The Harbour Theatre (Roo Theatre Company)Last updated Tuesday, 29 Nov 2011.
Since its establishment in 1987, Roo Theatre has managed to maintain and improve its service to a growing community. Through the hard work of members and friends, it has grown into a major arts organisation and has earned respect for its professionalism and innovative works. Along with broadway musicals and classic drama, Roo has gained a reputation for community-inspired new Australian works. The core business of Roo Theatre is skills development and productions. Many of the students and performers who have studied and performed with Roo have continued in the arts and completed courses at recognised colleges such as NIDA, Nepean and Wollongong Creative Art, Wollongong University and The Australian Ballet. In addition to employment related skills, members and students are able to participate in activities that promote self esteem, confidence, responsibility, ability to work as part of a team, and the development of friendships.
From Roo’s permanent home, The Harbour Theatre, the organisation conducts classes and adult tap dance for over 150 students weekly, with 80% of participants residing in the City of Shellharbour (the remainder from Wollongong, Kiama & Shoalhaven). Roo mounts an average of six productions annually, selected by an honorary committee, and tailored to suit the demands of local audiences. In addition to this, the Roo Theatre also welcomes local schools who produce and perform their yearly school productions at the Theatre.
