Acoustic Theatre Troupe is an independent theatre company based in Canberra. The collective's goal is to create high quality musicals, plays and live performances, with an emphasis on original productions. Founded in 2015, Acoustic Theatre has quickly gained prominence in the Canberra Theatre community, being a recipient of the Belconnen Arts Centre's 'Artist in Residency Program' for their first production "The Last Time". An original musical produced by Acoustic and in association with leading ACT experimental theatre company Shadowhouse Pits, the show was highly successful and was performed to a sell our season, with critical acclaim. "Ophelia's Shadow" will be Acoustic's second production, and will be performed at the Courtyard Studio in January 2017 in Canberra, before touring to the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Acoustic Theatre strives to produce work that is socially relevant, particularly examining themes relating to mental health, disability, women's rights and LGBTIQ rights.
