Guide Dogs are working in partnership with Riverside Theatre, Parramatta to ensure their new audio description service hits the mark for people with low vision or blindness, and to ensure their venue and programs are as accessible as possible.

We would like to invite a small group of Clients to form a feedback group for the Theatre, and are now taking expressions of interest. Please contact Bowie Ng at

The commitment requires Clients to attend three shows and to provide response in the format of a small group discussion (roughly 30 minutes) after the first show and surveys after the latter shows. To thank you for your service, Riverside Theatre is able to offer all three shows at a discount of $105 (this is a saving 45% off). You may also bring a friend or support person with your companion card, If you do not currently have a companion card, please get in touch and we may be able to organise tickets until your new card is approved.

If you are unable to commit to all three shows but are still interested in this program, please still get in touch.

You can also attend these shows by buying a ticket individually on Riverside’s website.

The Appleton Ladies Potato Race

8pm, Thursday 6 May

Riverside Theatre presents An Ensemble Theatre Production The Appleton Ladies Potato Race, written by Melanie Tait and directed by Priscilla Jackman. Appleton is a small country town being forced into the present with a recent influx of wealthy city slickers, tree changers and refugees. Simmering tensions come to a head when new GP Penny Anderson discovers that the famous Appleton Potato Race awards $1000 prize money to men, and a measly $200 to women. When Penny decides to take steps to restore gender parity and coax Appleton into the 21st century, little could she have anticipated the spiralling, hilarious culture war that would follow. Inspired by real life events and featuring a cast of five fabulous women, The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race is a funny, honest and heart-warming story about upsetting the potato cart and standing up for your principles.

A touch tour at 6.30 pm prior to the show. The tour will only take place if people have booked into it.



7.30pm, Friday 6 August

Packemin Productions and Riverside Theatres present Wicked. Wicked tells the incredible untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz and formed an unlikely but profound friendship: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will test their friendship to the limit and ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

A touch tour at 6pm prior to the show. The tour will only take place if people have booked into it.
