Declare your love of theatre, honour someone close to you or celebrate a milestone in a special and lasting way with a unique and enduring gift.

Naming a seat in the Sumner at MTC’s Southbank Theatre is a great way to support world-class theatre and the artists who inspire you. Your tax-deductible donation of $2,000 to dedicate a seat helps to bring the transformative power of live storytelling to the Melbourne and wider Victorian community.

In consideration of your generosity, a personalised plaque with your inscription will be affixed to one of The Sumner seats that you select.* You will also receive a commemorative certificate and be invited to a private plaque viewing once installed. Acknowledgments may have two lines of up to 25 characters (including spaces).

Take your seat and reserve your place in MTC’s history. You’ll be in great company.

*Subject to availability. Seats will be named in The Sumner for a minimum of 25 years.
