Make It @Merrigong

Merrigong is committed to commissioning and developing new Australian works for future production and to supporting the work of local independent artists through established performance platforms and regular development opportunities.

Auspicing Service

Grant applicants with no legal status (eg. unincorporated associations or groups of artists that have formed to work on a specific project) are required by funding bodies such as Arts NSW and the Australia Council to nominate an auspicing body to be responsible for the management of any grant. If you are thinking of applying for funding and require an auspicor, Merrigong Theatre Co provides an auspicing service to grant applicants.

Get Involved As a Volunteer

Merrigong Theatre Co runs a volunteer program utilising people from the local community to assist in various duties, including ushering and mailouts. If you have an interest in theatre and enjoy interaction with a variety of people, this is a great opportunity to see some of the best performances in the country at the same time as contributing to an exciting, vibrant company.

Art on Walls

Local visual artists who are inspired by performance or conversely whose work inspires performance continue to be showcased on the walls of the IPAC foyers. To date, Merrigong has displayed work by local visual artists Alannah Driese, Peter Solway, Anna Glynn, Coomaditchie United Artists Corporation, Kathryn Orton and Jen Saunders.
