Sir Robert Helpmann
Did You Know?
Theatre remains the only thing I understand. It is in the community of the theatre that I have my being. In spite of jealousies and fears, emotional conflicts and human tensions; in spite of the penalty of success and the dread of failure; in spite of tears and feverish gaiety -- this is the only life I know. It is the life I love.
Has a theatre named after him in Mount Gambier; Sir Robert Helpman Theatre.
