Bushfire Recovery Fundraiser

As part of the long recovery process for the Dereel community after the bushfire last March, the Dereel Community would like to invite you, your families, friends and networks to CAPTAIN CAT'S THEATRE - a musical play by the community for the community.

An original play, Captain Cat's Theatre is a comedy based around 1880 and features one of the last bushrangers. All cast, crew and production supporters are local community members or have strong links to the Dereel community, and have volunteered their time and talents to provide the wider community with some respite from the bushfire recovery process (Dereel's as well as other surrounding fire affected communities) and the coming summer.

In addition, all profits from Captain Cat's Theatre will go back into the Recovery Process to help support other community development initiatives.

Please consider supporting this important cause by coming along to one of the five shows, by sharing this information through your networks, or by an offer to help in an aspect of the production. To find out more, visit the website at
