As Red Stitch celebrates its 15 Year Anniversary we look to a future with expanding horizons, but we need your support.
Red Stitch is renowned as Australia’s premier ensemble theatre company, producing critically acclaimed theatre for national audiences. Our unique artist-driven model is essential in realising our mission to advance the vitality of theatre in Australia, through nurturing artists and promoting integrity in our craft.
We support new Australian writers at crucial stages in their career, tour regionally and nationally and provide a powerhouse platform where emerging and established actors, directors and designers can produce work of a world class standard.
As an independent company, we generate 32% of our operating budget from tickets sales and only receive 10% in government funding. Because we believe so passionately in our work, our artists sacrifice up to 70% of their wages, which is equivalent to a massive 46% of our operational budget
Our goal is to pay our core ensemble and guest artists more appropriately for their hard work, and bring salaries up to award rates. Charitable donations of any size play a vital role in ensuring Red Stitch will remain a vibrant beacon of theatre in Australia for years to come. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Our Kindred members are like family. They make and annual donation of $1000 or over, and enjoy invitations to VIP events like cocktail parties, opening nights and exclusive access to behind-the-scenes events with the artists, which provide an intimate interaction with the creative process of the company and its work.
We provide bespoke partnership opportunities which enrich, and enhance your business. Theatre is a medium for communicating stories and ideas, which asks big questions about shared human experience. Becoming a Red Stitch Partner is an excellent opportunity to play a part in the ongoing conversations that theatre elicits, whilst accessing a unique, well-targeted platform to promote your business and extend your client base.
Leaving a legacy provides security to the company and ensures that the beauty and power of our performances will be there for future audiences to enjoy.
