For Artists

Information for Actors and Artists

As WA's State Theatre Company, Black Swan is engaged with the theatre communities of Western Australia and around Australia. We welcome theatre artists and maintain programs to provide access and support for local performers and others.



At Black Swan we work closely with individual directors to cast all of our shows. Black Swan’s Artistic Director, artistic staff and those directors engaged by the Company generally have a good knowledge of local actors. We also liaise closely with most theatrical agents in Australia. Black Swan does not usually hold general auditions and if we do details will be advised on our website.

Please don'’t send us your CV or headshot but do feel free to invite us to see you in any productions.

Emerging Artists

In 2014, Black Swan redeveloped its artist development programs into the Emerging Artists Program and the Resident Artists Program.


Black Swan does not accept unsolicited scripts due to limited resources.

Playwrights are encouraged to look at the opportunities offered by Playwriting Australia or to consider sending their scripts to the Australian Writers Guild for a professional assessment. You can contact Australian Writers Guild at (02) 9319 0339 or
