We are thrilled that these incredible performers have offered their time for a huge night of improv with all proceeds going to our 2019 Season: UNLEASHED.
Since September 2014 Red Line Productions have been at the forefront of reigniting the legendary Old Fitz Theatre.
We have been the recipients of over 40 nominations for various awards from both the Sydney Theatre Awards and the GLUGS.
We have multiple shows now growing out of the Fitz and playing in much larger theatres, in 2019 our lauded productions of The Wolves and A View From The Bridge will be remounted at Belvoir St Theatre Theatre and Ensemble Theatre respectively, Louis Nowra's This Much Is True will be touring the country and two other productions, which will be announced shortly, will be rolling out across Australia.
Most importantly, our tiny 60 seat theatre has been filled with over 160,000 audience members seeing a show with us.
It has been a remarkable 4 years for a company that operates solely off its box office sales combined with the generosity of individual philanthropists and a couple of passionate foundations.
However, to survive, and to continue to thrive, we have to hold a very special fundraising night, which is vital to the theatre continuing. It is a night for us to meet new supporters, and a night to celebrate with our loyal champions.
