Stumped for gift ideas? This theatre subscription is a culture vulture’s dream

Elevated heart rates and a stressed demeanour need not prevail over your present hunt this Christmas, with Auckland Theatre Company offering what is arguably the simplest and most original solution to gifting woes. The ATC Season Pass allows subscribers to enjoy a year of varied and engaging theatre from the country’s top practitioners, a curated experience that offers first-choice of play and access to premium seats.

The perfect present for theatre enthusiasts or just those who are culturally inclined, this pass will see the gifter select between four and six productions spanning the 2018 season. Should the pass-holder be unable to make any of the selected performances, the flexibility of the season ticket allows for time-swapping if necessary. Set to be the gift that just keeps on giving throughout the year, it also provides crucial support for the arts in Auckland and lends the perfect excuse for an evening out (see Denizen’s definitive guide to pre-theatre dining).

A full year subscription to Auckland Theatre Company valued at $365. For more information click here
