EGTC – Audrey of the Outback

Our call for artists for our first Performing Arts Residency produced some fantastic applications from local artists – musicians, performance poets; directors and playwrights from Wollongong to Nowra, Bowral to Kangaroo Valley. It was difficult to choose one from so many outstanding proposals. However we are very pleased to announce that the residency has been granted to The Eaton Gorge Theatre Company, a grassroots theatre company from Thirroul who will use the residency to fine-tune the script and design for their production of the Australian children’s story Audrey of the Outback for a regional tour.


The company of four actors will work with award winning south coast playwright, David Sharpe, to develop the final draft during their two week residency at Upper River Hall. Their residency will include a theatre making workshop and performance opportunity for young people from 8 – 18 years on Friday 11 July (last Friday of the school holidays) and a preview of Audrey of the Outback for the community.
