Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.


Wish Street

Building a neighbourhood where brave conversations can happen.

A collaboration between Satellite Foundation and Polyglot Theatre

Wish Street celebrates the unique and powerful intersection of theatre-making and family mental health awareness. With a focus on community, mental wellbeing and play, this in-schools residency program asks young people to build a large-scale world using craft and costume. Here, anything is possible, and everything can be done together.

Wish Street invites young people to think about the things that are important to them and place them in a shared space. With a magical post-box at the centre of the story, real life wishes, both good and bad, are sent off – with time to then let serious creativity fly. Want to run a lolly factory? Be a paper florist? Look after animals? Make a place that helps people share their voices, thoughts or ideas?

Facilitators will help create a brilliant and safe world for and with young people that is built directly from their imaginations and their real-life experiences, encouraging brave conversations, connection and extreme creativity!

To maximise our impact and exchange with school communities, a week-long minimum booking requirement is now in place. Please contact us if you wish to discuss this.
