John Wood, of Blue Heelers fame, said he was amazed by the depth of performance ability in Canberra and NSW towns.
The veteran actor is a patron of the CAT awards for amateur theatre in the Canberra area which are held in February.
"The thing that you realise the first time you see it is the immense amount of talent there is in all these towns that doesn’t get any expression beyond amateur productions," he said.
Mr Wood is in rehearsal for the Broadway musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, opening at Sydney’s Royal Theatre 24 October.
