SOMEONE NEW 2022
In 2022, we're out of the woods now - and we're ready and eager to make new things with new artists. We're making PODCASTS, VIDEOS, hosting PLAY READINGS and more!
Someone New is a theatre company based in Geelong, Victoria, that's passionate about giving people the resources and education in performing and creating theatre. We organise workshops, theatre events, film screenings and productions - and now, since isolation, we're pushing the boundaries of online performance!

SOMEONE NEW MERCHANDISE
We're thrilled to announce our plans for 2022: it's been a while since we could last open properly, and we have a range of different events, productions, and competitions. We're lockdown-proof, opportunity-heavy, and ready to go!
It's been a tough few years, and we're getting the Someone New team together again - in person! - to plan, adapt, reinvent, and finish new theatre. Full-length performances, one-act plays, and scripts for radio and podcast performances: this is where the magic happens!
We've been waiting all 2020 and 2021 for this, and we can finally hold a real, live performance in a wonderful new venue! We'll be holding live auditions, and looking to fill a variety of production roles for this mid-year performance.
We'll be releasing more information closer to, so keep an eye on our socials, and sign up for our mailing list to be the first to hear about auditions and expressions of interest.
