The WATDI encourages a vibrant and sustainable theatre sector by supporting the public presentation of high-quality professional productions in the mid-tier sector in Western Australia.

It also aims to create employment opportunities within the theatre sector, share Western Australian stories, contribute to activation of an Arts and Culture Trust venue, develop audiences and offer the potential to tour regionally and/or nationally.

Up to $150,000 was available to community organisations, groups and individuals in support of production and performances of outstanding professional theatre and non-traditional theatre in Western Australia.

The first recipient in this round is arts producer Alexander Egloff for SIT! (Or I'll Make You Sit!), a theatre production by All Things Considered. To be hosted at the State Theatre Centre from February-August 2023, the project is a text-based independent theatre production created with a team of emerging interdisciplinary artists. The project will receive $93,012.

Black Swan State Theatre Company will receive $149,997 towards a season of Angus Cerini's award-winning play The Bleeding Tree staged at the State Theatre's Studio Underground in April and May 2023.
