The Escapees are a not-for-profit, unique, innovative and hard-working theatre company based in the South East of Melbourne who have predominantly created theatre performances, both original and re-imaginations, since 2007. We are an inclusive group with a flair for the dramatic and a deep appreciation of a good pair of jazz hands. We entertain our community through theatre and strive to make the arts available to all.


Our Musical dreams have been realised as we have thrown ourselves into the big World of Musical Theatre. Starting with Heathers in 2018, Grease in 2019, The Wedding Singer in 2022, and a lot more to come!


The Escapees Theatre Company prides itself on being an inclusive space for people of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, identities, genders and people who are neurodiverse. We acknowledge for many individuals, gender identity and presentation is a vast spectrum. We also welcome people of all levels of theatre experience.
