15th July 2018
For the very first time, 42 prestigious Helpmann Awards will be presented across two nights; the Helpmann Awards Curtain Raiser at the Sydney Town Hall on Sunday 15 July and the Helpmann Awards Ceremony at the Capitol Theatre on Monday 16 July. The Helpmann Awards are the premier celebration of Australia’s vibrant live performance industry. The awards recognise distinguished achievement and excellence in Australia’s live performance sectors including musicals, contemporary music, comedy, opera and classical music, theatre, ballet, dance and physical theatre, presentation for children, regional touring and cabaret. A new initiative for 2018 is the Helpmann Awards Curtain Raiser which will celebrate the artists who work behind the scenes and in supporting roles. An industry insider night to inspire and engage, the Curtain Raiser gives profile and kudos to the Industry’s artisans. This event will feature performances by up and coming artists and be hosted by the Industry’s most distinguished luminaries in an intimate cocktail, cabaret style event nestled in the glamourous surrounds of the Sydney Town Hall.
