Richard is hideous. And Richard was born knowing that he would one day be a ruler. 

In 2017 Kate Mulvany will take on Shakespeare's most conniving villain in Richard 3, and you can purchase tickets to our Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne season today!

For a very limited time we are offering 10% off full and concession tickets to Richard 3 and The Merchant Of Venice when purchased together.  

Experience both plays in 2017 in Sydney, Melbourne, or Canberra and secure your early bird discount.

Exclusively available for one month only through our Box Office, call 1300 305 730 or email

We are delighted to launch our Artistic Director’s Circle, hosted by Peter Evans. 

This annual membership offers you insider opportunities to all productions from our mainstage and education seasons across the year. 

A truly unique experience for the theatre lover, each membership is valued at $12,500 (including tax-deductible donation of $10,000). For more information, email us by clicking the link below. 

Our extensive national Learning programmes and mainstage productions would not be able to achieve all they do without the commitment and generosity of our donor family.  

This Christmas, we encourage you to consider giving Australians who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity, the chance to experience Shakespeare in their own classroom or at an iconic performing arts venue in 2017.
