From “Essgee’s Pirates of Penzance’ to ‘Annie’, Waterdale has produced theatre and music theatre productions since 2006 in the Banyule and Whittlesea areas. Our spirit of support and inclusiveness allows all members of the community to participate in great theatre, on and off the stage.
Each Waterdale production involves acting, singing and dancing; but behind the scenes is a hive of activity including set building, makeup and hair, stage management, orchestra and front of house support.
Create an environment that promotes art and culture within the community.
Support youth in the achievement of personal goals, realisation of artistic endeavours and the development of transferable life skills.
Perform high quality, accessible theatrical projects that encourage community engagement and growth.
Excel through innovative projects that enable youth to strive for high achievement and overcome obstacles in an environment that encourages positive self‐expression.
Waterdale was established after starting off as a West Heidelberg Youth Group in 2004.
Our first production was ‘Little Shop Of Horrors’ in 2006.
We have performed in various locations, most notably our current theatre, Rivergum Theatre at Parade College in Bundoora.
Every cast and crew member is a valuable team member in a Waterdale production, bursting with energy and enthusiasm.
