It all started with a big bang!

A great man once said the times they are a changing…and this continues to ring true for most places, including Sunshine.

Sunshine Community Theatre inc. trading as Powderkeg Players is a non-professional group of players based in the western suburbs of Victoria, Australia, just 15 mins out of Melbourne. We rehearse and perform at Dempster Park Hall, Phoenix Street, Sunshine.

We’re a friendly bunch of people and encourage anybody who wants a go at getting up on stage to come and audition. Or perhaps you might want to help out in the front or back and sometimes even in the middle (apart from audience members there’s sound & lighting).  Contact 0407802165

We perform different styles of plays each year be it drama, comedy or pantomime and everything in-between and are members of the Victorian Drama League and the Association of Community Theatre.
