Congratulations to The Loons Theatre Company — 05.11.15

The Loons have a new theatre, and now, thanks to you, they have new seats too!

We’d like to say a HUGE congratulations from the Arts Foundation and Boosted, to our friends at The Loons Theatre Company. The Loons have been Begging For It, with a Boosted campaign to raise $70,000 for retractable seating for their new performing arts centre in Lyttelton. Yesterday, they exceeded this target thanks to more than 300 incredible Boosters.

In total the Loons Theatre Trust must raise $392,000 to fit out their new theatre. The retractable seating costs $150,000 and has been funded predominantly by their Boosted campaign and Creative New Zealand pledged $50,000 towards the seats if the Loons could raise the balance.

There is still some way to go to raise the additional funds for the fit out, and it’s not too late to jump on board. The campaign on Boosted will remain open for donations until midnight tonight. You know what to do!​

DONATE NOW (by midnight tonight, Thursday 5 November).
