The Isaac Theatre Royal is an independent theatre, managed by a charitable foundation on behalf of the people of Canterbury. As a charitable foundation, the Isaac Theatre Royal relies on the events we host and the kind donations we receive to continue to keep our doors open, hearts filled, and audiences engaged.

Theatres and their events are important to the liveability of their cities and the quality of life of their communities. The Isaac Theatre Royal supports community resilience through innovation, imagination and making events happen. We have reimagined venue spaces, created events and developed opportunities for artists and arts practitioners.

The Isaac Theatre Royal is developing opportunities to connect, tell our stories, challenge what is possible and provide opportunities in education, performance, reflection, joy and wonderment. We are transitioning from simply a ‘theatre for hire’ to a leader in the arts and live events – developing, facilitating and curating important creative content and events.

At 110,000 visitors per year. The Isaac Theatre Royal creates over 5,000 jobs and injects over $7 million into the local economy per year.

Supporting community resilience requires on-going support, sponsorship and funding.

There are a number of ways companies, organisations and individuals can support the Isaac Theatre Royal.

Your sponsorship helps the Isaac Theatre Royal continue to  create unforgettable experiences that  helps community resilience.

Through the generosity and partnership of our sponsors, the Isaac Theatre Royal is able to continue to host important theatrical productions.

Funding and sponsorship supports local arts organisations by enabling the Isaac Theatre Royal to reduce hiring costs for community organisations, which provides greater access to arts opportunities to our community..
