Let’s travel down the rabbit hole… 🐇  Dug up a newspaper article from the second year of Flannofest that was hosted by Craig Anderson.  This festival has an important history within Q Theatre and the Penrith community. Katrina Doulgas said it perfectly in the article “the Q Theatre operates from the belief that young people can make theatre that is as important, relevant and engaging as professional theatre”  🎟️Tickets for the Riff 2024 - Down the Rabbit Hole is on sale now.

After over 30 years of providing local young people with a platform to express their ideas and experience working in a professional theatre setting, Q Theatre’s key youth event, The Riff: Youth Theatre Festival, returns for another year! 🎭  This initiative continues to support teachers in providing one-of-a-kind experiences for their students to exercise their creative voices in exploring local identity and global issues, whilst developing the next generation of Western Sydney performing artists and creatives.  The schools participating in this year’s event include Blue Mountains Grammar, Kingswood High School, Nagle College, Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School, Rooty Hill High School, Springwood High School, Winmalee High School and Wycliffe Christian College.  Each group of young artists has been teamed up with a professional theatre artist to devise a new work in the performance style of their choice, using the theme of “Down the Rabbit Hole” as inspiration.
Don’t miss your opportunity to celebrate the creation of and experience some captivating new works by our rising stars live on stage!  Q Theatre is proud to give young and emerging artists the chance to gain performing arts production experience in a professional theatre environment, whilst gaining invaluable industry expertise from arts professionals through this unique program.  🎟️ Link in bio  Illustration by Meiying Saw @ragingyoghurt.artroom
