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

Celebrate your love of theatre, a milestone or someone close to you in a special and lasting way by naming a seat in The Sumner at Southbank Theatre.

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).

A unique and enduring gift, naming a seat is a great way to support world-class theatre and the artists who inspire you.

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