The Blue Room Theatre proudly offers a professional and supportive auspice service for independent artists needing grants administered.  The Blue Room Theatre Producer will offer advice through the grant application process and if the application is successful, will be available to guide you through the proper financial processes from contracting to acquittal.


The Blue Room Theatre will provide the auspice project with the following financial and project management services:

– Provide payroll service including: payment of all fees, wages and on costs (including workers’ compensation {2%}, superannuation {9.5%} and PAYG)

– Management of employment contracts

– Offer cash flow and budget control including payment of GST and other liabilities

– Monitoring of petty cash and production expenses

– Within thirty days of completion of the Project, we will provide a project reconciliation report detailing all income and expenses

– Provide financial and budget advice as required

– Provide public liability insurance to the production and all of its artists (where possible)

– We charge 7% of total project income which is recommended to be factored into the grant application budget where possible.



If you are interested in having a project auspiced or would like to hear more about the service, contact Producer Jenna Mathie: email or call (08)9227 7005. Meetings should take place one month before the application due date, but at a minimum must take place two weeks prior to the application due date.
