COPE CREATIVE & DE JAGER PRODUCTIONS – COMMUNITY MUSICAL

Adding to the arts landscape of the Sunshine Coast has been an important drive for Riley Cope and Marina de Jager, two local creatives.

From auditions to curtain calls, theatre is a joyous experience that builds community and culture. Adding to the arts landscape of the Sunshine Coast has been an important drive for Riley Cope and Marina de Jager, two local creatives. Having contributed to various projects that have propelled the Sunshine Coast arts scene forward over the last 15 years, the pair teamed up in 2022 for their first full scale production – Little Shop of Horrors as part of the Anywhere Festival on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane. In 2023 the pair produced Grease to sell out crowds and had a cast and crew of 70 people. Passionate about creating quality full scale musicals right here on the Sunshine Coast, the company aspires to provide a professional platform for community members to develop their craft locally. Marina and Riley are two artistic entrepreneurs and have successfully produced all their works with no formal funding or support. To continue producing high quality work, the team now need your support to take things to the next level.

Be part of giving the Sunshine Coast community the opportunity to experience professional standard theatre right here on the Coast as well as forming a collective for locals to develop their craft. Donations big or small will make an incredible difference and shine a light on local talent. All the world’s a stage and with your donation, even the Sunshine Coast.

Donations are tax-deductible, playing a crucial role in bringing professional-standard, elaborate productions to life. Join us in promoting artistic expression and making a lasting impact on the local arts community!

We would like to thank every person who has supported and contributed to our vision of an inclusive arts community on the Coast. We value your continued belief and support – we couldn’t do it without you!
