Our 20 Champions Giving Circle provides critical support to create new puppet performances for audiences across generations.

Spare Parts Puppet Theatre’s vision is to be an international centre for excellence in puppetry. For more than 40 years we have created adventurous and enriching theatre, bringing joy and telling stories that connect and inspire audiences across generations. 

In the next four years (2023 to 2026) we have set ourselves an ambitious target of creating nine new puppet theatre works, employing over 60 Western Australian artists to bring stories to life that will inspire and enrich our community.

By joining our 20 Champions Giving Circle your donation will provide critical support for our artists to create new puppetry performances that will ignite imaginations.

Our 20 Champions donors make an annual tax-deducible gift from $1,000 to directly support the creation and staging of new puppetry performances.  Your gift will enable us to employ Western Australian artists and leverage additional funding. Importantly, the gift you make today will have an impact for years to come. Each new show becomes part of our repertoire and staged and toured for several years.

As a 20 Champion donor, you’ll be invited to events that take you behind the scenes to meet some of Western Australia’s leading theatre artists as they share insights into the making of new puppet theatre. We’ll send six monthly reports to celebrate the impact of your gift and proudly acknowledge your support in our promotional material for twelve months.

All donations made between 27 October 2023 and 31 May 2024 will be matched dollar for dollar by Creative Australia! Money raised will help us create a new music theatre puppet performance ‘Hometown’, inspired by a story from Shaun Tan.
