OnStage: The Series gives emerging artists the unmissable opportunity to perform with the expansive, beautiful art deco auditorium as the backdrop of their stripped back set to an exclusive audience. The audio and lighting will be supported by mid-career professionals livelihoods have been affected by COVID-19. The behind-the-scenes production will also be assisted by students enrolled in event production courses who are participating in invaluable hands-on work experience.

The stage at The Palais will be made accessible via a ramp that will be built from the auditorium onto the stage. The program is supported by RISE, an Australian Government initiative that provides funding to various arts and entertainment sector organisations to assist in the presentation of cultural and creative projects.
