Our FIRST READ CLUB is a circle of generous donors who are committed to the creation of exceptional new Australian work for young people.

It offers members exclusive access to our creative process, in particular, the way in which we ensure that the child’s voice remains central to our work.

Members will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet with the writers, directors and creative teams behind our productions to glean insights & discuss the evolution of the work
  • Attend exclusive events including design presentations, costume & puppet parades, the first day of rehearsal & opening night celebrations
  • Participate in feedback sessions with priority schools partners to hear the surprising perspectives that inform our work
  • Bring your special young person to child-friendly events

As less than 5% of our operational and creative development funding comes from government support and we are deeply reliant on the support of donors so we can continue to make and tour quality, award-winning work here and overseas.

FIRST READ CLUB is open to all supporters who donate $2,500 per year which will go directly to the creation of new Australian work.
