Send a Disadvantaged Child to the Theatre
Without Patch Theatre the next generation of theatre audiences will lose a chance to spark their curiosity and experience the wonder that only live theatre can provide.
A little support means a lot. A tax deductible donation of $10 will enable a single disadvantaged child to experience theatre, often for the first time.
Thanks to the support of the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation and our donors we are able to provide free and subsidised tickets to over 3,000 disadvantaged students a year.
Cost is the biggest barrier to children attending a show, meaning many children miss out on this formative experience.
Support from donors enables us to send students from the most disadvantaged schools across SA to the theatre.
Just $10 will enable a disadvantaged child to experience the magic of theatre, often for the first time.
$10 sends a child to the theatre
$300 sends a class of students to the theatre
50 Years of Patch Theatre!
At Patch, we create theatre that engages and excites children by exploring the world from a child’s point of view. We work closely with children, artists and educators to create unique performances, tailored to young people.
Two million children around the world have experienced a Patch production.
Each year we perform to 40,000 children including those experiencing financial and geographical disadvantage.
In an increasingly changing world, it is vital for Patch to continue offering first theatre experiences to young audiences, exciting their imaginations with the magic of theatre, and inspiring the next generation of artists and audiences.
As Patch turns 50 in 2022, we invite you to join us in celebrating this important milestone by contributing to the making of new exciting experiences, allowing our young audiences to see the world around them in a new light.
Your support will enable Patch to continue to deliver world-class theatre around the globe which captures the curiosity of a child, wraps it in magic and ignites their imagination.
