Annual Giving

‘My love of theatre and Shakespeare is where I started, but the Bell family is why I stay.’
Bell Shakespeare Annual Donor

Ticket sales alone do not cover operating costs each year, which means the support of our annual donors is critical to ensuring we can continue to stage Shakespeare’s classics, commit to a rigorous touring schedule and deliver our renowned education and outreach programs to students, teachers and communities throughout Australia. Our annual donors are at the heart of what we do. 

Our 2018 Impact Reportdetails the direct and positive changes experienced through engaging with our 2018 programs.

Shakespeare has inspired millions. You can help inspire more.

Making and touring works of scale to theatres and schools across the country is a costly undertaking, and it’s only thanks to our incredible Supporting Cast family of donors that we are able to do what we do.

From dramaturgy, casting, sets and costumes, to voice and movement coaching, sound and lighting, and all of the resources needed to take productions and our Teaching Artists on the road and around the country, our Supporting Cast allows us to allocate funds where they’re needed most across the Company.

Every single gift, regardless of size, makes a difference.
