“Cooma Little Theatre was founded in 1955 and has been active in the Monaro region ever since,” he said.
“As well as providing a fantastic local platform for amateur theatre, it enjoys a wide audience from larger towns and small communities.
“Each year, Cooma Little Theatre stages at least four of its own high quality productions in a wide variety of genres including comedy, drama, variety show and even pantomime.”

“Regional NSW has a diverse and thriving arts and cultural scene, and the Government is proud to support regional artists who are making valuable creative contributions to their local communities,” he said.
"Our support for the Cooma Little Theatre is part of our commitment to ensure people can experience a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences, no matter where they live."
