Join us for Season 2015!

Get ready for an exceptional range of international, Australian and Tasmanian productions.

We have a strong season of dramatic theatre including Melbourne Theatre Company’s The Weir, Bell Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and you’ll be moved by Noni Hazlehurst in Mother.  Sydney Dance Company’s De Novo is a strong and very polished production and is sure to be a highlight of the year.

Tasmanian creative talent abounds this year as we present Alzheimer Symphony, Tasdance’s Affinity (in conjunction with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra), 100 Reasons for War written by Tom Holloway, a new version of Croon and a return season of the hilarious The State of the Tasmanian Economy.

The 2015 program in the Backspace Theatre at the Theatre Royal includes Dylan Thomas: Return Journey which has been directed by Anthony Hopkins and a tribute to the airmen of World War Two in Flak written and performed by Michael Veitch.

We’ve made sure there’s plenty for families. Two adored books are brought to the stage in The 26-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes and Dirty Beasts. A new production by Tasmania’s Terrapin Puppet Theatre, Red Racing Hood, will premiere in the Backspace Theatre.

We are thrilled that we will again be involved in major festivals – MOFO, Dark MOFO and the Tasmanian International Arts Festival presented by Ten Days.

You can see that 2015 will be a big year, so please book early, get the seats you want and don’t miss out.
