Putting the Nation on Stage

Backstage Pass

An opportunity for students to engage with theatre-making at The National Theatre of Parramatta.
As a package of activities, Backstage Pass enables students to gain a deeper understanding of the theatre-making process from rehearsal through to post-production.

Backsatge Pass WebsiteWHAT’S AVAILABLE?
Backstage Pass is only offered to groups that see the play. Students participate in the following activities to supplement their attendance at a performance:

1. Attendance at first read-through– hear design presentations (set, costume, lighting and sound) from the creative team and the script read by the cast on the first day of rehearsal.
2. Creative workshop – the creative team will take students through all design elements and how the show is being created on set. The creative workshop can be organised to suit you and your students during the rehearsal and performance period.
3. Post-show discussion– the show’s directors engage with students in an informal setting to talk in more depth about how the show was realised, the production’s themes, symbolism, characters and narrative. The post-show discussion will be organised with you within the fortnight following the final performance.
Places are strictly limited for Backstage Pass and are by arrangement only.
