One Seat, Endless Inspiration

Do you remember the first time you experienced the joy of theatre?

From the windswept shores of The Tempest, to the ‘room where it happens’ in Hamilton, theatre has the ability to delight, challenge, move and enthral.

Every seat in our theatre has the potential to inspire: the young person from Peckham experiencing live performance for the first time; the performer on stage on the cusp of stardom; the technician honing their craft, building worlds of our imaginations.

We welcome over 5,000 people to Mountview every year to act, dance, sing and experience live theatre. Alongside our student community, hundreds of young people engage their creativity each week at Generation N*xt, whilst subsidised tickets for local people ensure the 25 professional-standard productions we present annually are accessible to all.

Support a seat today, with a gift of £500 (or £125 per annum for four years), and you will help us inspire all those who set foot in our theatres.

In return we’ll keep you up to date with the impact of your gift, with stories of the individuals you’ve supported and the productions you’ve made possible.

You might also like to add your own words of inspiration, with the option for a dedication on a seat in The Mack, our main auditorium. Perhaps this is your favourite quote from a play, a message of encouragement for a recent graduate, or a dedication to the person who inspired your love of theatre.

Plaques will be in place for four years and the Development team will be in touch on receipt of your gift to confirm your dedication*.

“Mountview is a very special place. At generation n*xt there’s loads of things happening and I get to step up my skills every week. Taking part can change your life. Now I can do anything.” − Joshua, age 9, Generation N*xt – Acting

“I was inspired to get into theatre as I wanted the next generation of kids on school trips to see more faces like mine, to know that being on stage was possible. I hope that future artists will see the possibilities of what they can be a part of. There are no limits to what their imaginations can create.”
