Make a Donation
This year's Annual Appeal is a reflection of who we are, what we do, and why our donors support QSE. The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble is an artist-run theatre company. We consist of a Core Ensemble who not only perform in our shows, but also run the business side of QSE. An artist-run company is the very condition for the possibility of the following to flourish:
- Celebration of our diversity and gender parity since QSE's inception
- High calibre art created by QSE's unique ensemble approach and commitment to voice and text training
- Cultivation and staging of new and local Australian works, e.g. Bogga
- Commitment to our community through Shakespeare Beyond giving voice to the marginalized
Shakespeare Beyond represents QSE's community initiatives such as:
- The Shakespeare Prison Project
- Raising Voices: empowering women to be heard
- A Night at the Theatre initiative
- Relaxed Performances
- Youth Justice
- Scholarships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists
All this is possible quite simply because the artists have made it so. On stage and off. Though we're just a small ensemble from Brisbane, we have big dreams and would like you to join us in our campaign. We wish to be Australia's new centre of Shakespeare performance and training.
So please support an artist-run theatre company by donating to QSE by June 30.
Donors who give $100 + will be listed as a 'wallflower' on the QSE's Donors Wall.

A Night at the Theatre
In 2016, the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble started the A Night at the Theatre initiative in partnership with the Australian Red Cross, Communify, and Arafmi Ltd. A donation of $35 can give a main-stage ticket to a person who might not have otherwise been able to experience live Shakespeare.
