Crying Chair Theatre goes WILD!
Emma & Mel have been lucky enough to be invited onboard the production of Wild Thing by Suzanne Hawley playing at Flight Path Theatre. Emma is lighting up the stage & creating atmosphere as the light/sound operator, while Mel has been sorting things out & keeping everyone on their toes as the Stage Manager. What an honour to be part of this incredible production & what a ride!
'The Hope Song' spreads messages of love, & support all over the world.
After a successful season of 'The Hope Song' at Flight Path Theatre in 2019, it was evident to Director, Socratis Otto, that these stories needed a wider audience. When the world went into lockdown as a result of COVID-19, Socratis saw the need for those struggling with their mental health to know there is hope. He went on to create and produce a revised digital version of 'The Hope Song'. To view the online production click here.

After her incredibly emotional performance as the family matriarch in our last production, we are extremely excited to have the beautifully talented Christine Greenough working with us again.
Christine is swapping the bright lights of the stage for the Director's chair and we can't wait to begin work!
The Savages take their final bow after a sold out run.
Such a privilege to have the writer, Sandra Fairthorne, join the cast and Director for the encore.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the show, the actors and Crying Chair Theatre.
