In 2023, we celebrate our 17th year of taking live theatre into schools throughout Australia.
Our in-school touring program was launched during shake & stir’s infancy and will always remain one of the most important projects the company delivers annually. In fact, we often refer to this program as the beating heart of shake & stir – with every other activity of the company reliant on it for survival. The program introduces theatre to a vast number of new theatre goers, many of whom, over the past 17 years, have become regular theatregoers. That is both a huge privilege and an immense responsibility. We never fail to consider this each time we create, rehearse, and perform our in-school productions – each is approached with the same care as our award-winning main stage and national touring productions. We owe it to you and your students – all friends – who join us year in, year out and thank you for supporting us and sharing our love of live storytelling.
Great storytelling has the power to last with you for a very long time after the show ends – and that is our goal with every performance – in-schools, in-theatres, in Brisbane or inter-state.
Next year, we have our most-popular productions returning plus the stirring addition of VACANT, GREAT SHAKES and for the first-time ever, our adored adaptation of ANIMAL FARM will stampede into schools.
shake & stir VIRTUAL is also by your side in 2023, should we need to go online, for whatever reason – the show must and will go on.
Our heart-felt thanks for supporting shake & stir and the heart of our company.
We look forward to seeing you in 2023.
