Our Friends play a starring role in the work of the theatre, both by supporting new productions and our talented apprentice dancers and actors, as well as our community learning programme. We want everyone to enjoy the benefits of drama and dance, and support from our Friends also helps us expand our offering to low-income groups, school children and young people who may have had no previous experience in the arts.
If you would like to support our work, find out first about new productions, and join other Friends in unique behind-the-scenes events, don’t delay, sign up today!
As a Friend you’ll get:
• Priority booking – find out first about our new season and book most productions before anyone else for you and a guest.
• Access to great discounts when you book more than one show in advance as part of our Rep Discovery Deal.
• 10% discount on food in our Encore restaurant at lunch and dinner.
• Invitations to special behind-the-scenes events in drama and dance, including backstage tours, ‘Meet the Creatives’ sessions, and post-show talks.
• A 2-for-1 ticket offer for select productions for midweek performances.
Friends’ memberships are just £3/month when you sign up for Direct Debit online -- or you can download our form here.
Note: We will automatically ask you for Gift Aid so that we can claim an extra 25p on top of every £1 you donate – if you are not presently a taxpayer, or don’t meet the relevant threshold, please do not tick this box. Otherwise, please do consider adding Gift Aid to make your (tax-effective) donation go that much further!
