Corporate gifts

Considering what to do with your team, to say thanks for their dedication throughout the past year?

Why not take part in a show experience - choose from a Backstage Tour, or a private show function, for groups from 8 - 15 people.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
