Since 2003, all profits from the Stage Artz Annual Musical Production have been donated to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The decision to raise money to help the kids at Westmead has been taken on board not only by audiences and supporters of Stage Artz, but also by the performers. All of the cast members, from 4yrs to adult, have banded together each year to create a sensational show and raise a profit. As well as attending regular rehearsals, cast members also help organise fundraising activities to help cover initial production costs, leaving a large portion of ticket sales for hospital donation.
Over the past 16 years, Stage Artz Charity Musicals have collectively raised $263,000 for the children’s hospital. In 2010, Stage Artz was awarded Major Donor Status at The Children’s Hospital Westmead and, at the end of 2015, the hospital acknowledged Stage Artz as a Lifetime Partner. In 2018, having reached the $250,000 donation milestone, Stage Artz became an official Hospital Benefactor.
For adults, the opportunity to perform with, for and in aid of children is exciting and rewarding. For young students, being on stage with experienced adult performers while raising money to help other kids is an experience they will never forget.
