Get Involved

Brisbane Arts Theatre offers an unparalleled number of opportunities for performers and technicians throughout our theatre company's annual season of works.

Performance Ensemble


Each year, Brisbane Arts Theatre opens auditions for our performance ensemble—the troupe of actors from which our mainhouse productions are cast. The group is made up of straight-play actors and musical theatre performers. It is diverse, featuring seasoned professional performers, alongside emerging artists with a gifted talent.

Auditions for the following year's performance ensemble are held in the last quarter of each year. Audition dates are announced on our Facebook page.

New Stock

New Stock

New Stock is Brisbane Arts Theatre's youth development programme, offering outstanding opportunities for young emerging artists. Potential New Stock members are identified through the performance ensemble audition process or from an existing commitment to our children's theatre seasons. Members of New Stock benefit from extensive development opportunities, including one-on-one mentoring from Brisbane Arts Theatre's Artistic Director through a year-long performance development programme and suitable placements that match their key developing skill sets as supporting performers in our mainhouse seasons, or as creative personnel in our children's theatre seasons.

Tech Stock

Tech Stock

Tech Stock is Brisbane Arts Theatre's group of technicians, who are our sound & lighting designers & operators, audio engineers and stage managers in our mainhouse seasons. Members of Tech Stock generally graduate from volunteering in our children's theatre, or are offered a place on the basis of their existing experience. If you have existing experience in technical production, apply to our Technical Director.

Directing Internships

Our 12-month directing internship prepares aspiring directors with outstanding development opportunities through our mentoring programme and practical experience in attachment to productions. Find out more.

Children's Theatre

Our children's theatre is iconic in its own right—serving as the first taste of theatre for children for over 50 years. But it is also the starting point for young performers and developing technicians. Open auditions are held throughout the year for roles on stage in each children's theatre production, while applications for volunteer roles in technical production are open all year round. Our children's theatre serves as the gateway to New Stock and Tech Stock.
