Having a dozen play scripts and concepts for plays wasting away in her hard drive, and  recently finishing her Graduate Certificate in Arts Management, Megan Riedl saw an opportunity to assist emerging performing arts professionals in the areas that often come the hardest to them – marketing, management, funding and audience development.

Megan wanted to develop an organisation that could assist her, and others like her, to make high-quality theatre and present it locally with a view to creating paid work opportunities for central Victorian creatives and arts managers.

With a small team of committed supporters, Megan launched Tripwire Theatre Inc in August 2016, with the mandate to realise it’s member’s creative ideas for the stage.
