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

Strike me Lucky! We can welcome you back!

Throughout the lockdown and the long winter months we have been plotting the way to welcome you back – and here it is! A Dinky-Di Double-Bill of two Aussie one-act plays, directed by Bronwyn Chapple, opens on 6 November.

Ian Austin's Down Came a Jumbuck and Lissa Benyon's The Margarine Conspiracy are gentle spoofs, one taking a light-hearted look at political image-building, the other at environmental worriers (sic). 

We think its the ideal programme to welcome you back! And because your health, safety and comfort are our highest priority, our Covid-Safe Plan for approved foyer, auditorium and seating arrangements will allow you to sit back with confidence and enjoy your return to ‘live’ theatre. 

Seats are limited so book early!

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....

"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"
