At  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. This website will shortly be archived.

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!

About Us

LEARNPerformThe 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.


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