Small Crown Productions has been an independent producer of Theatre, Film and Events since 2004.
Small Crown produced Australia’s first live theatre performed on social media platform Twitter with two shows; Tweet Summers, based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Three Tweetle Pigs, based on the classic fairy tale The Three Little Pigs.
Headed by award winning actor Paul Adams, the company not only produces its own work but works to support other companies. Small Crown has been the producing partner for the Matilda Awards since 2013 with Adams currently on the Executive Committee for the not for profit award organisation.
As an actor Paul has performed on stage for Harvest Rain, Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble, 4MBS Classic FM, Brisbane Powerhouse, Queensland Arts Council and in a number of self devised works. He has appeared in close to 20 television commercials, short films and indie feature films including the role of Dennis in Australiens by Artspear Entertainment which landed him film festival wins as BEST ACTOR and a joint BEST ENSEMBLE CAST award.
The company has produced work for the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble, the Aboriginal Centre of the Performing Arts and a number of self-produced projects. They have helped create theatre works in QPAC (The Queensland Performing Arts Centre), Brisbane Powerhouse, Gardens Point Theatre and non-traditional venues such as Roma Street Parkland, Queensland Museum Cafe and Five Sisters Cafe.
Small Crown have worked in partnership with Queensland Rail using The Three Tweetle Pigs as an activation tool on Brisbane trains, and received support from the Queensland Museum in producing the historical work 1066 The Bayeux Tapestry Brought to Life.
