How we make an impact
Shakespeare and his great works are a means by which we can explore our common aspirations and concerns. That’s why we work to ensure our programs engage people of all ages and backgrounds, and reach all corners of the country, from inner city suburbs to remote locations across Australia.
We ensure schools and community groups can access our mainstage theatre productions, giving many people opportunities they might not otherwise have had.
We travel to regional and remote areas, staging productions in school halls, community centres and theatres – wherever we’re wanted and needed – and deliver interactive drama-based activities and performances that instill in our young people a love of language and an appreciation for the complexities of humanity.
Support from individual donors and partners enables us to reach communities we might not otherwise be able to reach with our programs; from empowering young women in Western Sydney, to disenfranchised remote schools where many students have below average literacy levels, to inspire passion into their studies, unpacking Shakespeare’s plays, demystifying the language, making them accessible and fun.
