The Story of JUTE
JUTE came into being in 1992 when three passionate theatre makers living in Cairns met and creative sparks began to fly. The three founding members of JUTE are Kathryn Ash, Suellen Maunder and Susan Prince. JUTE’s first production launched International Womens’ Day in March 1993 at the height of summer in the unairconditioned arts centre (shed!). The work was fiery, raw and unique in the region…..it was an instant success!
Staff & Board
The Board of Directors meets regularly to oversee the strategic direction of the company. The board is made up of respected entrepreneurial business people drawn from inside and outside of Cairns who know that the arts are essential to a rich, vibrant society. They each bring their significant skills and networks to the company.
The current board members (December 2016) are: Gill Townsend (Chair), Arabella Kullack (Secretary), Michelle Champion, Tim Cooke, Greg Jensen, Saurav Kataria, Gillian Mailman, Suellen Maunder and Karyn Weller.
Theatre is for everyone! If you are coming to JUTE for the first time, this is where you can find information about parking and the facilities so you know what to expect from your theatre experience.
