Brown's Mart Theatre's 20/20 Vision

BROWN’S MART THEATRE has officially launched its 2020 program, presenting a host of entertaining theatre, music and cultural offerings throughout the year.

In addition to the much-anticipated theatre program, Brown’s Mart facilitates opportunities to engage and develop a diverse mix of artists and industry from across the Top End.

Artistic Director Sean Pardy says the annual program is packed with goodies.

“We’re really proud of our 2020 program – it is an exciting and engaging mix of theatre and live performance, drawn from the talented and diverse Darwin community which can speak with great meaning to our audiences.”

Behind the curtain, Brown’s Mart continues its long tradition of industry development with their Engage Program, which facilitates community access to the Brown’s Mart space. Their First Nations writing program, run in conjunction with Moogahlin Performing Arts (NSW), works with First Nations writers to develop scripts.

Long-standing partnerships with organisations like Corrugated Iron Youth Arts means you’ll continue to see local kids on the big stage.

“We’re in the sixth year of the Education Program, which provides high school seniors with the same opportunities they would get in places like Melbourne or Sydney,” says Sean.

Another exciting addition is the increase to six play readings in 2020, mixing classic scripts with new work from local and international actors and directors.

And of course, there’s the theatre program presenting four huge productions throughout the year. Away kicks off the season, and Robert in Crisis, an award-winning 2019 Darwin Fringe Festival production, is next up in April.

Don’t forget the ever-popular music program, with Live on Fridays (a favourite of the OTL crew for a Friday knock-off!) and the return of Club Culture Thursdays.

Whether you’re a theatre-lover or theatre-maker, groover or shaker, Brown’s Mart has got the oh-so goods in 2020.
