Hearts In A Row

Hearts In A Row

A visit to the theatre is a rare and wonderful thing for many people. It fulfils a universal need for storytelling, for learning, for being transported to another time, another place – inside the mind of another person.

However not everyone has the financial or geographical ability to enjoy a live theatre experience. So, in 2005 we created Hearts In A Row to provide people from socio-economically challenged schools and charitable groups with the opportunity to be transported to another world, through Shakespeare’s timeless words. You can help us to provide that unique experience.

Every Hearts In A Row recipient attends a Bell Shakespeare theatre production in one of the country’s most iconic performing arts venues, including Sydney Opera House, Canberra Theatre Centre, and Arts Centre Melbourne. They also receive a complimentary program and soft drink voucher. But perhaps the most vital component is that every attendee can take part in a pre-show talk with an Arts Educator, designed to make sure they walk away at the end of the performance enriched, enthused and enlivened by the experience.

In 2015 we celebrated 10 years of the program, and were particularly delighted to welcome back guests from The Wayside Chapel and Wesley Mission, both of whom have attended Hearts In A Row performances every year since the program started in 2005.
