To all those vagabonds out there, chart a course for Charters Towers and stop into the St Paul’s Playhouse on 14 November. Join the lovely locals and neighbouring folk for a night of music, storytelling and meeting new mates.
Supporting on the evening is local Billie Rose. Hailing from the regional town of Charters Towers in Queensland’s North-West, singer-songwriter, Billie-Rose has the world at her feet. At only 18 years of age, the velvety voiced performer has smoothly blended the lines between country and pop ballad, to create her own niche sound. Billie-Rose’s music reveals a sincerity and depth well beyond her age that appeals to all.
There will be a full bar available at the venue from 6.30pm and during the interval/supper: home made biscuits / slices/ cakes, tea & coffee.
Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start – see you there!
Festival of Small Halls hasn’t visited Charters Towers before so, we’re incredibly excited to meet the locals, welcome in some travellers and unite under the roof of the St Paul’s Playhouse. Below is a collection of photos from our shows over the years. Each and every community holds a special place in our hearts.
St Paul’s Playhouse, home to Towers Players, is Charters Towers oldest remaining completely timber structure. Built in the late 19th century as the towns Anglican Church, the Playhouse today is a key arts and cultural hub of our community hosting plays, musicals, Country Music Festivals and many other events. The venue has had major repairs over the last 20 years and is a must see for all visitors to the town. It has been said that the venue has a ‘ghostly presence’ with many a Players member commenting on odd happenings when alone in the Hall.
St Paul’s Playhouse stands on lands traditionally owned by the Gudjal people.
