GLASSHOUSE Port Macquarie works closely with world-renowned theatre producers and major arts companies to identify and present a carefully considered annual program of special productions and events.
Our GLASSHOUSE SELECT Theatre Program represents shows of extraordinary calibre, high production values and exceptional artistic merit. The aim is to ensure our community has access to the same experiences readily available to our metropolitan counterparts.
Thank you to WIN Network for sponsoring our Theatre Program for a sixth year! Their ongoing commitment to be our Principal Partner is invaluable to ensuring our community has continued access to first-class entertainment.
SELECT 2023 is widely diverse in style, narrative, and structure; from the gently heartbreaking yet inspiring Wild Thing, to the hilariously madcap The Twits by Roald Dahl; updated classics like Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, to the sharply contemporary ON by Circa.
You can also join add-on experiences such as workshops, talks, post show Q&A's, as well as a behind the scenes "sneak peak" with Sydney Dance Company.
