Suggesting a show

We want to hear from our wider community about what shows they think Philo should be producing. We’ve landed on the following criteria for selecting our shows - if you think there’d be one that’s perfect for Philo, please let us know!

  • We want the shows we produce to be ambitious: in the stories they tell, the scale or scope of the production, or the way they engage the Canberra community.

  • Our shows should be accessible: they should include opportunities to showcase all aspects of musical theatre, and for people with a range of skill levels and skillsets. 

  • We want variety: we aim to produce a range of different types of musicals, telling a variety of stories in different ways.

  • Our shows need to be profitable: Philo needs to make a small profit of each show to keep the lights on, so shows that put bums in seats are preferred!

  • Our shows need to be feasible: lots of shows present challenges, and we need to make sure those challenges can be managed before committing to a production.

Nominating for a production team

We welcome expressions of interest from members and the broader Canberra community for all roles associated with a Philo production.

We’re looking for people with vision, passion and experience, who can work well in a team and lead our productions to success. We’ll support you to create the show that’s always been in your head, learn new skills, and make new friends along the way.
