The Ballarat National Theatre, Gertrude Johnson, and the Australian National Theatre Movement by Lucinda Horrocks.
The Ballarat National Theatre is a local amateur dramatic society with a surprisingly grand-sounding name. It is one of the longest-running community theatre groups in Australia, for which it deserves celebration. But the company’s name reveals another fact worth celebrating. It has a rare, ongoing connection to a foundational episode in the cultural history of Australia – the Australian National Theatre Movement.

One of our favourite things is to meet audiences at film screenings and Q&A events.
On Thursday the 13th of March and Saturday the 29th of March Lucinda, Jary and Sam had the great pleasure of showing the ‘Savoy Ladies Group’ to the community of Myrtleford and Melbourne in two special screenings.
