The intimacy between artists and audiences in live theatre is powerful. This energy, on and off the stage, is at the heart of the artform. As a not-for-profit arts organisation, every donation is valuable. We rely on the combined support of many people to raise funds for our current programs and to contribute to the growth and development of theatre in South Australia. Your donation goes towards supporting these vital programs that could not exist without your philanthropic support.

Together we create extraordinary things.

All donations large or small, make a big difference and we appreciate each and every one of them. Donations of $2 and more are tax deductible. Donate

State Ed Giving Circle

Theatre opens minds to new worlds. It can uplift, push us out of our comfort zone and allow us to experience life from another’s perspective. Our Education Program is one of the country’s most successful, providing more than 11,500 young people, school students and high school teachers annually with the opportunity to experience outstanding live theatre, hear their stories on stage, and actively participate in workshops and work experience.

The State Ed program includes daytime performances specifically for high school students, and a Q&A with the cast, as well as all sorts of workshops for both students and teachers. Philanthropic support for this program have led us to expand our regional touring opportunities and reach more of South Australia. Donors to this circle supports the making and regional tour of our 2018 Education show Terrestrial.
