Auckland’s leading theatre for children

Our Mission

Creating top-quality New Zealand Theatre accessible to all children and young people and inspire in them a love of the performing arts both as audience and active members

Offering Youth Theatre Scholarships

Providing free tickets to Accessible Performances to children from BLENNZ, (Blind and Low Vision Education Network of NZ), Kelston Deaf Education Centre, Make-A-Wish NZ and low decile schools

Gift a Seat is a way that you can help  – allowing a child to smile for a while, and let them experience the joys of live theatre.

We’re inviting individuals and companies the unique opportunity to sponsor children from Make-A-Wish New Zealand, Kelston Deaf Education Centre, BLENNZ (Blind and Low Vision Education Network of NZ) and low decile schools with free seats to our theatre shows along with scholarships for children to enjoy a term’s worth of our Youth Theatre classes. Having an opportunity to experience live theatre is a life enriching experience some children may never have. With your help we can make this possible.

Together we can continue to create the magic and wonder of professional children’s theatre

Our benefactors give because they have a love of the performing arts and realise the value of theatre in the lives of our children. They share the vision of our shows encouraging literacy, and support us in making our productions accessible to over 25,000 children and their families each year.

Funding accounts for 40% of our annual operating budget, however we need to raise a further $500,000 to make the operation of the trust viable. We invite you to make a donation – so we can continue to create and produce top quality theatre for children.

We believe that all children should have the opportunity to have access to live theatre.

 

Theatre is not just entertainment but plays a vital part for children’s development; socially, educationally and building confidence – often sparking ideas for their own performances and getting involved in the arts themselves.

Gift a Seat is a way that you can help  – allowing a children to smile for a while, and let them experience the joys of live theatre.

For years we have been offering free tickets to low decile schools, which has been possible through funders. Through our own outreach programme we also offer tickets to our shows to children and their families from various charities.

Tim Bray Productions present four shows a year, with a strong focus on New Zealand literature. Plus our Youth Theatre gives children an opportunity to actively participate in the arts, learn drama techniques and gain confidence that will benefit them on and off the stage.

As Auckland’s leading theatre for children, Tim Bray Productions is also a registered charity and we’re offering individuals and companies the opportunity to sponsor children from Make-A-Wish New Zealand, Kelston Deaf Education Centre, BLENNZ (Blind and Low Vision Education Network of NZ), low decile schools with free seats to our theatre shows and scholarships for children to enjoy a term’s worth of Youth Theatre classes. Having an opportunity to experience live theatre is a life enriching experience some children may never have. With your help we can make this possible.
