IN THE BEGINNING (1992)

Producing an annual outdoor Shakespeare event for North Queensland was pioneered by Jean-Pierre Voos, who directed and produced the first event with his professional company, Tropic Line in 1992.  As an adjunct of JCU's Theatre Course, Twelfth Night was presented in promenade around the Vincent Campus of the University. 

 

THE QUARRY YEARS (1995-1997)
It would take some years for the event to gather momentum but in 1995, Jean-Pierre Voos staged The Tempest in the old city Quarry.  Macbeth & Romeo and Juliet would follow however, the floods dubbed "The Day of Noah" in January 1998 destroyed the access roads to the quarry, preventing further use of the area and leaving Shakespeare Under the Stars without a home for 2 years. 

THE KISSING POINT ERA (2000 - 2001)

Jean-Pierre secured the use of historic Kissing Point within the old Jezzine Army Barracks as the next home of Shakespeare Under the Stars.  With sea-views and open skies, the new venue proved a hit with both audiences and cast alike.  However, the September 11 attacks put the world's defence forces on full alert and Jezzine Barracks was closed to the public in 2001.
