Changeling Companions and Benefactors help us thrive and continue to produce high quality theatre for audiences across Kent

Ever since the time of Elizabeth I, theatre companies have enjoyed the support of patrons.

By becoming a Changeling Companion or sponsoring an actor, you will help our unique company continue to produce great shows.

We are one of only a small handful of Kentish theatre companies today. We bring high-quality theatre to you, in stunning sites and venues. We also create opportunities for young people to take up a career in theatre and television via our catapult scheme.

This year we have a very exciting opportunity for all of our Changelings. We are often asked by our audiences how they can support us further in our quest to bring open-air theatre to the South East. You now can! Do you or someone you know like what we do? Become a Companion or a sponsor a costume.  We also can talk about PRIVATE performances for that special occasion. OR you could sponsor a performance at Boughton Monchelsea Place for your favourite charity!

Sponsor a costume

All our costumes are hand made from scratch by our wonderful designers – for just £500 you could sponsor a named characters costume and have your name next theirs in the programme and a picture with the costume at one of the shows.

Sponsor a Character

Choose one of the characters from our show and you get to SPONSOR AN ACTOR for just £1000.  This will cover the actor’s accomodation for the tour and give you the pleasure of knowing you have been a big part of the show.  We will also put your name next to the actor in the biogs and a chance to meet with them at your performance.

Host a Changeling

Do you live in the Maidstone/Medway area and have a spare room?  Why not host a Changeling actor for the tour?  They are fully housetrained and won’t be around in the evenings plus they will give you a little extra cash.  You will be invited to our VIP opening night too!
