About the Willoughby Performing Arts Unit (WPAU)

The Performing Arts Unit of Willoughby City Council (WPAU) is a diverse support service that focuses on our community’s performance based arts needs while strategically balancing financial and social requirements.

We are keen to enrich the cultural vitality of Willoughby City and beyond with a range of performances, venues and support programs that benefit the whole community.

Our two main areas of activity are:

  • Generating engaging performances
    This entails producing and presenting world-class shows and artists as well as a huge range of local talent. The award-winning Willoughby Symphony Orchestra and Choir (WSOC) is recognised throughout the country as a role model for meaningful community development through the performing arts. It exists to enhance the cultural viability of Willoughby City and beyond by providing performers and audiences with the highest quality musical experience possible.

  • Managing venues
    We manage a range of purpose-built performance venues, which also involves converting generic spaces into dynamic performance venues as required. Our experienced operations team has expertise in show sound/lighting, ticketing, theatre/live show management, event planning, hospitality and more.
