Last night I was present at the birth of a new theatre company. Many are born, but some are sickly and die in infancy. Dionysus, however, is a strong, healthy and beautiful baby – conceived in love and passion for theatre. Its mother is Emma Sproule, an exciting young director and winner of last year’s Victorian Drama League award for Best Director of a Comedy, and the birth was an exciting and joyous occasion… Despite the quality, and the quest for excellence, Dionysus needs community support to grow and prosper.

Dionysus Theatre 2018 Season Launch

Last Friday night - amidst the thunderstorms and what seemed like Armageddon - we held our inaugural Season Launch event

With more than 20 people who had to cancel their RSVP at the last minute due to the weather & their concern coming out in it, we had an intimate number in attendance - some 30 people - but with all our enthusiasm for the evening and excitement for what lay ahead, we had a great night surrounded by fabulous company - Dionysus stalwarts, past & present cast & crew, current & past nymphs, members of other local theatre companies, friends of Dionysus Theatre and local community members

It was a great night, filled with food, laughter, good company, plenty of drinks and a chance to take a sneak peak at Dionysus Theatre's 2018 Season

Our Season Program will be made available on our website shortly but here are a few pics from the night

Thank you to those who joined us for a fabulous evening - the first of many Season Launches to come!
