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.

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.

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.


Every Stitch Counts Campaign

After 15 years of making critically acclaimed theatre for you in our little home, Red Stitch desperately needs some technical improvements!

Many of our lights have seen better days, our sound system needs some TLC, and our backstage area is … well … less than illustrious.

To bring our technical capabilities up to a standard befitting the high quality work we make, we need to upgrade some infrastructure.

The good news is that until 19th of May when you donate to our Every Stitch Counts campaign, your gift will have 4x the power to make a difference.

That’s right, four times! Some of our major donors have agreed to match every dollar you give to this campaign. Then, in turn, Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus 1 fund will match that overall amount, up to the value of $50,000!

This is an incredible opportunity for you to make a big difference without a big cost. And it couldn’t have come at a better time for a small organisation like us.

If you would like to help, please donate.

Thank you,

Every Stitch Counts

Corporate Partnerships

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.
