Through the power of new Australian theatre, we explore compelling ideas and inspire our community to embrace creativity.
To be a creative force in Australian theatre-making and a cultural force in our regional community.
HotHouse Theatre is an adventurous producer and presenter of high quality Australian theatre, and a centre for artistic retreat and development. Located on the border of regional NSW and Victoria, we also provide artistic and professional development programs for the communities of Albury-Wodonga, and the surrounding regions of Southern NSW and North East Victoria.
We began as the Murray River Performing Group in 1979, when nine brilliant, determined Victorian College of the Arts theatre graduates descended upon the border towns of Albury-Wodonga. Their mission: to settle in the region and respond theatrically to its life and spirit. In 1997 we transformed into HotHouse Theatre, a contemporary, professional theatre company offering diverse, exciting theatre fare to our regional audiences.
In 2016, we are a versatile organisation with deep local roots and broad national reach. The people of our region continue to support us generously: as engaged audience members, as sponsors and givers, and as enthusiastic partners and participants in our community programs and services.
