For over eleven years, Dreamhouse Theatre Company has been inspiring young people on the Mornington Peninsula, through youth theatre and community arts and cultural development projects. We work alongside young people to nurture their passion for all aspects of the performing arts, and to expand their creative thinking. Dreamhouse aims to develop works and share stories that value the multiplicity of voices in our community, and, as well as the concerns of young people. We strongly believe in the artistic contribution that young people make to our community, and in the positive health and wellbeing outcomes, that occur from participation in the arts.
Dreamhouse Theatre has an ongoing commitment to creating transformative, contemporary works that support uniquely Australian storytelling. As part of the weekly theatre program, we offer acting and performance workshops for young people aged 5-21. The program has been created by industry professionals with extensive experience working with young people in the performing arts. Dreamhouse is committed to being inclusive to all young people, who are free to voice their ideas in a safe and welcoming creative space. Weekly teen workshops lead to an annual theatre production in the first half of the year. Other performance opportunities exist in ensemble works at festivals, special events, and other non-theatre environments.
