Since starting Australian Theatre Live we have been passionate about giving everyone a chance to view spectacular Aussie theatre - regardless of how remotely they live, how much money is in their wallet or their ability to get to a physical theatre.
With COVID-19 shattering the core of our live performance industry, we see this a new opportunity to reconnect everyone in Australia with why the arts have always been so vital: to bring us together with shared stories, new perspectives and some belly-laughs along the way.
To date, we have filmed 9 major theatrical productions, distributed 6 of them to 44 venues across rural, regional and remote Australia to thousands of appreciative arts-lovers across the country. We have employed hundreds of film and theatre artists and performers, many of whom are hurting from the crises at hand.
Australian Theatre Live is a not-for-profit organisation. Your donation can assist us in rolling out more online theatre screenings, including providing online education packages to schools either free or at a low cost. If we exceed our goal, we can release additional titles that have been filmed but not yet released.
Thank you for banding together during this time. Whether you can donate, share, send us a comment or even just enjoy the theatre - please know how appreciated you are in our community.
The lights may be off in the theatres, but the power of theatre burns as brightly as ever!
