With your support, theatre opens doors

At Queensland Theatre we believe that theatre opens doors to worlds unknown, stories untold, and communities near and far.

For over 53 years Queensland Theatre has been opening doors for talented Queenslanders to inspire, entertain, challenge and delight.

Across our vast state are incredible places, First Nations cultures, and communities with stories to be told. Although barriers of distance, cost and isolation can keep us apart, theatre brings us together.

Your donation to Queensland Theatre before the end of the financial year will open doors to theatre for young people, artists and Queensland communities.

Queensland Theatre belongs to the people of Queensland. Our valued supporters are at the heart of all we do.

Your donation makes a difference:

  • This year, Queensland Theatre will perform to 60,000 audience members on mainstages and in Queensland communities, far and wide.
  • Donations affirm our deep commitment to Queensland stories, young people and the arts, regional engagement and creating great theatre.
  • Each year, Queensland Theatre hosts 5,500 young people in our theatres and in workshops as creators and theatre makers. Your donation may open the door to the wonder of the very first experience of live theatre for a young person.
  • Over 50% of the 1,600 students participating in The Scene Project — our largest educational offering — live in regional and remote areas. Schools participating grew in from 8 to 130 schools in the last 5 years, thanks to donations from individuals, philanthropists and donors. Your donation will help us meet demand, and offer a place to every school.
  • Young people learn skills in storytelling and stagecraft that also foster resilience, empathy and courage — these are skills for life.
  • It is largely due to the generosity of supporters which creates a home for Queensland artists and writers to showcase new work on our stages.

All donations, $2 and over are tax-deductible. Gifts of $1,000 or more are recognised in our Visionaries giving circle, where you can join other passionate supporters making a significant impact.

Real impact

As an advocate for The Scene Project, Gracie Hosie knows how it opened doors for her and her friends.

"Living in a small town, theatre meant performing on a tiny stage with classmates, and family cheering me on. Being exposed to the level of professionalism with Queensland Theatre artists working alongside us has been a phenomenal way for me to grow and and learn.”

Make your donation before 30 June and open doors to the world of theatre.
