How did Theatre Alive come about?
Theatre Alive was set up to help audiences find up-to-date information on shows, venues, and companies to help ensure that our independent companies become even better known.
It was developed by Arts Victoria in response to a need in the sector and in line with the Government's arts policy Creative Capacity.
Theatre Alive was made possible through the support of the Victorian Government through the Community Support Fund and Arts Victoria.
Arts Victoria is the Victorian Government's arts funding and policy body. We support the arts and cultural industries to encourage excellence, develop good ideas, build audiences, encourage participation and improve facilities.
