Personal message

Lunchbox Theatre is dedicated to the power of interactive theatrical events that educate, empower, enlighten and entertain. Founded in 2007 by Stuart Palmer, Lunchbox Theatre continues to aim to make a difference in the lives of young people from rural and disadvantaged communities. 

As an organization Lunchbox Theatre boasts a board of experts in theatre, education, environment and youth training. Our focus is three-tiered approach: 

1. After-School Workshops: Recognising the pivotal role of youth shaping the future, Lunchbox Theatre places a strong emphasis on reaching school-based learners through our After Schools Activity Program (ASAP). This offers an interactive style of theatre that incorporates music, dance and storytelling, providing opportunities for learners to present their skills through annual showcases.

2. Educational Theatre Shows: We bring professional educational theatre shows to schools and underpriviledged communities, raising awareness of environmental and social issues, increasing exposure to the arts, fostering cultural awareness, and providing employment for actors. To inspire relevance and connection with diverse communities a multilingual approach is incorporated with stories and characters specific to each community. 

3. Skills Development: We train local youth, actors and facilitators to enhance their skills, offering job security in education and the arts. These individuals are employed by Lunchbox Theatre to perform in our shows and leader learning-centered workshops.

Support Lunchbox Theatre today and help fuel our mission of transforming lives through the magic of theatre. Together we can empower young actors, inspire communities and build a brighter future for all.
