Support Local Theatre-Making

Like many sectors, the arts are facing challenging times as we work through the implications of recent restrictions to continue connecting with our audiences.

Now, perhaps more than ever, we rely on your generosity to support our theatre-making today, tomorrow and into the future.

By choosing to support State Theatre Company South Australia you are helping us create phenomenal, transformational and inclusive theatre productions that reach audiences far and wide, breaking down the isolation experienced during 2020.

Your donation goes toward writing and staging new works, increasing access, realising exciting design concepts, reaching regional and education audiences, encouraging diverse voices and talent, and employing actors, designers, writers, directors and crew members to rehearse, perform and tour our productions.

Thank you for your support.

  • 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.
