Kickstart the next 50 years!

Kickstart the next 50 years

In 2022 State Theatre Company South Australia celebrates 50 years. Fifty years of phenomenal work by outstanding South Australian and Australian storytellers. Fifty years of bonding audiences through imagination and empathy, launching careers and creating classics.
Thanks to our donors and theatre lovers like you, we’ve created landmark works; we have taken our work around Australia and overseas, spreading the word that South Australia is a truly creative and artistic society.

As we mark the milestone of our Golden Jubilee and celebrate 50 years of artistic achievement, we’re also looking to the future; a bright future full of great new artists and plays that inspire generations of South Australians to come.
We are seeking your support to help us kickstart this next half-century and ensure we maintain a theatre culture in South Australia that is vibrant, diverse and leaves more indelible cultural memories in the lives of audiences for years to come.

All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible – please make a donation to State Theatre Company South Australia

Thank you for your generosity.

Education 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, State Educate, 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.

State Educate 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 has led us to expand our regional touring opportunities and reach more of South Australia.

Donors to this circle supported the making and regional tour of our annual Education Show, as well as the State Educate program in general.

You can become a member or renew your membership online here. Your membership helps to support our 2022 regional touring show, Cathedral by Caleb Lewis.
