The Boardwalk Republic


The Boardwalk Republic is coming to Gasworks Arts Park from 13 September to 1 October 2016!

The Boardwalk Republic is a Fringe Hub co-produced by Gasworks Arts Park and Afterdark Theatre.

The Boardwalk Republic was born in 2014 and was the FIRST Southside HUB for Melbourne Fringe Festival. It is a centralised collection of venues, drawing inspiration from the 1920s and two of America’s famous boardwalks in entertainment history; the infamous Atlantic City boardwalk and the family friendly Coney Island.

The Boardwalk Republic is a self sustained arts and entertainment village, covering multiple art-forms; from theatre, dance, comedy, cabaret, circus, burlesque, magic, sideshow, short films and visual arts. It is the home to multiple theatre venues, bars, lounges, live music and galleries.
