With 2-3 productions per year, at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, LPAE Inc is dedicated to producing quality productions from some of the world’s most loved scripts.

Liverpool Performing Arts Ensemble Inc opens our 2015 season with the exquisitely convoluted comedy farce Noises Off. Branded the “funniest farce ever written,” Noises Off is the story of a troupe of nomadic performers rehearsing a flop called Nothing’s On. Door slamming, on and offstage intrigue, and an errant herring, all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. The performance season is a joint production between Liverpool Performing Arts Ensemble Inc and the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre; THE centre for creative and performing arts in the South West and recently voted as one of the top 10 cultural arts centres in Sydney.

We are searching for dedicated theatre-makers to join our company in Liverpool as part of our super-human backstage crew and/or as a formidable member of our production team, for this extraordinary season. This is a wonderful opportunity for those who are trying their ‘Theatre’ hands for the first time, for emerging professionals, or for mid-career specialists who want to be a part of developing performing arts access and quality for South West Sydney.

Production Week – 8th to 11th August
