productionART theatre and events is a production company specifically set up to support and inspire regional arts practise. Based in Bathurst – Central West NSW, we have recognised a real need for production support to develop professional work in regional areas.
This company is not solely developed to work with professional companies , but also to support, mentor and assist regional communities and community groups to develop events, festivals and productions. All profits other than operational and crewing costs go back into acquiring and upgrading equipment to further the needs of future projects.
Who are we? We are two regional theatre and event professionals that have over 50 years experience between us. We are;
Becky Russell – a lighting and management professional with extensive experience in artistic, technical and project direction. She is currently the technical director of Lingua Franca Dance Theatre. (See Becs Theatre Projects in Archive for more work history)
