The Empire Theatres Foundation supports young people to achieve their goals in the performing arts, from the beginning of their learning to nurturing professional practice. Workshops, projects, bursaries and other opportunities are provided to allow the region’s best to excel.

Your kind donation assists us to provide these opportunities and allow young people of all ages to engage with the arts and benefit from creative expression. Donate today to put dreams on stage.

The Empire Theatres are proud to be associated with our Patron, acclaimed actor Geoffrey Rush and Fellows, Gina Jeffreys, Judy Morris and Shane Withington.
