Black Box Creatives was formed in 2016 and has evolved into a team of young theatre producers living in the Dubbo/Wellington region. The team consists of aspiring performers, writers, technicians, designers and directors who work together to produce original work for local audiences.

The team of producers is selected biannually for a five-month season, with applications accepted in January/February and September. During each season, our producers will research, conceive, rehearse and present at least one original theatre project. All producers are required to collaborate with industry professionals and engage with the local community to develop high quality, thought-provoking work.


The Black Box Creatives’ 2020 Playwriting Challenge is currently underway! Local youth aged 10-24yrs are undertaking the three stages of the challenge to devise their very own playscript, with the assistance of the Black Box Creatives’ Program Coordinator and a number of special guest mentors.


Black Box Creatives is excited to present our next production, ‘Serpent Valley High’ at Dubbo’s Western Plains Cultural Centre in 2021!

Gossip is quickly filling the corridors of Serpent Valley High in the lead up to the school’s Winter Masquerade Ball. Rumours are leaking from all corners of the classroom as students frock up and step up for one of the year’s biggest social events.

Journey through this immersive, multi-space theatre performance and explore the toxic effect of bullying and deceit on integrity, friendship and wellbeing. This action-packed show will have you off your seat from start to finish and act as an important reminder not to believe everything you hear.

From grumpy teachers to innocent juniors and menacing teens - there are always two sides to every story... and often many more!

Written & produced by Black Box Creatives - youth theatremakers from the Dubbo region.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, performance dates for this production will be announced at a later date. Please join our Mailing List to receive email updates and special offers.
