70th birthday album

Kucom Theatre was established (as Mackay Community Theatre) in July 1947, and has been operating continuously ever since.

To mark the celebration of our 70th birthday in 2017, we are dedicating this page to the people, events and productions that have established Kucom as the premier community theatre group in the Mackay region.

If you have any photos, programs, posters, or newspaper articles that you would like to see included here, please contact us.
