March 2016
Welcome to the new look Three River Theatre newsletter for members and supporters!

2016 is off to a ripping start.  We've just had our first play reading of the year, our AGM and also our first "hosting" of Launceston's Theatre Drinks - many thanks to everyone who's attended.

The AGM, held on the 16th of March, was a great chance to celebrate and review all the work undertaken by the company over the course of last year.  Be sure to read Stan's 2015 President's Report, and, for the first time, AGM minutes are online here.  Our Treasurer, Cathy Lawrence, reported on our financial situation, and we're healthy! - particularly after the profit-making run of Disclosed, which is no mean feat, given that it was a season of "new Tasmanian theatre".

A 'newish oldish' committee was elected and your committee for 2016 are:
Stan Gottschalk (President), Beth Geoghegan (Vice President), Cathy Lawrence (Treasurer), Stuart Loone (Secretary), Kellie Constable, Ian Dix, Cameron Hindrum, Rebecca Phillips and Pauline Robson.

Immediately following the AGM, members were treated to a reading of Frost on the Rose: a poignant portrait of Lady Jane Grey - the "Nine Days Queen", directed by Beth Geoghegan.  The audience was very appreciative of the heartfelt work and it has kicked off our program of rehearsed Coffee House Play Readings in terrific fashion.

A further two readings are scheduled for 2016: one on Wed 18 May and another on Wed 20 July.

In other news, plans are well and truly underway for this year's major production: Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose, which will be directed by Stan Gottschalk, with assistance from Stuart Loone.  We last produced this show in 1986 - 30 years ago (nearly to the month!).  You can see some of the vintage pictures on our website.   More details of our 2016 plans are below.

See you at the theatre soon!
