With a 20-year history in partnership, it’s fantastic to have MediaWorks’ The Breeze Canterbury align with The Girl on the Train.

We chatted with MediaWorks Customer Experience Manager, Hannah Aualiitia, about why this partnership is a ticket to success.

Why does a partnership with The Court Theatre work for MediaWorks?
MediaWorks and our leading supporting brands The Breeze and More FM feel privileged to be long standing partners of The Court Theatre, our relationship spans over 20 years. We love sharing The Court Theatre’s shows with our audiences and customers alike, they are absolutely world class and yet proudly locally made – that’s something we strive for in our business too.

What values do you think MediaWorks shares with The Court Theatre?
We share the common values of bringing audiences together through storytelling, community togetherness and live, local entertainment.

What are you most looking forward to about seeing this show come to life before an audience?
We’re excited to share The Girl on the Train with our customers and listeners as The Court Theatre reopens its doors and welcomes patrons back after a challenging start to the year. This moody, crime-thriller, promises to have us all on the edge of our seats and will inspire conversations long after we’ve left the theatre.

Anything you would say to other businesses thinking of supporting The Court?
MediaWorks Canterbury has a rich history of supporting The Court Theatre our partnership has multiple layers of positive impact for our customers, audiences and staff. We truly believe they are the best local theatre company in New Zealand and would encourage any business passionate about the arts to get involved!

Is there something interesting about MediaWorks that you would like people to know, that they probably aren’t aware of?
Most people when they think ‘MediaWorks’ will think of our strong radio brands – The Breeze, More FM, The Rock, The Edge, Magic, Today FM, Mai FM and The Sound; but our media offering extends far further into out of home, digital, search & social, promotions and events. We love sharing our customers' brand stories and helping their businesses grow. Get in touch with us at our local offices in Addington, just a stone's throw from The Court Theatre!
