Felt Tip Theatre Company is an emerging high quality, semi-professional theatre company servicing the New England region and broader rural and regional NSW and Australia.
The company was founded with the passionate belief that there should be more opportunities for people living in non-metropolitan Australia to spectate, and participate in, live theatre. The company plans on staging several shows in Armidale each year, and is extremely interested in touring the district and wider community, performing in school auditoriums and professional theatres – wherever there is an interest in theatre and the arts. The company runs regular youth drama workshops, and engages in a wide variety of community arts projects.
The two co-founders of the company, Chris Curcuruto and Alex Robson, were graduates of the Theatre Studies Department from the University of New England, Armidale.
