Dionysus Theatre is the Mornington Peninsula's independent theatre company offering unique modern interpretations of the classical canon.
We are a contemporary company, established in 2011 by Victorian Drama League award-winning director Emma Sproule.
The company was founded to provide innovative theatre for audiences, performers, artists and practitioners predominantly on, but not exclusive to, the Peninsula.
The company is housed in Frankston, however it aims to involve people from all over Melbourne and beyond, having already involved some interstate playwrights. Dionysus Theatre is both accessible and affordable.
Given that Ancient Greece was the birthplace of Western Theatre, the company takes its name from the patron of Drama, the Greek god of wine, pleasure and fertility. Every year in Athens, festivals were held in Dionysus' honour. These included competitions between playwrights (as their comic and tragic works were performed), much drinking and debauchery. We at Dionysus Theatre thought we'd produce some theatre and serve some wine, but we might just leave it at that for now.
