Find out about Adelaide Festival Centre’s internationally renowned leading theatre construction facility.
Adelaide Festival Centre’s Scenery workshops at Gepps Cross and Dry Creek are internationally renowned as the leading theatre construction facility in the southern hemisphere. Our workshops play an integral part in most of the major musicals produced in Australia and Asia Pacific and have done so since 1979.
Our unique skills and expertise are also sought after for trade exhibitions and interactive displays and we are recognised for creating flexible and adaptable sets, props and displays. We are also highly regarded as touring and freight management specialists for national and international events.
In 2012/13, the workshops team created/supported the production of 10 shows including Mouse Trap, Moon Shadow, King Kong, Legally Blonde, War Horse, and Jersey Boys.
There's a long and very substantial tradition of building sets here in Adelaide – and I think they're very good at it
Since its establishment, the workshops have been the country's leading commercial set builders and still handle more than 65 percent of all work in Australia.
