Our Story

FizzWack Theatre started with a seed planted by one of the co-founders long before our first production. After dinner and before seeing a show, Stephanie looked at Travis and said one day we are going to start a theatre company, Travis's response was a laugh and probably a snort of derision. Two years later, things seemed to fall into place, while performing in a production of Ruben Guthrie at Sunshine Theatre Company, the cast desperately wanted to do the show again in a re-energised and re-vamped production and discussed it often. That seed that Stephanie had planted previously, started festering and in 2016 in conjunction with The 1812 Theatre, Ruben Guthrie was born again.

Our Approach

We are committed to creating edgy and fresh theatre that tackles interesting and challenging scripts for Melbourne audiences. We surround ourselves with like-minded creatives and allow the passion to show in the work.
