About Us – Our Story

Show Works was founded by Paul Anderson, Paul Lahiff and Joe Markac.

Paul, Paul and Joe started working together in 1993 and by 1995 they had formalised their working arrangement by launching their company ALM Pty Ltd. In 2000 they changed the company name to Show Works Pty Ltd (Show Works).Their first big theatrical set build was Beauty and the Beast in 1996 and they carried on from there. Subsequently, they were fortunate to form an arrangement that has seen Show Works being a part of set building for every Australian Ballet production since then. Show Works enjoys a reputation throughout the theatrical set building industry for exacting standards and the depth of experience needed to solve problems and challenges effectively and creatively. With Show Works’ involvement in productions such as The Addams Family, King Kong, The Producers, Wicked and Jersey Boys, we are proud to say we have provided production support to almost every major show that has come to Australia in recent years.

Show Works is capable of providing bump in assistance as well as drapery, fibre glassing, sculpting and stage electrics. In 2010, Show Works saw a change in the board of directors with the departure of Paul Anderson. Tim Blaikie and Cameron Ross joined the board. With their visionary ideas of the dance rehearsal product line this has served to expand Show Works in dance, fitnesfs, education, rehabilitation & architectural markets. This has now prepared the company to move forward.
