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.
“Lizard is a wonderful piece of theatre that explores the complex topic of toxic relationships in a smart, insightful, tongue-in-cheek, and very - very funny manner." - Merlyn Tong, Playwright
Perseverance Street Theatre Co recognizes that we work and create on the lands of the Kabi Kabi/Gubbi Gubbi, Waka Waka and Butchula/Badtjala people. We acknowledge them as traditional owners, custodians, first peoples and the first artists, storytellers, performers and creatives of these lands. We pay our deep respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
