Award wins for Best Production. They are always looking for actors, directors and
backstage workers to join them, from just $15 annually. meltheco.org.au.

now in its 51st year, and has settled at the Mosman Park Memorial Hall, where it holds
four full-length productions annually. harbourtheatre.org.au.
Stirling Players Inc
The Stirling Players have been around since the 70s, but thanks to generous donations,
their equipment is far from dated. They rehearse and perform at Stirling Theatre in
Innaloo, and even offer a program for the kids. stirlingplayers.com.au.
