Since 2009 this program has created many opportunities for individuals and organisations to experience the magic of live theatre.

Theatre Royal

The Theatre Royal is your Theatre. This beautiful building had its first performance in 1837 and has undergone many changes to keep it a contemporary theatre for today's audiences. The addition to the original Theatre Royal is the upgraded Box Office, Foyers and Bars and the Studio Theatre all located within the Hedberg, all  much improved facilities that honor the history. Thanks to the generous donations from the Applause donors we can ensure Theatre Royal is here in Hobart for generations to come.

Tasmanian Artists

Theatre Royal supports the Tasmanian Theatre Industry. Applause donations can assist local producers with additional funding. Theatre, especially creating new work, is expensive, so every little bit helps. 


We encourage you to consider supporting the Theatre Royal and remind you that donations (over $2) are tax deductible.

Your donation to the Theatre Royal will make a very real difference and will ensure we continue to develop an exciting, thriving and dynamic arts centre which is accessible for everyone.
