Creativity & Community, Coming Together

Twenty-Five years ago MATES Theatre Society was started by a group of actors, singers and their families who had a love of theatre and wanted somewhere to perform.  In the early days, they used many local venues until they chose the Birkdale School of Arts Hall on Birkdale Road at Birkdale as their home for most productions.  This allowed MATES to develop a history in the area as well as providing the ease of storing equipment and props in a familiar space.

Since that time, from a small, local presence we have been building a reputation that attracts new patrons from local areas and all over Brisbane.  We have grown from scheduling one-night performances to sell-out five night seasons.

In 2015 MATES Theatre Society merged with another local community group, Theatre Genesis who performed a variety of shows at the Redlands Museum and MATES Theatre Genesis was born.

Our members strive to present a professional-style show for the Redlands.  We have many talented members, whether in acting or in associated ways such as set building, management, lighting and sound techniques, costuming, publishing, directing, working ‘front of house’ or back stage, singing, dancing and advertising.  There is always something interesting and different for members to do.  The scope for learning new skills is huge, and members are encouraged to become involved in these, with an experienced member available to pass on knowledge and share the load.
