Earn free scripts
When logged in to your profile, every purchase you make at AustralianPlays.org will earn you points towards free scripts from the Australian Script Centre catalogue. $1 equals 1 point and when you’ve earned 100 points you’ll receive a credit to redeem your eligible script. See our T&Cs for full details.
Save on invoiced orders
If your school or business requires an invoice before processing payments, our checkout provides an option to do just that! In most cases this will incur an additional administration fee, but as a paid subscriber we’ll waive that cost for you. See our T&Cs for full details.
