There are only 14 sleeps until Christmas. Trees are being decorated. Houses are being illuminated in coloured lights. Menus are being planned. Stores are being filled. As the silly season begins, we’ve put together a list of gift ideas for the theatre lover in your life.
For the casual theatre-goer
The first three shows of Season 2015 are now on sale, including a West End hit comedy (Jumpy), an Australian musical love story (What Rhymes with Cars and Girls) and a modern theatrical classic (Endgame). Pair a ticket with a gift to extend their experience: perhaps a season of Kath & Kim on DVD before they see Jane Turner in Jumpy; Tim Rogers’ iconic album to get them in the mood for What Rhymes with Cars and Girls; or a dustbin for fans of Samuel Beckett’s Endgame.
For the committed theatre-goer
Curate a year of theatre for a more committed theatre lover with a season package. Simply select three or more plays from the 11 in Season 2015 for a gift that keeps on giving. Plus, a package allows them to access great seats before tickets go on sale to the general public, as well as heaps of exclusive benefits including discounted tickets, the ability to exchange tickets and regular updates with subscriber eNewsletters and the quarterly Scenes magazine.
For the theatre-goer with everything
What do you do if the theatre lover in your life has already selected their shows for 2015? MTC has introduced a new membership program in 2015 which is perfect for the regular theatre-goer. With a range of privileges throughout the season, access to the all new, exclusive Members Lounge, special offers and discounts at Southbank Theatre bars, Script Bar & Bistro and within the Southgate restaurant and shopping precinct, it’s the perfect way to upgrade their theatre experience.
For the theatre-goer that’s hard to buy for
There’s always that one person who is terribly difficult to buy for. They may have too many diverse interests for you to pick the right gift, or you’re not exactly sure what they like. Sometimes they are guilty of purchasing everything for themselves leaving them with a very small wishlist. Here’s where a gift voucher can come in handy – they are available in any denomination and can either be posted in a luxurious gift wallet or, for those last minute gifts, can be conveniently emailed to you or your recipient.
Plus, if you buy a gift voucher between X and Y, you will instantly go into the draw to win a $500 Kozminsky voucher!
And remember, it’s the thought that counts!
