What's On - Local Stages


Local Stages - 2018

Local Stages continues to support Local artists and work with arts organisations in Central West NSW. 

Currently Local Stages is working on

Bathurst Writer's & Reader's Festival - panels, discussion and performances we well streamed sessions from Sydney Writers Festival. 
Central West Short Play Festival Residency
Local Stages will again support the Local Emerging Artist Program (LEAP) at Inland Sea of Sound Festival. This program creates performance opportunities for young musicians (13+).

Regional Theatre Project  - with ATYP/local artists and Bathurst youth. ATYP tutors Rachael Coopes and Guy Webster will be developing a new, contemporary theatre work based on the issues and themes that are important to young people in our community. Local Artists will be involved in the workshops, youth outcomes and the professional work.  This project is also supported by
Create NSW , Australia Council for the Arts and Regional Arts Fund.

In 2017 17 young people performed in Bathurst NSW and in Sydney as a part of this project. In 2018 we are premiering The Climbing Tree - the professional performance in the BMEC Annual Season. The Climbing Tree was a direct outcome from the Regional Theatre Project. It is a new work written by Rachael Coopes, with music by Guy Webster. Stephen Champion will direct the work.
