Minear has directed productions for most all of the non-professional theatre companies of Adelaide and has been guiding light to the busy and popular suburban company of St Judes Players which is based at Brighton and commonly plays to full houses.
He was also in one of the first productions mounted in The Arts Theatre, Romanoff and Juliet which was directed by Ruby Litchfield, later Dame Ruby.
At 81, he is still working in the theatre.
