Creating performance with and for our community

Perseverance Street is an independent theatre company proudly based in Gympie, Queensland. We build theatre from the ground up. This is at the heart of what we do and why we exist. As a not-for-profit regional arts organization, we focus on utilizing the power of performance to foster wellbeing, resilience and connectedness. Perseverance Street is one of the few professional theatre companies in Queensland focused on the development and engagement of  young, regional and emerging artists, as core practice.
