Drum Theatre Strategic Plan

Drum Theatre has established itself as the premier performing arts venue in the South East region. Dandenong’s Drum Theatre has a reputation for engaging equally with artists and the local community and is a vibrant hub for promoting arts and culture.

Council appointed an Advisory Committee to set a strategic direction for Drum Theatre. In 2016, the committee embarked on a new and exciting direction for Drum Theatre which balances economic sustainability with the needs of theatre goers and the community. The new direction in programming and operations is intended to:

  • build new income streams
  • grow the audience
  • be attractive to corporate and other partners
  • provide a diverse program of activities and events as well as theatre.

We are confident that Drum Theatre will continue to deliver great outcomes for our community and will remain the performing arts jewel in Dandenong’s crown.
