Putting the Nation on Stage

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 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.

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 in Western Sydney. To receive the latest updates about our Open Sessions and application dates, sign up to our newsletter here.


Applications to our 2019 Open Days are NOW OPEN (applicants can only apply for one session). 

Apply here  – applications close Sunday  28 April midnight.
