Brown’s Mart produces 4 productions per year encouraging and preferencing the employment of NT artists.

  • Two of these will be new works conceived, driven and generated by artists living and working in the Top End of the NT. 
  • One production will be an extant work chosen by the Brown’s Mart Artistic Reference Team (BMART) in consultation with educators and the artistic community. It will have links to the NT senior school syllabus but may not be a prescribed text. 
  • The fourth production will be an Artist drivenwork which is chosen by a panel comprising of a representative of the BMART, the Artistic Director and an artistic peer. This production will give an opportunity for artists to work in a more experimental space. Giving the freedom to choose the genre, style and mode of creation. 


Brown’s Mart will work with directors and playwrights in encouraging local casting. Auditions will be announced via the artists’ email distribution list, Theatre Network Darwin Facebook page, on our website and via our e-newsletter. To join the artists’ email distribution list email
