The 2016 Gold Coast Area Theatre Awards
were presented on
Tuesday 13 December
at the Arts Centre Gold Coast


Inaugurated in 2009 and now regarded as the highlight of the performance year on the Coast, the Awards acknowledge the huge contribution made to the area's entertainment life, by awarding participants in shows staged by local community theatre groups and high schools and colleges during the year.

A panel of judges visits dozens of musicals and plays staged by local companies in a catchment area from Beenleigh in the north to Ballina in the south - and awards winners in categories covering set, costume, lighting and sound design, music and show direction, leads and support actors and actresses and many others.

The night is a glittering, glamorous celebration of the very best theatre produced each year on the Gold Coast - and a must for anyone involved in theatre!

The Gold Coast Area Theatre Awards are facilitated by an autonomous independent group of experienced theatre devotees and has no affiliation or connection with any professional or community theatre group, company, alliance or organisation.
