What an amazing year we have ahead: four world premieres from the best of Australian writers; an exciting adaptation of an award-winning French play; four comedy classics from master playwrights and two gripping international dramas to keep you talking.
If we cast our eyes back to 1958, it’s hard to imagine the small group of actors performing Tennessee Williams at the Cammeray Children’s Library would be the beginning of Australia’s longest running professional theatre company. But the common goal that drew the talented theatricals together ‘to make quality theatre with ensemble values’ is still what defines and inspires us 60 years later.
We couldn’t be happier to celebrate our 60th anniversary with you this year and share some very special events. I know you will find something you like and when you do, tell us about it – because without you, there is no us.
Mark Kilmurry, Artistic Director
