The Papua New Guinea plane crash that claimed the life of nine Australians has another tragic theatre link, with community theatre worker Euan Comrie amongst the dead.
Euan Comrie was en route to walk the Kokoda Track as part of a tribute to his World War II-serving grandfather.
WAAPA graduate and musical theatre actor Matthew Leonard was also killed in the crash, which happened on Tuesday.
Comrie was the Chairperson of MOaRTZ Theatre, which was founded in 1999 by a group of arts-minded people who wanted to develop, support and encourage a diverse range of arts and cultural activities within the Moe community.
Comrie was in his 30’s.
