Old Nick Company

The Old Nick Company was formed at the University of Tasmania in 1948 following a tour by Britain's Old Vic Company. It is a unique theatre company in that all its activities are funded by one original show the annual university revue, one of the state's most popular theatrical events. The company has also staged a wide variety of theatre ranging from Shakespeare to pantomime and many original works, and provided a starting point for many of the country's arts professionals, including directors, actors, writers, technical staff and administrators.

Although still university-oriented, and with a constitutional provision requiring certain committee personnel to be students, Old Nick utilises various venues around Hobart and has extensive workshop and wardrobe facilities in North Hobart.
