Ballarat National Theatre


fundraising imageHere's how it works:

BNT presents several productions a year at the Courthouse Theatre (SMB campus of Federation University Ballarat). Each production plays over a two week period and offers up to two private performances for fund-raising purposes. The venue seats up to 120 people.

You would:

  1. Purchase the performance for a flat fee of $450 (which covers rights and royalties, rental, production costs etc)
  2. Set its own ticket prices
  3. Advertise, produce and sell tickets in whatever manner they choose

By packaging the ticket price with some additional add-ons it is possible to exceed the flat fee cost of $450 in no time and by a considerable amount (ie, the sale of just 18 tickets at $25 would cover the BNT fee).

Examples of add-ons to the show:

  • Pre-show drinks (supplied by you)
  • Post-show drinks and meet the cast
  • Raffles

Please feel free to discuss a tailor-made evening at the theatre with Robyn on ph 0409 409 572 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

On occasion, two organisations have chosen to share a performance on a 50/50 basis feeling that they can more easily sell tickets in partnership.
