Our Vision

“Bendigo Theatre Company prides itself on creating lively and memorable theatre experiences for the local community.”

We aim to become the meeting place of community and creativity in the Greater Bendigo Region. To lead local cultural conversations. To be able to provide support and encouragement to other community groups through sharing of resources and knowledge.

To hold a pivotal place in the artistic landscape of Central Victoria and to reach and welcome as many people as possible.

Vern Wall, President

Who we are

Bendigo Theatre Company is a community theatre company dedicated to producing high quality theatre.

Located in the regional Victorian town of Bendigo, Bendigo Theatre Company seeks to mount several productions each year of the highest quality, ranging from musicals to full length dramas.

We aim to provide opportunities for members of the community to enjoy and develop their theatrical talents locally and to gain experience needed to achieve their goals for future careers. We are delighted that many have attained these goals and are now working at a professional level.

Each year we are privileged to be associated with so many members of our local community involved in production teams and behind the scenes, as cast members and musicians, and as patrons who support our productions.

The Bendigo Theatre Company is located on Dja Dja Wurrung Country, with members located all over the Kulin Nations. We acknowledge and pay our respects to the elders of the Kulin Nations: Past Elders, for the traditions that they passed down. Present Elders, for the knowledge and customs they hold and cultivate. And Emerging Elders, for the hope they carry for the future. We are grateful for the sharing of this Country and express our sorrow for the ongoing cultural and spiritual costs of that sharing. We hope that one day we may walk forward in the spirit of harmony and healing.
