What are the advantages of the Friend’s Circle of four levels?

We provide priority regarding ticket purchase for our members, therefore they can get tickets easily for popular performances like The Dead of the Káli Basin and God, home, family or The Caucasian chalk circle. In addition, they receive a 10% discount for tickets to our performances. They can also attend exclusive meet-and-greets with the creators of our popular performances..

Our supporters can also attend exclusive events, exclusive talks about the premiers, and can enjoy the services of the theater with the help of their personal contact people..
We offer even more programs for our maecenases, like the possibility to attend a rehearsal of one of the plays in progress, and inviting them to our guest performances abroad.

We aim to thank the Maecenas+ group, our most generous friends with a piece of Katona both literally and in a figurative sense for supporting our theater: we give them an object from one of the plays of the last three decades as a present. Additionally, they can attend our season opening- and closing meetings to get an insight into the inner life of the troup and to find news of Katona first-hand.
