Lotterywest Shows on the Go
Lotterywest Shows on the Go is a community-driven touring model giving regional Western Australians the chance to curate what shows they’d like to see in their town. The program has provided high-quality entertainment to local audiences and galvanised shared community experiences for 27 years.
Shows on the Go farewell
“Touring is not something done by one person at one point of time, it is an ensemble of players over many years that makes magical experiences happen.”
On 3 October 2021, Regional Arts WA officially farewelled the Shows on the Go program, with a celebration at State Theatre Centre. At the celebration, Regional Arts WA Program Manager Philippa Maughan gave a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has made the program possible over 27 years. You can watch this speech in full below.
Change is in the air…
In June 2021, Minister David Templeman announced a $860,000 commitment to Shows on the Go over two years until mid-2023. From July 2021 onwards, Shows on the Go will be delivered by the team at CircuitWest who will continue to tour quality productions into regional WA, as well as the outer metropolitan area.
