Based at Springwood High School an 11-18 former specialist arts school, Kinetic Theatre was originally formed in 1992 when a group of sixth form pupils asked to perform a pantomime. Instead, they performed TS Elliot’s “Murder in the Cathedral” and have been doing challenging work ever since.
Productions have grown in size with cast and crews of over 150 a regular occurrence. Kinetic Theatre continued to grow to form Boomerang Theatre Company which toured Australia in 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011, 2014 and 2017.
The philosophy behind Kinetic Theatre is that as many pupils as possible will have the chance to participate in a production whether it is acting or backstage and enjoy the experience as well as learning new skills in the process.
