We’re celebrating by transforming the venue to support Western Australian artists for the next 30 years. We’re aiming to raise $50,000. Every $1 you donate will be matched by Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 scheme to become $2. So, we will raise $100,000.
With this, we’ll create a third black-box performance space to support more artists and a wider range of performance.
And we’ll renovate the Bar for the first time in 15 years so The Blue Room Theatre grows its audiences along with the renewal of the Perth Cultural Centre.
“There is nowhere quite like The Blue Room Theatre and I sing its praises wherever I go.”

Renew The Blue Room Theatre’s support of new generations of Western Australian theatre artists
A third black-box performance space will give The Blue Room Theatre programming flexibility to encourage more of both access and excellence at the heart of Western Australian theatre.
We’ll use increased performance space capacity to broaden our artistic pool and programming.
In this way, The Blue Room Theatre will launch the careers of great Western Australian artists, or begin the life of great Western Australian work, just as we have for the last 30 years.
Transform The Blue Room Theatre to secure its vital place in a higher profile Perth Cultural Centre
We will refurbish The Blue Room Theatre Bar so the venue remains a vibrant, attractive destination and develops audiences from increased activation of the Perth Cultural Centre after the opening of the Western Australian Museum.
The renovation supports plans to deliver more support to artists and sustain the organisation the organisation over time.
“First you get the money, then you get the power. But before either of those, you get The Blue Room Theatre season. At least that’s how it was for me.”
