Theatre Access Program

Our commitment to ensuring that more young people across Australia can experience the joy and creativity of live theatre.

Designed to do more than just offer free tickets; it’s about making the entire theatre-going experience accessible. We focus on eliminating the hurdles that can make such experiences seem out of reach, particularly the cost of transportation, which is often a major obstacle.

How does it work?
With the help from our donors, we support not only complimentary access to performances but also help with transportation costs.
Our approach
  • We plan tours to over 50 communities, focusing on areas that are often overlooked, like regional and remote locations.

  • Local venues help us connect with schools and community groups that need our support the most, especially those with limited resources and schools with an ICSEA (Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage) score below 1000.

  • We build partnerships with organisations and philanthropists to enhance our reach and impact.

Free or discounted tickets
  • If your school or community group is in need, please contact us to see if we can assist with either free or discounted tickets.

  • We have limited availability and hope to grow our fund through donations and partner support.

  • Please contact our team if you would like to find out more.

Support with transport
  • We can provide financial assistance for transportation for those schools approved for free or discounted tickets.

  • This is typically one (1) large coach return and our team can work with the selected schools on the best approach to arrange this transport.

Who is eligible?

We prioritise schools with a need for support, particularly those with limited resources. Our focus is on reaching communities that are often overlooked, including in regional and remote locations, as well as schools with an ICSEA value lower than 1000. To express your interest in participating in our Theatre Access Program program, please submit an expression of interest via our online form. Please understand we may not be able to meet every request. For more information about the Index of Community Socio-educational Advantage (ICSEA), you can find details here.

We want to ensure equity and greater access to live theatre for more young people across Australia. But we need your help! ”
