The Company is self-supporting, relying on community support of
its activities for funding and talent. HVT encourages community
involvement and uses local talent predominantly in its productions.
Though its main focus is on theatrical productions, HVT also involves
itself in many other performance-related activities, such as variety
nights, concerts, talent quests, and its Festival of Carols.
It has tackled major and popular productions such as The Sound of Music,
My Fair Lady, The Wizard of Oz and Oliver!, as well as more challenging
dramas, comedies, and of, course, pantomimes.
Huon Valley Theatre has a keen interest in providing
opportunities for the talented youngsters in the Valley,
having staged many shows cast with and presented to the
Valley's youth. Its monthly Youth Drama Club involves
kids, helping them to develop all aspects of stagecraft.
