LIGHTS UP: ONLINE FUNDRAISING AUCTION
Thu 1 Oct – Thu 15 Oct
It’s ‘Lights Up’ on Sydney Theatre Company’s first ever online fundraising auction.
This is your chance to brighten up your 2020 by taking a private music class with Ben Folds, diving into STC’s incredible costume collection with stage and screen star Mia Wasikowska, securing your own insightful rehearsal room sketches by Archibald winning artists Nicholas Harding, acquiring a gorgeous strand of Paspaley Pearls to wear when you’re back in the theatre, or booking a luxury local get-away… and much much more.
STC is fortunate to have an incredible community of hundreds of thousands of audience members. With our theatre’s dark and the doors closed to this community, STC has lost over $18 million in ticket sales in just the last 6 months.
Lights Up is a city’s response to STC in crisis. An inspired group of volunteers, supporters and artists have banded together to light up our future – gathering over 60 unique and exciting prizes.
2021 will be Sydney Theatre Company’s first season back in our newly refurbished home base, The Wharf. After such a devastating year, and as one of the largest employers of theatre makers in the country, this could mean more shows, more artist employment, more education programs, more new Australian works, more creative opportunities and more amazing audience experiences that will help rebuild our beloved community.
It is our theatre makers and all the years of creativity, expertise, and potential they possess that is most vulnerable right now. Join us as we work to preserve this extraordinary pool of Australian talent, and in whatever way possible, allow them to continue to create the enriching cultural life we all share.
From October 1, you can help by placing a bid on one of the generously donated prizes that will allow every dollar raised to change what is possible for STC.
