Hello and welcome from Tim and Ruth Gilmour, the dynamic duo behind Babble Productions! With over seven years of Theatre in Education experience between us, we have decided to take a bold step and start our own theatre company. We believe that theatre should be for everyone; young and old, rich and poor, from the busy cities to the remote outback; and our aim is to bring energy, experience and bundles of fun to all people everywhere.
Our shows are interactive, educational and comical with a focus on learning through imagination. We aim to foster creativity and curiosity in our young audiences, with shows bursting with song, dance, musical instruments, characters, puppets, hands-on learning and loads of audience participation.
We are working in partnership with established Sydney-based company, School Performance Tours, and you can find our currently touring shows listed on this website.
Book your show today! Do it. Now. You won’t regret it!
Meet the Team
Tim studied performing arts at Monash University before taking off to travel Australia. He fell in love with life on the road and subsequently began a career as a touring actor. His theatre tours have seen him travel to all corners of the world, from tiny outback towns in South Australia to the bustling streets of Milan. In 2017, he toured with Sydney-based company School Performance Tours. He took three shows on the road and received particularly high praise for his performance in their provocative show, Six Decades of Bullying. Tim is a passionate writer, musical theatre enthusiast and loves to bust a dance move or two.
Ruth graduated with a Bachelor of Dramatic Art from Excelsia College (formerly Wesley Institute) in 2013. Since then, her passion for theatre in education has taken her all over the globe. In 2016, she toured with Italy-based theatre company Theatrino and was inspired to develop original shows in her home country of Australia. Her writing has been published in Stringybark Story’s A Nice Boy and Hunter Writers Centre’s Grieve Volume 5, and she has loved being able to write and create her own work with Babble Productions. She can often be found peeking out from behind piles of paper containing all her new ideas.
