“Shed any preconceived ideas you may have of going to the theatre as this vibrant festival turns these expectations on their heads!”

It’s back! Performance anywhere but a theatre returns to the local nooks and crannies of Frankston when Frankston Anywhere Festival returns for its second year from 21 August to 6 September!

Expect just on 100 performances including world premiere shows in skate parks, shop fronts, malls, car parks, cafes, heritage homes, markets and barbers.

There will be drama in someone’s home, comedy with a haircut, a shopping tour of Wells Street, dance in a shop window and much much more.

This year the festival program – supported by Frankston City Council – also introduces audiences to local ongoing community attractions and events in Frankston.

Some of the many highlights include:

FMZ (Funny With Zombies) features a carload of drama performed in a car park, written, directed and produced by local teenagers and presented by Frankston Arts Centre Arts Access

The Butterfly Surgeons features the Get Out! ensemble performing “butterfly surgery” on volunteer patients at various locations around Frankston.

Frankston Arts Centre, Yellow Wheel and LYDT bring The Golden Age / In Transit, a new dance work in a very cool but still secret location.

Window Shopping Walking Tours with Dash and D’Bree as the Australia’s Got Talent survivors take you on a tour (quite literally) through the shopping centre of Frankston.

A mini comedy festival in several different cafes, barbers and pubs including Good ShowAlso-Ran and the evocatively titled Is That A Burrito in Your Pocket Or Are you Just Happy You Have a Burrito? and Paul Culliver is the Best Newcomer.

“What rocks about Anywhere Festival is it appeals to anyone who wants something exciting and different. People come who aren’t regular theatre goers as well as theatre goers that are looking for something more than the regular experience,” said Paul Osuch, Co-Founder of Anywhere Festival.

“It also appeals to anyone who wants to explore the nooks and crannies of Frankston and wanted an excuse to do so.”

Anywhere Festival Frankston is supported by Frankston City Council.

Shows are all reasonably priced (with some free performances as well) but you do need to book for almost all shows, so head to or call 03 9013 6443 to find out more and start planning your calendar for 21 August to 6 September for the Anywhere Festival Frankston.
