JOIN OUR INNER CIRCLE

Our Malthouse Muses are our inner circle of philanthropic supporters who intimately share our vision for making theatre that defines our city and our world. Our Muses are our closest friends—so much so, they're basically part of the family. 

Why Become a Muse? 

When you become a Malthouse Muse by making a tax deductible gift of $250+, you support the entire family of artists who work with us to create the future of theatre. You help support: 

  • The creation of new Indigenous works 
  • New play commissions from emerging Australian theatre makers 
  • Nurturing artists through dedicated development programs 
  • Education programs, which provide opportunities for students to experience theatre 
  • The Stories of M production archive and living history of Malthouse 

As a Malthouse Muse, you will receive: 

  • Invitations to exclusive Malthouse Theatre events 
  • Exclusive behind the scenes access with our Artistic Director and Artistic Team 
  • Personal support from our dedicated Development Team 
  • Acknowledgement of your support on our website, printed season materials, and in our foyer 
  • First notice about all upcoming productions and events, before they are announced to the public 
  • First access to tickets for all Malthouse Theatre and partner events, before they go on sale to the public
