Polyglot Theatre turns 40 in 2018 – help us celebrate and see your donation double!
Extraordinary theatrical experiences for children and their families
Powerful and transformative community projects
Creative exploration and collaboration with children
Leadership in Australia’s Theatre for Young Audiences sector
Cultural diplomacy, creative exchange and international touring
For a company that began in 1978 with two people taking small shows to school halls, our 40th birthday is a big achievement. There’s a lot to celebrate, and we have bold plans for 2018. This is the year that will shape Polyglot’s future.
Our South Yarra home is bursting at the seams and it is time to move on! 27A Cromwell Road has witnessed so much extraordinary creativity and collaboration over the years. However, the time has come to find a new home that matches our ambitions for the future and connects us to a vibrant community of artists and young audiences. We look forward to sharing more exciting details about our plans soon…
We are investing in our people and sustainable growth by building Polyglot’s artistic leadership capacity through The Generator. This is a professional development program for our core artists in creative leadership and Polyglot’s unique approach to theatre-making, enabling us to create, collaborate and perform even more.
We are strengthening Polyglot’s role as an advocate for the importance of the arts in children’s development and the value of theatre for children. Ensuring children’s voices are valued and heard is central to Polyglot vision, and always will be.
We are continuing to create trailblazing theatre experiences for children, their families, and communities in Australia and around the world.
Of course the best thing about birthdays is…PRESENTS!
Please consider investing in the next 40 years of Polyglot Theatre and celebrating our special milestone with a birthday gift.
Every dollar that we raise up to $50,000 for our 40th birthday will be doubled by Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 matched funding.
