ST PAUL’S PLAYHOUSE, QLD, GUDJUL COUNTRY
The St Paul’s Playhouse stands on the traditional lands of the Gudjul people.
St Paul’s Playhouse – home to Towers Players – is Charters Towers’ oldest remaining, completely timber structure. Built in the late 19th century as the town’s Anglican Church, the Playhouse today is a key arts and cultural hub for the 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 Player member commenting on odd happenings when alone in the Hall.
Charters Towers will celebrate 150 years in 2022!
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Charters Towers on Friday, 22 October 2021 with Darren Hanlon and Kelly Brouhaha.
Opening the show will be local act Annabella Keough!
Annabella is a country pop singer who entered her first singing competition in Charters Towers at age 13. Bella has continued to compete in local country music festivals and vocal competitions ever since, collecting many prizes including the 2021 CT Performing Arts Bursary for Most Promising Vocalist, which she was recently awarded for a performance of one of her original songs. While Bella is currently a year eleven boarder at All Souls St Gabriels School, her appreciation for country music was inspired growing up on a cattle station 300km north of Charters Towers, in the Etheridge Shire, where she was named 2021 Junior Citizen of the Year for her involvement in arts and entertainment across the region, a contribution she hopes to expand and grow across the music industry in years to come.
Bar Service will be available at the Hall from 6.30pm, catered by Towers Players.
