Support our Artists

While we await our return to theatre, we are grateful and excited to be able to present new forms of theatrical storytelling through projects like DECAMERON 2.0. Created in response to our current world and crisis, DECAMERON 2.0, a collaboration with ActNow Theatre, is set to be one of the largest and most innovative digital theatre projects to come out of the lockdown. Over 10 weeks, more than 30 diverse South Australian writers, directors and actors will be producing 100 original characters and stories.  Engaging particularly with First Nations, queer, and culturally diverse stories, this project will also provide mentoring opportunities for emerging artists.

State Theatre Company South Australia are able to share content like this through the generous support of you, our audience. If you are able donate, it will help our artists and theatre-making family who’ve been unable to work because of venue closures. It will mean we can continue to roll-out community and education programs for the next generation of artists and theatre-makers.

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and all donations, large or small, will go a long way to support our existing and planned work.

Thank you for your generosity.

  • 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.
