Noosa Arts Theatre is a community theatre whose aim is to encourage people to become involved in all aspects of theatrical work. The theatre usually stages five productions each year with a mix of drama, comedy and musicals. It also runs a national One-Act Playwriting Competition which culminates in the 3 finalists being performed in the One-Act Play Festival in June, which is part of the Noosa Longweekend.
The first constitution of Noosa Arts Theatre was adopted in 1971 and the theatre was incorporated on 17 April 1986. It leases land from the Queensland Government but owns its theatre premises at 163 Weyba Rd Noosaville.
In 2012 it undertook a major renovation of the theatre to upgrade its toilet and dressing room facilities and its foyer and courtyard. The theatre is air conditioned and has tiered, comfortable seating for 120 people.
David Williamson is the patron of the theatre.
