Wilde and Darling Productions is a new, Adelaide-based production company that is dedicated to telling engaging, personal and contemporary stories, with an emphasis on lifting young voices.
Wilde and Darling was founded by Sarah Westgarth, and runs under her direction.
We plan to stage plays that are Australian, original, or tackled with a modern, fresh perspective. Rather than deciding on shows and then finding a cast to suit, we put the performers first and then select or create shows that will showcase them appropriately.
Our first show, 'Delayed', premiered in December 2019. Find out more about the play here.
We believe that the best art is created when people feel safe, supported, and encouraged to take risks. We are a company that is welcoming and accepting of all people, with no tolerance for prejudice, bigotry or aggression of any kind. The work we produce promotes compassion, empathy, and love for those around us.
The performing arts offers valuable and important experiences to kids and young people, helping them grow in confidence, develop new skills, and make loving connections with other like-minded people. In the term breaks, Wilde and Darling offers a variety of programs and workshops for the creatively inclined.
Looking ahead in 2020, ‘Wilde and Darling’ will be offering classes for young people in acting, singing and dancing. Details will be available later in the year.
