Through touring to an ever-expanding network of locations around regional, remote and rural Australia, we ensure that audiences can experience diverse & innovative professional live performance. With the CST Screening Room and digital theatrical experiences we now bring these some outstanding artists into the homes on devices of audiences everywhere.
Working with over 120 venue and festival partners, we bring together people from across the country to connect with original local stories and theatrical works in the venues, centres, and places they hold dear. We also produce regular forums and industry initiatives that help bring together theatre makers and creatives, contributing to a strong, diverse and vibrant theatre culture.
Aunty Rox and Barb are back, and they’re faster, funnier, and fiercer than ever before. Based on the lives, and the inspirations of two great performers, Rovers captures the same spirit, honesty, and hilarity as the original stage production, with Rox and Barb unleashed in beautiful Queensland to riff on age, love, and comforts big and small.
A Migrant’s Son
Igniting memories of a story that millions of Australians can relate to, Michaela Burger pays tribute to her Greek migrant family and hard-working, fun loving larrikin father Luke who defied all odds. A Migrant’s Son will return to screens (and stages) in 2023. Watch it now in The Screening Room.
