Shakespeare In The Park
Joondalup March 11 + 12
The FTC Shakespeare In The Park is back! For another whirlwind tour up and down the coast, to Margaret River, Albany, Bunbury, and Perth - to delight families and fun-in-the-sun-seeking folk.
Shakespeare’s final and finest comedy is one of consummate costume-swapping, role-reversal, and a genuine no-holds-barred, dogged pursuit of love – Woof! Replete with love triangles, terrible tricks, and devilishly mistaken identities. ‘Oh disguise, I see thou art a wickedness!’
In this down-under re-telling of an already truly topsy-turvy tale, hearts will be on sleeves, swords in hand, and all manner of tongues will be firmly pressed in cheeks. And you can be assured of a hilarious evening at the theatre, under the stars, amidst the splendour of our incredible WA summer skies! So pack a picnic, gather 'round your friends & family and roll out the rug with all of us in the Park!
Location: Neil Hawkins Park - 200 Boas Avenue Joondalup, WA 6027.
The venue is open to ticket-holders at 5.45pm ahead of the show which starts at 6.45pm. Arrive early enough to park, find your spot and enjoy the open-air ambiance of each site.
WA Tour: Dec 29 - Jan 21 toured to Margaret River, Bunbury, Albany + Kings Park.. one stop left!
FTC debuts unique infrastructure for hearing accessibility.
Enjoy the sound of theatre wirelessly to your hearing aids, eliminating background noise and giving you full volume control.
FTC is proud to announce that the Ear Science Institute Australia have donated a Sennheiser Mobile Connect system that we will be rolling out for the first time at the Joondalup Festival with our Twelfth Night performances. This system allows us to offer hearing support at all future events, outdoor and in a theatre.
“We noticed that the new hearing aids are all Wi-Fi enabled, meaning the older hearing loop systems in theatres will become obsolete and we were looking for a system to take advantage of the new technology. Sennheiser’s Mobile Connect does just that. We are fortunate to be partnering with Ear Science Institute Australia who saw the opportunity for their clients to fully engage with theatre” said Pippa Davis, General Manager.
In addition we are happy to announce that the Lions Hearing Clinic are offering free hearing aid trials at the event and you can book your trial now:

Thanks to Joondalup Festival for fully embracing this concept and we hope this will enhance the experience of anyone with hearing loss.
With thanks to Joondalup Festival, Ear Science Institute Australia and Pro AV Solutions WA.

Fremantle Theatre Company is now at home in Freo's own Victoria Hall on High Street . We can now open our doors to our new audience and begin to offer professional arts training from the city centre, for all.
Each of our courses are truly invigorated by the old bones and inviting space of this grand theatre.
The continued residency will allow the company to properly support the development of works with new voices along side the work of more established artists.
The space will make exploration into dance, theatre, music and film far more readily available to the local community and offer a truly sustainable practice for artist keen to work from their own shores, here in WA.
Boasting a newly outfitted Education Space and Rehearsal Room, our Downstairs Ready Room, the Victoria Stage and Hall, as well as company office spaces, the venue will act as an incubator to all of the works that we hope to bring to Fremantle.
