Heartfelt thanks to our COVID-19 cancellation donors

We have seen unprecedent levels of generosity since the first wave of cancellations in March 2020. Many ticketholders showed their support for ATC by donating the value of their tickets. We are incredibly lucky and thankful for the continued kindness received from our audiences.


A gift to Auckland Theatre Company is a gift that makes a difference and lives on in memory. If you are considering making a bequest, we encourage you to discuss this with us to ensure your gift can be used in the way you intend. Please contact [email protected].
