Become a Hayes Supporter

Hayes has seen some wonderful friendships onstage, but it’s the wider Hayes family that we need to turn to now to ask for help.

It’s only through your support that we can continue to stage some of the best musical theatre in Australia and support our extraordinary artists.

Why donate to Hayes?

Hayes is currently the only company in Australia that develops and produces brand new Australian musicals. It’s expensive and it takes a long time – but we believe that Australian stories should be seen and heard onstage.

We also produce and present some extraordinary musicals in our intimate theatre. And while the experience of sitting just a few feet from the action is what makes Hayes so special, our 111 seats can’t quite pay for the shows we put on.

Where will my money go?

Towards our productions and developing new Australian musicals. Hayes has extremely low administrative overheads compared to most arts organisations, so all the money we raise ends up onstage.

If you’ve ever admired the set, the costumes, or the way the whole show seems to come together so seamlessly – chances are it’s because of the generosity of our supporters who helped pay for design elements or those extra choreography sessions.

What can I expect if I donate to Hayes?

In the short term – our undying gratitude and the knowledge that you’ve done an amazing thing! (as well as a receipt for your tax-deductible donation).

If you donate $200 or more you’ll be acknowledged on our donor board in the Hayes foyer and on our website.

Donors who contribute $1000 or more will be invited to supporter events.

If you donate $3000 or more, we’ll welcome you to the opening nights of our Hayes produced shows.

If you donate $5000 or more, we’ll see you for opening night of every musical throughout the year!
