Luke is an Actor, Director and Arts Educator, whose primary interest is in making work for, and with, young people.

Luke Kerridge was granted $19,300 through Theatre’s 2013 - 2014 grant category: Creative Development.

From 2015, activities similar to this can be funded through: Arts Projects for Individuals and Groups ($10,000 - $50,000).


Luke Kerridge has created an adaptation of Reinhardt Jung’s book ‘Bambert’s Book of Missing Stories’ into a theatrical work for young audiences (9-12 years) and their families about isolation, imagination and the enlivening power of art. Using puppetry, visual storytelling and an immersive design the work tells the story of Bambert, a little man who is overwhelmed by the size and pace of the outside world, and finds comfort and companionship in the characters he has created in his “Book of Wishes”.
