When you donate to Malthouse Theatre, you support:

NEW THEATRE

Each year we commission emerging and established theatre-makers to tell Australian stories from new perspectives, sitting at the cutting edge of new Australian Theatre.

INDIGENOUS WORK
By commissioning emerging and established theatre-makers, we champion new Australian Indigenous work on our stages.

ARTIST DEVELOPMENT
Through residencies, workshops and artist placements, we provide essential creative support to the 200+ artists we work with each year.

EDUCATION
Young audiences and young artists are a vital part of what we do, as we offer an array of productions, workshops and events for students that stir the imagination.

INTERNATIONAL
Our international collaborations and touring increase the quality and diversity of our practice, building an international audience for new Australian work.

Malthouse Theatre invites you consider a planned gift through our Bequest program. For more information, please contact our Development Team.
