Support Us

Polyglot Theatre is a not-for-profit organisation. Our vision is of a future where children are powerful: artistically, socially and culturally. You can support this vision and our work by becoming a donor or sponsor, or by sharing your knowledge of the company with your network.

“I’m drawn to the integrity of the organisation. In the art, the staff, the commitment to children and in the vision of the company.” Polyglot supporter, 2017



Over 50% of our income is self-generated including generous support from donations and philanthropic grants. Our supporters are passionate about our vision and work, and their generosity  is a significant part of Polyglot’s vibrancy and sustainability.

Donations to Polyglot are used for:

  • Supporting the sustainability and strength of Polyglot Theatre to produce, perform and tour in Australia and overseas
  • Investing in Polyglot artists to learn, adapt and push boundaries with Polyglot’s renowned child-led theatre
  • Creative development for new performances that inspire and motivate children ages 0-12 to embrace their creativity and potential
  • Work with communities and young people to form meaningful, positive collaborations
  • Advocating for the children’s theatre sector to receive the acknowledgement it deserves

Donations of $250 or more are recognised through our Polyglot’s Circle donor program. Members of the Polyglot Circle have the opportunity to attend special Polyglot events, meet our creative team, and learn more about our child-led art play theatre works.
