers, your production team with bios, reasons for your choice, your requirements and breakdown of how you would stage the show.

We will need to have your proposals by 31st December 2021 sent to queanbeyanplayersinc@gmail.com If you are having trouble with writing a proposal, please reach out and we can provide a template to help you get started!

It is with sadness that I announce the passing of Norma Roach.  Queanbeyan Players founder and Life Member.

Norma passed away peacefully last Monday morning.  She will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts are with Helen and the rest of the family.

A service for Norma will be held at Norwood Park Crematorium on Monday 8th February at 12.00PM.  People are most welcome to attend.

Below are details of the service if you would prefer to watch via live stream.
