Nicely, effectively, WELL. What every week to be writing the Griffin Information be aware! It’s been an thrilling time to be a Griff and it’s such a privilege to be sharing all our information with our prolonged Grif-family! I’m Ell and I’m the Relationships Supervisor right here at Griffin. The final time I wrote this be aware we have been in an prolonged lockdown, however now we’re about to open one other new Australian play, launch our 2023 Season and turn out to be house owners of the theatre we’ve referred to as residence for the previous 40 years. A refreshing change of tempo!
Tomorrow, we preview Dylan Van Den Berg’s play Whitefella Yella Tree. Dylan developed his script over his time as a Griffin Studio artist in 2021 and it’s unimaginable to see this work come to life. Dylan follows an spectacular record of Studio artists who’ve seen their work on the SBW Stables stage: Meyne Wyatt, Suzie Miller and Phil Spencer to call a number of. The ending touches of Mason Browne’s beautiful set are being put in place and we stay up for audiences falling in love with Man Simon and Callan Purcell’s performances, as we have already got.
The largest headline this week was that the Neilson Basis has made a game-changing donation of $5 million to Griffin, paving the way in which for Griffin to buy the SBW Stables Theatre and adjoining terrace and embark upon a significant redevelopment. The acquisition follows the announcement of profitable inventive capital funding from the NSW Authorities. This funding requires us to lift matched funding dollar-for-dollar, so we will likely be embarking upon an formidable Capital Marketing campaign to make sure our beloved Stables Theatre will get the a lot wanted facelift it deserves. This features a carry, a much-needed rehearsal room, and comfier seats!
Griffin goes by way of an unimaginable time of change, and you’re a large a part of that. Your love for brand new Australian writing is what motivates us, and we stay up for offering artists and patrons with an area they honestly deserve. Above all, we pledge to all the time stay really “Griff” and hold the center of your loved one theatre on the hill intact.
