The 5pound Theatre fundraiser and Launch Party
5pound theatre are back with a brand new season. Having left the Owl and the Pussycat behind to produce shows interstate (to glowing reviews), 5pound are back home. To celebrate the return and a new line up of shows they’re throwing a launch party to show people what they’ve been working on.
So what does the night have in store? Music throughout from some amazing local artists (stay tuned on facebook for announcements), a raffle, door prize and giveaways, a presentation and preview of some of the upcoming shows, not to mention cheap drinks and finger food to help with the party.
So if you love theatre, if you love an arts party, if you love supporting independent producers, if you love 5pound (just threw that one in there), if you love live music, if you love door prizes or if you just have nothing else to do on a Friday night come on over and let us entertain you once again!
5pound are excited to be a part of the theatre scene of Melbourne once more. Come and welcome us back. It’s been too long my friend.
Background on 5pound 5pound theatre started in 2010 as a collective of 5 artists who wanted a vehicle with which to produce some of their pet projects. The resulting year saw 5pound producing 4 shows with many great reviews and one or two... shall we say ‘memorable moments’ (lest we forget our somewhat rowdy production of Rhinoceros which resulted in the roof of our resident theatre collapsing onto a room full of reviewers).
Since then 5pound have grown and expanded as a company. Our productions have gotten more and more ambitious resulting in some truly memorable theatrical moments.
Our sold out and repeated season of Noises Off had people crying with laughter every night, as did our production of Checkov’s ‘The Bear’. Our production of The Blue Room had people gasping with delight. Our 2 years of repertory theatre had people everywhere asking ‘how!?’, and our latest production ‘Purgatorio’ has moved people to tears through every one of it’s 4 seasons so far.
