Co-founded in 2019 by Kate Bookallil and Siobhan Lawless, the Flight Path Theatre, Marrickville, is now centre stage of the inner west theatre scene.
At Addison Road Community Centre, the theatre offers a space for independent productions, with a vision to forge meaningful connections across the community.
Just a year into their new venture, COVID meant that they had to shut their doors, but now they are back up and running, thanks in part to the tenacity and innovation of its leaders and generous support of the local community.
Flight Path ensures all inner westies can enjoy a night out at the theatre, with patrons able to watch local productions via streaming or now be there in person with safe social distancing.
I was very proud to support the Flight Path Theatre with a $15,000 Community Building Partnership Grant. It will be used to soundproof the theatre, as it is under the flight path.
I congratulate them all and wish them great success for this season.
