WELCOME TO RED LINE PRODUCTIONS 2018 SEASON AT THE OLD FITZ THEATRE
THEATRE FOR EVERYONE. LITERALLY
Please come on a journey with us, to help create our 2018 theatre season.

In the last five years, frames for independent development have diminished.

Venue and indie company closures such as TAP, B Sharp and Rock Surfers sit alongside reduced capacity as a result of funding cuts in the small to medium sector. In the wake of this, the work of Red Line is absolutely necessary, ensuring that Australia’s independent creative ecology remains distinct and resilient.

Red Line Productions exists to build the best new contemporary theatre and performance practice, building a rigorous community of practice among artists both emerging and established who are afforded a platform for career development in a safe and relatively risk-free financial environment.

Your support will go towards keeping our theatre running and by partnering up with us on our productions. We can not do this alone. We can not survive on ticket sales. We do not get any government funding. We need the help of yourselves, to partner up with us and to make this theatre YOURS! Come on board this journey with us. Welcome to Red Line.

Red Line Productions kicked into life in late 2014 to resurrect the much-loved Old Fitzroy Theatre in Woolloomooloo. Since taking up their residency, the venue has been transformed into a robust centre for excellence and independent sector generation through Red Line’s curated programming and late night development frames for new writing and emerging practitioner showcasing. Now widely acknowledged as Sydney’s home of indie theatre, the company was nominated for 22 Sydney Theatre Awards in 2015.

Founded on an ethos of backing the next generation of artists and audience, Red Line delivers positive leadership in the growth and vitality of the independent sector. The work of Red Line is absolutely necessary, ensuring that Australia’s independent creative ecology remains distinct and resilient.

The intensely intimate nature of the venue allows for fearless programming and production; the venue is positioned as a hub to connect audiences, artists and supporters. Red Line contributes to building strong artistic and creative capital, embracing and developing the audience of the future.
