Shine a Spotlight on Tomorrow

Spotlight on Tomorrow Image

It’s been a tough, uncertain and challenging time for everyone with lockdowns, lockouts and lock-ins. The arts sector has been hit especially hard and our theatre-making family would love your help to keep the spotlight trained on tomorrow.

We want to make sure that when the cloud lifts, we’re ready to welcome audiences back to the theatre.

Your donation will help our artists who’ve been unable to work because of venue closures. It will help us commission a range of diverse new writers, including First Nations voices, backed by our expanded Resident Artistic team. It will mean we can rollout community and education programs for tomorrow’s artists and theatre-makers and share highlights of our work with audiences online.

If you are able to support us at this time, please consider making a donation to our End of Financial Year campaign. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and will go a long way to helping combat the huge impact on our existing and planned work with our writers, directors, designers, composers and actors.

Help us keep the spotlight focused on tomorrow, because without you – our audience – there is no theatre. You make what we do possible.

Thank you for your generosity.

You can make a donation online here or phone 08 8415 5333.

  • 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 have 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.

  • Since 2002, a fabulous group of inspiring women have supported State Theatre Company South Australia. Over the past 17 years, Dramatic Women have collectively supported outstanding artists and helped bring great theatrical works to the stage.
