Auckland Theatre Company: Christchurch Earthquake Response
25 Feb 2011
Auckland Theatre Company will donate the proceeds from a series of performances and other events to organisations in Christchurch over the coming months. The first dedicated fundraising performance will be this Sunday's (27 Feb at 4pm) performance of WELL HUNG at the Maidment Theatre.
All the ticket proceeds of this performance will be donated to our sister organisation in Christchurch, The Court Theatre.
The Arts Centre (which houses The Court and other arts organisations) has been extensively damaged and the theatre will be closed for a period.
Auckland Theatre Company has very close ties with the Court - a number of staff here have been on staff there in the past and a lot of actors, designers and directors have worked on productions there in the past.
Auckland Theatre Company want to make sure the theatre is full for this performance to maximize the donation it can give to the Court - tickets can be booked by phone 09 308 2383 or online www.atc.co.nz
Auckland Theatre Company will also be collecting money for the New Zealand Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal at all performances so you can donate to the Red Cross on any night you attend.
The next performance we will be using to raise funds will be during the season of POOR BOY. The recipient organisation will be announced closer to the show.
