Brown’s Mart embarked on an education program in mid 2014 and delivered its first
production in early 2015. The education program presents a locally produced professional
production of a syllabus linked worked. The opportunity for students to see a professionally
produced production of a text they are studying is one that is readily available for students in
other capital cities of Australia. This opportunity for Darwin students is a four-hour plane
This program seeks to develop the relationship further than just audience and maker. Along
with student notes and a question and answer forum session following the performance,
teachers are invited into the rehearsal room to see a dress rehearsal, and to discuss the
upcoming production with the cast and creatives and selected students are invited to
immerse themselves in the technical elements of the production providing a hands on
opportunity to create the work.
The education program helps with students understanding of the text, it improves student
empathy and builds the future audience for locally made live theatre. The program gives
theatre makers an opportunity to work on the “classics” and continues to provide
employment opportunities for Territory artists.
In 2017 Brown’s Mart presented A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen.
