Get Involved

Each October long weekend, The Crack Theatre Festival takes over empty spaces in Newcastle to create the opportunity for artists from all disciplines, with varied skills, and at all stages in their career to flex their creative muscles and hone their craft. But there’s more than one way to skin a cat get involved with Crack Theatre Festival!

Artist Applications

Knock heads and mince words in our ‘Talk’ panel and forum series, sharpen your creative edge in our ‘Make’ master class and workshop series, and gain valuable feedback, performance experience, and a safe space to try new ideas through our ‘Work’ performance showcase.

Applications for 2017 are open from 1 Feb – 31 March, 2017. Keep an eye out for more information for the application process! 

Volunteers and Interns

As a FREE Festival, we rely on a strong team of volunteers each year to help make the Festival an extraordinary experience. We need people with production and technical experience, administration and marketing experience, front of house and bar experience, and those with no experience but a whole lot of passion.
If you’re interested in volunteering or completing a placement with us, please contact us on to discuss current opportunities.

Work with Us

Each year we have a limited number of paid positions available within the Festival, that really help us get things happening and which recognise the mountain of effort that goes into this event.

There are currently no positions available.
