Friends of the Theatre Royal

You can be part of Australia’s oldest working theatre, an Australian icon, a Tasmanian treasure by joining the Friends of the Theatre Royal.

Here’s what we aim to do

We assist in promoting the Theatre Royal to the people of Tasmania and Australia, its cultural and historical significance and its programs and events.

The Friends of the Theatre Royal actively contribute to the Theatre by providing support for the Student Subscription Program, assisting young people from a variety of organisations to attend the Theatre, fundraising, providing archival and research support and helping to improve the Theatre’s facilities in a variety of ways.

Here’s how you benefit

  • You’ll be part of a group with similar interests
  • You’ll learn about the Theatre Royal, its history and workings
  • You’ll have the satisfaction of making an active contribution to fundraising and special projects
  • You’ll have the chance to see behind the scenes and to meet cast and crew
  • You’ll be part of exclusive events organised especially for and by the Friends
  • You’ll receive a regular newsletter with up-to-the-minute news of the theatre, the Friends, and the Friends’ offers and activities
