Bell Shakespeare

With little more than an audacious idea, Bell Shakespeare began its remarkable journey in 1990. That idea? To create a theatre company dedicated to producing the plays of William Shakespeare in a way that was relevant and exciting to Australian audiences. But in the process, Bell Shakespeare has gone further than its visionary founder John Bell could ever have hoped. It has, quite literally, become a brave teacher in the ‘school of life’. 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. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2010, Bell Shakespeare has a history rich with legends of the stage; a creative development arm, Mind’s Eye, which ensures its artistic vibrancy; theatre, education and community programmes characterised by unrivalled national reach and impact; and a loyal and passionate audience that has made the Company that began in a circus tent into a national icon.

Jetty Memorial Theatre Coffs Harbour City Council

Coffs Harbour's Jetty Memorial Theatre was built in 1927, opening with a gala social evening and dance. In 1930, the theatre was leased as a cinema - until the late 1970s. The theatre was managed by a community-based committee from the 1980's until 2003, which, through its members' hard work, developed a community venue for the cultural arts and live theatre. The Jetty Memorial Theatre reopened on 15 October 2003 after a $1.6 million refurbishment program. The project won a Highly Commended Award at the inaugural Local Government Cultural Awards. The auditorium has a proscenium stage, a seating capacity of 249, 151 are tiered and 98 are movable stalls seating.

Proserpine Entertainment Centre

The Proserpine Entertainment Centre (PEC) was the heart and soul of Proserpine, but the building was extensively damaged during Cyclone Debbie. The rebuild began in late 2020, and is proudly funded by the Australian Government through the Building Better Regions Fund and Queensland Reconstruction Authority. It aims to bring the broader Whitsunday community together for functions, events and performances. The new facility will provide 380 tiered seats in a retractable seating system and the design provides flexibility for up to 500 people seated indoors and outdoors as a multi-purpose use facility. The open plan design allows the performance hall to connect seamlessly with a landscaped external space so that the capacity of the building can be further increased for outdoor events and annual ceremonies like Anzac Day .

Theatre Royal

A Dream of a Theatre - Hobart’s Theatre Royal was officially opened on 8th March, 1837. It offered its original patrons entertainment ranging from music hall to cockfights and could even help to quench their thirsts at The Shades – a seedy tavern that operated beneath the auditorium with its own entrance into the theatre pit. Today the Theatre Royal is not just a piece of Tasmania’s history but a living centre for the performing arts. It presents a comprehensive annual subscription programme as well as a wide variety of productions staged by visiting professional and local amateur companies. Dubbed by Noel Coward "a dream of a theatre", the Theatre Royal is Australia’s oldest working theatre and one of its most beautiful treasures. The Theatre Royal in Hobart is Australia’s oldest theatre and the only example of Victorian "bijou" style remaining in this country. The Theatre is an integral part of Hobart’s artistic community and can offer sponsors opportunities to gain exposure and build loyalty in a market that is consistent with a range of consumer and industry groups. The Theatre Royal aims to provide a high quality cultural venue for the presentation of the performing arts and r

ACT - Natimuk

ACT-Natimuk, a not for profit arts organisation, is primarily known for running an innovative regional arts festival - the Nati Frinj Biennale (Nati- being the local vernacular for Natimuk). Every two years, since 2000, work of quality and originality are created and presented as part of this artist driven festival. Over time the work has developed its own unique identity and style. Collectively, the work created is audacious, original, raw and edgy. The successful work created for each Festival that is tourable and compatible with the brand is then added to the Made In Natimuk ‘Dance Card’ and available to be selected by presenters for their particular event/community/venue. Much of the work has a framework that can be customised to include relevant content, local artists and community input from the locale of the presenter. All the work has been road tested and is led by professional artists

Australian Digital Concert Hall

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.

Monash University Performing Arts Centres (MPAC)

Welcome to Monash University Performing Arts Centres, your home for extraordinary live experiences. We acknowledge and pay respects to the Elders and Traditional Owners of the land on which our venues stand. In 1968 the bold and beautiful Alexander Theatre first opened its doors at Monash University’s Clayton campus, signalling a new era of performance in the south east. Around the campus, new suburbs were being planned, built and settled across the open orchards, fields and market gardens of Melbourne’s eastern fringe. The city was expanding. In 1971, the Robert Blackwood Hall was built to serve the growing community. This 1598-seat venue holds a special place in the hearts of many Melburnians. Perhaps you performed on stage in one of thousands of school and community performances held here, or sat as a proud parent in the audience at your child’s graduation. The 426-seat George Jenkins Theatre, located at the Peninsula Campus, was built in 1973 and became part of Monash University in the 1990s and hosts a wide variety of performance styles. This includes local performing arts groups, touring professional companies, corporate, educational and multicultural groups. I

His Majesty's Theatre

One of Australia’s most sophisticated and stylish venues, His Majesty’s Theatre has been entertaining audiences for 100 years. With visiting casts including Sir Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh and Katharine Hepburn, the theatre has also played host to world-renowned touring companies including Ireland’s Abbey Theatre and The Royal Shakespeare Company. His Majesty's Theatre was named after the reigning British monarch of 1904, King Edward VII. It is believed to be the only remaining working Edwardian theatre in Australia, and is one of only two remaining His Majesty's Theatre's in the world. When the Western Australian government purchased the building in 1977, the theatre was in much need of major structural improvements. It took two years and over $11 million to refurbish and restore the building to the modern, yet aesthetically traditional facility it is today. His Majesty’s Theatre is the performing home of the West Australian Ballet and West Australian Opera and celebrated its centenary in 2004.

Moora Performing Arts Centre

December 2003 saw the construction work commence on the conversion of the Moora Town Hall into the Moora Performing Arts Centre. The commencement of this work was the combination of 10 years of planning by many past and present Councillors and staff and community members. It was the most substantial building project this district has undertaken since the early 1980s' when the Moora Recreation Centre was constructed. The completion of the project in 2004/05 addresses issues dating back to the 1950's, and positions our district to host artistic and cultural events not previously possible.
