Welcome to (and some notes about...) www.theatresydney.info !




All listings are FREE on this website ( www.theatresydney.info ) which is an attempt, begun in July 2010, to be of assistance to the theatre community and the general public of Sydney & NSW, Australia.

Some of the main pages on this site are :

To list your show, absolutely FREE, please send info in the format  outlined here

Here are a few reasons why this site was created;
1) gratitude for the work of the tireless (& often lesser-paid & undervalued) artists in the theatre community
2)
the need to let the general public know what's happening in theatres near them in Sydney & NSW
3)
a desire to help theatremakers collectively promote theatre to the world at no cost
4) the realisation that advertising on the internet need not be a costly thing for theatres to do
5) appreciating the simple technological beauty of the hyperlink, as first best-appreciated by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the WWWeb

Theatremakers already spend money on their own websites, and after appreciating their generally dire financial circumstances in the first place, it was decided a simple site like this would be helping both them and the general public.
This site brings together many websites related to theatre in the Sydney and NSW communities in the one spot, so that this information is easier to find.  Hopefully this website effort, in combination with my twitter presence (@niall_tangney ; promoting NSW & Sydney's theatre scene) has,  and will continue to, increase audiences for theatre in NSW.
If you would like to contribute links & or information, or send any feedback, please email: niall @ theatresydney .info 
I trust this site will help you find a show to enjoy!
Reminder: you may wish to follow  @niall_tangney on Twitter  for regular tweets on mostly theatre-related  topics.
