Holden Street Theatres present
Supported by City of Charles Sturt


Join HST for a very special Winter Program, An Evening With...

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, many industries, including the Arts, have taken a hard hit, but thanks to the incredible commitment and efforts by South Australians our state is slowly opening back up and we are able to start live performances again!

Limited to a strict number of patrons with social distancing, hygiene and density requirements being adhered to at all times, HST is launching a winter program to kick start the Arts Industry and welcome you back to the theatre. It is the first live performance program in SA since the crisis began and we cannot wait to share a night out at the theatre with you again!

From 20th June to 25th July, HST will host an array of actors, musicians and poets including Peter Goers & Martha Lott, Mim Sarre, Mel McCaig, Draw Your (S)Words Poetry and our closing night performance coming from Vonda Last!

We would also like to thank our council, the City of Charles Sturt, for their generous support in bringing this amazing program to you! The Arts Industry is an integral part of South Australian life and one of the things that makes Adelaide such a wonderful place to live. Thank you for your support and help in kick starting the industry after the crisis.

Made possible by City of Charles Sturt!

An Evening With... Programme

An Evening With... Draw Your (S)Words Poetry

Friday 24th July, 7:30pm

Draw Your S(W)ords Poetry is a monthly event to allow poets of Kaurna Land/Adelaide to express and inspire others with the beauty of spoken word in a safe space. DYS believe sharing poetry is vulnerable, it takes bravery and that's what makes the DYS community so special, it’s the support that never fails to show up time after time.

HST are thrilled to have DYS at Holden Street for this special event!
