Every cent Holden Street makes goes back into the venue to support artists and keep the place running. However, it is still a commercial business and therefore not eligible for many of the funding sources. It simply doesn’t make enough to cover its demands and as a result we need help to support companies by providing Front of House, maintenance and up keep of the building.
We receive a great deal of help over the Fringe period through our volunteer program but we need to spread this throughout the year as well.
We have a huge amount of love and support from you, our audience and we’d like to ask you to become more involved and join our Friends of Holden Street Theatres.
From a night for ushering here and there through to skilled workers able to offer their expertise and time for specific projects, The Friends will help in many ways and the commitment level is up to you.
The Fringe volunteer program will still be in play to boost the numbers through this busy time but again you can commit to more if it’s of interest to you.
Through the friends you will keep Holden Street alive and running and enabling us to offer support to companies that need it to create performing arts.
You’ll meet like-minded people in a safe and fun environment and be involved in a creative community
You’ll be supporting live theatre and local artists and have the opportunity to meet local and international stars of the stage. And, you’ll be a part of one of the most important theatre venues in South Australia
On Tuesday the 27th of June we will be holding the first Friends Of Holden Street information evening so if you or someone you know might be interested to hear more or sign up to the Friends of Holden Street Theatres please come along.
