Circa has been a champion of New Zealand Theatre for 40 Years. We receive the major part of our funding from Creative New Zealand. While this allows us to produce theatre of a high standard, we rely on a number of different kinds of support in order to encourage and develop theatre makers so that they can continue to produce work of the highest standard.
Circa’s Major Sponsors provide cash and in-kind support. Their invaluable contribution enables our actors, directors, designers, technicians, stage managers and publicists to work viably while undertaking a production at Circa.
We are very thankful for the Show Sponsors who contribute to specific productions, to provide additional care when it is needed. Most of our Show Sponsors are individuals or families, whose generous philanthropy is targeted to help where it can best be used.
Last but very definitely not least, we have been incredibly lucky to have had the Circa Friends as dedicated supporters since the theatre opened in 1976. This dedicated group of theatre lovers represents our most dedicated audience. If you are a regular attendee at Circa Theatre, we highly encourage you to join. The membership fee is $60, but the benefits (including a discounted ticket price, regular newsletter, and special Friend’s events) are large.
We are very appreciative of all of our supporters – thank you for being a part of Circa Theatre.
