Welcome To The Lieder Theatre online....   

The Lieder Theatre Company - Goulburn NSW Australia



The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project is a very special docu-drama from the US. Written in collaboration by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project.

When a vicious crime takes place in a small rural US town, fingers are pointed and the townspeople start to question how this could happen and who should be responsible. No one had heard of Matthew Shepard prior to his brutal murder but the world changed its view of acceptance, tolerance and hate as a direct result of it.

The Laramie Project is a verbatim theatre work based on numerous interviews with the town's people conducted by the company members of Tectonic Theater Project in New York during the months that followed the attack of Matthew Shepard in 1998.

The Laramie Project will open at the Lieder on 6th till 23rd August

From the President - Jennifer Lamb

As we head into winter, things are heating up at the Lieder – beginning with a special event just for Lieder members and supporters.  At 6.45pm for 7.30pm on Wednesday 21 May you are invited to the first night of the new revised interpretation of Carlo Goldoni’s zany The Servant of Two Masters

This is the play the Lieder Company is taking to the USA to perform at the 2014 International Community Theatre Festival – so it will be a great opportunity to upstage the rest of the world who won’t see the play until June. 

Come along early so you can also have a chat with us about the exciting concept design for the new Lieder Theatre building – with a model of the proposed structure taking centre stage in the foyer. 

We hope all (I’m a glass half full person) members and supporters will come to this special event, thoroughly enjoy the performance and become as excited as we are about the proposal for a new energy efficient, sustainable and brilliant Lieder building in the, hopefully, not too far distant future. You might even be interested in helping us reach that goal.

There will be really quite excellent refreshments at this special members’ and supporters’ event on Wednesday 21 May, and the cost for tickets is only $10. You can book online, or by contacting the Lieder by email liedertheatre@gmail.com or by telephone (02) 4821 5066.  We ask that you RSVP by Monday 19 May so we can cater for you.

­After the three-week season of The Servant of Two Masters, there is another world premiere at the Lieder Theatre (this will make three in less than 16 months).  The new play, Life’s a Bitch, is by well-known Goulburn playwright David Cole  who wrote the popular Windfall­­ - performed at the Lieder in 2009 – and co-wrote with John Spicer the acclaimed The Ballad of Mary Ann Brownlow  which was performed by the Lieder in 2004-5 in Goulburn and around the region.

Life’s a Bitch premieres at the Lieder on Wednesday 11 June for a 10-day season.  It is a hilarious play about modern life for humans and canines.  While there aren’t actual dogs in the cast, there are humans, and it promises to be a romantic comedy like no other.  And it’s great to see the Lieder again supporting local writers.
I do hope to see you at the Special Event on Wednesday 21 May and again during the season for Life’s a Bitch

And I wish the cast and crew of The Servant of Two Masters a fantastic festival performance and experience in Florida.
