To create a theatre company dedicated to producing the plays of William Shakespeare in a way that was relevant and exciting to Australian audiences.

Through incredible touring productions and education programmes, Bell Shakespeare is using Shakespeare’s universal insights to bring inspiration and truth to minds living in an uncertain world. And, of course, it is connecting beauty and art with imaginations of all ages.

The Princess Theatre in Launceston is a beautiful old proscenium arch theatre built in 1911 by a vaudeville entrepreneur, Marino Lucas. The local newspaper at the time was rapturous in its praise. "The dome and ceiling are a dream of loveliness". The auditorium still retains the original dome and pressed tin ceiling. The façade and foyers were renovated in 1939 in the art deco style giving an interesting mix of architectural styles. On opening night in August 1911 the backstage area was still to be completed so silent films were shown. This proved to be so lucrative that the Theatre operated as a cinema until 1970. In that year the Launceston City Council bought the Princess for the bargain price of $71,000. The Theatre opened as a live venue to great fanfare on November 16 1970 with a gala performance by the Australian Ballet. The theatre seats 1065. A more recent addition to performing arts spaces in Launceston was the Earl Arts Centre which opened in 1993. Located at the back of the Princess the Earl is a black box theatre with the most common seating configuration accommodating 191.

Australian Digital Concert Hall (ADCH) connects artists and communities everywhere through music and technology. Launched in March 2020, it was conceived to support the music industry during COVID-19, enabling artists to continue their profession and earn an income through ticketed livestreaming. It soon became apparent that there was a strong need for digital accessibility beyond COVIID, with a vast demographic unable to attend venues due to health, caring responsibilities, distance or socioeconomic circumstances. ADCH has since gone national, presenting almost 600 live broadcasts, showcasing over 2,000 musicians and generating more than $3 million in revenue for the sector, with all box office proceeds going directly to the artists. It now seeks to build a national platform for the arts, collaborating with numerous venues and performers to shine a spotlight on the full spectrum of Australian artistry, from Hobart to Darwin and everywhere in between.
