We’re ready to light up Lismore’s nightlife!

We’re delighted to reveal the new look Lismore City Hall! Lighting up the building for the first time was a very special moment for us, as it signifies the final stages of a two year project made possible thanks to funding from the NSW Government’s Regional Cultural Fund. We can’t wait to welcome you all back to the Hall, when we’re able to do so legally and safely. 

You can see more images (including the stunning fountain area!) and read all about it here.

All NORPA Season shows and other performances scheduled to take place up until September have unfortunately been cancelled or postponed. The Box Office team are working through contacting all subscribers and ticket holders, we appreciate your patience. We’ll keep you updated on any changes, you can also check the current status of upcoming shows on our website.

Thank you to everyone who has been able to generously donate the value of their subscriptions and tickets to NORPA. A hundred standing ovations for you! Your support is deeply appreciated and means the world to us in these unprecedented times.

Our making and creating of new works is continuing with a number of exciting creative projects in the early stages of development. We look forward to sharing behind the scenes sneak peeks and announcements in the very near future.

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and each other ❤


Journey to an Unnamed World

Journey to an Unnamed World (2016), a NORPA production supported by Catholic Schools Office, Diocese of Lismore and ATYP (Australian Theatre for Young People).

After the success of the incredible and immersive Journey to An Unnamed World in 2016, NORPA and the Catholic Schools Office are teaming up again to create two new theatre pieces for young people.

Inside the Forest (working title) is being designed and created for Stage 5 English and Drama students. Local writer and performer Kate Mc Dowell is busily researching and writing, alongside NORPA Eduction Coordinator Frauke Huhn and Kathy Cates, our assistant director for the project. They are delving deep into the forest to explore classic texts and personal stories to create this new work.

Illuminate (working title) is aimed at Stage 2 primary school students. We’ll delight and provoke the students around the subject of their local history and the amazing stories that places and objects hold. This interactive, part game/part theatre work is being created by Valley Lipcer and writer Caleb Lewis. Valley was co-director on Journey to an Unnamed World
