Dedicated Performance Space In Lane Cove

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

23 years ago, the Lane Cove Dramatic Society was formed as part of the Lane Cove Centenary celebrations. Since then, we have been committed to transforming various venues around Lane Cove into what is now known as the Lane Cove Theatre Company: a thriving theatre community, a training ground for young performers and theatre technicians, and a hub for neighbourhood-based theatre and arts events.

We have worked to create a thriving cultural neighbourhood in Lane Cove, with diverse, scattered artistic venues ranging from schools to community halls. This shows flexibility and adaptability and tremendous community spirit, which has been recognised and rewarded by Council and many others. The organisation is now a vital part of the Lane Cove community.

Theatre is about space and time.

Time has been kind and at 23, the company has matured into a well-oiled machine, committed to high production values, creating meaningful theatre and firmly embedding itself into the fabric of Lane Cove.

What we don’t have is space.

Administrative costs are borne on a shoestring, yet Lane Cove Theatre Company–a non-profit organisation–spends the vast majority of its budget on the rental of rehearsal and performing spaces. As Lane Cove has recently seen an investment in infrastructure and a growing population, the many cultural hubs in the community have also seen developments catered towards the needs of their individual organisations. Lane Cove Theatre Company wants to be a part of that.

If we want Lane Cove to be a vibrant, engaging cultural space, then we need to invest in it. We need a space, a home, a sign that what we do is important, that it belongs, that it is relevant to our community and that it is here to stay.
Lane Cove Theatre Company strongly supports the development of a theatre/performing arts space in Lane Cove for the whole community to use. A purpose built theatre is that cultural space, not just for us, but built for all of our community to own and use.

Let’s make a commitment to engaging our wonderful community in its own unique and diverse culture, art, performance and theatre. This is the moment. 23 years of Lane Cove Theatre Company. A unique moment of development and progress in Lane Cove. The time is right. The place ...?
