Do you have a theatre project you’re burning to present? Would you like the opportunity to work in our iconic Inner West venue?

 New Theatre is seeking a dynamic production team for a three-week slot 9 – 29 July 2017 .

What you get:

  • Use of our 150 seat (148 seats, 2 wheelchair spots) 132 sq m black box theatre
  • Access to the theatre from 8am on the Sunday before you open
  • Support of our Technical Manager at your bump-in for an 8/h call
  • Use of our stock stage, sound and lighting equipment
  • Reduced rates for rehearsal room hire and theatre workshop, subject to availability
  • Online ticketing, box office and front-of-house services

This is not a co-production: we don’t take a percentage of the box office, so once costs are covered, all profits are yours.

You’ll be responsible for marketing and publicity to get those punters through the door, but we’ll support your production through our various social media platforms and marketing networks and our eNews which goes out to 5K+ supporters.

If you have any questions, including venue hire fees, please contact: A/Theatre Manager Alice Livingstone at or 9519 3403 Mon – Friday 11am – 5pm.
