PenelopeHunt_SlowDatingSlow Dating A Hit!

Footprint Theatre’s latest project SLOW DATING by Adam Szudrich and directed by Lis Shelley appeared in Week 1 of the Canberra Short+Sweet Play Festival at the Canberra Theatre Centre.

SLOW DATING was selected as a finalist, placing judge’s second in the Week 1 plays and was performed at the Gala Final on Saturday 20 August 2016, where Penelope Hunt was judged runner up Best Actor for the 2016 Festival – congratulations Penny!. 

SLOW DATING is a delicious monologue featuring ‘Ester’ – a 70-something self-confessed happily married woman who goes to a Speed Dating event for seniors for ‘a little look-see’. SLOW DATING is Footprint Theatre’s third Short+Sweet festival gig.

Footprint Theatre will be performing SLOW DATING in the Bega Valley before the end of 2016 – join our mailing list to ensure you hear when and where!

a thriller by Roger Leach and Colin Wakefield

24 March – 2 April 2017 Pambula Town Hall
This intriguing and multi-layered, witty thriller is full of unexpected twists. A Russian doll of a play, it moves from a seemingly innocuous domestic play reading, through a murder mystery in the classic style, to a final terrifying and violent climax.

AUDITIONS SOON! (2 male, 2 female actors)  Join Footprint Theatre to get the news first.

About Us

LEARN Perform The Art Police

Footprint Theatre is a touring community theatre group based around Pambula, in the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

We don’t have a ‘home theatre’ – instead you’ll find us doing street theatre, performing at outdoor events and festivals, doing readings and radio plays or staging theatre performances in country halls or outdoor venues around the south east region of NSW, Australia.

Mentoring and skills development in all aspects of theatre is very important to us and we run regular workshops and school holiday drama schools with local, regional and interstate tutors.

We love collaborating with other artists, other theatre groups, writers, musicians, choreographers, technicians and community organisations to make great theatre.

Are you:

  • A beginner willing to have a go?
  • A theatre practitioner willing to share your expertise?
  • An event organiser looking for a customised performance event?
  • A playwright looking for a group to workshop your play?
  • A performer or group touring in our area who needs local promotion, box office, technical or front of house crew?
