Sunnybank Theatre Group is one of the southside's hidden treasures. It's been running since 1965 and the building hasn't changed much within that time, but it is presented very sweetly. Fairy lights, shade sails and well-kept gardens adorn the back patio, while stepping into the theatre itself feels like a step back into Brisbane's past.
This is non-professional theatre, but the quality is very good and it is evident how much the cast, crew and committee members care about the theatre and its productions. Their enthusiasm gives you a real sense that you're supporting the community and our local artists.
Sunnybank Theatre Group shows five plays per year, which run for about 3 weeks each and which are all very reasonably priced. Their fully licensed bar sells a range of drinks and snacks and after the show you are welcome to stick around to chat with the cast and director.
If you're after a quaint, affordable, and entertaining evening, then Sunnybank Theatre Group is the place!
