About

Quality Arts Education - No Matter Your Postcode!

Your postcode should not dictate your access to education in the arts! We are a Not For Profit Organisation and Touring Theatre Company that engages students and communities across three different states. By providing 5 in-school secondary productions, 3 in-school primary productions, educational resources, teacher professional developments, and pop-up artist in-residencies, we have you covered for 2019 and beyond.

We understand the Australian Curriculum, and with our team of teachers and creatives on our Mashed Theatre Inc. Advisory Panel, we are constantly updating and elaborating upon our resources - whether that's a show, workshop or educational resource.

Our In-School Productions
Each of our five in-school original productions for secondary schools are tailored to the 2019 National Curriculum. They are designed to not only entertain, but educate! Sticking closely to the Unit and Syllabus relative to the show, it utilises prescribed texts in a unique and creative fashion that is guaranteed to leave an impression on your students long after we leave.

Our Bespoken Workshops & Residencies
We don't have a specific workshop that you select from - we don't believe that truly meets your desired outcome. Instead, we tailor-make all of our programs per request! This way you keep your students on track and gearing towards that unit outcome! Ask us for more info on our workshops!

Art For Earthlings
Our collaborative partner, Art For Earthlings, is a comedy/clowning duo, who are dedicated to bringing sustainability awareness through hilarious, upbeat shows, to primary students across Australia! Whether it's a workshop or one of their three shows, they will engage your students, make them laugh, while teaching them what they can do to make a difference for our future!

Company History

Mashed Theatre Inc. was founded by Matthew Caffoe in 2016, and has since grown to become a Not For Profit Organisation that tours across three states to over 100 schools and performs to over 10,000 students. We employ professional local artists with a wealth of experience, with training from New York, Germany, London, and Australia - and our selection of artists that want to work with us keeps growing.

We believe in having fun with theatre and literature, providing opportunities where we can, fostering relationships with metro and regional theatre groups, and support for artists that need it. 2019 will be Mashed Theatre Inc.'s biggest year yet, and we cannot wait to tackle it head on and meet you all!
