FOTT is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to advancing the performing arts in Townsville. All people involved are volunteers. It was formed over twenty years ago.
At each Civic Theatre performance volunteers open “Coffee Corner” where people can have a tea or coffee with a biscuit for a very reasonable price.
FOTT organises six concerts each year at Pimlico Performing Arts Centre. The aim for these shows is to:
(a) Provide an entertaining concert at a very reasonable cost at a time when the older members of the theatre-going community can attend – Sunday afternoons.
(b) Provide an opportunity and encouragement for young and up-coming performers to appear in front of a live audience.
(c) Mix in with a number of talented local performers towards a high quality variety concert.
FOTT is a major supplier of trophies for the Townsville Eisteddfod each year and a significant sponsor of the Festival of One Act Plays, providing trophies and two bursaries for young actors to attend a theatre summer school in Brisbane.
FOTT will also provide assistance to other performing artists and organisations such as the Country Music Association.
Produces variety concerts 6 times per year (which includes a free Seniors’ Week concert) at Pimlico Performing Arts Centre, Pimlico High School, Fulham Rd, Pimlico.
