“I’ve been here in Queensland Theatre’s workshop for 36 years. That’s hundreds of times I’ve taken a designer’s vision and made it into a reality, on stage, for you.”
— Pete Sands, Head of Workshop
Headed up by Pete Sands, our workshop operates year-round and employs a team of specialist scenic painters, carpenters and prop-makers who build our production sets.
It’s a big investment to make sets that match the artistic vision of each show’s creative team. We use about five kilometres of timber framing each year, two kilometres of steel and aluminium, gallons of paint and over 200,000 screws! We need over $150,000 a season for materials alone.
That’s why we’re asking you to please support the 2019 Workshop Appeal.
When you see the next set on stage you can think of Pete, and the workshop team, and know that you too had a hand in making it happen.
We’ll be inviting everyone who supports this Appeal to visit the workshop so we can show you how we’re making use of your donation to build our beautiful productions.
