Calling all theatre makers!

DOOR 3 marks the entrance to the Diane Cilento Studio — Queensland Theatre’s up-close and intimate venue whose namesake was a beloved actress and patron of the arts.

In 2024, DOOR 3 will also become an entry-point for three Queensland-based theatre collectives to stage three bold and blistering independent theatre works in three sharp seasons in the Diane Cilento Studio.

Expressions of interest closed 11:59pm Sunday 4 February 2024.
