Journey through the eyes of refugee children
The Treehouse Theatre program provides a platform for young refugees to share their life stories. Through group story telling in a live public theatre performance, young refugees share their personal stories with friends, family and the wider community.
What People Say
“It opened my eyes to the experience of refugees. I found the truth.”
Student audience member
“Treehouse Theatre is how Australia can witness the experiences of the young refugees among us. Australia gives them a new life, and they give back so much in return.”
Peter Hartcher, Journalist
“I don’t have nightmares anymore. I found friends and family. Thank you Treehouse Theatre.”
We are passionate about giving “The Refugee Experience” a genuine and empathic face.
The resilient young refugees with whom we work, offer us their life stories with open-hearted grace, and thus hand us the privilege and the responsibility of finding a way to give these stories voice and audience. We long for all Australians to hear these young people. We yearn for all Australians to feel these stories. We crave other young people of all backgrounds to connect these vibrant faces with the word “refugee” and learn we are all not so different.
How You Can Help
We wouldn’t be here today if not for the support of our generous donors, audiences and volunteers.
Daytime performances for schools, evening performances for families of the cast. The public are welcome at all performances.
You can get involved today by becoming a Volunteer. Sign up and you will be joining a group of change-makers, a network strong enough to impact positive change in the lives of young refugees.
Donations help fund our program. We are primarily a volunteer organisation but the costs for theatres, technicians, transport and catering all add up quickly. Any support you can give is appreciated. Donations more than $2 are tax deductible.
