60th Anniversary Support Us

…if you want the refurbishment done right, then you need to get professionals to do the job, so…


60th Anniversary in style
Ensemble Theatre has an amazing history and, incredibly, we are celebrating our 60th anniversary, making us the longest running, non-funded professional theatre company in Australia.

Having almost reached 60, it is now time to upgrade the foyer, the bar and restaurant with a lick of paint. The improved look will allow audiences to feel more comfortable in the theatre’s surroundings. We’d also like to improve the hub of creativity by upgrading our rehearsal rooms and outdoor boatshed area. We are keen to get the refurbishments started for the 60th anniversary celebration, but without your generous support this will not be possible.

Donors who give $260+ will be invited to a special ‘opening night’, to be hosted by Mark Kilmurry in our upgraded rehearsal rooms, deck and bar, to celebrate our 60 years – be assured of a few surprises! The generous donors who give $6,000+ will be recognised in our foyer and on our website.


…and a big thank you to Andrew Hansen, Craig Reucassel and Chris Taylor.

philanthropic SUPPORT

Ensemble Theatre appreciates the ongoing generosity of our wonderful philanthropic supporters, the Balnaves Foundation, the Clitheroe Foundation and the Seaborn, Broughton and Walford Foundation. Their support enables us to engage with new audiences, nurture emerging practitioners, and offer disadvantaged youth audiences access to our productions.

Should you wish to support a special project, or your foundation has a special area of interest that you would like to discuss, we would be happy to explore possibilities with you.


Ensemble Theatre is supported by the Balnaves Foundation and the Clitheroe Foundation, both of which function as Private Ancillary Funds (PAFs). To learn more about setting up a PAF, visit the Philanthropy Australia website. We also welcome partnerships with PAF, trusts or foundations and would be happy to meet to discuss your areas of interest and how we may be able to work together towards a common goal.
