HotHouse Theatre is one of only a handful of regionally based full-time professional theatre companies who make and present work.

We are also one of handful of companies with a commitment to presenting a program of 100% Australian theatre works.

Though commissions and our residency program we play a critical role in the development of new Australian theatre. We invest in regional professional
practice. We collaborate with artists, locally and nationally, to engage and inspire audiences. Through shared experiences, we stimulate the imagination of the region. We inspire
insight into our humanity through creative interrogations that reflect the world around us, locally and nationally.

Help us share the feelings, thinking, and experience that only live theatre can provide.

Over the last few years, your donations have enabled us to:

  • Upgrade our lighting and sound equipment
  • Travel our shows to other venues
  • Refurbish the foyer
  • Make shows available for our community at an accessible price

When you donate to HotHouse you support:

  • the development of local artists through professional development opportunities;
  • the telling of local stories through the creation of new works;
  • the development of Australian work through our residency program; and
  • the presentation of Australian made theatre from around the country

Our donation program has several levels. You can choose to be publicly acknowledged or remain anonymous. Either way, you will be helping HotHouse build a stronger, more creative community.

A gift of $1000 can support a creative development program for local artists and new works

A gift of $500 helps us provide a stipend for an artist for a week
