Theatre Works is beyond excited to be the recipient of $1.1 million from the Andrews Labor Government through the Victorian State Government's Creative Infrastructure Fund.
Filling a vital niche in the Australian cultural landscape, Theatre Works is fiercely local and outward-looking - an icon on Acland Street since 1980. This monumental investment will allow us to make some critical upgrades to our St Kilda home, ensuring that we can continue to grow our legacy as an artistic home and destination for the ambitious, the new and the eminent for many years to come.
We are deeply grateful to Minister for Creative Industries, Danny Pearson MP for Essendon and local member, Martin Foley MP, for boldly championing creative industries. We also thank Creative Victoria, City Of Port Phillip and the Theatre Works Board for making this dream come true
