Why work for us?

Sydney Theatre Company produces theatre created to illuminate, entertain and challenge. We are committed to engagement between the imagination of our artists and our audiences, to the development of the artform of theatre, and to excellence in all our endeavours.

STC has been a major force in Australian drama since its establishment in 1978. The Company operates out of our home venue, The Wharf, on Sydney's harbour, is the Resident Drama Company of the Sydney Opera House Drama Theatre and both performs in and manages the state of the art 850 seat Sydney Theatre at Walsh Bay.

We offer staff a creative and supportive environment in one of Sydney best harbourside locations. All staff are entitled to complimentary tickets to STC productions.

Work Experience

Sydney Theatre Company's work experience program is open to secondary students with a passion for theatre and the arts. In 2014 we will be piloting a new format for work experience, with a week long program taking place in the September school holidays. Applications for work experience in 2014 are now closed. You can find further details on the work experience page.


Sydney Theatre Company runs an internship program with key tertiary institutions in NSW, and internationally with Boston University. These internships are managed and coordinated directly through these institutions.

Unfortunately, due to the busy nature of a large theatre company, we are unable to accept unsolicited Internship applications outside of these established programs.

Positions currently available

Sydney Theatre Company is seeking an exceptional Artistic Director to succeed Andrew Upton at the end of 2015.

STC is one of Australia’s most successful and acclaimed performing arts institutions and one of the most substantial theatre companies in the world, presenting around 16 programs each year in four Sydney venues in addition to undertaking national and international tours, educational events and art form development programs.

Our new artistic leader must be able to attract and inspire the top theatre talent in Australia and the world; identify and develop the artists of tomorrow; and produce, in the words of our founding Artistic Director Richard Wherrett, “first class theatrical entertainment for the people of Sydney… theatre that is grand, vulgar, intelligent, challenging and fun.”

Working alongside the Executive Director and leading a talented and committed organisation, the Artistic Director will ensure the high standards of the company are met in all areas, and that programs are as sustainable as they are exciting.
