Summer Nights is The Blue Room Theatre’s curated program of theatre and performance, presented in the hustle and bustle of Perth’s Summer Festival Season.

Summer Nights is a whirlwind of new collaborations, social commentary theatrical playfulness and heartfelt stories. We aim to present a program featuring high-quality, diverse and contemporary live events that champions out local crop of WA talent alongside the best independent artists from around the world.
