Monkey Baa Theatre Company have been honoured with the prestigious Touring Legend Award at the 2015 APACA (Australian Performing Arts Centres Association) Drover Awards in Sydney overnight.
Selected by the APACA Executive Management Committee, the award is in recognition of the company’s outstanding contribution to performing arts touring in Australia.
“For many of our young audience members in both regional and metropolitan areas, a Monkey Baa performance is their first experience of live theatre,” says Eva. “We are thrilled to receive this award, which reflects our ongoing dedication to wide-reaching arts education for young people. We believe that all children, wherever they live, should have the opportunity to experience theatre and arts education programs, so it is wonderful to be recognised in this way.“

- Over 20 tours to more than 135 communities in every State and Territory of Australia;
- Three international tours to 35 US theatres;
