 A community that cares

Sumner - sleepy seaside suburb of Christchurch New Zealand - is home to the Sumner Theatre Group (STG). This energetic volunteer group of amateur thespians produces a variety cabaret show every year. Singers, dancers, prop-masters, lighting, stage crew and more; all give their time to produce a show that is always “wow - even better than last year's!”

  Matuku Takotako Location

STG is affiliated to the Sumner Community Centre Inc. Tickets to each show are sold as a fundraiser for local groups.
