This evening at Government House Wellington, Dame Cindy hosted a reception celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Theatre Artists' Charitable Trust. TACT provides financial support to creative artists during the initial stages of play production and rehearsal at Circa Theatre – from actors and directors; to designers, technicians, stage managers, and publicists. Around 120 artists each year receive these invaluable grants. You can find out the various ways you can support Wellington's world-class Circa Theatre here.
