Greg Bepper's Thunderbolt Theatre Productions only have one criteria for their productions: the produced plays are totally Australian. All of our plays are uniquely Australian with a cast of primarily Australian characters, and written by Australian playwrights.
The topic, the era, the genre, the style have always been completely open for consideration when we commenced in 2010 and this diversity will continue in the future. Producing both adult and youth theatre productions for regional theatre audiences, and touring the majority of our plays.
Our past productions have reflected this criteria, taking our audiences from inside the mind of a multiple personality (Blocked) to Australian tourists stranded together in Fiji (Just My Luck). From the victims side of discrimination (Deaf, Blind & Dumb) to the cold street life of the homeless (Under The Bridge)
Our 2016/17 season of six plays written by our playwright in residence, Greg Bepper, opens up a new era for Thunderbolt. We have taken the giant leap to be a fully professional theatre production company. Thunderbolt Theatre Productions is now a commercial venture, complete with union approved wages for actors and crew and full commercial fees for theatre hire.
