Presenting award-winning, quality drama to Adelaide audiences since 1972


It is with great regret that we announce the cancellation of the final two performances of WICKED SISTERS scheduled for Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March 2020.  We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause. To those of you who have already purchased tickets, these will be refunded as soon as possible. Please refer any queries to contactstirlingplayers@gmail.com.  

Our wonderfully talented ensemble, Tracey Korsten, Petra Schulenberg, April Stuart and Deb Walsh, directed so beautifully by Megan Dansie, worked so hard over many months, and we thank them and the entire crew for bringing this play to life in the most amazing way. 

We are grateful that we have had most of our season. Our hearts go out to our fellow TASA Members and other companies who have not been so fortunate. 

Once this difficult time has passed The Stirling Players will be back on stage again, and we will look forward to seeing you at the theatre!


At our Annual General meeting on 15 February 2020,  insufficient nominations were received to form a commitee for 2020, placing a cloud over our future. The existing Committte agreed to carry on in Caretaker mode until a Special Meeting is held on 23 April at which nominations will be called for again. Three members of the current committee will be continuing. 

We decided to take the brave step of going public with our situation. Since then, this news has galvanised the community into a discussion of how important companies like ours are to the wider Adelaide theatre scene.

If you, or any of your theatre friends, are interested in being actively involved in renewing The Stirling Players and taking us into the future, this is your chance! Email your interest or queries to contactstirlingplayers@gmail.com 

In the meantime come and see WICKED SISTERS! Runs weekends until 21 March. Another great production from us. With more to come...

The Stirling Players on film! 

In a first for The Stirling Players, the evolution of one of our productions has been documented on film. Flinders University student, Sailesh Sharma, tracked the director, cast and crew of CELEBRATION for many months. The result is A Sterling Performance, in which our lovely theatre also has a feature role.

We congratulate Sailesh on producing such a terrific insight into community theatre and the people who help it to thrive. So sit back and relax and watch it here....


HEISENBERG cast announced

The Stirling Players and director, Aldo Longobardi, wish to thank all the actors who auditioned recently for HEISENBERG. We are pleased to announce that Kirsty Haigh and Andrew Horwood have been cast in the roles of Georgie and Alex, and we look forward to seeing them on stage in September 2020. Read more here.... 









"Petra Schulenburg... deliver(s) a powerhouse performance as Meridee. She commands the stage at all times, and her final climactic moments are a masterclass in authentic character work." 

"April Stuart as Judith... soars in the second act"

"Tracey Korsten as Hester is excellent"

"Deborah Walsh as Lydia...shines when Lydia’s deeper sadness is explored"
