MISSION STATEMENT
Willoughby Theatre Company is passionate about musical theatre and is committed to producing shows that are professional in execution and which will entertain and excite our audience. The company strives to be a major and essential contributor to the cultural life of the community.

HISTORY
Founded in 1957, Willoughby Theatre Company Inc. is one of Australia's leading theatre companies. Operating on a not-for-profit basis, we were established to provide quality theatre for the communities of Willoughby and surrounding areas.

From humble beginnings as The Fellowship Players in 1957, the company has developed and matured. In 1960 the name was changed to Willoughby Players and in 1969 took on a new persona as Willoughby Musical Society, a name that became synonymous with quality theatre of an exceptional standard. The progress to Incorporation took place in 1987. In 2006 we were pleased to launch a new image and name - Willoughby Theatre Company Inc.
