Putting the Nation on Stage

Open Days

National Theatre of Parramatta (NTofP) aims to source, commission and create diverse, bold and engaging theatre for audiences in Western Sydney and beyond.

The Open Days are an opportunity for NTofP to meet and become aware of the pool of talent that is in Western Sydney. We encourage artists and creators, both those we know and those we have yet to meet, to attend our open auditions held each year. Thank you to those of you who came to meet us in 2016.

In the past our Open Days sessions have lead to one commissioned play included in our 2017 season, three creative developments, dramaturg opportunities, and multiple professional developments and employment opportunities.

We are looking for professionals who live or work in Western Sydney. To receive the latest updates about our Open Sessions and application dates, sign up to our newsletter here.


Applications to our 2018 Open Days are now closed.
