Commission earned by a group of Launceston real agents will be used to help aspiring actors, singers and dancers with disability showcase their potential.
Agents at Harrison Humphreys handed over a $5000 cheque to St Giles’ Studio Space Theatre Company last week.
Harrison Humphreys staff member Jessica Bryant’s three-year-old son George has used StGiles to access occupational therapy support and staff member Jesse Denholm’s father has attended StGiles.

It was the staff members and their families’ positive experiences with StGiles which prompted Harrison Humphreys to make the donation, company director Tom Harrison said.
StGiles chief executive Andrew Billing said the Studio Space Theatre Company was funded entirely by donations.
“We dream big here at StGiles and donations like this work their magic,” he said.
The group hopes to soon tour Tasmania, Victoria and eventually head to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
