Theatre Heritage Australia

We’re losing our rich theatre history! You can help! By making a tax deductible donation you can make a difference to preserving our theatre history for the generations to come.

Our goal in 2022 is to raise $10,000 to enable THA to digitise and publish historic ephemera, photographic, film and manuscript material relating to the history of Australian theatre and make it available for research and educational purposes.

Theatre Heritage Australia (founded in 1995 as Victoria Theatres Trust) is a volunteer-run charity which promotes and encourages study and research into Australia’s theatre history; preservation, renovation and use of Australia’s theatres; and identification, documentation and preservation of items relating to Australia’s theatre history.

In recent years, THA has undertaken a number of major digitisation projects, including the JCW Scene Books , The Riley/Hailes Scrapbook and The Falk Album  . Help us continue this important work by making a donation.

Please note: All donations over $2 are tax deductible. See below for ways to donate, or contact us to discuss other donation options.
