General Information

Windmill strongly believes that capturing the imaginations of young people early in their development helps to establish a life-long love of the arts.

Book a Performance

To secure your preferred day and time we recommend you book early as the shows can sell out quickly.

We appreciate that when booking in advance you might not know the exact number of students, but a close as possible estimate will give us an indication of how many to reserve, and we’ll confirm exact numbers closer to the date. We can also hold the tax invoice until numbers are confirmed.

Education Resources

Detailed Study Guides linked to the Australian Curriculum, The Early Years Learning Framework and SACE are provided free to schools that book performances. These explore The Arts, linked learning areas, the General Capabilities and the Cross Curriculum Perspectives where applicable. The guides include information related to the creative team, pre and post-performance activity ideas, curriculum tasks and other learning areas.

“Every year Windmill provides exceptional shows for students – they are creative, daring productions that always use theatrical devices in a range of ways.” Michael Butler, Teacher, St Peter’s Girls School

Free Seats – Equity Program

Windmill’s Free Seats Equity Program offers 15% of tickets across the 2018 season free to disadvantaged schools in South Australia. Schools ranked 1 to 4 are selected in accordance with the DECD Categories of Disadvantaged. SES schools are offered the equivalent of one to two classes, depending on the capacity of the venue.
