Q Theatre Continuing to Develop Work Behind the Scenes with Open Call-Out to Local Singers & String Players
There are currently multiple works in development that explore the theme of community and connection to the local area as part of project St Marys Kid. These development projects are part of a multi-year commitment to the St Marys community and seek to amplify existing local arts and culture with a range of performance outcomes later in the year.
The new St Marys Kid project is being produced in partnership between Q Theatre and Penrith City Council’s Community & Cultural Development team and kicks off with an open call-out for members of the community to participate in the performance of the song All Might – a piece from a new musical written by Nicholas Christo and Paul Smith.
As part of the Keep Heart Penrith programming, Q Theatre is inviting local singers and string players of all abilities to apply to be a part of the performance via the Q Theatre website. Participants will be able to rehearse at home using online resources with all contributions edited into a beautiful version of the song; shared online as a free performance piece. A sample recording featuring main vocals on piano, choral parts and strings is available to check out now via the website.

In response to the current health crisis, The Young Artists Ensemble for St Mary’s Kid was reworked into a 6-week online course focusing on the theme of Hometowns. The course, run by Western Sydney theatre-maker and director Bernadette Fam, gathers ensemble members to learn and share a range of skills including creative writing, sound production, spoken word and animation. The spoken word piece by ensemble member, Bedelia Lowrencev from Auburn entitled ‘Pretence’ is available now to view online via the website. Other performance outcomes will be made available to audiences in the coming months.
While the future of performance is uncertain, Q Theatre continues to produce and connect with work that is current, long-form and multi-faceted; building pathways for artists to train, experiment and create. Patrons can be kept up to date by signing up to the newsletter on the website, where news about performance outcomes and projects will be delivered to your inbox.
