As the sun sets on the final weekend of the inaugural Anywhere Theatre Festival Frankston we’d like to thank everyone who has made the event such a success. Thank you!

Sold out and packed performances of I Knew These People, To Be Determined, Impromptu Impro, Suburbia, Don’t Be A Diva, Orbit, It Sounds Silly, Girls Just Want To Have Fun, fantastic reviews and audience feedback for those shows plus many others including Cirque du Bloke, Don’t Look Up,  A Mad Tea Party, Peninsula Ferry Tails, Open For Inspection, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Periphery, Soapbox Poetry and The Gift.

Thank you to all the performers and producers for taking a risk on an inaugural festival based anywhere but a theatre. For those interested in getting involved in the future, head here.
Thank you to Frankston City Council, without whom, the festival would not have happened. Everyone at FCC has been incredibly supportive as well as making sure the festival was marketed through banners on Davey Street, advertising on trains and much more.
To our other major partners EastLink and the banners and bilboards up and down the motorway to Frankston, Frankston Arts Centre & The Edge for all their support including co presenting It Sounds Silly with Chunky Move, and ensuring Cube 37 and the Mechanics Institute were available as rent free spaces for performers as well as Mornington Peninsula Tourism.
To all the organisations who offered their space to performers rent free – Bayside Rock, Mulberry Hill (National Trust), Ballam Park, Mechanics Institute, Frankston Library and Wells Street Mall (Frankston City Council), Rocotillos, The Grand Hotel, Sofia’s, McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery, Chisholm Institute, Just Ride It Frankston (now renamed Red Riding Hood Bikes), Cube 37 (Frankston Arts Centre), Gateway Worship and Performing Arts Centre, Eeny Meeny Cafe.
To all the reviewers who did an amazing job getting to almost everything in the festival – Erica Louise, Sarah Bollenberg, Melissa Learmonth and Andrea Louise Thomas. You can find all their reviews here.
Thank you to all the media who got behind the event and gave the performers well deserved coverage,  in particular to Frankston Times, Frankston LeaderConcrete Playground, Weekend Notes, 3RRR, Pearl Magazine, Mornington Peninsula Leader, Whitehorse Radio, Daily Review, The Age,  Moorabbin Leader, Herald Sun, SBS Radio, On The List, Chelsea Mordialloc Leader, Frankston Weekly and 3RPP. You can find a lot of the press in one place right here.
Thanks you to everyone who helped to share Anywhere news on social media with over 70,000 people watching videos, visiting the web site and sharing posts through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and good old fashioned email 😉
Thank you to Frankston TV for putting together some excellent footage of It Sounds Silly, Don’t Look Up and Open For Inspection and having it up and ready to share less than 24 hours after filming. Incredible!
Lastly, we’d like to thank everyone who came along to experience Anywhere Theatre Festival Frankston. We hope you had a fantastic time, saw some great shows and explored some nooks and crannies of Frankston that you never expected. We look forward to seeing you again in 2015.
