From the Circa Council

Welcome Theatre lovers! 2016 was a special year for us as we celebrated 40 years of New Zealand Theatre. A truly memorable and historic occasion and we feel honoured to have been able to share and celebrate it with all of our loyal funders, sponsors, supporters and patrons.

Thank you to you all.


We would like to see 2017 as a continuation of the celebrations we began last year, especially as we reach another milestone with the 30th Anniversary of Theatre Artists Charitable Trust (TACT).

Since 1987 TACT has helped to support the artists during the rehearsal process – vital to the work you see at Circa Theatre each year.

Thank you for supporting Circa Theatre and we look forward to seeing you here as we continue to celebrate, both the returning
and the new, in 2017. – The Circa Council
