Thank you

Thank you to our members, writers, actors, directors, producers, crew members, audiences, tutors, students and sponsors for your enthusiasm and support these last 10 years. It’s been a hoot!

At a Special General Meeting on 30 June 2019 Footprint Theatre members voted in favour of voluntary cancellation of the registration of the association Footprint Theatre Inc.

Official voluntary deregistration occurred on 8 November 2019 through Fair Trading NSW. In accordance with the constitution and Fair Trading rules, remaining assets have been shared between Theatre Onset Inc in Bega and Far South Film Inc.

This website will shortly be archived as a subdomain of professional theatre company, so former participants will still be able to access photos, material for CVs, etc from there.

About Us

LEARNPerformThe Art Police

Footprint Theatre was a touring community theatre group based around Pambula, in the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia between 2009 and 2019.

Footprint performed 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.

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

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


Footprint Theatre was founded on 26 March 2009 at a meeting in the Pambula Town Hall in Pambula NSW. It became an incorporated association on 27 May 2009. The founding committee of 2009 comprised Lis Shelley, Wilma Donovan, Karl Auer, Robert Buck and Peter O’Brien.

When we started in 2009 we wanted to raise the bar of local community theatre, bring theatre to more isolated parts of the region and eventually aim to have a professional theatre company in the Bega Valley after 10 years.

Footprint offered many workshops and toured productions to members and the general public as well as running annual holiday drama and film workshops for youth in that time. Having achieved its main goals, its members decided it was time to move on to the next stage.

After 10 successful years, Footprint Theatre voted to voluntarily cancel its registration as an association on 30 June 2019.
