When you join the Friends of the Regent Theatre, you’ll get all kinds of perks and benefits, from invitations to exclusive events, concession ticket prices and special offers from some of our amazing local businesses – what’s not to love?!

You will no longer pay booking fees for Regent Theatre events and you’ll be entered into draws for tickets as well as getting regular updates about what’s on and what’s coming up. Click the box below to see the special offers, and to access them, just present your Friends of the Regent membership card in store or when you book. (They will change from time to time – what’s listed is what’s on offer for you now and supersedes any previous promotions.)

For those of you who would like to play a more hands on role with the Theatre, it is overseen by a Board which is elected each year and all members are eligible both to stand for election and to vote.  Annual membership is only NZD$50 per person.

Benefits are individual and not transferable.

Becoming a volunteer

If you are fit, cheerful, over 16 years of age, and looking to widen your world view, volunteering at the Regent Theatre could be an avenue to investigate. We are always on the lookout for people who enjoy the company of people from all walks of life to fill a variety of roles.

There are usually about 160 people on the volunteer schedule, all of whom enjoy being part of the behind the scenes life of the theatre and chatting to patrons.

Front of house volunteers usher patrons to seats, offer directions to restrooms or transport services and general information, work in the theatre’s several bars and look after event merchandise sales.

There are also volunteers who primarily swing into action before and during the Theatre’s annual 24-Hour Book Sale, helping to sort and then sell the donated items.
