Background and Mission
Our mission is to offer wide-ranging arts experiences in well-managed venues.
The Perth Theatre Trust is a statutory authority established and constituted under the Perth Theatre Trust Act 1979, to manage and operate theatres vested in or leased to it.
The venues currently managed by the Trust are:
- His Majesty’s Theatre
- Subiaco Arts Centre
- State Theatre Centre of Western Australia
- Albany Entertainment Centre.
The Trust’s venues are used by local, national and international performing arts companies, performers and artists, both professional and amateur. School and children’s performances and activities are also presented at these venues.
Funded arts organisations presenting regular seasons in Trust venues include the Barking Gecko Theatre Company, Black Swan State Theatre Company, Perth Theatre Company, Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company, West Australian Ballet and West Australian Opera, as well as the Perth International Arts Festival.
The Trust supports the presentation or co-production of some events in its theatres.
The Trust operates in the Culture and Arts Portfolio. The Department of Culture and the Arts provides corporate support to the Trust, including human resources, financial and information system support.
