As you can see there have been no updates since Christmas. You may be aware through Facebook that we have a new production happening. We’d like to invite you all to our new home at htg.org.au for our house-warming. There will be no new updates made to this site. Instead, please bookmark htg.org.au or better yet, us the subscriber form on that site for updates about all our theatrical exploits. 

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Chookas for Christmas from HTG

Here in the Theatre World, we’re hanging up our costumes and putting away our props and sets in favour of trees, presents, good company and a well earned rest.

In theatre we have a tradition that you don’t wish performers luck for a show.  In the formations of theatre there was much superstition in what happened on stage so to wish someone good luck was to open them up to being cursed.  This is where the term ‘break a leg’ gained its origins. In modern times, the term ‘Chookas’ has become a popular euphemism.

So in that vein, on behalf of the Highlands Theatre Group, I would like to wish you all Chookas for Christmas and Break a Leg in 2017.  We look forward to seeing you in our audiences, auditions and particularly as part of our productions in the New Year.
