Arcos 2020 Update

Refurbishment Banner

We are excited to finally reveal what is happening at Arcadians for the remainder of 2020.

Finalising our mainstage season will be Stephen Sondheim’s SWEENEY TODD directed by Malcolm White in August 2020.

This will be followed by the Arcadians Children’s Theatre production of XANADU Jr in September 2020.

From October 2020, The Miner’s Lamp Theatre will be closed for the remainder of the year as we undergo some major refurbishments to the stage area. This will include a new lighting grid, curtains, backstage legs, stage, a new movable proscenium and more! No expense has been spared to give the Miner’s Lamp a BRAND NEW stage area to benefit our productions, performers, crews, members and patrons for many more years to come.



The committee and production team have decided to withdraw this production from the 2019 season. Due to lack of auditions booked we think it be best to withdraw the production now before auditions commence. The production team need a cast of 40 to do this musical justice and unfortunately we are far below that number. However it’s not all bad news, THE KING & I production team will still be forging ahead to create a concert in the time slot left vacant and we are looking forward to supporting this and seeing what they create.


With the exciting inclusion of the massive musical hit MAMMA MIA! we have had to make some changes regarding the rest of the 2019 season. Our production of BLOOD BROTHERS directed by Sue Causer will be moved to the November time slot (8 – 23 November) which means we have made the decision to remove the November production of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS from this season.

Both DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS and THE KING & I will be considered for the 2020 season which the new committee will commence working on after the AGM.


Stay tuned as we will be announcing the production team for this production soon and further details on auditions to follow. To be the first to know, keep an eye out on our Facebook and Instagram page.


We love this show … it’s perfect … no change needed. It opens in just 2 weeks so book your ticket now!
