White Rabbit Theatre Ensemble is a Gold Coast based theatre company that was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Lisa Smith.

With a focus on the production of new, dynamic work for theatre, White Rabbit Theatre Ensemble has a passion for creative collaboration, delighting in the exploration, discovery and rediscovery of the world of possibilities laid before us in this magical place, theatre.

WRTE is a platform for professional and emerging artists to explore new horizons, to hone their skills and present compelling, surprising and engaging work for our audiences.

Since its inception, White Rabbit Theatre Ensemble has collaborated with local and guest artists to create several new works for theatre, nurturing and supporting artists through creative development, script development and dramaturgy processes, as well as rehearsals and seasons of resulting works. Our original production ‘The Grand’ by Victoria Carless enjoyed its world premiere at The Arts Centre Gold Coast and was subsequently published by PlayLab Australia.

WRTE is committed to the growth, support and enrichment of the arts on the beautiful Gold Coast, engaging the wide array of talented artists that call it home, and inviting creatives from other locales to engage with us, our work and our city.

In 2017, White Rabbit Theatre Ensemble opened our studio THE BURROW, and with it White Rabbit Studio. As the training arm to the company, White Rabbit Studio offers regular classes in Drama, Theatre, and Musical Theatre as well as a dynamic series of Master Classes and Workshop opportunities run by industry professionals and special guest artists. Classes are available for children, youth and adults, from absolute beginners to the seasoned professional. The Burrow is located in Currumbin Waters on the Gold Coast.

As part of programs and opportunities at The Burrow, White Rabbit Theatre Ensemble is excited to introduce several new platforms for artists and audiences that will be beginning soon, including Monthly Play Readings, Works in Development Opportunities and our very own Burrow Book Club.

We believe that theatre exists as an expression of community, and we invite you to become a part of ours. Follow us down the rabbit hole.

“ … the experience of theatre – is that theatre doesn’t really exist. A play is not theatre, we know that; but what the actors act on stage is not theatre. Theatre is created in the minds of the audience. It’s an imaginative act. It’s this act of collective imaginationwhich is so critical to theatre and why, if you like, there is something necessary in theatre, because it tells us something about the nature of what it is to be human. Part of the nature of what it means to be human is to imagine together.”
