Applications for Summer Nights 2019 productions are now closed.
In 2019 The Blue Room Theatre and State Theatre Centre of Western Australia will continue our partnership to present a season of exceptional live performance in a bespoke 90 seat venue.
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.
This venue will only be available 18 January – 2 February 2019.

“This program provided us with a commercially viable means of bringing a show home to our community, utilising Summer Night’s trusted reputation which provided us with a built in audience base and an exquisite venue that is not usually accessible to independent theatre companies. The program was an absolute joy to be a part of – artistically and emotionally.”
Lucy Clements – Producer & Director, The Wind in the Underground
