53 James St, Perth Cultural Centre, Northbridge, WA, 6003
Perth's home of independent performance for over 20 years, we provide a dynamic year-round programme of new works, as well as artistic support services, advocacy, auspice services and more.
Our Purpose : To be a leading arts organisation that supports the development of outstanding performing arts practitioners by providing affordable and accessible resources, services and support.

Our Program: Curating a continuous program of diverse, new work, The Blue Room Theatre seeks to support what is urgent and interesting. Our performance program provides artists working across a broad spectrum of theatre practice with practical opportunities to explore their craft and develop their skills, as well as opportunities to build professional profile and present new work. The Blue Room Theatre has an exceptional record of providing outstanding artists and their work with critical entry points into the professional arena. These artists are now working across the country contributing to the richness and diversity of Australian culture.

The Blue Room Theatre is a well-connected organisation that has a strong track-record of working collaboratively with cultural partners on a state, national and international level to support, develop and deliver strategic initiatives that ensure greater opportunity for independent theatre artists working within the small to medium sector.

Situated in the heart of the Cultural Centre, The Blue Room Theatre is housed in a heritage building owned by the State Government of WA. As well as housing The Blue Room Theatre administration, the venue is an active centre for artists to meet, develop, rehearse, produce, review and network offering two theatre spaces, two rehearsal rooms and a great bar all under Blue Room management.
