18th and 19th Century masterpieces came alive
We reimagined two rarely-performed treasures for modern audiences. We set high standards, respected the creator's original intent and passed on our professional skills. We are inclusive and collegiate by choice.
The beggar's opera
This exciting production of John Gay’s 1728 English opera respected his original vision using new musical arrangements and revised dialogue.
Over 40 performers and musicians entertained audiences of all ages across 8 performances in 2016.
the yeomen of the guard
Our productions are respectful interpretations of the creator’s original intention with an eye to contemporary relevance.
We set the highest standards and will engage professional actors and musicians to complement our talented amateurs.
Our past success proves our productions are accessible and enjoyable for modern audiences.
Our Social Inclusion Program also offers creative opportunities for people with intellectual or physical disabilities, mental health problems or who are socially isolated. You can be part of our valuable community.
One of our aims is to pass on skills from experienced to those wanting to learn. We have the veteran talent in performance, stage craft, music, dance, and arts administration in our team.
Our past productions used mentors to develop the skills of new performers and behind-the-scenes helpers. For example, The Beggar’s Opera saw talented singers with little acting experience become assured, convincing on-stage characters.
