THE COURT DEPENDS ON US and we need you
We are all passionate about ensuring live theatre thrives. Each year we give The Court tens of thousands of dollars in funding, most of which is usually to sponsor one mainstage show. This funding comes from our membership fees, fundraisers and donations. Join us and become a Friend and play a part of the continuation of this extraordinary live theatre company.
Our Friends volunteers are the ushers who show you to your seats, saving The Court about $200,000 each year in ushering costs. Our volunteers also operate the Coffee Bar and after every mainstage opening night show we provide free bubbles.
We are proud of the support we give The Court, ensuring our city and its visitors can all continue to enjoy wonderful, enthralling live theatre.
