The Blackheath Theatre Company was formed early in 2016 with generous public support from the local community. The company is a proud affiliate of the Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre. Members owe a debt of gratitude to Sabine Erika and Myra Hutton who were the driving forces behind the group’s formation and who continue to play active parts in its programs of activity. Over a ten year period, they had previously led the Oroya Players, a theatre group for people with disabilities.

The company particularly wishes to acknowledge Peta Hammon, a long time leading citizen of the Blue Mountains who has accepted the role of our patron.  It also applauds the generosity of BTC’s leading benefactor for 2019, Larraine Home, who has been instrumental in providing a vital financial boost for the company during its present program of expansion.

The stated aims of the Blackheath Theatre Company are:
a) to establish a widely recognised centre of excellence for community theatre, based in Blackheath
b) to establish a centre for personal growth in the primary theatrical arts
