Every year, you can expect us to offer the below opportunities for presentation, alongside some year-to-year collaborations and partnerships.

The Blue Room Theatre and Studio – 
The Blue Room Theatre and Studio are flexible black box spaces. They are intimate and can accommodate small-to-medium productions with professional design that do not require a large amount of space for storage.

External Events –
While most Summer Nights action takes place in our performance spaces, the streets of Perth during FRINGE WORLD are packed with hungry, festival-fit audiences. We welcome offers from artists for outdoor events, free performances, or amazing ideas that simply don’t fit into a traditional theatre, whatever form they may take.

Short Works Development Programs –
We are proud to support emerging artists wanting to dip their toe into Fringe, or familiar faces keen to road test a new idea, through short work Development Programs.

The full performance program offer for Summer Nights 2021 will be released with the application and information pack in June 2020.

The information and application pack for Summer Nights 2021, detailing what’s on offer for the season and with the application form, will be available when applications open in June 2020.
