Thomas Luke
Tom has been a part of KTC for a few years now after "The Gondoliers" being his first show. He is always ready to lend a helping hand onstage and off and brings a lot of experience to the committee. He recently came back from Canada where his passion for racing dogs lead him to train a 16 dog team. His growth from racing Pee-Wee teams, to then racing 3-5 Dog teams is a credit and shows his dedication & hard work. Even despite the lack of snow here in Kyneton, he has his skates on and is excited to help bring Kyneton into this new phase.



Nicholas Iliff
Nicholas has been involved in theatre since his first high school production in 2008. He started off working back stage, doing the sound design and operation until 2012 where he jumped onstage for the first time and loved it. In 2013 he joined KTC and hasn't looked back since. Nick has been involved with every show since then, either onstage or back to his roots and helping out backstage or with the sound design. Nick enjoys all aspects of theatre and is excited to be working with Kyneton Theatre company as we go on to bigger and better things in years to come.

Tayla Ham

My name is Tayla. I've been in and out of theatre since I was little but recently I've been much more involved with the community theatre company's everywhere between Ballarat, Bendigo Sunbury and Kyenton. I was cast in Beauty and the Beast that Kyenton was putting on prior to covid and I'm still disappointed that didn't go ahead. 
I've applied for secretary because I'd love to be able to help out kyenton theatre company in any way I can! I was secretary of the Bendigo Association of Pharmacy Students 2015 when I was at university, and I was on the BAPS committee every year I was at university. I've also been a big part in promotion, marketing and retention at SHP in Maryborough when they did Frankenstein A New Musical. 
I feel I'd be an excellent addition to the committee, and can't wait to offer everything I have to help KTC put of wonderful shows for the community.
