In 2018 The Blue Room Theatre and State Theatre Centre of Western Australia will partner to present a season of exceptional live performance in the Studio Underground as well as a bespoke venue for performances in the round.
We are seeking proposals for high-quality, presentation-ready works that can sit alongside the best the world has to offer. The application process will ask producers to demonstrate that their work and/or company has received critical acclaim and is able to fill a high capacity theatre over several nights.
We will provide a Duty Technician who will be present for your technical rehearsal and available during all changeovers between shows. However, as tech and changeover times are short, we strongly recommend you also provide your own Stage Manager who knows the show and will be responsible for operating lights, sound and AV.
Works presented at the State Theatre Centre will receive some added marketing and promotional support, but you will still be expected to plan and execute your own marketing campaign in the lead up to and during Summer Nights.
The Studio Underground will only be available 27 January – 3 February 2018.
The bespoke venue in the round will be available 2 – 10 February 2018.
230 pax Studio Underground stage dimensions – 16m wide x 9m deep
Detailed Technical Specifications for the venue in the round are still being finalised. If you are interested in this space, please get in touch with Producer Jenna Mathie (jenna[at]blueroom.org.au).

“As a fringe performer, The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights program is an absolute treat, it’s such a supportive venue, there’s a real safety net feeling there, and that is just such a rare and golden thing to find on the fringe circuit.” Wil Greenway – Writer, Performer & Co-Producer, A Night to Dismember
