OUR HISTORY – THE LAST TWELVE YEARS
In the first 5 years we grew to become one of Melbourne’s most prolific independent theatre companies. We have often produced more work than the MTC and The Malthouse. By 2011 we were touring internationally in Europe and Asia. As our public profile expanded, so too did the interest from schools.
Over the last 7 years we have become one of the biggest Theatre in Education providers in Victoria. Each year we offer programs for 10-20 different texts to over than 100 schools and we are in high demand, often having to create waiting lists for peak times. The significance of our work has been acknowledged with the support of the Department of Education and Training in Victoria from 2015 – 2017.
In 2018, for the first time our Theatre in Education programs began to cross state and international lines – we toured at the invitation of the Queensland Arts Council in the Youth Touring Program and created virtual workshops at the request of schools studying English in China.
