Situated in the heart of Christchurch, The Isaac Theatre Royal (ITR) is a Historic Edwardian Heritage Theatre. With 1292 seats, ITR is the chosen home for Royal NZ Ballet, NZ Opera, Showbiz Christchurch, Christchurch Arts Festival, The Imperial Russian Ballet, and numerous international touring productions. Following the devastating earthquakes of 2011, a huge restoration project was undertaken and the entire auditorium and foyer areas of the Theatre were spectacularly rebuilt and restored. With flexible catering options and full bar facilities, ITR caters for a broad range of functions from performing arts through to hospitality events and also wedding receptions.
Event Delivery & Client Relations Manager, Freya Alexander, explains how Priava’s cloud-based venue and event management software has helped the team at ITR to manage the huge influx of weddings and event bookings since the re-launch of the venue following the restoration. Freya comments on some of the key features of the centralised system which supports collaboration and ensures all team members have access to the same information in real-time.
