The Group

Led by Patty Akopiantz, Deputy Chair and Sam Meers, Belvoir Chair, The Group is a collective of inspiring like-minded women who are dedicated to supporting the great old craft of storytelling on stage.

Belvoir is renowned for its support of women in theatre both on and off the stage. In 2019, The Group will  support Fangirls for its rare combination of young female talent writer Yve Blake and director Paige Rattray.

Fangirls is a thrilling new musical by a barnstorming young talent called Yve Blake. Not content to sit on the sidelines, Yve is also playing Edna. She’s joined by a cast of new young faces with brilliant voices for a show that’s Beyoncé concert-meets religious revival, with a wicked sense of humour, about love and other big feelings in the age of the internet.

We invite you to become a member of The Group and join us on the creative journey, ‘from page to stage’, and to engage with us during the creative development phase in 2019, through to rehearsal, all the way to Opening Night in October.

Annual tax deductable contribution $4,000.

Thank you

Patty Akopiantz, Catherine Brenner, Jillian Broadbent AO, Margaret Butler, Sally Cousens, Kate Donnelly, Holly Kramer, Robin Low, Sam Meers AO, Sarah Meers, Naomi O’Brien, Cecilia Ritchie, Katriina Tahka, Cathy YunckenUpdate
