About

Page to Stage is a production company that was formed to address the need for secondary school students to have access to high quality performances of texts being studied without having to travel into the city.

Our aim is to make texts accessible to students by performing them in a contemporary manner that entertains, educates and challenges as well as providing workshops around the texts being studied to assist students to understand characters, relationships and themes.

Texts are performed and workshops run by experienced professional actors and trained education professionals who all share a passion for engaging students through theatre.

"It was a fabulous performance - intelligent, creative and funny. The students were totally engaged and they loved the question and answer forum at the end. I would totally recommend you to any school."
TEACHER, PARADE COLLEGE - [COSI]

Page to Stage provided our students with new insights into the text "Medea" and brought to life the dialogue in a powerful way. The depiction of key characters, especially Medea, was revealing and powerful. Thank you for this excellent and invaluable teaching resource!
Teacher Cranbourne Secondary College [MEDEA]

The entire cast was wonderful both on and off stage. I enjoyed hearing about the preparations that went into 'becoming' a character. Thank you for doing a marvelous job at helping me understand the play...

In 2017 Page to Stage will continue offering workshops and performances of those texts as well as staging school performances of Macbeth, Bombshells, 12 Angry Men, Romeo and Juliet and Medea.

"I loved how it wasn't the typically 'Macbeth' setting. It was made very interesting and entertaining in a more modern time and creepy masked people rather than witches - for us to decide in ourselves what they were."
Student from Bayside Christian College [Macbeth]

"My students gained greater knowledge and understanding of the text which they had been having difficulty engaging with."
Teacher from Belgrave Heights Christian College [The Tempest]

"I enjoyed the production, and would like to see another by your company. Watching the play was not only helpful (and entertaining) in regards to studying the Tempest as a text, but also I felt it a valuable experience as a theatre studies student."
Student from Upwey Secondary College [The Tempest]
