Call-out for performers

Sunbury-based inclusive theatre company, BoilOver, is seeking new members. BoilOver, a program of Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health, is open to anyone over the age of 18 who has an interest in performing or in the work that goes on behind the scenes in the performing arts. There are opportunities for skill development, for example, thanks to a grant from the Australia Council for the Arts, the company has just finished a five-week circus workshop where group members developed their aerial and lift techniques and worked on conditioning exercises to strengthen the body and build flexibility.

The artists are busy rehearsing for their next production, The Birds, which will take place as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in October.

Led by professional arts practitioners, members learn to develop their confidence and performance skills in a safe and supportive environment as well as increase their fitness, emotional literacy, self-esteem and social networks.

The group meets weekly in Sunbury with extra rehearsals being held in the lead up to a production.

Sunbury and Cobaw Community is a registered NDIS service provider so the program can be accessed through an NDIS plan.

If you are interested in coming along one week to see if BoilOver is for you, give Carmen Maddison a call on 9744 4455 or email You can also see photos and videos from previous productions by going to the website:
