Welcome To The Players Theatre

Port Macquarie and The Hastings' Community Theatre for over 50 years


The Players Theatre Inc. owns and operates the Players Theatre. This superb, 230 seat venue not only provides first class entertainment for residents of the Port Macquarie and Hastings region, but enables the community to be involved and experience all facets of theatre- including acting, directing, set design, stage construction, make-up and costuming.

The ‘Players ‘ have been active for over 50 years, consistently staging 5-6 productions annually- ranging from drama, comedy, musical and pantomime.

The theatre is also available for hire to outside organisations and operates a Costume Hire Dept. boasting an extensive range of theatrical and party costumes for hire.

The operation of the Players Theatre relies on ticket sales, although, more recently, a substantial Government Grant allowed for a sprinkler system to be installed and smaller grants have provided funds for on-going structural improvements.
