Mt Cotton Drama Group is a small community theatre group in the Redlands (south-east Queensland). The group has been performing plays in the local community hall since 1974.

We perform all sorts of theatre: comedy, drama, one-act plays, mystery, contemporary, musicals and the famous home-grown plays (those we write ourselves).

We have a ball and so do our audiences. If you are interested in acting or helping out backstage in the plays performed by Mount Cotton Drama Group, please contact us (Contact page). We will notify you when casting or general meetings will be held. New members are most welcome (minimum age 16 years). We also sell our opening nights to community and charity fund-raising groups. Here's an opportunity for you to have a good time and make some money as well.

We now also offer Gift Vouchers, which are good for 12 months (or three productions, in the case of cancellation). So now you can gift a play to people without just handing them cash!

The next play is “Afraid of the Dark” by James Reach. It’s a comedy needing 6 men and 7 women between their early 20s and late 50s.

SYNOPSIS: Chauncey and Lillums Stone go to her aunt’s mansion for their honeymoon. Chauncey admits to his new bride that he’s always been afraid of the dark—when the lights go out. And when they come back on, the couple find themselves surrounded by fantastic characters in the midst of a spy plot—in a supposedly unoccupied house!

Auditions will be held at the Mount Cotton Hall shed on 28 January at 7:00 pm. Those who want to audition but cannot attend that evening are encouraged to contact director Sean White on 0412 196 024 to arrange an alternative time for a reading.

Performances will be on 24 and 25 April, and 1, 2, 8, and 9 May, also potentially Sunday 3 May.

We need cast AND crew so please all feel welcome!
