The Dame Malvina Major Foundation Christchurch committee is hosting a fundraiser on Sunday, September 6th at 2:00pm for The Isaac Theatre Royal.
A talented line-up of artists, many of whom are recipients of funding from the Foundation & until recently either studying or enjoying successful careers internationally are now back in Christchurch awaiting the end of lockdown. The Isaac Theatre Royal has been particularly adversely affected by the Covid-19 virus. It is important that we support this iconic theatrical venue, which is the spiritual heart of Canterbury’s Art Scene. It is also important the DMMF support young performing artists who are struggling with an unknown future despite years of dedication to their art form. Contracts have been cancelled, studies abroad disrupted, visa’s stalled, plus travel restrictions. Working together we are providing a platform & wonderful variety concert for audiences to share ‘Catch the Rising Stars’ a showcase of exceptional talent.
