National Touring Selector Autumn Round

Feb 07, 2019

NTS Autumn Round

It’s time once again for a National Touring Selector online round – NTS Autumn Round

The NTS Autumn Round gives artists and producers the opportunity to offer up tour ready shows or ideas for development to performing arts programmers. While programmers have the unique opportunity to register interest online for productions that they wish to assist &/or include in their future programs.

There are 3 stages to the Online Round:

Stage 1: is for producers to create or update Productions Listings on the National Touring Selector platform and then enter them in to the Autumn Round.

Stage 2:  is for programmers to research and register interest in productions. Expressing Interest is not a contract. It is the programmers way of saying they’re interested in starting a conversation.

Stage 3:  is the time for producers and programmers to connect. Once interest has been expressed Producers can contact the programmer direct to start the conversation.
