Pitching new theatre to the regions


So you want to take your play or your cabaret on tour to the regions.

But how do you know who to contact? And which arts organisations might be interested in presenting your work?

That’s where Showcase Victoria steps in.

Each year, they bring together arts organisations and performing arts producers, and then watch the sparks fly.

I went along to Showcase Victoria, and spoke to co-ordinator Gemma Robertson, independent theatre producer Anna Kennedy and Mik Frawley, the Manager of the Lighthouse Theatre in Warrnambool.

I produced this interview for ABC RN’s Books and Arts and you can listen to it here.
