Friends of Queens Park Theatre
The Friends of the Queens Park Theatre was inaugurated shortly after the opening of the Theatre in 1982. The Geraldton Town Council, as it was then known, called for some interested community members to form a group to support the Theatre. Throughout the years the Friends group has provided over $60,000 to the Theatre by way of equipment, suppers and sponsorship of shows. Considering the income of the Friends is solely reliant upon memberships, this is a reflection of the dedication of the Committee over the years.
In November 2007, the Friends celebrated the 25th Silver Jubilee of the Theatre with a joyful grand gathering of Friends. In March 2012 the Friends marked the 30th Anniversary of the QPT with a “Pearl Celebration Dinner”: 85 guests, entertained by Mia Royce and Co – Josh Crothers and Chris Budhan – catered by Posh, all in the magnificently decorated lower foyer of the QPT, decked out with pearls and fairy lights.
The community continues to show their support for the endeavours of the QPT Club Committee, especially their “Pizza Wine & Film Nights” started in 2010. This innovative format of cinema evenings includes two films with pizza and a glass of wine prior to the first feature and home-made soups served in between the 2 movies. This has conjured crowds of over 350 patrons, spurned an Australia Day Breakfast nomination and set the theatre with a happy buzz of international cinema lovers.
