Gumboot Theatre was formed in early 2020 in order to present the iconic Australian play Summer of the Seventeenth Doll by Ray Lawler, as part of the El-Arish centenary celebrations, but COVID arrived forcing rehearsals to cease. Later in 2020, when theatres were allowed to reopen, they started rehearsing another Australian play The Golden Legion of Cleaning Women, which was performed over one weekend in October 2020 at the El Arish RSL Memorial Hall. The event was an enormous success and demonstrated that there is a strong appetite for local theatre in the region.


In early 2021, they started rehearsing the murder mystery Lights, Camera, Action written by Brisbane Playwright, Angela Witcher. This was a dinner theatre style show where the murderer strikes, and the audience then get to quiz each character over dinner. The show was performed to sell-out audiences in Tully, El Arish, Cardwell, and Ravenshoe.


Get in early to purchase your tickets to Hotspots and Give Away and enjoy an evening of excellent theatre.
