Wilde and Darling Productions is an independent theatre company dedicated to creating opportunities for children and young people to develop their performance skills, learn about themselves and the world around them, and tell their stories.
Wilde and Darling was founded by Sarah Westgarth, and runs under her direction.
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.
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.
While currently on hiatus, Wilde and Darling aims to offer fun and meaningful performing arts workshops and programs during the school holidays for primary aged children. These programs give kids the opportunity to make new friends, develop confidence, and create amazing memories.
In the future, Wilde and Darling aims to offer high quality, inclusive performing arts classes for young people aged 3-17 in a variety of disciplines including dance, singing and acting.
