May Sneak Peeks

It’s that fiscal time of year, when we all anticipate and speculate about the winners and losers of government beneficence.At AMPAG we know the partnership between government and the major performing arts companies is strong and resilient—and we expect that to be affirmed when the Federal Budget is handed down on Tuesday 13 May.

But in the light of budgetary deficits and the report from the Commission of Audit due to be released this week, Australians face tougher times ahead.

This makes the major companies’ success in securing private sector support all the more important. Again this year, AMPAG is compiling its report into corporate sponsorship and philanthropy, to be released in June. Our companies also increasingly rely on lifting box office and seeking out new audiences.

Those new audiences can be found not just through promoting mainstage performance, but also through engaging with school children, running community events and nurturing relationships in the international space. We'll update on these activities and more in our next e-news out mid -May.

Today we're shining a light on a selection of Opening Nights taking place across the country in May–for those thinking further ahead you can view the whole year on the AMPAG website- there is much to enjoy!
