Riverside’s Upstage Club

While You're Here

“Upstage Club has been the most amazing experience as it has allowed the theatre lover within me to explore all different types of theatre and learn to love different styles of theatre. I loved the atmosphere of being surrounded by fellow theatre lovers, learning from industry professionals before seeing each wonderfully crafted show.” – Julie Charlton, 2018 Upstage Club Participant

“I was a part of the club in 2018 and it was definitely the best young theatre club I have ever been a part of. It provided me with so many new and exciting as well as informative experiences that I never would have been able to be part of without the program and I would love to be apart of it again in 2019.” – Jackson Bunting, 2018 Upstage Club Participant

Riverside’s invaluable participatory program for young people
in Years 11 – 12 or at a Tertiary training institution (aged 15 – 22 years) returns in 2020.

Upstage Club offers successful applicants access to a number of performances, in conjunction with some exclusive workshops led by professional theatre makers, throughout the year.

Participants become a tight-knit community of young performance lovers, whilst extending their understanding of theatre making and appreciation in a supportive, collaborative and invigorating environment.

Annual fee $30
