Shows on the Go program to continue bringing theatre to regional audiences

Jun 2, 2021, 13:05 PM by Geoff White
The successful Shows on the Go program will continue into 2023 thanks to an $860,000 funding commitment over two years from the State Government.

To be delivered by CircuitWest, Shows on the Go is a community-driven touring model successfully developed and run by Regional Arts WA for the past 25 years.

The program will continue to give Western Australians — mainly in the regions — the chance to curate what shows they would like to see.

As part of the program, communities are offered the opportunity to select shows from a range of genres including theatre, dance, music, children's entertainment, circus, puppetry and comedy.

The proposed program is for smaller, regional professional and non-professional venues, where the performing arts touring shows are selected from a range of options by the community and provided at low cost.

The program has also now been expanded to include outer metropolitan areas such as Kwinana.

The Shows on the Go program provides a unique chance to address the challenges and issues of touring shows, introducing a growth pathway for community venues to present established works to their communities.
