Newcastle has a strong history and existing network of performing arts venues, well established small to medium companies – both non profit and amateur, some with their own resident venues, and a strong independent theatre sector of individuals. In fact Newcastle is home to the first purpose built theatre in Australia, the Victoria Theatre. There is a diversity of theatre being produced. In addition to the production and performance of work, some organisations invest in the development of work and artists through commissions, residencies, mentorships, workshops and training and deliver education programs to schools and young audiences.
