Grey Lynn based charitable arts organisation, The Covert Theatre, has received a $12,500 grant from the Mazda Foundation.
Powered by the Yes And Trust, the Covert Theatre will be using the grant to purchase retractable, tiered seating for its own theatre it is building to run its Improv School and comedy shows. The organisation offers workshop courses and a community for improv actors, comedians, writers, directors and producers at New Zealand’s only improvised comedy theatre.
Through these courses it aims to teach life skills such as confidence, collaboration, creativity, resilience and mindfulness to Auckland’s youth and community. They are looking forward to officially opening on 25 June and will have a positive impact, bringing performance and entertainment to Ponsonby!
