Support Theatre Works


Ongoing support of Theatre Works is vital to foster the development of Australian theatre and to provide a forum for all that is creative and dynamic in St Kilda and Melbourne.

After 30 years of staging hundreds of productions and supporting thousands of actors, producers, directors, designers, stage managers and so many other artists that have come through our doors, we are launching our BRIDGE donor program.  To put it simply, we need your help! 20% of our funding comes from people like you and we simply would not be able to exist without our donors, big and small.

Theatre Works is more than a venue; we are a not for profit organisation passionately committed to enabling artists to achieve their creative dreams, bridging the gap in the industry where independent creative artists can work on a viable scale and emerging artists of exceptional skill can hone their craft. We give artists the opportunity to take risks, create, develop and stage their productions here in St Kilda where we are such an intrinsic part of the cultural landscape.

 Don’t forget us as we approach the end of the financial year – an ideal time to become a donor and become part of our BRIDGE donor program.  All donations above $2 are tax deductible, given our Australia Taxation Office Deductible Gift Recipient status.

 There are six levels to the program and every donation helps, whether it is $2 or $20,000.

 To partner with us in enabling creative artists to achieve their creative dreams, become:

 (1) Supporter ($25-$499)
(2) Advocate ($500-$999)
(3) Guardian ($1,000-$4,999)
(4) Champion ($5,000-$9,999)
(5) Ambassador ($10,000-$19,999)
(6) Visionary ($20,000+)

 and choose where you would like to see your donation directed towards:

 (1) Theatre Works mentoring program
(2) Theatre Works creative development program
(3) Theatre Works productions
(4) Theatre Works general

Make a donation online securely through GIVENOW's secure giving portal - please click here - or contact the General Manager, Mark Crees, for more information.

And let us take this opportunity to thank you for your support of independent theatre in Australia, the engine room of tomorrow and the creative risk-takers of today.
