ILT One Act Play Festival

The longest running drama festival in the Southern Hemisphere!

theatre_at_nightWelcome to the website of The Ipswich Little Theatre Society.

Almost all of our shows in 2014 sold out before opening and our 2015 productions will go like hot cakes too. Find out more about our 2015 Programme. If you are currently a member or wish to become a member why not renew or apply for your membership online as well.

Since 1946 ILT has been entertaining audiences with all types of quality theatre. Set in the beautiful grounds adjacent to Queens Park, the heritage-listed Incinerator Theatre designed by Walter Burley-Griffin is an intimate and unique venue.

With its open courtyard and bar facilities, it offers the opportunity for not only a night of theatre but also a very pleasant social event.




All auditions and readings (unless otherwise advised) are held in the Jean Pratt Building which is part of the ILT complex at 7.30pm. Information about each play can be found below.


ILT will release its full 2016 programme soon. In the meantime we need to get the word out about auditions for our first play for 2016. 


Season 1 -

Having a Wonderful Time, Wish You Were Her - Audition date 26 October 2015.

Cast Required 

3 Males, 3 Females - ages 20-60


This wild bedroom farce involves infidelity, double standards, midnight rendezvous and a hungry bear. Danny and Kathy halt their night of sultry passion when Kathy reveals she is dating another man. Paul and Jennifer play a mad slapstick scene of frustration because she is reluctant to cheat on her husband. Bill and Mary, a couple about to celebrate their twenty ninth wedding anniversary are at odds: Mary yearns for a night of passion while Bill yearns to be left alone. To make matters more interesting, Paul's best friend is Danny who is married to Jennifer who is having an affair with Paul who is dating Kathy who is Danny's mistress and Jennifer's sister. In Act Two they all weekend at Bill and Mary's!


Our whole 2016 season included audition dates will be released by the end of October!
