Theatre Gippsland. ‘The brand means a ‘great night out’…’
How lucky is Gippsland in eastern Victoria? Along a 200km corridor from Pakenham to Bairnsdale, and south to Wonthaggi, there are SIX excellent theatre venues.
Each venue is only a short distance by road from its neighbour and though each is owned by a different Shire, the network they create offers an opportunity to program live shows with the whole region in mind.
Imagine a ‘great big theatre’ with 6 box offices, 6 stage doors, 6 stages and 6 foyers full of superb shows and local, recognisable faces enjoying themselves in each.
Theatre Gippsland is that ‘great big theatre’. Six separate venues, working together to make sure our region is a great place to see live performances and our venues are places for all to enjoy.
We work to promote our program widely and to mobilise our audience to follow that ‘word-of-mouth’ recommendation or travel to see a major production just across the Shire boundary. At the same time, we will be attracting people from outside Gippsland to come to our region and enjoy all it has to offer.
The Australia Council for the Arts has supported our venture with a grant under its ‘ENGAGE’ funding. Watch out for the brand ‘Theatre Gippsland’. It is your pathway to an even broader and more exciting experience of live performance in Gippsland.
