The Show Company is a Hobart-based production company which produces and presents entertaining theatre shows for our community as well as creating exciting opportunities for local performers and theatre makers to participate in quality productions.
Since staging its debut production in 2000 with the song and dance spectacular ONE!, The Show Company has presented a succession of highly successful musical theatre productions.
In 2017, The Show Company staged the Hobart premiere of Wicked at the Theatre Royal. Hailed as 'better than Broadway' and earning a record-breaking 10 Tasmanian Theatre Awards nominations in the Community Musical Theatre category, Wicked went on to win 'the Errols' for Best Production, Best Direction to Allan Jeffrey, Best Musical Direction to Petr Divis, Best Performance (Female) to Nicole Simms-Farrow and Best Ensemble.
In 2018, we assembled the most practically perfect cast, creative and production team for Mary Poppins. 7,500 people shared in the jolly holiday enjoyment of many spoonfuls of sugar and took flight with Mary and Bert and stepped in time in this whimsical, glorious show. Mary Poppins won 2 Tasmanian Theatre Awards from 7 nominations in the Community Musical Theatre category, winning Best Lighting by Gareth Kays of GK Productions and Best Performance (Male) to Campbell Braithwaite who is now studying at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).
WHAT’S NEXT? Our next production is the musical blockbuster Mamma Mia! which will be the Tasmanian premiere of this iconic and hugely entertaining show at the newly upgraded Theatre Royal, Hobart in January 2020!
