Critical Stages is the national professional platform for independent theatre. Our goal is the sustainable growth of the sector – we seek out the most promising productions from small theatres around Australia and help them reach their potential.
We nurture and support independent theatre artists by providing expertise and infrastructure, working as partners in the development, staging and touring of their productions.
Critical Stages actively encourages a nation-wide conversation at all levels of the theatre community, brokering a dialogue between individual artists and major companies, producers and presenters, like-minded organisations and anyone in the orbit of independent theatre.
We believe it's crucial that audiences in regional and remote locations are given the opportunity to see high quality theatre – since 2007, Critical Stages has worked with over 100 artists and toured 90 towns across all states and territories of Australia.
