who we are

Loud Mouth Theatre Company was founded in 2014ish, and has since grown into a strong new voice (#sorrynotsorry for the pun) in the Tasmanian theatre community. We are dedicated to presenting new, collaborative, professional theatre experiences for our audiences, with a particular love for work by emerging and/or female theatre artists.

WHO WE really ARE

We are mostly just three people, but we're also lots of other people, too.
