Getting Involved With Belvoir

There are may ways to get involved with Belvoir, here are some you may not have thought of.

Come along to a Sunday Forum

Ever wanted to find out more about a particular production or to hear directly from the people who make it? Sunday Forums offer a way to think widely around a production or to hear from people in the industry.

Near the end of each Upstairs production’s season there will be a panel discussion on the show and how it slots into the world at large. These are free of charge and would be ideal for Drama HSC students doing Critical Analysis: Director’s Folio, Theatre Criticism or Design for their Individual Project.

Students don’t need to have seen the show to benefit from the forum.

Sunday Forums are held in the Upstairs Theatre at 3pm on the second to last Sunday of each Upstairs production. Bookings for these free forums are essential and are available four weeks before each forum.

For a full list of all 2014 & 2015 Sunday Forums, check our Sunday Forum webpage, where you can also book online.

Or you can book with our Box Office over the phone, 02 9699 3444.

Take a tour

If you’re doing Set Design, Lighting Design or Director’s Portfolio for your IP you might benefit from having a quick look at either our Upstairs or Downstairs theatre. We can take groups of students or individuals to have a look at some of the theatre spaces. You need to arrange a time with us – we can show you the theatre when it isn’t being used Monday to Friday between 9am and 6pm.

To book a tour contact us on education@belvoir.com.au.

Grab Student Saver tickets

Did you know that Belvoir offers Student Saver tickets for $35 for Upstairs Theatre performances on Tuesday 6:30pm, Thursday 8pm, Saturday 2pm and all previews. Also available for Downstairs Theatre performances Tuesday 7pm, Thursday 8:15pm and Saturday 2.15pm, subject to availability. This is a great chance to see productions independently of your school, or if you are reviewing a play, to see something again.

Spend a week at Belvoir

Every year we offer work experience places to year 10 students interested in finding out about the work of a professional theatre company like Belvoir. We accept one student per month – there’s lots of interest so please get your applications in ahead of time.  Our 2014 Work Experience program is now full but if you are currently in year 9 you can find a form explaining how to apply for work experience weeks in 2015 here.

Do a workshop with an artist

All our workshops are run by practicing theatre practitioners and are really helpful and practical. We run workshops in playwriting, performing monologues, group devising, creating performance through improvisation; set, lighting & costume design as well as in directing and Brecht.

We can bring workshops to your school in areas of performance and design – speak to your drama teacher about having a Belvoir workshop with a theatre artist at your school. We also run workshops that students can book for individually that are held at our warehouse in Surry Hills, usually towards the start or the end of each year. Find out more here.
