New Horsham theatre opportunity
All-abilities actors from Horsham district will have the chance to perform in theatrical productions as part of a new Art Matters project called Soap Box Theatre.
Soap Box Theatre will operate as a theatre company and provide opportunities for actors to play a key role in Horsham’s Art is… festival.
Professional actor and theatre maker Jim Lawson, whose unique theatre-making celebrates each person’s individual interest and contribution, will lead Soap Box Theatre.
Horsham Rural City Council community services director Kevin O’brien said Soap Box Theatre was designed to help address a need for a professional performing arts program in the Wimmera.
“It’s a program that allows people with a disability to have equal access to express their distinct talents for the stage, culminating in an ensemble production during this year’s Art is… festival,” he said.
Soap Box Theatre starts on April 19 in Horsham’s Jubilee Hall in Roberts Ave.
It will run weekly on Thursdays between 10am and 2pm.
