Company History

Founded in 1958, Ensemble Theatre is the longest continuously running professional theatre in Australia.

Ensemble Theatre has become synonymous with the legendary playwright David Williamson. Since 1995, Ensemble has staged 24 Williamson plays including 19 world premieres and produced 3 national tours. This year CRUNCH TIME marked David Williamson’s final play before retirement.

SIX DANCE LESSON IN SIX WEEKS starring Todd McKenney and Nancye Hayes was another sell-out success. The national tour won the Helpmann Award for Best Regional Touring Production and led to a reprisal on the Ensemble stage in 2016.

THE APPLETON LADIES’ POTATO RACE, a brand new Australian work written by Melanie Tait and directed by Priscilla Jackman in 2019, was an Ensemble Theatre commission that sold-out before opening. They will be back with another new play A BROADCAST COUP coming soon.

Further Information

Ensemble Theatre is a welcoming and inclusive theatre for everyone and gives voice to diverse stories by presenting an annual season of exceptional plays by Australian and international playwrights. Each year we aim to create theatre that is accessible, enlightening, surprising and above all entertaining.
