HealthPlay – Six Degrees of Diabetes – by Alan Hopgood

In conjunction with South East Arts’ SWELL Program (Arts and Health) and Bay Street Productions, Footprint Theatre will be presenting “Six Degrees of Diabetes” by Alan Hopgood, directed by Lis Shelley at several venues in the Bega Valley in early August 2018. Following each performance there will be a Q&A session with a panel of experts to generate a discussion on the issues presented in the play. Aimed at health professionals, sufferers, carers and the general publIc, this is a chance to not only see some great theatre but also to learn something that could save your life…or your mate’s.

Footprint is currently seeking male actors for this play – auditions will be held on Sunday 27 May:

10.00 – 11.00am at the Funhouse, 3 Hill St Bega
3.00 – 4.00pm at the Pambula Town Hall, 13 Quondola St Pambula

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?
