WHO WE ARE

Dreamhouse Theatre Company is a not for profit theatre company catering primarily to teenagers aged 13 – 18.
We aim to inspire a love of the performing arts, and to celebrate the artistic contribution that young people make to our community.
Dreamhouse is inclusive, endeavours to support and advance Australian writers and stories, and to present theatre that challenges contemporary values.
Born in 2009, via a Mornington Peninsula Shire Community Renewal Project, Dreamhouse is available to any young person living on the Mornington Peninsula. 

SKILLS, EXPERIENCES & OPPORTUNITIES

Dreamhouse provides a platform for young people to put voice to their creative ideas. We foster trust, teamwork, collaboration, self belief and we love having fun.
Weekly workshops provide a testing ground for exploration in improvisation, text work and we place emphasis on the development of performance skills.
Performance opportunities exist in the annual theatre production, as well as in smaller group devised projects.
These projects enable the ensemble to perform at festivals, special events, and in other non-theatre environments.
Members are also encouraged to develop abilities in all areas of theatre; so alongside acting technique we provide workshop opportunities with professional artists in design, puppetry, scriptwriting, sound, lighting and more.
Ensemble members come from a range of backgrounds, and attend a variety of local peninsula secondary schools.

MORNINGTON PENINSULA ARTIST CAROLE PATULLO IS THE CURRENT ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Carole is an actor, director, maker and teacher, who’s performed with many companies and independent arts organisations including the MTC, Arena, Theatreworks, Malthouse, La Mama, Complete Works and fortyfive downstairs. She’s been nominated for four greenroom awards and the play Button, which she co-wrote, was included on the 2013 VCE Drama list.
In her teens she dedicated most Sundays to making the long journey from the outer eastern suburbs into Carlton to make theatre. It’s been her passion and life since then, and she is committed to encouraging and enabling young people to discover their creative voice. Carole is also an avid improvisor and regularly plies that skill in role play work, and leading workshops. 
Current projects outside Dreamhouse include a solo work The Strange Luck and directing Fight with all your might the zombies of tonight by Matthew Whittet, at Dromana College.

THE COMPANY IS RUN BY A DEDICATED VOLUNTARY COMMITTEE. WE ALSO WELCOME EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR VOLUNTEERING, AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE COMPANY TO COLLABORATE WITH COMMUNITY GROUPS.
