Treading the Boards
'Treading the Boards - A Popular History of the Theatre Royal, Hobart, the Theatre Royal Light Opera Company and Other Theatrical Developments' by Amanda Harper traces the history of 'Australia's oldest continually working theatre'.
The collation of the theatre's history, along with the development of the Theatre Royal Light Opera Company and subsequent companies, honours this achievement. The book traces the development of the theatre itself and highlights the many theatrical icons who have performed.
It also investigates the place of the Theatre Royal Light Opera Company and the current Tasmanian companies in the generation of the rich theatrical culture that exists in Tasmania. Treading the Boards is a celebration of the Theatre Royal and its place in the theatrical history of Australia and is a fantastic way to learn about the history of the Theatre Royal as we celebrated in 2012 the 175th Anniversary of the first performance.
A strictly limited print run of numbered hardcover copies are available, along with the softcover copies. Specifications: 29 x 24cm, landscape 168 pages.
