Theatre is live and immediate so why not be part of it? Audience members sharing a moment in time is what separates theatre from all other art forms and Crack Theatre Festival artists are taking advantage of that element.
This year we have plenty of shows that take you out of your seat to become part of the art. No time for passive audience members with these shows. Pick up your pens, warm up your voice and stretch your legs. Here’s how you can participate in Crack and have your fifteen seconds in the limelight.
