We wouldn’t be who we are today without the generous support of our Business Club and Production Sponsors, our Friends, Champions, Patrons and Benefactors and Production Fund Donors, and the support of several charitable trusts.

    We also remain indebted to our Fans For Life whose support was instrumental in the early years of the theatre.

    Thank you.


    Thank you to our core funders whose logos you can see at the bottom of each page of our website.
