Our Supporters


The Aotea Centre, Auckland

The support and sponsorship provided by Auckland Live enables us to perform at the Aotea Centre. Without their recognition of the importance of bringing theatre to young people we wouldn't be able to operate. They’re a crucial supporter, and we're so grateful for everything they do for us.


Digital screens in use as background for an NYT show

Monstavision light up our stage with brilliant LED screens - enabling us to create an amazing set without taking up the space needed for our performers to do their thing. Their support is unparalleled, and has changed the way we think about our productions. If you need large screens for any project, please do get in touch with Monstavision - and tell them we sent you!

The Potter Masonic Trust administers the legacy left by Frederick Seymour Potter (1847-1941). The Trust funds projects in the northern half of the North Island generally relating to children and youth. The focus is on furthering education, health and wellbeing and providing experiences for children and youth in the community.
