Committee Member

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.

We have proudly made a new home out of the Drum Theatre Dandenong, where we have performed The Wedding Singer, Legally Blonde, Clue, and Rent! With plenty of more productions 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.

Interested in becoming an Escapee?

We are always on the look for like minded people to be apart of all that is the Escapees.

Whether that is as a committee member or as a production member on a specific season.

If interested or would like to discuss further please get in contact with us today!
