About this opportunity
Pitter Pat Productions is Karratha’s local not for profit theatre company, founded in 2017. We provide an outlet for community members to connect with like-minded people, through direct involvement in theatre and performing arts (both onstage and behind the scenes) regardless of ability or experience.
Pitter Pat Productions contributes to the Karratha (and surrounding) community by providing an accessible performing arts outlet for all people regardless of background or circumstance. We contribute to the development and sustainability of performing arts in the region by producing shows that appeal to a local audience and tell their stories, increasing local interest in the arts. Since our inception we have produced two major shows Pilbara Pan & Little Shop of Horrors to excellent reviews, interest in our work is ever increasing and we have many exciting plans in the works, it is a fantastic time to get on board!
We provide opportunities for people to ‘have a go’ and for artists to develop and showcase their skills, working on local productions also increases community capacity in a variety of skills including writing, directing, prop/set design and building, lighting/sound, stage management and marketing. Days and times vary depending on the project, we have a mix of flexible roles and those that require specific commitments (e.g. stage crew must be available on set dates for rehearsals and shows).
We also have opportunities for performers/musicians and creative roles, these are usually filled via an audition process, contact us for more information.
If you have an interest in theatre, the arts or community development (or are just curious), and a “can-do” attitude we would love to hear from you.
