About Encore Theatre Company
Family, friendship, love, laughter, curiosity, risk… hope and possibility. The theatre is a place for experiencing all of these values that hold us together as a community.
It is with these qualities in mind that Encore Theatre Company was founded in April 2008 to create top quality community shows built with creativity, innovation and excellence.
Encore successfully debuted in 2008 with their production of The Sound of Music. Many wonderful theatrical experiences followed, including the critically-acclaimed Les Misérables, the sold-out season of Fawlty Towers and the crowning achievements of presenting Jon English in Jesus Christ Superstar and Sue Hodge in The Vicar of Dibley, to the awe-inspiring spectacle and thrill of The Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins and Wicked.
The creation of this vibrant community arts company in Launceston has generated significant interest and provided a powerful means to motivate and inspire young people throughout the region, with Encore entertaining 105,000+ theatre patrons across 27 productions during their first 9 years of operation.
Encouraging and supporting us every step of the way are our Presentation Partners.
