Rehearsal Observation

We offer Rehearsal Observation placements to Canberra-based emerging theatre-makers (directors, actors, designers) and musicians as part of our 2024 program. This is an opportunity to get an inside view of all that goes on in a rehearsal room in a professional theatre company for performance events and theatre seasons.

The working hours will be negotiated on an individual basis. A stipend is offered as part of this observation.

These placements are strictly observational, affording artists the opportunity to closely consider the processes of a production and witness the working relationships between the Creative Team, the Director, the Cast and the Company.

A rehearsal observation placement may include attendance at

  • Rehearsals
  • Production Meetings
  • Bump In and Production Week
  • Preview performances

We have two observation opportunities available this Winter

  • Crime and Punishment will be in rehearsal June 2024 
  • The Girl Who Glows will be in rehearsal July 2024 

Expressions of interest, including your CV with relevant experience, key interest area/s for rehearsal observation, and an indication of which production/s you wish to observe, should be emailed to by 22nd May 2024.
