Costume Hire and Sets

Need something for your next production?

The Launceston Players can provide a most extensive range of costumes from which to choose.

2019 program:  “1984” – May 2019
  “Picnic at Hanging Rock” – Sept. 2019

In May Launceston Players will be staging the original ‘big brother’ epic ‘1984’ which will be directed and staged with the same production team which brought you ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ last year. Megan Jolly and Darren Willmott will team up to bring George Orwell’s classic novel to the stage in a stunning adaptation which has become an International hit with theatre-goers.

In September, we welcome Peter Hammond back as a director with the classic Australian hit ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’. This is a story which defies explanation and this stage adaptation, with just 8 cast members playing multiple roles, will add to the mystery and intrigue already embedded in the runaway best-seller novel and the classic Australian film.

Who are the Launceston Players?

The Launceston Players Society is one of the oldest community theatre companies in Australia. Since 1926 it has had an unbroken record of operation in the Northern Tasmania community.

We are committed to supporting and encouraging talent and attracting new people to all aspects of theatre production.

We are renowned for an amazing range of costumes which, as a community service, can be borrowed by other theatre companies and community groups for a donation or by negotiation.

Over the years, the Players has staged everything from music hall to Shakespeare and continues to provide relevant and entertaining live theatre.
