Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre looks set to reach another milestone next week, celebrating the 50,000th ticket sale just 18 months after it opened.
Could you be the lucky person to purchase this ticket and win two double ticket vouchers to the show of your choice?
The first 49,000 tickets were purchased by patrons from as far away as Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, Launceston and even one from Kent in the United Kingdom.
However, most of the tickets have been purchased by Dubbo and the surrounding region patrons—attesting to the long-awaited lifestyle need for a Theatre.
“DRTCC has quickly cemented itself in the cultural fabric of Dubbo and the region. Of the 55 touring shows presented so far, 50 have recently played in capital cities,” Dubbo Mayor Mathew Dickerson said.
“Many DRTCC patrons have returned after having such an enjoyable first experience and they usually bring their friends and family along with them. Well-known performers such as Carl Barron and David Campbell have also helped attract many who had not previously been to the DRTCC but now for many of these a regular night out at the Theatre is becoming a part of their family and social life.”
However, reaching the 50,000 ticket sales milestone is just the beginning in a long line of things to come. With the launch of the DRTCC’s 2012 Season of Shows on Sunday 20 November, Cr Dickerson promises that the people of Central West NSW have only experienced the tip of the iceberg and will continue to get the high quality and range of shows to cater for all tastes and ages.

Rain, hail or shine these youths were gung ho on making sure the Dubbo Skate Park was in tip-top shape for today’s visit from Newton’s Nation.
Some of these boys take their skating very seriously, for others it’s more about having fun and they are at the Skate Park “nearly every day”, so Council’s Youth Development Officer Jason Yelverton was not surprised when they offered him a helping hand yesterday.
“I came down to sweep the grass around the edges and just make sure the Skate Park was looking great for Newton’s Nation when these boys offered to pick up a broom,” Mr Yelverton said.
“They spend a lot of time down here and so they take great pride in the Skate Park, which is plain to see with so many hands on deck.”
Newton’s Nation, the travelling tour of BMX and scooter professionals, will be at the Dubbo Skate Park today from 10am to 2pm. Read More...

The movement of agricultural and livestock produce west of the Newell highway will benefit from a trial road train route on the Narromine-Eumungerie Road and Collie Road during the next 12 months.
Dubbo City and Gilgandra Shire councils have approved their respective sections of these roads for B-double trucks and road trains and with the upcoming harvest it’s a decision that is expected to result in gains for transport efficiency and reduced costs for farmers.
Dubbo City Council’s Director Technical Services Stewart McLeod said there were some concerns opening the Main Road 572 between Narromine and Eumungerie would encourage interstate heavy vehicle traffic that would bypass Dubbo.
However, he said the 12-month trial period would allow adequate assessment of the impacts on the local road network.
“For some time now the Narromine-Eumungerie Road has been a road train route but only for that section within Narromine Shire Council from the Mitchell Highway north to the intersection of Collie Road,” Mr McLeod said.
“Dubbo City Council and Gilgandra Shire Council have had extensive discussion about the prospect of approving road train access on these roads which provide a vital link west of the Newell Highway and we will be trialling a road train route for 12 months.”
The trial period for both roads will conclude at the end of 2012 while a further assessment will be undertaken prior to this to determine the feasibility of permanent road train access. Read More...
