HistoryEdit

The first committee was formed in 1964 and consisted of Alastair Duncan as chairman, Diana Sharpe as secretary,[2] Nigel Lovell as treasurer as well as Ellis Irving, Owen Weingott and Wendy Blacklock.[3]

ATYP's first production was the comedy She Stoops to Conquer - Goldsmith Examined by Oliver Goldsmith, adapted and directed by Owen Weingott.[4]

LocationEdit

Since 1997, ATYP was housed at The Wharf, Pier 4/5, but due to construction that started in July 2018, ATYP has temporarily relocated its office to Woolloomooloo.

Their performance spaces are SBW Stable's Theatre, Riverside Theatres, Parramatta and The Joan, Penrith.[5]

ProductionsEdit

ATYP productions have toured regionally, such as Sugarland,[6] nationally, such as A Town Named War Boy,[7] and internationally, such as Patrice Balbina's Chance Encounter with the End of the World.[8]
