Take a Seat

in the new Waikato Regional Theatre!

The Waikato Regional Theatre will be an impressive world-class performance venue. Its 1300-seat auditorium will feature crystal-clear acoustics, up-close sightlines and a range of stage and viewing configurations, enabling it to showcase any and every kind of live performance.

Imagine a new multi-purpose performing arts centre that will transform the Hamilton CBD, catalyse local creative industries and drive the Waikato’s cultural life and identity for decades to come.

The new Theatre is being funded by a combination of local and central government, community trusts, business sponsorship and donations from members of your community who want to see it happen.

That’s where you come in.

A donation of $1,500 means you or your family’s name, or the title of your business or group, will be displayed on a seat/s in the auditorium.

Waikato people are naming seats for a variety of reasons - read 'Take a Seat' stories.

If you are wanting to 'Give a Seat' to a family member, friend or colleague, you can receive a pop-up gift card to present to them - just tell us it is a gift via the comment field when donating via the forms below, or via email.

(Please note – sponsoring Theatre seat/s does NOT guarantee automatic bookings of the seats for shows, the naming is not a long-term ‘season ticket’. Nor will you be able to choose which seat/s you name, as they will be named alphabetically.)
