FREMANTLE REGION'S ONLY & ORIGINAL COMMUNITY THEATRE FOR OVER 50 YEARS. Harbour Theatre was formed in 1963 by eight enthusiastic amateurs, led by James (Jimmy) Quinn, a very competent and experienced director from the former Perth Repertory Club. The theatrette on the upper floor of the Evans Davies Civic Library in South Terrace, Fremantle was made available by the Fremantle City Council and became Harbour’s first home. Conditions were very primitive at the beginning, but enthusiasm overcame all difficulties and the group rapidly expanded. Since then Harbour Theatre has produced hundreds of plays and entertained tens of thousands of people. Plays have ranged from drama to comedy, whodunit to tragedy and murder to farce. As a not-for-profit theatre managed solely by volunteers, all proceeds raised by productions are channelled back into the group.
