Each member of BTG pays an annual subscription; most of this amount is taken up by the costs of the group’s Insurances which make sure members are covered in their BTG activities. Another part of it goes towards the producing & circulating the group’s monthly letter. The majority of finances come from income generated by the group’s productions.
Where does BTG meet?
At the ‘Crete Street Theatre’ on the corner of Kent and Crete Streets, Beenleigh. BTG is very fortunate to have the use of such excellent theatre facilities which are part of the Beenleigh Community Centre Complex built by the Albert Shire Council & officially opened in December 1993. BTG invested heavily in this project as an alternative to a separate venue originally scheduled to be built on the site that now sports the “Beenleigh Marketplace” Shopping Complex
