Open Days

Riverside’s 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 program is 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.

Open Days sessions have the potential to lead to commissions included in our season, creative developments, dramaturg opportunities, and multiple professional developments and employment opportunities.

We are looking for professionals who live or work  or have a strong connection in/to Western Sydney.

NB we are interested in ideas and developments. If you want to pitch a fully developed show it may be more appropriate that you contact Riverside Theatres presenting team.
